Hey guys,

I've searched the forums and can't find anything on this particular challenge.

This is my last challenge out of all the challenges to do. I apparently have killed 15 of these guys out of the required 25. My problem is I have no idea where/when I fought them.

Does anyone know a location where they patrol? Or a memory sequence you encounter them?

Thanks!

Try Cappadocia - there are loads of Byzantines, with Almogavers (sp?) among them.

Ah..I've not gotten there yet - been collecting everything etc. I just thought as I'd somehow killed 15 already they must be somewhere around here! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yeah, there are also some in Constantinople. Watch out for Assassin recruit missions, I think there's always at least one of them http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I had completed this challenge before even finishing the game and attempting to complete the challenges. So I think finishing the game without worrying about it will get you 25, if not then pretty damn close

Yeah try Cappodocia, since when you finish the game, you see mostly Janissaries about 95% of the time :P

I used the Piri Reis bomb missions. They have lots of them.

Thanks all! It looks like I'll just encounter more soon naturally, then all challenges complete! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Sorry to bring this up again, but is it possible for anyone to maybe post a pic of what these guys look like?

I'm currently in Cappadocia. I've collected all treasures and all animus data fragments, and although it still might be that I need to progress with the story to find more of these Almogavers, it just seems weird that people were saying they should be here.

I've killed about a hundred guys here, including well armoured dudes which I've only rarely seen before and hoped they were these guys, but I'm still stuck at 15/25. I don't think there's any other type of guard I've ever remembered seeing! Hm..

They're the ones with the fur on their backs and who carry around axes. The problem is I didn't get any points for killing them in Cappadocia either. I suggest the Piri Reis bomb missions, which is how I got to 25.

You don't get ANYTHING all for the Guild Challenges in Capaddocia. I suppose it is deliberate.

I was trying to get the five-kill combo for the Mercenaries guild and it simply did nothing. Tried a couple for Thieves and Roamani, same thing.

Ah I see. How strange. Yeah I knew it must be these guys that I've been killing. I'll replay bomb missions instead then to try and find the remaining 10.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
