The Devil’s Acre Gang Stronghold is located in the southern part of Westminster borough, just next door to the east of Victoria Station. Completing this Gang stronghold activity requires us to take out 13 Blighters who are guarding this restricted area. It’s a good idea to climb up to the rooftops and use your Eagle Vision to tag the enemies as soon as possible as there are quite a few of them. In addition to revealing enemy locations, Eagle Vision will also display the optional objectives – the Rooks that we need to capture highlighted in white.

The Blighters holed up on this area are made up of three Snipers, two Lookouts, the Leader and seven standard melee units. All 13 of them are usually patrolling set routes or stationary in set locations unless you upset them or they become alerted.

As per usual, we’ll want to focus on taking care of the three Lookouts first to prevent them from calling in reinforcements. The first Lookout can be found patrolling between the center and towards the western end of the restricted area and should be taken out first. The second Lookout can be found patrolling back and forth across the wooden bridge-like platform in the center of the area.

Tag the enemies using Eagle Vision from the rooftops (left). The first Rook is located in the courtyard (right).

There are three Rooks whom we’ll we need to rescue for the optional objective. Note that it’s a good idea to rescue them with only 4-5 enemies left though as if you free them, they’ll want to help you out and attack nearby enemies. As they can be a little delicate, this means you’ll need to keep an eye on them and try to draw enemy attacks from the Rooks to keep them alive. If any one of them dies, you’ll fail the optional objective.

The first Rook can be found on the eastern side of the central area inside the easternmost freestanding structure (there is a Sniper on the roof to help identify it). The second Rook is located in the open between the buildings in the southwest corner of the restricted area. The third rook is in a small side area at ground level adjacent to the wooden bridge running through the center of the area.

Other than those pointers above, simply kill the enemies as you see fit. Once they are all dead, the memory will be completed.
