So far, I have seen a total of 220 flags to collect. 20 in Masahif, 100 King Richard, and 100 in Damascus.

I have found 17/20 in Masahif, 11/100 King Richard, and 2/100 in Damascus - and I am paying attention too.

There are at least 400 more to collect in the game too. Ridiculous. I don't see myself finding all of them any time soon. I doubt I will continue to play just to search out flags, but maybe. Sigh.

Point of this post is, I enjoy having things to collect, but this seems a bit excessive Ubisoft. My two cents.

I think it'd be more worth it to collect them if there was actually a reward for it, but since there isn't it does seem a bit useless, doesn't it?

There are acheivements for finding them all, but there is just too many that are too well hidden. The 3 that I am missing in Masahif must either be too high for me to get without the gloves or hidden too well for me, because Ive scoured the whole city at least 5 times.

Did anyone that bought the Strategy Guide know if all the flag locations are mapped out?

Just curious. I'm going to try to find them on my own, but if I cannot, I may have to pick up the guide next week.

yea in the guide they map em out for every location...plus they give u a huge poster map that tells you where EVERYTHING is...but the flags are really useless unless you want acheivement points...i found all the 1's in mas. n nothin special happened really

Actually. i belive there is a bonus for finding all flags. im pretty sure they unlock additional memories. when you load up the game, check the additional memories section of the dna memory

You may never get the achievements for all the flags in your first run because it appears there might be bug which misses the last and final flag for some areas.

I've looked up and down 100 times over using maps and quite simply - it's not there!

coastermaniac12

Merc_G, there is no bug that will prevent you from the achievements. There are just so many flags that it is overwhelming to find them all in the first run. These flags are not that hard, first run through Kingdom and I got 87 flags. The others are there, just on different ledges or require a skill which your Altair may not have (he should if you have finished at least half the game).

I personally thought the Masayf flags were simple, 2 runs through the city and got them all. Now Jerusalem on the other hand... down right nuts!

Hey everyone, if you haven't already seen them I've created some of my own maps for some areas - you can see them all in a list here:

http://assassinscreedforum.com/Maps/

Also if you see any errors with any of the images can you please let me know? I'll try to update it as fast as I can, and I'm going to continue to add maps to the list, so hope it helps ^^.

for masayaf the two flags you are missing are either

where you did the leap of faith at the start, go up the ladder and theres 1 at the top leap of faith go across the rope and theres one nearby there..so thats 2 ya may have missed

or

after the first asasination the gate straight ahead of you as you enter your masters castle will be open. theres two in the gardens in there.

There is no bug, so you say, that's because you've not experienced it yet. However, I've heard from plenty of people who are all mising one flag around various stages. They even resorted to RESTARTING THEIR GAME. They are not stupid, or gamers who can not navigate around the maps.

In regards to Maysaf, i've been around it about 5 times, from house to house, checking every single square inch, using the spoiler maps for the flag locations and the last flag is NOT THERE. Simple as that.

You're right, Masyaf IS EASY, I know it like the back of my hand, and that's why the missing flag is not there, that's why i know there's a bug.

But yes, there is a bug, and you'll be unlucky to experience it.

I've got around 10 King Richard flags to get, and I've tried everywhere.

I also see that on the way to Acre in the Kingdom there are two pathways that are blocked (the blue memory wall thing). Do these open up later, and are there any flags down there? I'm around three quarters of the way through the game.

Thanks

There has got to be some sort of reward for getting all the flags, view points, saving citizens. Why would the game keep count of these things unless there was something to be achived?? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sleepzzz.gif

They should release a patch (for many reasons) and when they do they should make the flags emit a buzzing noise, so you know when you're near one. The way Crackdown does.

Really? Only 10 King Richard flags? I'm only on my second day of playing (I don't play for very long) and I've got about 30 or so King Richard ones...they seem to be the easiest for me to find for some reason. o_O And I am so not a gamer...at least, I'm not a hardcore gamer. I love this game though...I'm a sucker for beautiful art.

2 in garden, one in ladder tower, one near main jump off the tower. The last one i found was in the middle of town. Somewhere in the center on top of a building, hay is one top of the building. There are some that are well hidden in the town, just keep looking.

I don't believe there are bugs, people just dont look methodically.

I've got 96 King Richard flags from the kingdom - i DO know where one is but for some reason i cant seem to get it.

Its in the ruins controlled by the Saracens near'ish to acre. If you climb the very back and highest part of the ruins you can see two flags atop of pillars. The first one is easy enough to jump to to acquire but for the life of me i cant seem to work out how to get the next one lower down as jumping from the 1st flag pillar to the 2nd doesn't work as I jump too short of the pillar. Anyone know how to either make the jump or how to climb the pillar with the flag on it?

atm iv got

20 Masahif
91 king richard
these 1's i know but the rest i would have to look
but iv almost got all of them only a few more to go tho

that 1 on the big piller is a pain in the butt

Rick Rolling is hereby illegal on this forum.

I've got 55/100 in Damascus, 47/100 in Jerusalem, 20/20 in Masyaf (thank God, finally got them all today), 91/100 in the kingdom, and I forgot how many I had in Acre. I've also got 51/60 of the Templars.

Anyone know of some really tricky flags to get in the kingdom? I'm determined to find all of them pretty soon.

I have this same issue in Masyaf. Although I know I collected 18 of the flags in memory 2 and then got the last 2 when the courtyard opened in memory 3, and yet the game still clams i have found only 19/20 flags. I'm thinking of restarting and not collecting any of the Masyaf flags until memory 3 when all the areas are open.
