Assassin's Creed Syndicate is next installment in the Assassin's Creed franchise. The game is set in London during during the 19th Century, at the time of the industrial revolution. You play as Jacob and Evie Frye, two assassins who are fighting back the Templar control in London. Unlike the previous games, there is no multiplayer or co-op at all in Syndicate. It is an entirely single player game. There are community events for fight clubs and races, but this is just something to do to earn a little bit extra money.

As for the plat, it is fairly simple. You need to get 100% in in all the main story missions and also collect a total of 144 collectibles. This is substantially less that AC Unity, and you don't need to get all the chests this time round. You can buy in game maps for all the collectible types apart from two of them (The London Secrets and Royal Letters). You need to liberate every borough in London also. This is simply done by completing all the Templar side missions in that particular borough. Once that is done, you unlock the gang war to take out the leader. Completing that mission frees the borough. Overall, it is a fairly easy platinum. There are a few grindy trophies, but nothing that should take more than a few hours.
 


Step 1: Complete the Main Storyline, Complete All The Optional Objectives In Each Of The Memories (100% Synchronisation)

The first thing you want to do is just complete the story and enjoy it for what it is. I do recommend you go for the side objectives in each memory as it will save you having to replay memories later on. The objectives are simple enough and just require you to get kills in a certain way most of the time. It isn't like past Assassin's Creed games where there are lots of specific tasks you need to complete. The main story is fairly short, sequence 1-2 only have one memory in them and the rest have around 4-7 memories. This step will take you about 10hrs if you are going for the challenges as well. This will cut back on the plat time, but it may lower the overall experience of the story if you focus on challenges. As well as completing the story, you want to watch out for any collectibles you come across. There is no trophy for opening chests, so its just the posters, beer bottles and pressed flowers you want to really be focusing on here. Finally, if you see any crowd events, make sure to complete them. These are randomly generated, so you may as well get 20 out of the way instead of searching for them post game.

To summarize, for your first playthrough you'll want to:

  • Complete Sequences 1 through 9.
  • Try to complete all the objectives (100% Sync).
  • Make sure to collect any collectible (apart from Helices and chests, you don't need these). This will save time later on.
  • Complete any crowd event you see, when you are on your way to mission markers. This will save time later on.

Upon completing Step 1, you will earn:
A Spanner in the Works
A Simple Plan
A Modern Babylon
A Quick and Reliable Remedy
The Perils of Business
A Run on the Bank
All Is Fair in Politics
The Joys of Freedom
Shall We Dance?
Friends at My Back
Ordinary Criminal
Mentor
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU
Queensbury Rules
Blade in the Crowd



Step 2: Conquer all the Boroughs, Collect any Remaining Collectibles and Complete all Miscellaneous Trophies

To conquer a borough, you need to complete all the Templar activities found within. These consist of; Templar Hunts, Bounties, Gang Strongholds and Child Liberations. Once you have completed any one of them in a borough, a portion of red will disappear from the map and the Blighter's lose control of that area. You need to complete all of these, for all seven boroughs in London (The WW1 Simulation does not count as a Borough). This will take quite a bit of time, as the map is pretty big and it takes a while to go from one activity to the other. You do not need to get 100% synchronisation in these missions if you don't want to. It is not required for the plat, and all it does is give you a tiny bit more money/experience. You will notice that your reputation with associates is going up as you do these, you will easily max them all out by the end of this step and it'll unlock some cool weapons and armor. You also want to complete the World War 1 simulation. The portal to this area can be found on the far right hand side of the Thames river.

The next thing you want to do, is collect all the collectibles in the game. This isn't as bad as unity, as there is no way near as much. Although, there is still around 125 so there is a fair amount to collect. The good news, most of them you can buy unlock maps for so they will appear on your map. There are only two sets that won't appear, those are the royal letters and the London secrets. I have included videos for both of them within the trophy guide. You will also want to sync all the viewpoints in London (do note you need to 3 that are found within the WWI simulation)

For the miscellaneous trophies, you will need to do a bit of grinding. Most of them require you do kill X enemies in a certain way. and hopefully you got most of these done through the game already. I have included he best methods to get these trophies within the trophy guide. Be sure to also buy any remaining skills you haven't bought, and to buy any gang upgrades you haven't yet bought. If you are low on materials, be sure to keep playing the fight clubs, raid etc as these give you a lot.

To summarize, for this step you'll want to:

  • Conquer all of the boroughs in London
  • Complete the World War 1 simulation
  • Collect all the Beer Bottles (20), Pressed Flowers (30), Illustrations (50), Secrets of London (32) and Royal Correspondence Letters (12)
  • Sync all viewpoints
  • Complete all misc trophies

Upon completing Step 2, you will earn:

Jack The Ripper DLC:

 


Overview:

  • Estimated trophy difficulty: 3/10
  • Offline trophies: 7 (5, 1, 1)
  • Online trophies: 0
  • Approximate amount of time to 100%: 6-8 hours
  • Minimum number of playthroughs: 1 + Free Roam Clean Up
  • Number of missable trophies: None
  • Glitched trophies: None
  • Does difficulty affect trophies?: N/A
  • Do trophies stack?: N/A

Jack The Ripper is the first major content add on for Assassin's Creed Syndicate. It is set 20 years after the events of the main game, placing you back into the boots of Evie Frye who, after receiving an alarming letter from her twin brother, Jack, is heading back to London.

Jack The Ripper has embarked on a brutal reign of terror that shocks London to its core and threatens the very existence of the Brotherhood of Assassins.

With the new content comes a new game mechanic: FEAR. Using a variety of new tools at her disposal from Spikes to Fear Bombs, Evie can now send enemies running off in terror.

 


Step 1 - Complete the story, with 100% Synchronisation.

The DLC is accessed through the main menu and takes place across the familiar map locations of Whitechapel & City of London. For the first step you're going to want to play through the DLC's 10 story memories whilst completing all challenges to attain 100% sync.

You should also try to pick up any collectibles and open any chests you encounter as this will save you time later in Step 3. Certain story memories have collectibles within the level, namely Owers Manor, Deptford Hulks & Abandoned Garrison and Lambeth Asylum.

In this step you should earn:
A well-kept secret


Step 2 - Associate Activities & Misc Trophies

There are 3 Associates in the DLC that require a variety of tasks to be completed. For full synchronisation you'll need to complete all of the optional challenges for the activities. None of these are particularly difficult nor should they offer much in the way of a challenge. You will be familiar with the mechanics from playing the main game and the new additions to these activities are simple to grasp/

In this step you should earn:
Up and coming terror of Whitechapel
Brutal
Can't calm the crowd
Put the fear into them
Are you scared, yet?


Step 3 - Collectibles and Mop Up

For this step you want to find all collectibles in Whitechapel & City of London. Just like in the main game, you can purchase treasure maps from any shop (£5000 each) that will put the location of all the collectibles & chests on your map. You can check the status of your completion at any time from the pause menu via the Progression Log/Progress tracker.

In this step you should earn:
Ripperologist

    • Strange Bedfellows
    • Triple Theft
    • Fun and Games
    • Final Act
  • Recruit a gang of 5 allies.

    Throughout London, you will have your own gang called the Rooks. These are you allies. To recruit them, just go up to the NPCs marked in green on the mini map and press to recruit them. Keep doing this until you have 5 (the maximum that can follow you) and the trophy will unlock. To actually get 5, you need to get the gang upgrade perk called "Leadership III".

  • Sample every beer brand in London.

     

    There are a total of 20 beer bottles to collect in London; they are broken down into boroughs as follows:

    • City of London - 5
    • Lambeth - 2
    • Southwark - 2
    • The Thames - 0
    • The Strand - 4
    • Westminster - 4
    • Whitechapel - 3

    Beer Bottles can be revealed on the map if you buy the unlock map from any merchant. This will put an icon on the map showing you whereabouts the Beer Bottle is. You can simply mark it on the map, and it'll give you the exact location of where to go. None of these are missable, and you can collect them at any point in the story. Make sure you synchronise viewpoints or they won't show up on the map, even with the unlock.

  • Kick fifty enemies off of trains.

    This is another grindy trophy, and there is no way you will unlock this without going for it. There are two ways you can do this. The first way is to keep playing Memory 2, Sequence 1. At the very start of the memory, you will be on a train as Evie. You want to kick all the enemies off the train. You do this, but luring them to either the carriage roofs, of an open part of the cargo carriages, the former is the easiest way. Once you get near the end of the train, simply restart the memory from the beginning. It will take a while, but it is the best way to get it.

    The second method is to play the train heists found in free roam. These activities want you to hijack cargo on a train, which have a lot of Blighter's on them. You will get money and resources from them, but it is much slower than the first method. There is no way to check how many you have done, so just keep going and it'll eventually unlock.

  • Secure three Gang Strongholds and complete their optional constraints.

    Note: If for whatever reason, you complete all of these and don't complete the optional objectives, you can replay them by going to the "Progress Tracker" in the pause menu, and then selecting "Associate Activities".

    There are a total of 12 Gang Strongholds in the game. For this activity, you need to kill all the Blighter's within a stronghold. Simple enough. If you get seen by watchers however, you will have to fight additional enemies so try not to let this happen. For 100% sync on these, you need to not let a watcher call for reinforcements and you also need to sometimes free Rooks or burn plans. This trophy is asking you to get 100% sync on any three of these activities.

  • Win three different Fight Clubs.

    In each Borough, you will find a fight club that you can complete for money and resources. You need to first speak to Robert Topping (Marked with a "T" on the map) as he will give you access to the fight clubs. You need to complete all 5 rounds for it it consider you have won the fight club, so do the lower level fight clubs to make this easier on yourself. Do note, that you have to do 3 fight clubs marked in white on the map, not the ones marked in gold (community events). Doing the community ones doesn't seem to add a win to your total.

  • Finish first in 3 different Street Races.

    Note: It has to be a race with other racers in it, those are the A to B ones and Lap Races.

    Throughout London, you will find street races that you can complete for money and resources. You need to first speak to Robert Topping (Marked with a "T" on the map) as he will give you access to these races. They are standard lap races, and point to point races. Do note that you have to do 3 races, not the community race events. I did a few of those, and it didn't unlock the trophy. Just make sure when selecting the races it doesn't say "Community Event" on it. Once you win 3 races the trophy will unlock.

  • Complete ten Raids of any type with Jacob or Evie.

    Firstly, you need to talk to Ned Wynert (Marked with a "W" on the map) to gain access to the activities later in the game. A "Raid" is anything where you steal something from the Blighters. The most common activity of this type in free roam are the "Cargo Hijacks". All you need to do for these is steal a carriage, and deliver it to a destination. The map is full of them so you should have no trouble completing 10. You can also do the ones on the boats in the Thames River, but these take longer to complete. The trophy will unlock once you complete any 10 of them.

  • Bring three Bounty targets back alive.

    Note: If for whatever reason, you complete all of these and don't complete the optional objectives, you can replay them by going to the "Progress Tracker" in the pause menu, and then selecting "Associate Activities".

    There are a total of 18 different bounty hunts in the game. For these, you need to go to a designated area and hunt for the bounty using eagle vision. They will be glowing gold, whereas regular enemies will be red. You need to either kidnap the bounty and bring him to the police, or kill him and bring his body to the police. For this trophy, you need to kidnap them and take them back to the police. Do this 3 times and the trophy will unlock.
     

  • Complete three Templar Hunts and their challenges.

    Note: If for whatever reason, you complete all of these and don't complete the optional objectives, you can replay them by going to the "Progress Tracker" in the pause menu, and then selecting "Associate Activities".

    There are a total of 18 different Templar Hunts in the game. These are the easiest activity to complete. They are much like the bounty targets, except you just need to kill the target marked in gold and then escape the area. For this trophy, you need to complete he optional objectives for three of them. The objective is usually something like "Air assassinate the target", "kill the target behind cover" etc. Simply get 100% sync for three of these missions and the trophy will unlock.

  • Complete five Child Liberation memories.

    You need to complete five child liberations for this trophy. You need to complete all 11 of them if you want to conquer all boroughs in London so this will come over the course of your platinum run. For the activity, you need to free working child slaves, and kill the foreman of the business. Most of them are in factories and have a few floors to them. To free the children, just go up to the groups of them and then interact with them. The foreman will be glowing gold like the bounty targets, and he is usually on the top floor. Unlike the other trophies for these kind of activities, you don't need to get 100% sync in them for this trophy.

  • Successfully escort ten friendly cargo shipments.

    To get these events to spawn, you need to first purchase the "Ale Heist" upgrade from the gang upgrades menu. This upgrade will appear once you have spoken to Ned Wynert. Every now and then, you will see a carriage that has the option to escort it. All you do is get on the carriage, and drive it to its destination. You will get attacked by Blighter's in the progress, but nothing you can't handle. If you get to the destination and still have Blighter's chasing you, simply throw a smoke bomb on the destination point and it'll complete the escort. There is no way to track how many you have done, so keep doing them until the trophy unlocks.

  • Reach Loyalty level 1 with all Associates.

    There are a total of six associates in the game that you need to reach at least rank 1 with. They are:

    • Henry Green
    • Clara O'Dea
    • Robert Topping
    • Ned Wynert
    • Frederick Abberline
    • Winston Churchill

    Getting them to level 1 is very easy, and it's impossible to miss when going for the platinum. Each associate s tied to a different event. You will level up Henry Green by completing gang strongholds, Templar hunts and gang wars. You will level up Clara O'Dea by completing child liberations. You level up Robert Topping by completing fight clubs and horse races. You level up Fredrick Abberline by completing bounty hunts. Finally, you will level up Winston Churchill by completing activities within the World War 1 simulation. Once all are at least level 1 the trophy will unlock. You can check your levels with each one by opening the map up and then tabbing over with and to "Associates".

  • Reach maximum Loyalty with any Associate.

    This will come in time with the platinum, as completing the activities within boroughs levels up associates. However, in the WWI simulation you have Winston Churchill as an associate. By simply completing all the missions in the simulation (which you have to do for the The War at Home trophy) you will reach his max rank, which is 2. Even though the trophy icon has a 5 on it you can only get Churchill up to rank 2, and it'll still unlock the trophy.

  • Acquire ten Perks.

    Perks can be found by pressing , then selecting "Progression Log" and then "Perks". There are a total of 30 perks available, and you only need to unlock 10 of them for the trophy. To unlock them, you just have to complete the challenge associated for each one. For example, the "Double Kill" perk requires you to do 20 double kill finishers. I had unlocked 14 of them by the time I had the platinum, and that was without trying. Just be sure to use variation and such when playing the game and you will unlock these easy enough.

  • Acquire all of the Gang Upgrades.

    Gang upgrades can be purchased in the train hideout, or by selecting the "Gang Upgrades" option in the pause menu. Gang upgrades will upgrade your income, and Rooks. They cost money and materials to purchase and it will take quite a bit of time to purchase them all. Be sure to buy the City Takeover one ASAP in the "Swindler" section as this reduces the cost of all of the gang upgrades. If you are low on materials to buy them then the best way to get them is by opening the chests found throughout London. These will give you more than the raids, and they are quicker to access. You can also buy maps that will show all of there locations.


    (The image above shows the gang upgrade screen, and what it'll look like once you have them all)

  • Craft a Level 10 Item.

    To craft a level 10 item, you need to first be level 10 and have a schematic for a level 10 item. The way I will be showing you, involves the "Master Assassin Gauntlets" for Evie. You get the schematic for this late in the main story. You need a "Bluestone" to upgrade it however, and this can be found in a chest in Lambeth (see video for exact location). Once you have it, you then want to go to your crafting menu to craft it (do note it requires £10000, 150 leather and 100 chemicals). There are many other level 10 items, so it doesn't have to be this one. But, for the purpose of the guide this is the one to go for as the schematic is easy to get.

  • Learn every Fight Skill as Jacob.

    You need to buy all the skills in the "Combat" section as Jacob for this trophy. The combat section is found on the left of the skills menu. To access the skills menu, go to the pause menu and select "Skills". You will have enough points to max out every skill so don't worry about missing this.

  • Learn every Stealth Skill as Evie.

    You need to buy all the skills in the "Stealth" section as Evie for this trophy. The stealth section is found on the middle of the skills menu. To access the skills menu, go to the pause menu and select "Skills". You will have enough points to max out every skill so don't worry about missing this.

  • Reach Level 10.

    This is the maximum level you can reach in the game, and you will reach level easily 10 when going for the platinum. To get to level 10, you simply have to buy every skill. You unlock skill points by getting XP from missions, side missions etc. As soon as Jacob or Evie reach level 10 then the trophy will unlock.

  • Complete twenty Crowd Events.

    Crowd events are randomly generated events that happen on the streets of London. They can be anything from tackling a thief to killing criminals. You will be notified on the screen when one is nearby, and it will also be marked on your minimap. Every time you see one, make sure you complete it. They only take a few seconds and it will save you having to go out your way looking for them if you don't have the trophy post game. The trophy will unlock after you complete your 20th crowd event.

  • Collect all of the Pressed Flowers.

    There are a total of 30 pressed flowers to collect in London, they are broken down into boroughs as follows:

    • City of London - 5
    • Lambeth - 4
    • Southwark - 4
    • The Thames - 3
    • The Strand - 5
    • Westminster - 6
    • Whitechapel - 3

    Pressed flowers can be revealed on the map if you buy the unlock map from any merchant. This will put an icon on the map showing you whereabouts the pressed flower is. You can simply mark it on the map, and it'll give you the exact location of where to go. None of these are missable, and you can collect them at any point in the story. Make sure you synchronise viewpoints or they won't show up on the map, even with the unlock.

  • Collect all of the Historical Posters.

    There are a total of 50 "Historical Posters" (the game lists them as being called Illustrations) to collect in London, they are broken down into boroughs as follows:

    • City of London - 10
    • Lambeth - 6
    • Southwark - 7
    • The Thames - 4
    • The Strand - 8
    • Westminster - 10
    • Whitechapel - 5

    Historical Posters can be revealed on the map if you buy the unlock map from any merchant. This will put an icon on the map showing you whereabouts the poster is. You can simply mark it on the map, and it'll give you the exact location of where to go. None of these are missable, and you can collect them at any point in the story. Make sure you synchronise viewpoints or they won't show up on the map, even with the unlock.

  • Collect all of the Royal Letters.

    There are a total of 12 Royal Correspondence Letters to collect in the game. All of them are located in the Buckingham area of Westminster, and you can run from letter to letter as they are all close together. One thing I recommend though is you don't try and get these before you have completed the main story. Reason being, most of the locations will be restricted zones and guards will attack you. Once you complete the story, it is no longer restricted. You can get the letters at any point in the game however, and none are missable. You cannot buy an unlock map for these, so you will want to follow the video below for their exact locations.

  • Synchronize every Viewpoint in London.

    There are a total of 22 viewpoints that you need to sync, 19 in London and 3 in the WW1 simulation. Viewpoints are very high points up on the map, and you usually have to climb quite a way to reach them. Once you climb to where the viewpoint is, you will need to press to synchronise. Once you sync a viewpoint, it will reveal all of that area in the district for you. Syncing the viewpoints has always been one of the first things I do in Assassin's Creed games as it gives you a clear minimap which will help you a lot, so I recommenced doing this early on. Once you sync the final viewpoint the trophy will unlock.

  • Reach 100% Sync in the Main Memories

    Note: Challenges stack, so if you completed 1 of the 2, you will only need to complete the other one and not the one you already completed.

    This trophy is for getting 100% sync in the main story missions; you do not need anything other than those. Every memory has additional challenges that you need to complete. For this trophy, you need to complete those additional objectives for every memory. You need to do it from Sequence 1 through to 9. The objective will pop up on the screen when you start the mission and stay on the right hand side throughout. You can also pause the game and have a look at the challenges for that mission through there.

    If you fail any of the objectives on a memory, and you didn't restart the checkpoint / killed yourself, you will need to replay the memory. To do this, go to the "Progress Tracker" on the pause menu, and you can select what sequence, memory etc you want to play. This screen will also show you what the challenges are on a memory before you even play it, and it will also show which missions you have 100% in already and which ones you don't. It will also say what challenges you have done already, and which ones you haven't done. Overall, all of the objectives are fairly easy. They just require kill related things such as air assassinations, or cover kills. It's not like past Assassin's Creed games where you had to do pretty specific things in order to complete the optional objectives.

    If you mess up at all during a mission, you can always let yourself get killed or restart the checkpoint. This will give you another shot at the objective then, instead of you having to replay the entire mission over again. The trophy will unlock once all the challenges have been completed.

  • Destroy twenty vehicles by ramming them.

    Only Blighter and Police carriages count for these, ramming any carriage won't work. For the trophy you need to destroy 20 enemy carriages using your carriage. To do this, ram other carriages using until they get destroyed. It does take quite a bit of ramming the carriage until it'll get destroyed, but there are skills that you can buy that make the ram damage increased but it isn't needed for the trophy.

  • Flip five vehicles by shooting their horses.

    This will work on any horse carriage, even ones that civilians are riding around on. All you have to do is wait until the horse is highlighted and then quick shoot it with . It takes 3 shots to kill a horse. If the carriage has two horses, both of them must be killed for it to count. This will more than likely come through story progression as there are lots of points when you will have opportunities to shoot a horse.

  • Kill three enemies with a single stack of hanging barrels.

    The easiest place to get this is during memory 2 of sequence 4. At the very start, just wait on the rooftop until the two enemies walk towards the door you need to go into. Once they are under it, simply shoot the barrels or throw a knife at them. If done right, the barrels will fall and the trophy will unlock.

  • Hijack twenty police vehicles.

    Police vehicles can be found pretty much all over London. The best places being Westminster, and the Strand. They will have two police officers on them, and have a jail cell for a carriage. For the trophy, you need to hijack twenty of these. The best was I found to do it is just go around causing destruction so the police go after you. A few carriages will then turn up, and you can hijack each on of them. To actually hijack them though, you need to climb on them then throw a knife / shoot one of the policemen. Then, quickly hijack it. You cannot hijack a carriage with two people on as you'll just get thrown off else. Just keep doing this, and the trophy will unlock.


    (The image above is what the police carriages look like in game)

    Here's a great tip from SoPoF

    "Hire a rook and find a police carriage. Or the other way around, doesn't matter. Then drive and wait for your rook to sit next to you. Press to jump onto the roof, so the rook will take over driving. When he did, press to drive again. Taking over from a rook will count as hijacked each time, so you can go on like this with the same carriage over and over again.

    However, the guy can happen to glitch out in you and stop taking over, but the game still thinks he did somehow, the he'll be stuck and you won't be able to drive the carriage again. Just go find a new carriage and hire a new rook, repeat."

  • Reach combo level 40.

    Reaching combo level x40 is very easy, and chances are you will get this just by playing the game. If you don't, the best place to get it is by going to the lower level fight clubs. To access the fight clubs, you want to talk to a man called Robert Topping. He can be found in the City of London, marked with a "T" icon. Once in the fight, just make sure to counter and break enemy defence effectively. You can buy the skills to increase the amount of time the combo lasts between attacks, but it is not needed.

  • Perform fifty Multi-Finishers.

    A multi-finisher, is when you kill 2+ enemies at the same time during combat. This is done by getting 2+ enemies in near death state (when they are on a tiny bit of life, and they are just standing there hunched over). If they are close together, when you attack one it'll attack both of them. You will get a good majority of these done by playing through the storyline, but you probably won't get all 50 done. The best place to go and get these are the low level fight clubs. You are near enough guaranteed to get multi-finishers here if you try for them, at least one per round. Fight clubs are also a good way to farm materials.

  • Assassinate fifty enemies.

    This will come in time, as the main way you will be killing enemies in this game are through assassinations. An assassination is when you kill an enemy with your hidden blade and they are unaware of you. Do this 50 times and the trophy will unlock.

  • Affect at least four enemies simultaneously with the Hallucinogenic Dart.

    You will get given the darts in Sequence 4, Memory 4. The easiest place to get the trophy is to load up Sequence 5, Memory 1. In the second section of the mission, simply climb up onto the roof and then look at the fire barrel that has two enemies near it. There are two more enemies patrolling, and they will eventually walk by it. When they do, shoot a dart at the fire and it'll effect all four of them if done right.

  • Air Assassinate twenty enemies from a zipline.

    You get the zipline early on in the game. This allows you to shoot a zipline from building to building. You can hang of the zipline as well above an enemy, and air assassinate them. This trophy will come naturally if you remember to do it, but if not, then you will have to farm it. Simply load up any main story memory and just go for these kills specifically. If you run out of enemies, simply restart the checkpoint.

  • Shoot fifty enemies before they shoot at you.

    This is another trophy that you will have to grind. Do note, the shot doesn't have to actually kill them for it to count towards the trophy. The best way to get this is to go up onto a roof where a sniper is, and stand a little way from them so they will shoot you and not melee. Wait until they get into a shooting stance and then press the that appears above your head to counter shot. You want to do this with Jacob, as he has a skill called "Gunslinger II". This allows countershots to always be headshots, and a one hit kill if you are using a high damage pistol, or attacking low level enemies.

  • Destroy 5000 destructibles with your carriage

    This trophy, is just a pure grind and will take you a few hours to get. But, it won't be so bad if you drive recklessly throughout the whole game. Leave this trophy be your last one, and just drive around London knocking over lamp posts, bollards and trees. Objects respawn pretty quickly so you can run laps around streets and constantly run over things. A good place to farm it is over by Trafalgar Square, follow the route outlined in the picture below. This will take a while, so do it in stages as it'll get boring, fast.

 

Secret trophies

  • Complete Memory Sequence 9.

    Story related and cannot be missed

    Sequence 9 consists of the following memories

    • Double Trouble
    • Dress to Impress
    • Family Politics
    • A Night to Remember
  • Complete the World War I simulation.

    The World War I simulation will open up later in the game, around sequence 7. The portal to it can be found on the right hand side of the Thames River (see the image below for an exact location). The simulation is in 1916 London, and it has a few missions for you to complete. Simply complete all the missions for Winston Churchill and the trophy will unlock. Do note, there are 3 viewpoints in the simulation that you need to get for the Chimney Sweep trophy.

  • Unlock all of the Secrets of London.

    There are a total of 32 Secrets of London to find in the game. They are little boxes that are hidden throughout London, and once you pick one up, you be given a precursor disk. You put this disk into Reuge's Vault. Find all 32 of these disks and it unlocks the "Aegis Outfit" for Evie. None of them are missable, and you can collect them at any point in the game. To check which ones you are missing, select the "Progress Tracker" in the pause menu and then "Secrets of London". Once you have all 32, return to the vault and insert them all into the mechanisms. Once you pick up the outfit, the trophy will unlock. if you are missing particulars ones, you can click on the timeline below to go to that point in the video.

  • Kill five enemies from within the same haystack.

    The easiest way to get this trophy is to load up Sequence 2, memory 1. Complete the first section on the train and then reach the vantage point when you get the the train station. The game will tell you to "be and assassin" and you'll need to dive into a haystack. Right next to this haystack is an enemy. Simply jump into it, kill him, then restart checkpoint and do it again. Easy. For a video walkthrough, please refer to the video below.

  • Conquer all the boroughs in London

    There are seven boroughs in London that you have to conquer for this trophy. Those being; Whitechapel, City of London, The Thames, Southwark, Lambeth, Westminster and The Strand. To conquer a borough you need to first synchronise the viewpoints within the borough so that it reveals the activities that you need to complete. Each borough has the same activity types, which are as follows:

    • Bounty Hunts (18) - For these, you need to go to a designated area and hunt for the bounty using eagle vision. They will be glowing gold, whereas regular enemies will be red. You need to either kidnap the bounty and bring him to the police, or kill him and bring his body to the police. If you want 100% sync, you need to kidnap them, but you don't need to do this for the platinum.
    • Gang Strongholds (12) - For this activity, you need to kill all the Blighter's within a stronghold. Simple enough. If you get seen by watchers however, you will have to fight additional enemies so try not to let this happen. For 100% sync on these, you need to not let a watcher call for reinforcements and you also need to sometimes free Rooks or burn plans. Again, this is not needed for the platinum, you just get extra money/experience.
    • Child Liberations (11) - You need to free working child slaves, and kill the foreman of the business. Most of them are in factories and have a few floors to them. To free the children, just go up to the groups of them and then interact with them. The foreman will be glowing gold like the bounty targets, and he is usually on the top floor.
    • Templar Hunts (18) - These are the easiest to complete. They are much like the bounty targets, except you just need to kill the target marked in gold and then escape the area. Each of them has their own 100% objective but you do not need to do this for the platinum.
    • Gang War (7) - Finally, you have the gang war. This only becomes available after you have cleared all the other activities in a district. All you do in this is fight Blighter's, and the gang leader (if you didn't kill them in the scene after completing the last activity previously). Once all the Blighter's and gang leader are dead, the event will complete and the borough will be yours!

    Simply do this for every borough in London to capture them all. You do not need to conquer the borough found within the WW1 simulation. Once every borough is clear of red, and says 100%, then the trophy will unlock.

DLC: Jack the Ripper

7 trophies

  • Jack is dead and his identity will be hidden forever.

    Story related, cannot be missed.

    This is the only story related trophy. There are 10 memories in Jack The Ripper; simply play through them all and upon completion, the trophy will unlock after the credits have rolled.
     

  • Perform 30 complete Brutal Takedowns.

    You are introduced to Brutal Takedowns early on in the game. They are hugely important as you progress the story and will help you out with crowd control when in combat. Whilst anonymous, approach the target and you will get the prompt to assassinate by pressing , or you can hold down to initiate a Brutal Takedown. You'll know when you have done it correctly as you will be prompted to mash the button. These takedowns will cause any other mobs in the immediate area, with the exception of brutes, to be scared.

    This trophy should come naturally, but if for some reason you haven't unlocked it during your playthrough then it can be farmed against any hostile mobs in free roam.

  • Kill an enemy as they are calming their panicked allies.

    You will be introduced to the new & improved brutes fairly early on and you'll receive a quick tutorial during The Lady Talks mission on how they can calm their allies down, removing any Fear effects you may have built up. You can net this trophy straight after the tutorial by launching a Fear Bomb ( + ) on the two normal enemies. Whilst the brute begins to calm his allies down, you move in for the kill. If it fails to pop then simply reload the checkpoint.

  • Cause a panicked enemy to kill another enemy.

    Facing large groups of enemies is not uncommon and it's in these scenarios that you stand the best chance of popping this trophy. You are simply looking to scare an enemy enough so that he turns on his associates. The easiest way to do this is by dropping Fear Bombs ( + ) in groups of enemies. Sooner or later one of them will turn on his or her counterpart.

    This can also be earned rather easily during the fight club missions 'Close The Fight Clubs'. Using the same method as above to scare your enemies, it won't be long before they turn on each other, usually via gun shot.
     

  • Scare 200 enemies.

    Fear is the primary new mechanic in Jack The Ripper. You can put enemies into a state of fear by various methods. Fear Bombs, Spikes & Brutal Takedowns are all equally effective. 200 sounds like a lot but it really isn't, I unlocked it without particularly trying for the trophy whilst doing my mop up.

    A good place to kill two birds with one stone is in the 'Close The Fight Clubs' associate missions, These require that you scare 15 enemies as part of their challenges. You need to do both for Ripperologist anyway.
     

  • Unlock 50% of the skills.

    There are 7 new skills in Jack The Ripper and while you only need 4 of them for this trophy, you're going to want to fully upgrade the skills of Evie as they all help with the new Fear mechanic and make earning the other trophies more straight forward.

    You'll unlock this fairly early on in the DLC. Experience is earned via the usual means, i.e.: Main & Associate missions, Kills, Combos, Collectibles etc.

  • Achieve 100% synchronization in Jack the Ripper.

    This is where you'll spend the majority of your time in the DLC. You need your total Jack The Ripper synchronization to be at 100%. This means all missions need to have their challenges complete. All collectibles must be found too (Helix Glitches, Chests & Posters).

    To get 100% sync you will need to complete or collect the following:

    • 10 Story Memories including challenges
    • 21 Associate Activities including challenges
    • 76 Chests
    • 10 Illustrations
    • 30 Helix Glitches


    **NOTE** As stated earlier in the guide there are a few collectibles that have to be collected during story missions (Owers Manor, Deptford Hulks & Abandoned Garrison, Lambeth Asylum), but if you miss them first time around you can replay them in the menu.
