On it,.... Now what is a Gazillion?

I think it's 3 million. I'm already 101/10, but apparently only me and some other guy with 1 kill are on the XO leaderboards. I'm at 4.02% though, and we have until the 22nd it says. So a week. It's super possible. It looks like it's kills in general, not assassinations. But then again I've been keeping mostly assassinations. I'll test this and add it to this post. The problem is it's laggy so I can't tell right away if a kill did or didn't count.

There's more of a requirement on ps3? Are there more people playing on ps3 or something? odd.

Are there new assassination contracts or just the requirement to run around killing guards?

Killing guards. I still am not 100% sure if it's kills in general or assassinations. I have around 350/10 from Havana. You just get a bunch of smoke bombs and hit a group of 4-6 people with it and assassinate them all without being in combat. I still fight if I go into actual combat, but I just shoot them and run away to get back to assassinating.

Probably not. It's for the explorer outfit too, which I consider the best prize of all the challenge prizes.

Dumb question, do I need to join something or play multiplayer to join in on this or can I just assassinate in single player mode? How will I know I'm getting credit for assassinations?

I was focusing on searching for chests this morning and racked up about 100 of them. They finally gave us a good amount of time so this one should actually get completed. I was a bit sour after looting a few hundred warehouses and getting nothing.

It's laggy. Takes a while to update.

Im guessing that "assassinate" means that the when the guards do not have the red icon above their heads and don't see you coming? Or can i get into a fight and kill people like normal? If not the fight, I'm wondering if you get into a fight, can i just throw a smoke bomb down and have it count toward an assassination?

They don't see you coming. Not sure about smoke bomb, try it and see if your count goes up.

It's very easy. You can walk right up to a group of them and assassinate two and run away.

The smoke bomb idea does not work. :(

Tobias971
01-16-2014, 10:13 PM
Yeah, smoke bomb does not work. You have to assassinate them, which means they don't know it is coming. However, it does not work for me any more. I was able to assassinate 77 yesterday, and that was all. I have tried several times playing to day and I am not given the community challenge that I had yesterday and the enemies I assassinate are not added to my total. Do you only get one day to play in the community challenge?

01-16-2014, 10:33 PM
just go to the group of 4 or 6 guards, stand near them and dont engage them. throw a smoke first and then do doubles assassinations with hidden blades. its lot easy i have been doing it a lot.

on PC 80% done now.

Smoke bombs are actually the best way to do this fast. You find a group of 4-6, smoke bomb them, and "assassinate" them all. No combat animations.

Edit: lol just saw the previous post

So your saying that if you approach a group of 4+, you just go up to them and smoke bomb them before they are alerted and the assassinate option works?

Also, don't forget about the sleep dart method. Those that you sleep dart allow you to knock out first and then assassinate (double kicking).


Edit: Never mind, i guess it doesn't count

Still 85% to go on XO. And I think the first community challenge that was the same as this one got finished on current-gen before the next-gen stuff was released. That's how some people got the explorer outfit. But others didn't get it, so they had to fix the rewards.

yes, PS3 is done....and i did my part. i equipped the short blade and nothing else but coins or smoke bombs just in case. it did say "assassinate", not kill, so i took it literally. there was some confusion(for me), the last one with ships...i went out and pretty much shot everything up for an hour, only to find i had 2 of 10. i posted on this forum about it, and was replied that i must not only board the ships, but repair the Jackdaw with them. so like i said, i took assassinate literally.

Kingston was a happy hunting ground for 116...hold your applause please lol

I found Havana to be the best. Last time I looked it was at 95% but I got bored so I got off. I think it was around 1100 or something.

Well, if I do get back on ACIV, I'll do my part in killing some guards. And it's a good thing Ubi made this challenge slightly longer, although, some other challenges must be longer and the requirement of expectations must be lowered.

Then please make the community challenges like this that you will still get the reward,after you have done the individual goal no matter now if the community have failed or not.

Cause nobody want to put time and effort into something,which didnīt got paid off in the end.

And please make finally the El Impoluto figurehead availabe as reward,or if not as reward then at least sell it in the PSN store.

Cause Iīm pretty much "tired" of waiting until you will be able to get it,since the game has been launched at October and you still canīt get it.
