The Jacob’s island Gang Stronghold activity is located in the northeastern portion of Southwark borough, just east of London bridge Station. Completion of the stronghold requires us to take out 10 Blighters guarding the area. As with every Gang Stronghold activity, it’s a good idea to climb up to the rooftops and use your Eagle Vision to tag the enemies as soon as possible.

The Blighters holed up on this area are made up of three Snipers, a Lookout, the Leader and five standard melee archetypes. Unless disturbed all 10 of them are usually patrolling set routes or stationary in set locations. The Lookout can be found patrolling from north to south along the western edge of the restricted area and should be taken out early on to prevent him from calling in reinforcements.

Its a good idea to take out the Lookouts first (left) before focusing on killing the leader (right).

The Leader whom we’ll need to take out undetected for the optional objective hangs out in pretty much the exact center of the restricted area and will patrol around in the open area here. To kill him, after clearing the rooftops of the two Snipers, simply get into range and either head shot the Leader with a throwing knife (if you are sure it will kill him) or air assassinate him from above.

With the Lookout and the Leader out of the way, we can go about our business of clearing out the area however you like. Once the Blighters are all dead, the memory will be completed.
