Part 1: Vantage Point and Opportunities

This is the second core ‘assassination’ memory contained within the main campaign and as such it is a little different from your standard level. The first thing that we need to do in the memory is to climb up to the vantage point located inside the Waterloo train station on the rafters near the roof at the very top of the interior. Here we’ll get a pair of hints. Use the Eagle Vision ability after the pop up disappears to find and tag both opportunity icons. The options include:

  • Train Conductor – Stealth Opportunity.
  • Security Chief – Unique Kill Opportunity.
    As with the first assassination, it is not necessary to complete these tasks, you can do one, you can do both or you can do your own thing and do neither. Below is a short guide as to what each can do for you and how to accomplish their tasks. To continue with the walkthrough, jump down to the heading for Part 2: Assassination Strategy .

Enter the roof of the train station (left) and make your way to the viewpoint (right) to identify opportunities.

Train Conductor – Stealth Opportunity

The train Conductor is located directly below the vantage point at the start of the memory. Completing the small task for the train conductor will grant the large crowd here access to the restricted area. This will allow us to move more freely in and around the assassination area.

Security Chief – Unique Kill Opportunity

The security chief is found in the center of the restricted area. He holds a blueprint on his person that includes a weakness in the train car that our assassination target is hanging out in. We can approach and interact with this for an easy assassination of the target.

Part 2: Assassination Strategy

This strategy is the easiest and quickest to pull off the assassination whilst also completing all of the optional objectives for 100% synchronization on the mission.

After the hint screen vanishes, drop down to the platform below and speak with the Train Conductor. He’ll ask you to find the train schedules which have gone missing. If you have a quick look at your map you’ll notice a smaller restricted area in the northwest corner of the station. The schedule is located here, so head up the nearby stairs to reach it.

At the top of the stairs hang behind the doorway here and wait for a patroller to come to you. Cover assassinate him and then deal with the pair of Thugs in the room ahead standing over a prisoner – this is the station chief.

Follow the hallway to the end and take cover behind the doorway leading to the next office. Whistle the enemy inside to you for another corner assassination. Murder the fellow guarding the other entrance to the office and then loot the Train Schedule from the desk in the corner. Return this to the Train Conductor. He’ll allow the crowd into the restricted part of the station.

Find the stairs near the conductor and climb up (left). In the room at the end are several guards (right) and the Train Schedule.

Return up the stairs to the station chief and release him. He’ll run off and you’ll want to follow him to complete the second optional objective.

When the station chief heads down the stairs and outside, he’ll stop and go back into the station. At the base of the stairs, near where he stops, you’ll see an opening across the narrow street with a pair of Thugs guarding it. Kill them and inside you’ll find an open hatch leading into the sewers.

Follow the linear pathway through the sewers and climb the ladder at the very end. This will complete the second optional objective.

Follow the Station Chief and he’ll lead you to the entrance to the secret tunnel (left). At the far end of the tunnle you’ll emerge beneath the Security Chief (right).

You’ll exit into the restricted area on a platform directly below the Security Chief who’ll be on a footbridge above. Quickly whip out your Eagle Vision and mark and identify him to unlock the opportunity. Climb up on the train here to kill the sniper and move a little north along the platform to find another thug standing beneath the stairs up to the footbridge.

The Security Chief will come down the stairs at this time and briefly stop at the bottom. You can either sneak up and pickpocket the blueprints from him at this point or wait until he climbs back up the stairs to the footbridge and pick his pocket as he climbs up and walks around through the crowds at the top.

Once you have the blueprint, a new marker will appear on the map. Use the Rope Launcher to climb to the girders at the top of the area and proceed over to the marker. Once you are directly above the marker, use a throwing knife to silence a sniper on the roof of the adjacent train.

Clear the train tops near the target (left) and approach the objective marker from obtaining the plans from the Security Chief (right) to trigger an assassination.

Drop down and stand on the glowing objective marker to trigger a scene. During the scene, hit the ‘assassinate’ button (X/Square) when prompted.

Once the target is dead we’ll need to escape the area. Fortunately, it’s an easy escape this time. Simply sneak to the very front of the train we are on and pull the lever on the locomotive for a scene to end the memory.
