Objectives and Walkthrough[]

Mina contacts once you enter the gelato shop. The first two dialogue nodes do not affect the outcome of the mission, however, your choices do matter once you start interacting with the shop owner. Reaching a total of 3 suspicion points or selecting "Execute" at any point will end the mission with a scripted shootout. Staying below 3 suspicion points will end the mission peacefully with your cover intact.

Choices and Consequences[]

Consequences in Following Missions[]

  • Murdering the Gelato Man will attract the attention of the authorities. This will prompt negative comments from Conrad Marburg during Contact Jibril Al-Bara/Halbech Informant. There is no direct reputation loss, but you will miss the chance to get +2 reputation with him for not killing civilians in Rome, and potentially get a -1 penalty from Henry Leland, if the Aggressive option with him is chosen in the same mission.
  • There is a dossier on Conrad Marburg that can be only unlocked by doing this mission. If you wish to turn Marburg to your side or manipulate him into fighting you at the end of the game, and obtain the Agent of Change perk, which requires 83% of his dossier unlocked, then this mission is non-optional.


If you choose the Veteran agent history, the Gelato Man will briefly appear as a hallucination on the PDA screen at the beginning of the game when you first talk with Mina.
