I'm in this frustatring mission Sequence 10 memory 1 and I'd like to get 100% synch in this mission, the only thing is, everytime I try to do a rope swing kill on the captain, Edward either jumps on something else first, or he doesn't do anything at all. Please help!

Press the X button when the target is highlighted and done! Hope it helps! Cheers!

I had the same problem. :)
It's kinda easy actually: after you kill the third guard on top of the building, you climb that building and find a rope there. You'll jump on it like you do with the ones on your ship, just be sure you time yourself well with the walk of the captain.

Yeah, I know, but everytime I try that he doesn't kill the target. I keep spamming X but nothing happens. I cry.

If you can't lock on to him, try to track the his walk as you are swinging. If he's highlighted, you will get the air assassination from the rope.

Make sure the target doesn't spot you while you're in midair. If he does, he will dodge Edward's attack. It's best to use the rope swings in the mast, so you're too high up to be spotted.

Here is my video guide for the full synch objectives in 10-1. It's in 2 parts. The rope swing is in the second part.
If you miss it be sure to reload at the checkpoint.

Don't know what else to tell you. Explain your process and how it fails, maybe we can help you if we know exactly what's happening.

So something DOES happen.


The plot thickens.

The "stay out of combat" part of this mission was Assassin's Creed Stealth system at its best. :rolleyes: In moments where there was no way, the guards could actually detect me they managed to, and when I literally jumped right in their faces, they didn't. This mission was sooo messed up, no words for this. :) Thank god, I brought 15 sleep & 15 berserk darts with me.

@OP: When you are on the rope, you just have to wait for the moment, the captain is highlighted. No matter how far away you are at this point, you will get the kill. So kill him when he's highlighted, don't wait until you get close to him. Edward somehow manages to fly over the whole deck in some moments, although you hit the Assassinate button right on top of the enemy. Also, it seems to be easier with Hidden Blades then swords equipped. Good luck! :-)

edit: It looks so easy on your walkthrough Bastiaen. How did you do that? For me the guards went crazy and managed to spot me all the time even in the trees not moving... And I'm definitely not a bad (also not an inordinate good) player. Will do that mission again right NOW! :o

Hello,

This thread hasn't been updated in over 6 months, so I hope that somebody sees my post. I played this game on ps3, now I'm replaying it on ps4 and I think there is a glitch with this mission.

I am trying to get 100% sync and I have DEFINITELY killed he captain with the rope swing (as soon as I land on him a cutscene begins) but it doesn't register at the mission rating screen.

Has anybody else had this problem?

I hope somebody sees is so I don't have to make a new thread!

Thank you all

My assasins cant kill the guy , one time I jumped direclty and kill the captain but the game didnt syncronized dont know why. Now is simple impossible to do this mission , I already saw that video part 1 and 2 . Iīve done so many times this mission that I didnt need darts any more. I saw other hundreds of videos try everyway but the camera losses the focus and I believe Itīs glitched . I tried for over 6 hours today , already made that mission more then 200 times...

I'm a little pissed this mission went on so long and that he doesn't want to swing that stupid rope at all. And when I finally got it right, I had to wade through this strangely difficult naval battle (which I swear wasn't at all hard the first time) just to discover the furshlugginer AI didn't give me credit for the kill. Hey, I swung and air assassinated in one move, right? AAAArrrrgh!!!!

Hey, I swung and air assassinated in one move, right? AAAArrrrgh!!!!All right, to answer the question, striking while the captain is walking away from the command deck- what is called, the bridge?- is what was failing my strike. But if I wait for him to walk all the way forward and back and swing just as he is approaching the steps to the bridge, it seems to work.

I don't see the point of rating missions, though. Not unless there is some way to tell them specifically what it is you don't like. Me, I think there needs to be a checkpoint right before you need to swing. Not having one is just a cheap way for the developers to claim longer game play.

Not that it would help in this case. If I fail and do it over I get no credit. Maybe restarting the memory completely will work, but it's having to do that caused me to give the mission one star. I'd give zero stars if that were an option.

I tried forever and a day to get 100% sync on this. But I have a PC and the camera moves away from the Captain as you swing. Finally the thought occurred to me "Can I Sleep Dart him?" THE ANSWER IS YES!!!! I shot him right at the bottom of the stairs. Swing and got it on the first try! I AM SO HAPPY!!!!!
