    At launch, Hitman 2 (developed by IO Interactive) had a bug where if a player threw an object at an NPC, it would follow the NPC around till it vanquished its target.

    IO Interactive has embraced this bug and turned it into a feature. Introducing: the ICA Executive Briefcase MKII.

    04_Best_Case_Scenario.
    Here it is in action:

    Nope, you just unlock it after completing a challenge.

    I doubt the bug is difficult at all to fix. It just gained a lot of popularity due to its hilariousness and the devs approved, I don't see the issue.

    90% sure a developer coded it on purpose originally as inside joke or for him/her to get thru the level easier.

    This reminds me of the Creeper in Minecraft. The creeper's texture in reality is a bugged version of the pig's texture, and it made it into the game.
