Boston Brawlers

Boston Brawler Side-Missions

The side-missions for the Boston Brawlers are short, relatively easy and probably won;t cause you too much grief. The missions require that you track down all of the old Boston Brawler tournament Champions and best them in hand-to-hand combat.

Part 1: Peter Bunyon

You’ll find Peter Bunyon in the North-eastern part of the Troy’s Wood hunting region. Approach him and hit interact to begin the fight…

To beat him, dispose of his three buddies and then focus on him. To finish quickly, simply counter attack him when he attacks you and throw in a couple of melee attacks when he stumbles

Part 2: The Sailor

You’ll find The Sailor in New York on a boat docked just to the south of Fort Washington. Approach him and hit interact to begin the fight.

The Sailor is essentially the same as Peter Bunyan. To beat him, dispose of his three mates and then turn your attention to the Sailor. To finish him off quickly, simply counter attack him when he attacks you and throw in a couple of melee attacks when he stumbles.

Part 3: The Smuggler

You’ll find The smuggler in Boston in an open area on the western side of South Boston. Approach him and hit interact to begin the fight.

The Smuggler is actually a pair of guys. Again, both of these guys are essentially carbon copies of the Sailor and Peter Bunyan. As with the previous fights, dispose of their entourage and then focus on them. To finish quickly, counter attack as they attack you and throw in a couple of melee attacks when they stumble.

Part 4: The Stinger

You’ll find The Stinger in the central-eastern part of the Diamond Basin hunting region. Approach him and hit interact to begin the fight…

The Stinger is a little different from the previous enemies, as he will be able to counter attack you on a counter attack, ruling that move out. Instead, you will need to counter and then hit the break defense button. Follow this up with a few additional melee attacks. repeat until he goes down

Part 5: The Ropebeater

The Ropebeater hangs out in one of the ship building workshops in Boston. Approach him and hit interact to begin the fight.

The Ropebeater is a little tricker than the previous fights as you will be unable to hit him at all unless you use environmental elements. To beat him down, you will need to counter him near one of the barrels scattered around the room and then throw him into them. After 4-5 barrels, the Ropebeater will be defeated.

Part 6: The Merchant

The Merchant is located in North New York just to the south of Fort Division. Approach him and hit interact to begin the fight.

The Merchant, like the Ropebeater is a little different from the rest of the enemies we've been beating up before. The Ropebeater is easily dispatched by using the 'break defence' command, rather than a counter, which you should follow up with a few quick punches.

Part 7: The Tournament

After the first 6 fights, you’ll need to return to Boston and to the brewery. For some reason in my game, the objective marker for the Brewery did not show up. It is located in south-eastern corner of Boston’s North District in the courtyard of the building closest to the docks. Approach him and hit interact to begin the tournament.

  • Fight 1: **The Redcoat** - This guy is fairly easy as he'll be susceptible to all of the counter-attacking options at your disposal. Once you get him down to half health, a scene will play. When you regain control, he will now have full health again and a sword. Disarm him and then continue to press the attack until he goes down.
  • Fight 2: **The Docker** - After taking all of the Docker's goons out. Counter attack him until he falls over.
  • Fight 3: **The Surgeon** - This fight will be a little different to the previous ones, the Surgeon will poison Connor, causing the screen to be a little fuzzy and out of focus. Other than that, the fight plays out essentially the same as the previous one. After eliminating his friends, take him out.
  • Fight 4: **The Huntress** - Kill all of the Huntress's minions and then you can focus on the Huntress herself. She is susceptible to counter efense breaks and throws. During random points during the fight a second Huntress will apppear and tackle you. This will reset the health bar. This will happen a few times, so just keep pressing the attack until you knock her out.
For finishing off the Huntress, Connor will be crowned champion of the Boston Brawlers and with that, the side-mission draws to a close. That can mean only one thing, its time to go and complete all of those Boston Brawler challenges!
