Meeting (Mysteriously) Adjourned: Differential Notoriety

Differential Notoriety

The five targets in the Meeting Adjourned mission are dispersed in a small room with many guards, which makes this mission seem like an unlikely candidate for anonymous poisoning. Fortunately, the developers made an unusual choice in the design of this mission: The room is not a high alert area. Instead, they elevated the awareness levels of the targets so that they behave as if you were Notorious, which is functionally similar to making the room a high alert area - except that the developers did not change the guards in the room correspondingly. As a result, the targets and guards behave differently in this mission, which is what I exploit in this mission design to poison all of the targets while remaining unseen (no yellow bars) to all of the guards.

This contract is slightly harder than the others when going for stealth. If you get anywhere near the guard, he will run. Also, if you kill any guards behind him without him seeing them, he will still run.

10 Brutes in 60 seconds. The usual advice for this contract mission is to use smoke bombs and/or poison. Smoke bombs disable your opponents for easy killing, and the poison delays the start of the timer. (The countdown starts when the first Brute dies.) This video uses other strategies that let you kill everyone using only hidden blades.

Hyperblending is closely related to superblending. If you are not already familiar with superblending, please read this article first:

This is a little something I found a while ago after watching Ian do the Having a Blast mission. He stood on the edge of a courtesan group and killed guards as they walked past .However with this trick you will be able to be mobile and use it. Many of you may already know this but then again there are bound to be some users here who don't

This trick allows you to stay blended with a group of courtesans and walk anywhere you please, right up to guards and kill them without the courtesans dispersing. However you cannot do it with one group, and I will explain why

"Superblending" refers to the unintended ability for Ezio to remain hidden (blended) while performing actions that would ordinarily attract attention. Superblending is an incredibly useful exploit that can be used widely throughout the game. Before discussing superblend, let's establish the concepts of "blending grace period" and "standing/non-standing surfaces."

The Mysterious Death of Marco Barbarigo

The goal of this mission is to steal the Golden Mask from Dante Moro, sneak into Marco's party, sneak onto Marco's guarded ship, poison him, and escape - all without killing anyone other than Marco, and without being seen at all (no yellow bars over the guards). For added challenge, I don't hire anyone, such as courtesans. This video was recorded in one continuous take.

Easy and Robust
Port Authority may be the most difficult mission in all of AC2. This is a nice easy way to complete the mission for those having difficulty.
