Part 1: Tail and Defend the Ally

After the intro, we’ll want to hop through the open window nearby and climb to rooftop. Move to the green objective marker and locate Bell below.

Our goal here is to follow Bell as he moves along the road here whilst talking with the Thugs. Each time he stops and says the name of a fruit ( PEAR , APPLE and PLUM are your code words) throw a Voltaic bomb down to hit the Thugs.

Hit the Thugs with voltaic bombs when prompted (left) and be sure to loot some rooftop chests for additional ammo (right).

Note that you’ll need to loot one of the chests on the rooftops here to restock your bombs at some point. It’s a good idea to do this right after throwing the first bomb down to the street. You’ll have to toss bombs at the Thugs a total of three times as your buddy moves up the street.

After throwing the third bomb, the Thugs will become hostile, so you’ll need to jump down and kill them both ASAP before they give our friend’s noggin’ a floggin!

Once the hostiles are down, follow Bell until he jumps in a nearby cart and drive it to the location specified by the objective marker.

Part 2: Escort and Defend the Ally

Hop out of the carriage when you reach your destination and proceed into the tunnel. There are a pair of guards here that we’ll need to eliminate that are marked with red objective markers.

Note: You’ll want to hit these fellows with a Voltaic Bomb to open the fight in order to complete the memory’s optional objective.

Once the enemies are dead, move inside the building. Our friend will now move around the office here and pause at three different locations. As he works away at his sabotage, Thugs will show up and you will have to defend him as he works.

Use voltaic bombs both outside (left) and inside (right) to temporarily stun and damage enemies.

The first set of Thugs will appear in the tunnel outside where we entered from. At this point you can simply hide behind the door and cover assassinate both of them as they enter the premises. If you can’t get them both with an assassination, engage in melee combat as necessary.

After dispatching the enemies Bell will return outside, cross the street and move into another office in the building opposite. He’ll again find a desk to start tinkering at again. This will trigger a group of three enemies to spawn outside. Hide behind the corner outside the entrance to this room and assassinate as many as you can from cover as they approach. Use your melee combat to take down the others whilst keeping them away from your buddy.

Defeating the second group of Thugs will have our friend move to one final location to work on. Again, this will spawn another three enemies and you can use the desk beside our friend to cover assassinate one or two and take down the rest in hand-to—hand combat.

After eliminating the third wave of enemies, the memory will be complete.
