How To Take Down Roberts Guards

Head over to the stores to the right and engage in an optional conversation with Tess, then follow Tess through the market. Make your way through the bus until reach a small open area, then look for the Drafting Notice near the store on the left and collect the Wanted Poster from the board at the back. Next up, speak to the guy standing in the doorway to get some information on Robert’s whereabouts.

(1 of 3) You can find the Drafting Notice on the floor

Follow Tess and eventually you’ll come across two of Roberts hired guards. At this point of the game you won’t have much ammo, so the best way to deal with this situation is to take them out with stealth takedowns. Crouch walk around to the left of the area and when Tess begins shooting, sneak up to one and strangle them, then melee the second whilst he’s distracted.

Loot the bodies for ammo and follow Tess through the alleys until you have to drop through a hole in a fence. Here you’ll want to crouch walk behind the guard walking away and strangle him, then go over to the window of the nearby building.

How To Get Through The Warehouse

Wait for the two guards to finish their conversation, then jump through the window and strangle the one closest to you and Tess will deal with the second. Collect the Warehouse Key from the corpse and look inside the side room to find Health Bar and Can.

Head into the next area and wait for one guard to go upstairs, then wait for the other guard to stand in the doorway for an easy stealth take down. Slowly make your way up the stairs and strangle the second guard, then enter the next room and hide to the left of the door on the right until the guard enters the office.

(1 of 2) Take out the enemy when he looks away

Take out the enemy when he looks away (left), then collect the Shiv Recipe from the nearby room. (right)

Wait until he looks at the wall and strangle him, then take the left path and pickup the Shiv Recipe. Wait for the other guard to walk away and strangle him before heading downstairs and taking down the final guard. Now you’ll want to approach the Garage Door in the corner and open it by holding Triangle DualShock4-ButtonTriangle-Filled to pull down the chain.

How To Get Through The Shipment Area

Once you’ve entered the Shipment Area you’ll notice there’s lots of guards you’ll need to deal with, so you’ll want to take the stealthy approach to avoid wasting the very little ammo you have. In order to do this you’ll want crouch walk through the containers to the left of the area and wait for the guard to walk away from you before strangling him.

(1 of 3) Walk through the containers and take out the guard which is walking the opposite way

Proceed into the Hangar and enter the container on the left, then wait for one of the guards to lean against crates before strangling them. Head back through the container and strangle the guard standing out in the open. Once those two guards have been dealt with head back outside and sneak behind the guard who’s standing near a railing and strangle him, then pickup the Shipping Manifest which can be found on the floor nearby.

(1 of 2) Pick up the Docks Note near the blue trolley

Pick up the Docks Note near the blue trolley (left), then pickup the Shipping Manifest which is on the floor near the railing. (right)

Go back inside to the right side of the Hangar and you’ll find a blue trolley which has the Docks Note and a Wooden Stick sitting on the floor next to it. Finally, go over to the left side of the Hangar and enter the office to proceed to the next area.
