The Surgeon Early Death

In the memory The Surgeon, you are first introduced to the target Silas in a scene. While playing through I discovered a way to assassinate Charles Lee. Position him so that he's around a corner. Then whistle for a guard. When the guard gets close enough on the other side of him, the weapon icon will light up to show you can do a corner assassination.

Be sure to use a smoke bomb so you won't get seen otherwise you'll fail the mission. I tried this on Charles earlier in the memory with no luck. Even if I had been successful, the game would have desynched me for an ally dying. I guess the game developers weren't worried about Charles dying in this part of the memory.


The fastest way I could kill Silas. Right after the obligatory human shield tutorial, run straight to the fortress. There will be a brief lag when you get close from the game loading NPCs. climb up at the place shown and shoot Silas. Luckily I didn't have to move the camera since he's right in front of you, although you may target another enemy next to him or if enemies are passing close by (the chances of which I'm not sure of).

The fastest way I was able to liberate the fort. Luckily there is no restricted area in the place, which makes stealth a whole lot easier. Start off by using the fast travel station in the northeast part of New York (sure beats having to run all the way there). After that move along the wall until you reach the low hanging beams. You can reach the one on the right by either running up the wall under it or running up the wall beside it and kicking to the side. Keep moving forward along the wall and turn left. Run straight ahead to destroy the powder reserve. Head back the way you came. Once you are back on the beam, run up the wall and kick to the left to reach the cannon above. From here you can shoot the fort's captain, who is patrolling below on his horse (shooting with a bow is a little slower, but doesn't attract as much attention). As it just so happens, the flag you need to lower is right in that area. I could have done this several seconds faster, but it didn't need to be perfect.

Air Assassination and Stunt
The highest spot in the fort is the top of the flag pole. Yes, you can climb up it. In the captain's travel route there is a spot where he can be air assassinated. Lock onto him to avoid accidentally air assassinating one of the nearby guards. The cool thing about this is that by the time you've killed him his horse turns the corner, keeping you anonymous from the nearby guards. The stunt assassination is basically the same concept, except you manually jump in his direction and assassinate him off his horse right when you hit the ground.

Colonial Reinforcements
Colonial soldiers (blue coats) and British soldiers (red coats) attack each other on sight. I use that to my advantage by having the captain killed by the opposing side. For that you need to be detected by the captain first. Being detected will alert the nearby enemies, so it would be wise to take some of them out first. Then lead the captain to the cannon previously shown in the video. If you can get him on it he may jump to the lower beam, then to the ground. Since the captain can easily defeat soldiers without dying, disarm him to change the odds. The soldiers in question are at the fast travel entrance. Now here's the thing: When you reach them while in open conflict, they start to attack you. So I had to kill them afterward.

Thomas Hickey Dies Where He Stands
[Front-paged, sight unseen. This better be good! -stabguy]

Spoiler Warning for those who didn't complete sequence eight.

An Average Day in the life of a Prisoner
Some humor earlier in the sequence. During the time you eavesdrop on a conversation in the cell, there are two objects you can interact with (besides the wall and bed, which are required). You can knock on the cell door, which gets a reaction from a guard. There's also a bucket by the bed (to eat from?).

Avoiding a fight
Rather than directly attack one of the prisoner targets, go to a corner and whistle. This will get their attention. You have the ability to use your fists only when in the area where they were originally standing, so lure one back to that area (make sure none of them are nearby when you knock him out, or you might desynch). When the fight starts, they are out of the ring of people, past an invisible barrier. You have to restart the checkpoint to get farther in the game.

After escaping the gallows, climb back on stage. The hood Charles Lee put on you is still there, hovering in midair. It won't be there if you restart the checkpoint.

Thomas Hickey
I tried performing a stylish kill on the target, but never had enough time (either he kills all of George Washington's bodyguards, or they kill him). However I got lucky enough for a running civilian to bump into him when he barely started moving. This allowed me to kill him where he pretty much was.

The Showdown with Daniel Cross
[Front-paged. - stabguy]

Spoiler Warning for those that haven't done the second and third Desmond missions.
Daniel Cross appears in all three missions. Here's the most creative video I could make concerning him.

Stealth Knockout
In the second mission, when Desmond runs into Daniel, a chase starts, followed by a fight. A way to do this stealthfully would be to hide in the tall grass nearby. You can't do this while seen, so hide behind an object, in this case a tree, to block your enemies' line of sight. You may have to leave the room first if you are unsuccessful. Now just wait for the enemies to give up searching for you.

I also managed to record a glitch. There's a chance Daniel might search for you past the boundary of the place (invisible barrier at the end where the thick crowds are). I tried an air assassination and fell through the floor.

Starting from the checkpoint after Daniel crashed through a window, you're forced to chase him. The fastest way I managed was to air assassinate him after he swings from the bar and gets in a standing position.
Other possible faster ways:
1. Somehow catch up to him and knock him off, where he will fall to his death. Seeing you're about as fast as him, you would probably have to get lucky.
2. Jump straight to the ground and run to where he will land after swinging from the last bar. I haven't been able to get there fast enough.
