Our guide for Assassin's Creed III will prepare you for dismantling the Red Coats' forces, detailing each sequence and optional objective along the way.
Now that you have control of Ratonhnhaké:ton, Assassin’s Creed III begins in earnest. Make your way towards the next mission marker to proceed, or flex your muscles a bit by hunting animals or killing some of the seemingly randomly-placed soldiers in the wilderness.
5.1: A Boorish Man
- Limit health loss.
After meeting - briefly - with Achilles, camp in his barn to avoid the rain. After a bit of hesitance on his part, you’ll have to fight off a group of bandits on his lawn, after which he’ll deign to speak to you. Nothing too complicated about the combat here; Connor controls in the exact same manner as Haytham did, albeit with different weaponry. Counter attacks until everyone’s dead, then head to Achilles’ house for a conversation.
5.2: A Trip To Boston
- Escape within 1:20.
Head off to Boston and start pickpocketing your way through the rubes and townspeople. You can find a few side missions here if you wish, but you’d be just as well served by proceeding through a few of the main missions until you’re better able to freely explore the city. Follow the man that Achilles points you to, kill him when prompted, then run along the rooftops until you see a hay pile below you to hide in. Look for birds congregating along the railings; they denote locations you can jump from into the hay.
5.3: Boston’s Most Wanted Optional Objectives:
- Do not raise your notoriety to level 3.
Stick to the alleyways as best you can while you head to the mission marker here. You can track the guards on your minimap, and as long as you stay on the ground, you won’t have to worry about the faded dots that indicate rooftop snipers.
Samuel Adams will hand you a beer and ask you to tear down some wanted posters; if you’ve played previous AC titles, this should be old hat by now. He’ll eventually lead you to a tunnel entrance. If you can’t get past the guards nearby, simply climb a wall leading to the sewer; when you hit the ground, Adams will make his way towards you past the Redcoats.
5.4: Lying Low
A simple trip through the sewers makes up the bulk of this mission. Light candles as you go and watch the rats as they move under the walls to find your way, then lockpick the door to move on.
After bribing the printer to alter his propaganda, take a boat back to the Davenport Homestead to find the next mission.
5.5: River Rescue
- Do not touch the water while rescuing Terry.
The goal here is to rescue Terry before he reaches the waterfall, preferably without touching the water. There are animals on the paths beside the river that will slow you down, so you’ll need to follow the path of logs that are jutting out of the river itself. There’s a fairly straight path that you should follow, but there is a small element of the luck of the draw when you swing from a tree branch onto the ground beside the river. You’ll want to hold down your B or Y buttons on the Xbox controller to slide under and hop over the fallen logs here. Occasionally there’ll be a cougar waiting for you before you hit the last log that leads back onto the path of the river; if there is, you should go ahead and restart the mission if you care about full synchronization. A few practice runs and you should be able to reach Terry while his log is still underneath the branches at the end of the path, allowing you to jump for him without getting wet.
Now that you have laborers, it’s time to start building up your homestead. There’s a mission nearby that Achilles will point out to you. Head to it, kill the highwaymen, and rescue Lance to add another piece of the puzzle to your homestead.
central boston chest i have the maps but for some reason it does not show where the last one is help me pleaseeeee...
@get2_kr0nk I found it towards the end of the game in one of the taverns in boston, I wondered the same thing as you, but it is there, it just shows up on mini map I think during sequence 12 :)
OK I got this for Christmas and have just started the game I'm in the theater and I use Eagle Eye to spot my target and nothing happens! Am I supposed to do anything else? Push a button or something?
I'm still having trouble with snitches. I used the smoke bombs - but there is still only one snitch present. There are two during the alley running scene. But only one during the fight scene.
Is this a specific PC Version bug? Is anyone using a console having the same problem?
I looked at several YouTube videos - but they all failed the snitch requirement despite having "Full Synch" in their video title. *rolls eyes*
I've reported the bug to Ubisoft's main site. Hopefully the next patch will see this resolved.
Still - this is a wonderful walk-through. I didn't even think to use smoke bombs at first.
Found out the hard way that you don't have to eliminate all of the guards on the ship w/ the 2 officers. The optional objectives are granted once the 2 ships are blown, not once the flag's up. Kill the 2 officers w/ ledge grabs (unarmed seems quieter but maybe it's just in my head) and the 2 nearest the kegs w/ the hidden blade (slow walk, tap the crap outta X and bail. Double assassinations seem to get you caught too quickly). The ship w/ the grenadier is a different story but I found it easy to kill the 3 lone guards from a ledge then hidden blade the couple at the bow. It's funny when you place the flag on the grenadier's ship. You'll be atop the other during the cutscene.
@saudgamermalik Yes, there are two missions you can do to wrap the story up concerning Conner's tribe and what happens to the British.
For the second ship all you have to do is take out the patroling guard and the you can just run up and set the charge. You just have to be aware of the guard thats alone at the end. I just tried it after failing to do it the other way several times. I just tried it as a joke and it worked.
I saw on one of the recent post about my question and I've done a lot of liberation missions I've got on person about
90% on my side but now I can't find him or any body else's missions what do I do to finish them.
@sman81 Keep running around and getting his/her three goals. Even if you do all the viewpoints, some portions of the map will still be hidden. Which I'll be quite honest, is annoying as hell because stuff like this. I went through the story with only 4 recruits because of this same reason and after going back and running around some more, found and completed the goals to get the other 2.
does anybody know how to get more assassin's on your crew besides the bartender in this version since its not like any of the other assassin's creed games?
@saudgamermalik General Stores under Consumables. or if you found the recipe and have the right items and people, you can make them.
is this the last mission of the game???
i have 2 dvds of this game n i am still on first if the the games ends on first what dvd 2 contains??
@saudgamermalik If your playing the Xbox version the 2nd disc is the multiplayer. The first disc is only the singleplayer.
having trouble witht the first blend mission they dont talk they just stand there when i blend wth me too they dont say anything nothing happens when i blend wth anyone know what im suppose to do
@Mifflinite45 What a great game this is
Looking forward to this the most..
Pre-ordered in fact!
Can't recruit all the assassins.. Boston North and NY North, the lass outside a house and the dark dude by the bar. Yeh, I can't recruit either of them and I think it's a bug, because I've done 3/3/3 (if that makes sense) missions for both of them and they just stand there unresponsive and are not prompting the final recruitment mission. Am I missing something? If anyone has the answer to this I'll......pray for you or something
@SteelPenguin90 As Gianna earlie wrote your sure that you finished all the missions? If not check the missions info either the side missions entry or the animus to see if your really finished. I did'nt know that there was three missions in NY so I at first thought they were bugged since they did'nt show up on the map then I spotted one. Also when the Npcs dont respond to interaction which seem to happen alot. I have to either restart the game or a spot earlier like a replaying a mission before the error. If that dont work I dont know how to help you I do know that when all the NY North missions are done she stop leaning on the house and moves a bit away from there to just stand around. Also not sure who the black dude your talking about is since all the recruits are white. Pretty sure though that all the recruits who were in a bar had a cut scene starting the second I entered the bar when all the missions for it was done
@Tobajas Sorry not a black dude, a dude in black, he's wearing black clothes and a hat on his back. It does say the district is liberated on the map, so I thought it might be the forts, so I dominated them, collected all the chests and paper, saved the starving children, killed the debt collectors, and was it protect farmers? Literally wiped the district clean. I think I might have to restart the sequence :- /
@Tobajas focusing on the NY one, I'm trying to get that done which is why I was talking about that one ^^ lol
@SteelPenguin90 Well, usually there are liberation missions that DON'T appear in the map so you need to find them wandering random. Really, I've passed through this =/
@GianniBR No, that's not what I mean. I have looked around the streets, I have found the liberation missions, I have done the liberation missions, and nothing happens. Really, I'm not an idiot "/
@prime091474 @GianniBR @Tobajas Sorted! I don't know why but after I talked to a man about his family back home in England, I re-entered and then the cutscene triggered and I unlocked him. In NY North I did one of the protect the farmer missions, which I found by "colouring in" the map by exploring, although before I did that mission it did say 3/3 on the animus, and still said 3/3 afterwards but let me continue. After that I decided to finish the game, and I did. Wow.
@GianniBR Thanks anyway :) Sorry, been a bit arsey today dno what's wrong with me. Still not found out how though
@SteelPenguin90 Oh, well, it happened to me once, thought it may have been the same to you. But ok, I've tried to help.
@Hitman9 You have to do liberation missions for the different districts in the two towns then when the missions are finished for a district you get a district liberation mission which when finished grants you a new assassin and a new assassin call skill.
I need everyones support, watch the/my first ever Mass Effect Trilogy unboxing! Thank you!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JDKcvPAvCA&feature=plcp
if anyone is wondering what to do for recruiting assassins, its a lot different then Rev. or Brotherhood. You need to find the Liberation missions. there are usually 3 different tasks for several different people. EX: a doctor trying to fix the smallpox epidemic needs you to rescue 3 people (usually lying down some where) and bring them to him, kill 3 rabid dogs, and burn 3 piles of smallpox infested blankets. after you do all that you go back to him and talk to him, to then protect him from an ambush. after completing that, he then joins your side as your apprentice. so keep looking for those liberation mission symbols and the more you do, the more guys will join you. they made it much more personal for the recruits this time around for some reason, instead of just saving them and have them owe you their life. but there you go. also with almost every guy you add, there is a perk added to your recruit skills. whether it be starting a riot or having them disguise themselves. its definitely worth doing several missions to have more then one assassin recruit with you.
@slipknotmaggot1 are these areas just not marked on the map because I'll find a liberation mission but no objectives are marked?....
@Baroni88 when you look on your map and see the free masons symbol, that is where you need to go to start the mission. the objectives won't show up until you get right up to what you need to do. EX: in one case you need to stop a firing squad from killing innocent people. as you are walking up to them they will all highlight a red dot above them making them a special kill objective for you. kill the 4 or 5 guys and then the top left of the screen will show that you have completed 1/3. not every liberation mission is the same though, like i said, there are 3 missions of the same objective, but several different objections for the recruit. most of them aren't to hard to figure out. as soon as you get to the marker, look for guys with the red dot above their heads and kill them.. sometimes the dot will be yellow, and that just means interrogate. they can't die, so don't worry about killing them. but you can only interrogate them once you have killed all the other redcoats around you. hope that helps a little.
