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.

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.

On Ubi's official Assassin's Creed forum there was a topic in which the OP was asking if anyone knew a "clean" way of killing La Touche in this sequence, so no detection and using the hidden blade to kill the target. Since this is very hard for this target, a "challenge" was made. And as a hiddenblader I obviously had to rise to the occasion Tongue
Thought you guys might also be interested in the result.

The video is pretty straight forward on how to do it. I try to aim my second money pouch on the railing/bannister of the stage to get the biggest crowd on the execution stage. Then I try to aim the 3rd money pouch just right so that there is a blend group I can use to walk onto the stage undetected but still leave enough people on the stage so that I can blend there. I position myseelf behind the guillotine so that the guard opposite La Touche does not see me. I quickly check to my left to see if any guards are looking at my direction, and if not, I throw the cherry bomb. It has to be just far enough so that none of the guards to the left of the stage get distracted. I then walk up to La Touche and kill him. After the cinematic I quickly exit the stage using the cart and I walk into the crowd without the guards noticing me.

In this video I show a few ways of killing Lafreniére that I though were pretty cool/interesting. This assassination takes place during sequence 5 in memory 3.

Puppetmaster

In this part I let the graveyard caretakers and their friends(green NPC eagle vision, who will help you if you kill the bodyguards before Lafreniére arrives, do most of the work for me. I throw a cherry bomb at a certain spot which will attract a couple of guards, the allies and Lafreniére . They will start fighting and shooting at each other and one of the allies takes out the target for me and I wait until the rest of the guards are distracted by the remaining allies who have heard the gunshots and have gone up from underground to investigate.
Then all I have to do is silently finish Lafreniére off for a completely unseen kill.
I dubbed it puppetmaster because I am sort of pulling all the strings from the shadows and didn't know what else to call it Tongue

Blitz
This one is pretty straightforward.
I jump in the haystack closest to the target and before the wait timer is full I quickly jump out in the right direction so I can instantly drop a smoke and run to the target. The actual time it takes from spawning to killing Lafreniére is around 6 seconds, maybe even very slightly below 6 seconds.

Assassins Creed Unity le Peletier Assassination

I have two people to thank for this.

First Slembroccoli for the beginning route:
http://thehiddenblade.com/looking-future-again-thread-text-walls#comment...

Then InTehVaria for more on that route:
http://thehiddenblade.com/almost-perfect-minimalist-stealth-dinner-engag...

You start out climbing in through the open window near the poisoned wine. Go up the stairs and locate the target. If you're successful you'll hear him ask the butler for wine. Now go back out the way you came.

After climbing to the roof, make your way to the window infiltration. On the opposite side are some windows that are normally closed but open after you are in the same area as le Peletier. Ubisoft meant this as a way of escape after killing the target.

I ended up changing things, scrapping my original plan because the route slembroccoli wrote out is much more efficient and it turned out my planned route had a serious flaw. The main run in the video is exactly what slembroccoli described here: http://www.thehiddenblade.com/looking-future-again-thread-text-walls#com.... It is indeed the best way of doing this mission in a minimalist fashion, which I think is pretty sad honestly. Regardless, awesome work, slembroccoli. I included my original infiltration route as well, after the main run, and I talk about its flaw in the video's annotations.

Happy holidays everyone.

The Many Ways to Assassinate le Roi des Thunes King of Beggars

[Front-paged. -stabguy]

Assassins Creed Unity le Roi des Thunes the King of beggars. This assassination takes place in sequence 4.

Pacifist

Only use the knockout ability. To remain anonymous I had to take out two other guards. Stealthy, except for when the target spotted me for a brief moment. The game requires you to kill the target with the hidden blade, but strangling him first helps with the idea of a mercy killing.

Pummeled

The closest thing to a punching bag. Sneak up, unsheath your weapon and beat him to a pulp.

Employee of the Month

Killed by one of his own. Berserk the gunman on the other side of the room. Make sure you kill him right after he shoots the target or he will detect you after that.

Jump Kill

A mini stunt from the highest available beam nearby, using a cherry bomb to make the target face away.
