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: 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 4 Memory 1 The Kingdom of Beggars la Touche Assassination.

In Arno's hunt for the King of Beggars he first meets la Touche, a Templar agent working for him. Although it was intended you spare his life and assassinate him later in the game, it is indeed possible to kill him without failing the mission.

Locating la Touche

At the beginning you have to find la Touche. This is the first opportunity to attempt an assassination. You can't get close to him without starting the scene, so I berserked a guard to go after him. Alas, la Touche can be targeted but not attacked. The poisoned guard stays there for the scene and afterward.

Another thing about the scene is you can use the disguise skill during the beginning and not lose it until the scene is partway done.

Tailing la Touche

Following the target, you cannot kill him without desynching. During this I show a short conversation he has with Marquis de Sade, who first appeared during the previous scene. At first I tried getting in the huddle of the conversation with a money pouch, but then the target walks past and the conversation gets skipped.

My attempt at getting away with an assassination at this part is to kill la Touche right as a scene is starting. This proved hard as either I would desynch or the scene would start before I could perform the kill. The closest I got was starting a low profile hidden blade assassination as the scene was starting. Arno continues the animation during the scene, stabbing midair. There is also no blood on la Touche, so I wouldn't count it count it as a kill. Standing by the entrance of the gate also gets Arno in the scene.

The Early Death of La Touche

Now that you're done tailing la Touche, all there is left to do is interrogate him to find out where le Roi des Thunes is. After that scene, la Touche remains shackled to the wall. He still has the regular guard AI, which allows you to lure him with gunshots and cherry bombs (gunshots are more effective, but be wary of other nearby guards who will be drawn to you).

Sometimes la Touche will lean over the wall when investigating. If he goes far enough you can target him for a kill. Depending how, the target will die on either side of the wall.

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.
