(Volume for this one is lower than usual. My apologies for that.)

Sequence 1: A Spanner In The Works from AC Syndicate.
Rupert Ferris Assassinated and Area Escaped without any other kills. All cutscenes removed.
One enemy kills himself by accident, by jumping off the train during the escape. Sad
* * *
RULES:
1) No Kills or Knockouts except Targets, unless Required.
2) No Detects except upon Assassination Moment
- Awareness Meters are allowed.
- I will try to avoid being detected during Assassinations as well, but if it's necessary, it's fine.
3) EQUIPMENT:
- Wear the Upgraded Beer Collector Belt for Jacob and the Upgraded Aegis Cloak for Evie.
4) No Side Objectives
5) No HUD except Awareness Meters and Tool Indicator

This is the first mission of AC Syndicate, and a tutorial mission too.

I cut out the very beginning of the mission because no true Stealth is possible there. First, you are forced to Air Assassinate a guard, then you're forced to do a quick Combat Tutorial against three more. The beginning of this video starts after I've already done that. Be aware that I do have the Gang Skill that disables Blighter aggression outside of Restricted Areas, and that I'm wearing the Stealthiest Belt for Jacob (Beer Collector Belt). The Master Assassin outfit just looks cool, so I wore that for that reason, not for its bonus (which isn't Stealth anyway.)

Once inside the Ironworks, the route is pretty simple, just stay high and move toward the destination. The only indoor guard that's any trouble at all is the one standing directly in your way through a doorway. Tossing a knife at the wall to his front-right will make him turn his vision cone that way, letting you crouch-walk past him. The distraction effect on Knives is a bit buggy in this game, but it works here.

Escaping on the train is based on a timer, rather than Kills. You can just run around and dodge everything until the time's almost up. In the video, when it gets close enough, I start running to the front of the train, just for style. Smile

People have been congratulating you on being the only one to not kill enemies during the train sequence. If you were playing as the sister, could you use the invisible perk to remain undetected during that part?

Potentially, depends on how quickly they first saw me and where I chose to Chameleon. If an enemy walks into you while you're invisible, the Chameleon stops and your cover is blown. So it's an unsure thing. This mission is a Jacob Mission, so we'll never know~

Never! Nothing is true, everything is permitted, after all. Good luck! xD

I didn't even watch this video yet, but I didn't kill any enemies in the train sequence either. I'll have to watch your method and see if we did the same thing.

We did not.

I just ran to the front of the train until the "ghost" showed up, then managed to hang off the train between cars. They never walked up to me, so I just hung on the train the whole time, no running required. Heck, I even saw the guy standing on the platform near the train that jumps on the train for you. Since I was anonymous, he didn't even jump on the train. So my train was a lot less eventful than even yours. haha Wink

Is that consistent? Does it work every time? Smile If it does, good stuff.

It worked the first and only time I played the memory, haha. I was just running forward to try to outrun them to the front of the train because I thought I needed to get to the engine for some reason.
