The Killer Suits are Nicole Horne's personal hitmen and bodyguards.


The Killer Suits are part of the security forces serving Aesir Corporation and take part in many missions ranging from VIP protection to assassinations.

They are always wearing dark business suits with ties and white shirts.  Most of them wear sunglasses and have earpieces with mouth microphones.  Some wear trenchcoats while discarding the earpiece and microphone.

They are probably the hardest type of enemy to beat as they are heavily armed, with Ingrams or Colt Commandos. Some even wield Jackhammers or M79s.

They share similar weapons to the Mercenaries, but what makes the Killer Suits harder is the fact that they have more precise aim and they are known to dive through the air, similar to Max. However, they don't shoot as they dive.


They were hired by Nicole Horne to protect Aesir Corporation and to kill its enemies. According to one of them, the job pays big time and they are very happy doing what they do.

They are first seen in Max Payne when they arrive at Punchinello manor to kill Angelo Punchinello and Max Payne. As Max confronts Punchinello, three suited killers burst into the room, killing the Don, but are unable to kill Max. As he leaves the office, Payne finds himself surrounded by more of the hired killers and a woman named Nicole Horne. Max surrenders and Horne injects him with an overdose of Valkyr, leaving him to die and Horne to leave with the Killer Suits to Cold Steel.

After Max's confrontation with B.B., the Killer Suits arrive to protect him. They try to prevent him from reaching the bottom floor, but fail.

The Killer Suits even drive a black van and perform multiple drive-bys on Max before it somehow catches on fire and blows up.

Max eventually reaches B.B. and many Killer Suits, who are armed with Jackhammers, attempting to protect him. They are all killed and so is B.B.

While Max is speaking with Alfred Woden and the Inner Circle members, the Killer Suits arrive and kill them all, except for Max, who jumps out of a window and Woden who fakes his death.

Then the Suits and the Mercenaries search the Asgard Building for Max, but he shoots his way past many of them.

When Max reaches the exit, a Suit with a Jackhammer and two Suits with dual Ingrams alongside three mercenaries have one final shoot-out with Max and lose.

After Max breaks into the Aesir Headquarters in search of Nicole Horne, the Killer Suits are assigned to defend her and the building.

After Max and Mona's encounter, a Killer Suit shoots Mona in the head but is then killed by Max.

Many Killer Suits and Aesir Security guards are killed by Max as he makes his way to the roof, where the last of them arrive, one of them carrying a M79, in one last attempt to kill Max but they lose and are wiped out.


  • The Killer Suits, particularly the ones in dark business suits and sunglasses, could be a reference to the Agents from the 1999 science-fiction-action film, The Matrix
  • Some Killer Suits are heard saying that they only kill as a regular 9 to 5 job and therefore show no loyalty to Aesir and kill only for money.
  • It is unlikely that "Killer Suits" are the official name for them. It is only what Max refers to them as.
