Game: Assassin’s Creed Unity (PS4 Pro)
Memory: Le Roi est Mort (Assassinate King of Beggars)
Style: The Hidden Blade / No Tools / No Detects

Arno Dorian has no need of extraneous devices or gadgetry. One blade, one Assassin, against the King of Beggars’ entire “royal” guard. Many of the King’s subjects stand in vigilant defense of their sovereign. It is not enough; as if by a phantom, Regicide is carried out.

Assassin's Creed Unity
Memory: Bottom of the Barrel
Style: Reaper / Lethal / Stealth Kills

Arno, hungover, stealth kills a bunch of guards because he wants to steal their wine. Then he goes on a murderous rampage because some other guards stole the watch his father once gave him. You don't mess with Arno's watch.

***

The wobbly and grey effect on the camera in the first part of this mission, and the similarly blurry effect on the camera in the second part of the mission is because Arno is drunk, and later, hungover. If you use Eagle Vision during this mission, Arno's head will hurt, and, because of the visual and audio effects that accompany it (screen distorted by sharp/saturated colors, ringing in ears sound effect) your own head will hurt too.

Thankfully no Eagle Vision was used during this video, because I won't subject viewers to that, even though I do appreciate the little detail that Ubisoft tacked on.

This mission's actually quite tough, believe it or not, except for the last part, where all the guards are just positioned by the Level Designer(s) in such a way that you can just play "Connect-the-Dots" with them, quickly Stealth killing them all one after the other just by killing one, walking to the next one, killing him, walking to the next one, etc.

Coming up next, sometime in the next two days is a video of the same mission, but with No Kills and No Detects... If I can actually do it. I'm not sure if it's even possible, but we'll see.

Hope you enjoy.
Safety and peace.

Assassin's Creed Unity
Memory: The Kingdom of Beggars
Style: Ghost / Non-Lethal / Flawless

Goal: Finish the mission without being detected, without killing anyone, and without knocking anyone unconscious. A phantom. A bedtime story the guards tell themselves at night, a myth. Nothing more.

***

A long time ago I'd made a video of this, but it got deleted for some reason, so I decided to make a more interesting version that uses more of Unity's mechanics. Next up is Ghosting La Halle aux Bles, which was surprisingly easy to figure out for a mission that seems so intimidating.

Leo K here, to pick these videos back up before Syndicate. This is the worst-designed target in the entire game. Everything that is broken about Unity is exacerbated by moving Arno indoors, and the worst interior areas are the sewers/catacombs due to their lack of possibilities. As a result, I do multiple checkpoints/record multi-segments for this one. It's very possible to do this entire mission in a single pass, but it is difficult as many things can go wrong that have little to do with the player's input. Cutscenes removed and video edited for maximum viewer enjoyment.

As the annotation says, you only need one Smoke Bomb to climb the column in the final area of the escape.

Assassins Creed Unity Sequence 5 Memory 2

Speedy Stealth Kills

The rules are simple. Spend most of the time from the start of the mission to the end running and killing along your route to the target, using only melee kills and whatever tools are necessary.

This run is started from the haystack in the southwest corner of the area. From a reload, throw a smoke bomb to the upper right (too far left and other guards come to investigate). Kill the guard by the haystack either from the haystack or jump out and stab while he's walking towards the smoke bomb cloud.

The next two guards are still reeling from the smoke bomb, so take them out quickly. A nearby archer can easily spot you if you aren't fast enough.

Next are four other guards. With proper timing (too soon and the smoke bomb doesn't reach them, too late and they see you), another smoke bomb aids in killing unseen. Note that the enemy on the very right is non hostile, and part of a scripted speech.

On the other side of the stone fence is a guard who is usually in range of an air kill and another guard who isn't close enough to detect that kill.

Now we have a a brute under a gazebo and, whoa! I call this kill the "grabbing from above This Person is Really Awesome kill". Actually the ledge kill in Unity has been modified so you can pull guards from the side of a ledge as well as from under, usually from the side of a window. But in this case, Arno performed the assassination from higher and farther away than should be possible.

No Guard Kills, Assassinate Marie Only
Disguise really is such a strong Ability in this game.

As requested by LuckyJaguar on Youtube.

Trying for the same style as the Marie stealth kill. Basically choose a fast route to the target and take out any guards along the way, while not being fully detected.

In this case start out running to the left of the building to avoid confronting large amounts of guards. The two posted guards won't react fast enough to block a quick double assassination. The patrolling high level guard in the courtyard will have his back turned. Inside are four other guards, two posted in front of the stairs, one patrolling on one side of the room, and the other guard on the other side. Throw a smoke bomb to avoid being seen and get the posted guards. The others might not be close enough to waste your time on.

Once you're upstairs, disguise will help if you're not patient enough to blend. You won't come under suspicion for throwing smoke bombs as long as you're in disguise. Taking out the guards there isn't necessary unless you want a completely stealthy mission. I decided to just assassinate the guards in between the target and me.

What differs from the last video is that I used disguise and smoke bombs, but still didn't use ranged kills.

Assassins Creed Unity Sequence 9 memory 3 Hoarders Marie Lévesque

I was going for a variety pack, but things were taking too long. I hope you find this interesting.

Stealth Infiltration of Parais Luxembourg

If you're fast enough the guards can be dealt with efficiently on the way to the target. From the last checkpoint start with treading the wire leading to the building and take out the rooftop gunman while his back is turned. The next two gunmen up ahead start out close enough for a double kill if you didn't lose any time.

Climb up higher, head right and get in through the open window. Go into the small room and quickly kill the guard posted outside. As you move on, two other guards patrol the hallways. Move fast enough and you usually can get them both at a window, although sometimes the game randomizes their locations.

Kill the brute from a corner and berserk the gunman on the far side of the target's room. The target will flee from the conflict. You can beat Marie to her waypoint using the stairs. Just watch out for the brute patrolling in and out of the room and any other guards patrolling around that area.

Now when Marie runs in there you can get a kill without being seen, especially by the guards who are still following her but from a distance due to her running. The way you came has been cleared of guards, so that could make a good escape route, although I haven't tested it.

Silent Rooftop Extermination and Rouille Stunt

Assassins Creed Unity Sequence 8 Memory 2 September Massacres Rouille Assassination

Silent Rooftop Extermination

A method for assassinating every enemy on the rooftop during the mission without being seen.

Gunmen in the tower- the fast easy way is activating the optional cutscene, which kills both guards. Two other ways are ledge assassinations or sneaking up from behind.

Patrolling brute on platform- Either kill him when you're out of sight of the other nearby platform guards (after killing the guards in the tower) or ledge assassinate.

Brute and gunman on one side of the roof- Wait until the brute stands near the other guard for a double assassination or double air assassination.

Guards on other side of roof- Wait for the patrolling guard's back to be turned to quickly assassinate all three of them. You move faster crouching than walking.

Remaining guards- This part used to be tricky because one of the guards and the target are facing each other. However it has been discovered that shooting Rouille once with a berserk dart prevents him from seeing you. This helps a lot in sneaking around that particular area unseen. Now you can just walk up the steps and assassinate that guard, as well as the "sleeping against rail" guard.

Target- Thanks to the berserk dart trick, Rouille is in a state where his AI has been put on hold. If you perform some actions on him such as tackle or attack, the berserk affect kicks in shortly afterward. But in the meanwhile he doesn't notice you, not even if you're fighting enemies in front of him.

The Many Ways to Kill Captaine Rose in Dead Kings DLC

Assassins Creed Unity Sequence 13 Memory 6 a Crown of Thorns.

The last memory of the sequence and assassination of Captaine Rose.

Stealth

Before the fight with Captaine Rose, it's a challenge just to get to him without being seen.

Using just the hidden blade it's not that hard to make your way through the area. Also took the opportunity to achieve the double assassinations challenge.

When you start down the large flight of stairs, wait for the two guards to pass by and quickly assassinate them. Then kill the raider captain from the safety of a cover. This will cause some nearby guards to flee, making your stealth path easier.

Continuing along the route, corner kill the stationary guard. I've gotten see before by the patrolling guard during this kill, but with the timing in the video I haven't.

Now wait till the patrolling guard can't see you and hang off the edge. By this time some guards will notice the bodies of your first kill. Shimmy your way across and kill the patrolling guard, then the two posted guards. You will complete the double assassinations challenge.

When you reach the next two guards, keep an eye out to your right for guards. Kill them when the coast is clear. You won't have to worry about enemies for the rest of this as long as you keep to the roofs.

Early Death

Now that you've reached the target, time to pre-kill him. Getting close to the area starts the scene, so lure him with a firecracker from a safe distance away. Other guards will also arrive, which can be dealt with using poison bombs.

Now sneak up on the target and... he can't be assassinated or knocked out. Immune to poison bombs and berserk darts. Combine that with lots of health and you're looking at a high level boss.

Now here's the thing: If you kill him then it actually causes the scene to start. Not sure why, maybe killing him is supposed to start the next checkpoint regardless of what part you are in the memory.

Anyway, he respawns after the cutscene, so the pre-assassination is just for fun.
