The marker to begin this memory will appear in the far northeastern portion of The Strand borough, just outside of the St. Pancras Station once all of the previous nine associate activities have been completed. As with every Gang War in the game, it consists of two parts an initial fight against a group of Blighters, followed by a battle with the Gang Leader – Victor Lynch.

Note: If you have previously eliminated the Gang Leader during your conquest of the borough, you’ll only need to defeat a group of Blighters to complete the activity.

The initial battle in the City of London requires us to eliminate a group of Blighters made up of melee units who are not afraid to use their pistols for ranged attacks if they are not being targeted. You’ll need to eliminate 13 of them before being able to proceed onto the next phase of the memory.

After clearing the initial group of Blighters, the Gang Leader will enter the area to attack you. Victor Lynch is a stronger version of a standard melee enemy dual wielding cane-swords which means he can attack quickly and can cause a great deal of damage in a hurry. Use guard break often to lower his defense, break up your melee attacks with ranged attacks to keep the damage flowing and counter when you see his health bar flash yellow.

The gang Leader is not all that difficult, but can still hurt you with counter attacks if you use regular melee attacks on him when his guard is up or if you get a little lazy with your counters.
