Near the beginning of sequence 9 you meet up with Commander George Washington. After the scene you can talk to him two more times, then the fun begins.

Setup
After talking to Washington all you can, he can be targeted with a ranged weapon. This doesn't kill him of course, but does cause him to momentarily disappear as well as every time you move him.

You'll have to deal with the soldiers in that area of course. After that start moving him west toward water. Yes, drowning still works as a way of killing when all else fails. He may try to run away, but I just shoot him again and that seems to help.

Also it seems the optional conversation with Washington after the scene might be available only once in the game. I tried talking to him again a second time during a replay, and the option wasn't available.

Assassin's Creed III - Silent Extermination - Fort Monmouth

Finally, here it is, the last episode in my massive AC3 stealth saga. Due to what is some bad design in my opinion, as well as some sloppiness on my part, it's imperfect, but I'm proud of what I've achieved.

Assassin's Creed III - Silent Extermination - Fort Duquesne

Just keeping on rolling. This one also has no corpses found. Here are my comments:

Starting out I really wasn't sure if this one would be possible. This Fort has such varied terrain and there are guards in all sorts of awkward spots. This took a lot of patience and had less movement than I would like, but it was still satisfying to complete what seemed impossible.

Almost everything I want to say about this run is covered in the annotations in the video itself, but I do want to point out that at 3:20 I'm quickly checking to make sure the soldier on the platform is facing away before I use the Rope Dart. It happens too fast to put in a readable annotation, but it's a significant detail. Of course, there's also the big mistake near the end. Sorry about that. It's definitely possible to kill that soldier in a way that doesn't cause him to fall from the platform, I just didn't want to start over again at that point.

Assassin's Creed III - Silent Extermination - Fort St-Mathieu

First, a request. I play this game through a Steam shortcut to get the Steam overlay in game, but the latest Uplay update unfortunately seems incompatible with the Steam overlay. If anyone knows a way of fixing this without cracking the game, please tell me.

This was another extremely challenging run, but one without compromises. SSI is on again, for the same reason as before, and it doesn't give me any real advantage. I would have had to wait for the Captain to come around again before moving to kill the pair of soldiers at 4:45 to stay safe, but that would have been the only big change.

Taking the Forts with Perfect Stealth One Last Time: Silent Exterminations

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZ6EQqlfUBU

(promoted to the front page by Lisa)

It's been a little while, hasn't it?

After completing perfect stealth pacifist runs of every Fort using only fists I decided to try the opposite of pacifism. For this final challenge I'll kill every single enemy within the walls of the Forts (literally within the walls, since there are often many enemies outside but still in the restricted zone that would be extremely tedious or impossible to kill under my restrictions) using only the Hidden Blades except where absolutely necessary, and to make things even sweeter I'll save the Captains for last. I'm not sure if I'll be able to do every Fort, but I'll certainly try.

The first episode, Fort Washington, is here, and just like my previous videos on it it's a two-for-one deal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZ6EQqlfUBU

I don't think it's possible to do a Barehanded version of this challenge without relying heavily on Smoke Bombs, so I won't be trying that. Feel free to try to prove me wrong.

I'll keep this thread updated whenever I post a new video in this series. Enjoy!

"Meet Me in the Afterlife" - Haytham Kenway's Early Death

http://youtu.be/WNSR_0CZiTQ

Haytham Kenway's Early Death
After the last scene in the memory, you have to save Haytham, resulting in a fight. Here's a way to avoid being detected. You'll need to have purchased the gun that shoots three bullets at once. With it you can take out all three of the men holding Haytham captive at once, avoiding detection.

After that the other soldier targets appear, but since you are anonymous they won't attack on sight. Kill four of them, using poison to avoid detection. Make sure you called a horse to replenish the poison (crafted saddle bags required).

After the four other guards die, Haytham will run away. Put him between you and one of the guards. As long as the guard can be targeted, you can throw the poison. Guess what? Haytham is affected by the poison! Of course you shouldn't use the poison too early, or you will desynch shortly afterward. Wait for the four guards to die first. A good time is when Haytham starts talking. Shortly afterwards the game doesn't record his health and he runs away.

Taking the Forts with perfect stealth - pure pacifism and no detection meters

[Adapted for the front page by stabguy]

I've created a video series I think many people on this forum might like.

I've been playing the Assassin's Creed series since 2010, going through all the main entries, and I've always been interested in the design of their stealth gameplay. AC3 offers what I think are the best opportunities for exploring its possibilities yet in the Forts, but even still most people will end up killing their way through them. I wasn't satisfied with this, so I decided to do the opposite.

I challenged myself to take every Fort without killing or incapacitating any enemies outside of the Captains, which are required, even going so far as to make sure no guards or civilians were ever killed in powder reserve explosions, while keeping interactions with them to a minimum. I would also remain totally unseen; you won't spot any detection meters in this series ever, unless I'm trying to demonstrate something afterward.

I'd be happy to answer any questions people here might have, and I also hope someone can answer a couple of questions I have after going through this challenge.

Silent Clearing and George Washington's Death

The Braddock Expedition - Silent Extermination (full synch)
At the beginning of the memory you have to kill a target to use his clothes as a disguise. The full synch is to kill at least two guards without being detected. In actuality the game developers meant BEFORE being detected. The mission is designed so that you are detected by the other guards after you kill the target no matter what. Therefore the only way to remain anonymous throughout the mission is to silently kill all the guards before killing the target. As an added challenge I reamain completely unseen (no yellow or red triangles) and use only fists. Here's the step by step process:

Guard #1: Start out with the guard standing by the haystack. At the beginning of the checkpoint turn right, and then left.

Guard #2: From the haystack use whistle to lure a nearby guard (yes, you can use whistle even while killing someone from the haystack).

Guard #3: From the haystack move right along the tall grass. Be careful not to bump into the Indian hiding in the grass, or you're likely to be seen. From the grass move into the haystack and kill the guard standing by it. If you kill the guard while in the grass you might be seen.

Guard #4: A guard walks by the haystack. Whistle when he gets close. There's a glitch where he isn't lured by the whistle (usually happens if you use whistle when he's farther away). If that happens you can still kill him when he walks close enough to the haystack.

Guard #5 and 6: The next two guards are tricky. They stand close together, and it doesn't help that the target walks in that area. Here's a way to separate them. Go behind the large rock and whistle. Then hide in the tall grass. One of them will search the nearby haystack. Kill the other guard before he walks back to his post. Then kill the other guard when he is lured by the dead body.

Guard #7: The last guard is standing by the tents. Kill him when the target isn't walking in that area.

Target: By this time the target will see one of the dead bodies. Kill him anytime you want.

You've Forced My Hand (and Blade) - Edward Braddock Mini-Variety Pack

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEew1ELg0S0
[Front-paged. -stabguy]

Sat down today trying to come up with some fun things to do with Edward Braddock. This video has three different assassinations. I call it a Mini variety pack, not because there's not enough, but because there is an obvious missing that I was not able to accomplish in 20+ tries.

Braddock Doesn't Fight Like a Bulldog... - Nothing special about this one. It's a basic chase after the Bulldog with no weapon equipped. Haytham hip-checks Braddock and he dies instantly. I thought someone with a nickname of Bulldog would fight a little better than that.

Braddock's Swirly - In this assassination, Haytham plays bully to his old friend and dunks him under the water. I guess Braddock can't hold his breath, as Haytham drowns him. The only way to get to him while he's still in the water is to call a horse. You have to stay within 50m of Braddock before desyncing... and I was close in this play through. (Yes, I know this isn't death by water, but rather death from his skull crushing into the ground).

Eagle Strike - This one took some set up. First, you need to break Braddock's AI. To do this, simply do a "gentle push" on him at the end of the chase. This will cause him to think he's a regular soldier and he will chase you. Now you run to the cliffs. Once you break Braddock's line of sight and return to incognito mode, he has a case of waypoint separation and stands still. From here you can push him into position for the Eagle Strike. Yes, this counts as an Eagle Strike - if you miss the cliff, you die.
