OK, so there is an Abstergo piece on top of the house near where you had to kill Laurens Prins. Its on a chimney but when I climb up to grab it, Kenway squats and can't reach it. Ive tried jumping, leap of faith etc and he can't reach it. Is this a bug or is there something I'm missing? Thanks.

A lot of the fragments in Kingston require some creative thinking/maneuvering. The one you're talking about I think requires you to climb the wall or drop down from the roof straight across from the fragment and then do a jump to the ground.

In general, if you can't get it by a Leap of Faith then it requires dropping and jumping n some form.

Well, there doesn't appear to be anything higher than the item the piece is directly over. I'll try to upload a pic of the map. Kenway is where the piece is.

Try hanging from the roof line and then when you are directly under the fragment, back jump to the ground.

The pic above is me directly under the piece. The piece is hovering over a tall chimney, which is at least one and half times taller than Kenway. He automatically crouches when on top of the chimney which makes him too short to reach the piece. I've tried jumping from every side, back to the roof, to the ground, and did a leap of faith. Nothing works. This is my last piece in Kingston. Very frustrating.

Did you try jumping to the chimney from somewhere else? Or vertically jumping in place? Seriously that one is not one of the hard ones. There's got to be something obvious you're missing.

There's nothing I can see to jump to or from. Is there a way to jump straight up when you're forced into a crouch position? The entire top of the chimney forces you into a crouch position. I must be missing something. I've spent hours on this one thing!

Just press R1 + X to jump straight up.

Yep. This will make Edward jump straight up. Don't push in any direction when you do it.

Hopefully that is what I am missing. I didn't know you good do that from a crouch! Thanks.

Thank you. I was having problems with this piece too. I would just like to add that on the 360 this command is RT + A.
