Memory 02 - Where there is Smoke

1. Air assassinate a guard.
Money: 800 £ Bonus: 125 £
XP: 700 XP Bonus: 150 XP
Gear: N/A.

Part 1: Infiltrate the Factory

Upon starting this memory, make your way a little further down the street until you reach the target building. Inside this building there are a few guards patrolling about and three hay bales that we will need to interact with in order to continue.

Note: This portion of the memory contains the optional objective and to earn this we’ll need to air assassinate one of the guards inside.

The easiest way inside (and to get the optional objective) is to climb to the roof of the factory. There is a guard up here we can deal with before heading inside via the open skylight here.

After entering the factory via the skylight, maneuver around the support beams at the top of the room until you can target one of the guards on the upper level walkways of the interior with an air assassination for the optional objective.

Infiltrate the factory from the roof and perform an air assassiation (left). Light the three bales of hay inside (right).

There are another 3-4 guards within the factory whom we can deal with or sneak around. Our goal however is the hay bales. There is one on the upper level walkways and two on the ground floor – one in the far western corner of the room and another propped up against a wall beneath the stairs in full view of the open door.

Once you have interacted with all three, exit the factory and speak with the fellow indicated by the objective marker.

Part 2: Hijack a Fire Engine

After chatting with the foreman, we’ll now have an updated objective – we’re going to have to hijack a fire engine.

Fortunately, three of these will appear on the map, marked with yellow objective markers. Hop on a cart and ride over to one of them. When in range, jump across and hijack it before driving the fire engine all the way back to the factory.

Park outside to again update the memory objectives.

Part 3: Steal the Reports

Exit the vehicle and return to the factory foreman. After a brief pow wow, he’ll lead you inside of the building. Follow him up the nearby stairs and into the office at the top.

Return to the factory in a fire engine (left). Follow the foreman into the factory so that he grabs the reports (right).

Once he has the reports, we need to take them from him and there are a couple of options as to how to do this: you can either kill him immediately and loot them from his body, or alternatively follow him outside and pick pocket them from him as he mills around with the other NPCs on the street.

Either way, once you have the reports, simply move out of the restricted area to complete the memory.
