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.

Grounded Stunt

An aimed shot incapacitates the target and throws the him forward off the secluded platform he's confined himself to. From most places it's impossible to perform a stunt because Arno catches/lands on the many ledges/surfaces nearby.

Deadly Disguise

A neat way to execute the disguise skill. Although the decoy body of the assassin is supposed to be dead, the game recognizes it as alive and allows you to copy it's graphics. Doing that, you can take out both the target and other gunman anonymously from ground level. I wasn't the first person to discover you could use disguise for the "dead' assassin. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxbe5JYGNw8 But I did find it out by myself.

Incapacitated Before the Scene

The optional scene of Arno discovering the body as a decoy can still be activated right after anonymously incapacitating the target. The result is a shot is still fired, but from a target lying on the ground.

Fastest Kill

The fastest way to assassinate the Beggar King right after the last checkpoint before his assassination. Moving and climbing fast enough, you usually reach him without any problems (getting shot down by one of the guards or seen by the target).

Superfast Escape

After the optional scene, Arno gets rushed by guards. To avoid conflict, use the disguise skill when the scene is ending. The camera is pointed right at the target at this point. Make sure to move away from the guards or Arno will go into a combat stance and lose the disguise. After getting behind cover, use the phantom blade to take out the four alert guards speedily.

There are definitely a few things in Rogue I want to try... but I have no reason to at this point. Plus, recording there is a lot harder than on the PS4, haha

Don't listen to him, Video. They don't realize your needs.

On a side note, what is your excuse for only being on sequence four?!

Ebola's not going to cure itself. (ie, work)

I have completed S5 (so the next assassination). I have not gone into S6 yet, but probably will tonight/tomorrow.

My comments for your precious video:
- I missed the dead assassin
- Maybe I should buy the disguise skill
- Good job finding things to do with a closed in target
- If you sneak up behind the target (after killing all the rest), will he chase you, perhaps leading to a turkey shoot possibility? Or even outdoors for eagle strikes and true stunts?
- I love that there are no fewer than 3 distinct ways to get to the target: climb his platform, the beams, the locked gate leading to right behind him (not shown in video).

Also forgot you were playing Rogue and got the game only a short time ago. Tongue Will be expecting some Rogue videos, no excuses.

Wasn't he mentioned before the mission? I recall a scene where an assassin spy is mentioned who didn't return.

I LOVE this skill. The ability to copy and paste the graphics of any character, be it civilian, guard, ally or even target gives a feeling of empowerment over the game.

This is one of the least interesting assassination missions due to the target being on a high platform in a small area. Luckily the stealth is a little challenging and the optional scene adds some more.

Normally he can't leave the platform. I have managed to move him off alive by getting him to a corner and parrying attacks, which has a small chance of the target slipping off. I don't think you can lead him back the way you came because of a certain part where you slide under a wall. Also, he teleports back if you become anonymous.

I didn't go that route because the pick locking skill isn't one of my priorities. I'll have to get it eventually though because of a murder mystery that takes place in a locked room.

I WAS going to comment because I just watched it this morning (because I finally progressed far enough to watch it without getting spoiled)... but now commenting would just give in to your video's needy tendencies.

No comments? My videos have feelings, you know. Crying
