Optional Objectives:

  • There are no optional objectives for this mission.

This mission will begin automatically upon re-entering the Animus.

Part 1: Exploration

Have Edward follow Kidd away from the beach and along the dirt path we used in the previous mission. Eventually he will lead you to an interesting looking, glowing stone structure – this is a Mayan Stelae, a type of collectible that will be available after this mission. As you arrive at the statue a scene will play.

After the scene, activate Eagle Vision when prompted and then climb to the very top of the statue. Once on top, a mini-game will begin. We will need to align glowing lines and rings with objects in the environment. Once you have arranged the lines in the correct locations, the game will take you out of Eagle Vision and an artifact location will be displayed.

In this case, the circle needs to be placed on the tree stump and the two squares aligned on top of the two square pillars.

There are numerous Mayan Stelae puzzles to solve in the game but most are straight-forward once you get the hang of it.

Once you have done it correctly, the game will give you a new waypoint marker. Go over and check it out and dig on the spot with the button prompt to find an artifact. After another brief conversation, the game will take you to the world map screen to show you the locations of all the other Mayan Stelae. When you are ready, exit the menu.

Now we need to follow Kidd again. Continue through the jungle until he leads you into a man-made area. Climb the staircase in here to the top. A scene will play. At this time, you will find some master assassin gear sitting behind a series of locks on the wall; we already have the key to one of the locks.

To find the other four keys (and that sweet looking armour), we need to complete the Templar Hunt side-missions: Opia Apito , Rhona Dinsmore , Anto and Vance Travers . See the side-mission section of the guide for additional details.

This armour is definitely worth getting as soon as you can. It greatly reduces any damage you take.

After another brief conversation, the game will take you to the world map screen to show you the locations of all the other Templar Hunt mission locations. When you are ready exit the menu. Exit the building and return to the docks. Check out the waypoint for a scene to end the mission.
