Part 1: Hallucinogenic Darts Tutorial

Upon completion of the introductory cut-scene you’ll now be in possession of a new gadget – hallucinogenic darts. Similar to the Blowdart in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag or the Berserker Darts in Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, using these Hallucinogenic darts on enemies will cause them to attack their allies.

Note: The hallucinogenic darts not only affect individual enemies when they are hit with them, if you can shoot one into a fire source, it will affect any enemy standing in close range. The optional objective for this mission requires us to use heat sources to affect nine enemies.

Make your way over to the green objective marker to start the memory proper. As you arrive, you’ll find a nice, rectangular restricted area on the map. Our objectives are in here.

Climb up onto the roof of the building in the southeast corner of the restricted area for a nice view of the area below. The first thing we’ll need to do is kill the three guards in the southern portion of the restricted area. The good news is they are standing right next to a fire barrel. Hit this with a hallucinogenic dart and watch the chaos ensue.

Use Eagle vision to identify the targets (left). Use the darts to affect the enemies (right).

Part 2: Locate the Target Chests

After defeating the first group of enemies, our objectives will update. The game now wants us to find and loot three chests located within the restricted area.

The first chest is located in the center of the eastern border of the restricted area. The chest is in a corner by an outside sheltered area. There are a pair of guards in and around this area, and another pair by a fire barrel just north of the covered area. Use the hallucinogenic dart on the fire barrel and drop in and clear up the remaining enemies afterwards. Loot the first chest and return to the rooftops.

The second chest is in the northern part of the restricted zone beneath an open covered area. Again it is guarded by four enemies. In the center of this sheltered structure, you’ll see another fire barrel. Wait for at least two enemies to patrol close enough to it before dropping a hallucinogenic dart on it. As with the previous chest, once the darts have done their thing, move in and mop up any surviving Thugs before looting the chest.

You'll need to examine three chests (left). Using the darts effectively to create distractions (right).

The third chest is on a dock in the southwestern corner of the restricted area. From the roof of the structure that held the second chest, look towards the docks to the west to see a guard by a fire barrel. Wait until there are a pair of guards by this to shoot the barrel with a dart.

Move past this barrel when it is safe to do so and climb to the rope hanging above. From here you should be able to make out the final chest. Hit the fire barrel by this when the patrolling guard gets into range to clear the area quickly.

Note: If you have reached this point and you still don’t have enough Thugs affected by the hallucinogenic darts to complete the objective, there is one more fire barrel with guards nearby beneath the open storage shelter directly east of the final chest.

Once you have cleared the area, drop down and loot the third and final chest. A scene will play.

Part 3: Boat Pursuit

When you regain control, you’ll see a group of enemies on a boat floating away down the river. Sprint along docks, across logs and parked ships as quickly as you can. When you get within range, jump onto the deck of the target ship.

Chase the boat along the docks (left). Kill those aboard before looting the chest (right).

There are three enemies in total on the boat, two of whom may well have already seen you and been shooting at you during your run along the riverbank. The third seems to remain blissfully unaware of your presence. We’ll need to defeat all three of them before looting the chest on board the boat.

After another short scene, we’ll need to head on back to Bell’s workshop to complete the memory.
