There are 12 assassin intercept tasks in Assassin’s Creed Rogue and all of them have you locating a specific target in a series of different locations and hunting down and killing assassins within a nearby area before a set timer expires. For each assassination intercept you completed, you will earn 1500L, with a bonus 200L rewarded for killing all of the attackers within the time limit.

Each mission begins by finding a pigeon (marked with a pigeon icon on the map), sneaking up on it and hitting the on-screen prompt to capture it. This will give you the option to begin the task.

Intercepts are marked by a pigeon icon on the map (left). Approach and catch the pigeon (right) to begin an intercept.

There are five intercepts in New York, four in River Valley and three located in the North Atlantic region. The first 11 assassin intercept side-missions will be available from memory sequence 03 onwards. The twelfth and final assassin intercept will become available once you have completed the first eleven.


  • For completing all of the assassin intercepts you will unlock the Templar Enforcer Outfit.
  • For completing all assassin intercepts, you’ll earn the achievement/trophy ‘This War of Mine’.
