Sequence 09

Memory 01 - Starving Times

Optional Objectives:

  • Don't touch the water
  • Don't trigger any alarms

Meet up with Elise to learn more about the grain shortages and where to begin in tracking down Marie Levesque, the woman responsible who also happens to be working for Germain. This mission is short, but it is primarily a platforming mission with precision needed to complete the optional objectives.

After the scene head for the waymarker at the dock to begin this mission. To track the boat without falling in the water or losing sight of it turn right at the start and jump off the ramp to the rope and follow it to its end before you jump down. Rush over to the boat house by the water and climb up, following the rope again, and then jump up and run through the buildings and out the other side.

Run along the rope to follow the boat (left). After climbing up the boat house turn right and run through the buildings (right).

Jump off the perch to the lower docks and cross them to the pylons sticking out of the water to cross them. Run up the ramp leaning against the house and hope off the other side and to the beach. As you run along the beach avoiding the many obstacles a crate will fall from above, so be careful when running around its left side to avoid stepping in the water.

Run straight and take the lift up and jump to the beam to follow the wall across some wooden platforms and beams. You should keep going until you reach the bridge and up and climb over for a scene.

Run across the pylons and then avoid the falling container.

You’ll return at the middle of the bridge with the water below, but instead of jumping in turn right and head back toward the buildings. You need to head toward the far side of the restricted zone, but many of the thugs line the street and can cause problems.

The best strategy is to stick as close to the buildings as possible and when you come reach the multiple guards that block the road you can head into the yard of the nearby building and climb up it. Once on the roof you should see a perch with some birds to indicate a leap of faith into the haycart on the docks.

Kill the guard leaning against the haycart and then wait for the Brute to walk over and kill him too. You can now run down the dock, hop into the water, and swim over to the back of the platform with the target.

Before climbing out of the water you’ll want to use Eagle Vision to check the location of the patrol on the left side of the dock. This guard needs to be taken care of before you approach the target, so wait for him to get within view and then shoot a Phantom Blade in his face. Once dealt with you’ll wait for the target to investigate the corpse and kill him, or sneak up behind him on the platform.

Leap of faith into the haycart to reach the docks (left). After dealing with the guards, assassinate the key holder or steal the key off his belt (right).

Loot the orders from the corpse and then make your way back to the haycart and climb the wall enough to avoid the guards down the dock and exit the zone area.
