Holy Wisdom (20g)
Complete the Hagia Sofia Challenge level
You can complete this level after you’ve collected all the memoirs and it’ll be highlighted on the map.
Collect all Animus Fragments
You only need to collect 50 fragments before the rest are highlighted on your map. Here is a basic map showing you the general locations of the fragments:
Worth a Thousand Words (20g)
Collect all of the Ishak Pasha’s memoir pages
There are only 10 pages and they can be highlighted on the map after you collect 25 Data Fragments and buy the treasure map. Otherwise, here are the locations:
Complete all Bomb Missions
These are the tutorials given to you by Piri Reis. Just complete all his missions and you’re done.
Armchair General (20g)
Control all cities (except Rhodes) simultaneously in the Mediterranean Defence Game
The way you reclaim the city is basically just doing the ‘Reclaim the City’ mission. It’s much easier if you have a bunch of high level assassins, just send a few assassin’s to each city and make sure they have a high success rate. It’s takes around 10 minutes to complete a mission so just keep sending the assassins to all the cities (except Rhodes) and you’re done.
Iron Curtain (20g)
Perform a perfect den defence without using the cannon
I personally hate this mini game so much that I go out of my way to make sure I forever stay incognito so I never have to deal with this. Thankfully, you can do this achievement when you play den defence for the first time. So literally just play the mission without pressing LB. Here’s a link to a video guide to give you an idea on how to do this:
Spider Assassin (20g)
Climb Hagia Sofia, from the ground to the pinnacle, in under 25 seconds
This is a very easy achievement but even so, waiting for the hookblade is probably a good idea since it just makes it even easier.
A Friend Indeed (20g)
Complete all Faction Creed Challenges from a single faction
The Assassin’s Guild challenges are easiest to complete and you’ll be doing most of the actions during the game anyway but you can also focus on the Mercenaries, Thieves and Romanies (yes, they just replaced prostitutes with gypsies)
Tax Evasion (10g)
Get you money back from a Templar tax collector
They appear at random but they’ll have a red icon above their heads and will run away from you (similar to Borgia Couriers) so just chase and kill them. The achievement should unlock.
The Mentor (20g)
Have seven mentors reach the rank of Master Assassin
You’ll need to recruit seven assassins and continuously level them. After they reach level 10, you can send them to guard a den, then you must complete a few tasks for them in order to level them to Master Assassin.
Lightning Strikes (20g)
Kill 5 guards in 5 seconds using only your hidden blade
It’s best to try this with a cherry or poison bomb, just throw it a five or more guards then you’ll need to kill them in twos before you kill the last one.
Assassinate 50 guards with the hidden blade
Just go on a killing spree with the hidden blade and this’ll unlock.
Parachute onto a zipline
Climb the pole at the higher end of the zipline, jump and use the parachute then release the parachute and hold B. With enough luck, you’ll land on the zipline and unlock the achievement.
Collect all available books
You’ll need to buy every book shop to have every available book for sale. You’ll also not be able to complete this achievement until you go to a previously undiscovered area. You’ll need a lot of money to buy these books so stock up as much as you can, especially when you go to the new area since you’ll need over 350,000 to afford them. There are also multiple book quests to complete for this achievement.
Fast Fingers (20g)
Loot 50 guards with thief looting
You can unlock thief looting by completing these challenges:
- Perform 40 leap of faiths
- Climb 1km in distance
- Steal 250 currency with Counter Steal
After this, you’ll need to hire thieves then kill guards so they can loot the bodies for you and collect the money.
Mosh Pit (20g)
Have 10 guards poisoned at the same time
You’ll need to make a poison bomb with a large area of effect and good impact. You’ll also need a cherry bomb to lure a large group of guards together at the same time. When they’re all together, throw the poison bomb and the achievement should unlock.
Mouse Trap (20g)
Kill 5 guards with a scaffold after they had been stunned by caltrops
You’ll need to have the caltrop bomb for this: look for a scaffold (the wooden structures) and lure a group of guards to it. Throw a caltrop bomb to stun them and then pull the scaffold onto them.
Craft Maniac (20g)
Craft 30 bombs
Just repeatedly craft and dismantle the same bomb over and over again to get this if you don’t usually use bombs. If you do, you’ll probably get this over the course of the game.
My Protege (20g)
Have one trainee reach the rank of Master Assassin
Just send your assassin on loads of missions until it reaches the assassin rank. Then assign them a den and complete their missions to secure the den and level them to Master Assassin.
Almost Flying (20g)
Parachute directly from the top of the Galata tower to the golden horn
The tower is the large building next to the Assassin’s HQ. Climb to the very top, then jump with the parachute heading south towards the water. When you drop in, the achievement should unlock
Silent but Deadly (20g)
Kill three guards simultaneously with only throwing knives
You’ll want the guards with little to no armour on. You’ll need to kill them with one hit from the throwing knives so just keep trying and you’ll get this one eventually.
I can see you (20g)
Kill 5 guards while in the cover of the smoke screen bomb
You may end up getting this achievement while doing the Lightning Strike achievement. If not, throw down a smoke screen bomb in a large group of enemies and assassinate them however you like
Monster’s Dance (20g)
Have a guard incapacitate three civilians while he’s poisoned
Using the gold bomb makes this easier but you don’t need it. Find a guard and poisoned him with a dart then quickly throw money or the gold bomb at him to make people rush at him. He’ll start hallucinating and swinging his sword madly. If you don’t get the achievement again, just try again and you’ll eventually get it.
Find and beat up Duccio
You’ll meet him during Sequence 4 but he’ll run away from you. He’ll be waiting in the Constantine district. Go to the northern blacksmith shop and he’ll be behind that; he’ll be the one with the red icon above his head when you spot him. However, he won’t appear if you haven’t completed Memory 3.
Mastering the Art (30g)
Earn the INCOGNITO bonus
Kill your target when all 4 blue bars around your target are filled to unlock the achievement. This should be your first achievement and you’ll probably get this during the tutorial.
Tools of the Templar (10g)
Purchase your first ABILITY in the Abstergo Store
You’ll need to be level 5. Go to the Data Hub on the Multiplayer Menu and select ‘Abilities Sets’. Select the first set and buy it for 5 points then buy one of two available abilities for 35 points for the achievement to unlock.
Complete a Challenge
Go to the Data Hub, then ‘Templar Profile’ and finally ‘Challenges’ to view an entire list of available challenges. Of the three stars shown on the screen, you only need to fill one of the stars for the achievement to unlock
True Templar (20g)
Reach level 20
This will take a while to achieve but with time and patience, this achievement will eventually unlock.
Looking Good (10g)
Customise a PERSONA
You need to be level 10 to unlock a customisation item, then search through the available characters to find a customisable one and, well, customise them to unlock the achievement.
There is No I in Team (20g)
Win a session of a Team Mode
The team modes are:
- Artefact Assault
- Chest Capture
Just win any matches on these modes to unlock the achievements.
Make the Headlines (30g)
Obtain 12 different Accolades
Accolades are similar to mini accomplishments to earn throughout your multiplayer career. Here’s a list of these accolades:
The Professional: Had the best kills/deaths ratio
You may get this naturally going for level 20.
The Savage: Had the most contested kills
To get a contested kill, hit on someone trying to kill you. They will get lower points.
The Sacrificial Lamb: The first to die
Easy enough, you will get this naturally!
The Survivor: Died the least
Hide, run, do whatever it takes to have least amount of deaths. Easiest if you join a game that’s almost over.
The Target: Died the most
You should get this naturally, being bad at the game or having a bad “day” in multiplayer. If you are a extremely good at this game then you will have to try for it.
The Slayer: Had the most kills
You should get this naturally as you get used to the game. It might be difficult for some people.
The Untouchable: Was never killed
This is easily obtained when joining a match that is about to end. Otherwise, team games are easy to avoid people in. Especially objective based ones because people have other things on their minds. You can go hide in a haystack and wait the timer out.
The Victim: Spent the most time affected by ABILITIES
There are many people that love to use abilities in this game. If you join into games where people use them often, you should get this naturally.
The Improviser: Used the greatest variety of ABILITIES
There are other games where people don’t use abilities much at all. Use the abilities with and . You can change your set of abilities when you die by pressing Pick the other set, and do the same. Most people only use one set of abilities so you should not have to wait long to get this.
The Immortal: Stayed alive the longest
This won’t happen every game, but if you can avoid confrontation then you might be able to snag this. It’s best in team games or games where there are only minimum amounts of players. Do this on team based games that have to do with objectives (like VIP).
The Wanderer: Spent the most time walking
If you leave your controller doing nothing, your character will walk on it’s own. You can also walk around yourself, just never run.
The Vicious: Had the most GROUND FINISHES
This is really easy if someone else gets your target, you can go press on them while on the ground. This will randomly happen and you get a free 50 points out of it (if someone took your kill).
The Gargoyle: Spent the most time on rooftops
Very easy, just climb on the roofs and wait.
The Achiever: Finished first, second, or third
The best modes for this are corruption and artifact. You gain points just by walking around most of the time. If you get in a game with the lowest amount of people, it will be easier.
The Drunkard: Was STUNNED most often
This is one of those bad luck based deals. But you can also do it on purpose. Be very obvious when confronting a target and don’t kill them. They will slap you or punch you and you will be stunned.
The Savior: REVIVED the most ALLIES
When playing team based modes, if your allies get stunned you can press to revive them. Most people don’t do it, so you should only need a few.
The Dependable: Winning team
Be on the winning team. That’s a 50/50 chance.
The Elusive: Was acquired the least
This is in the Assassinate Mode. It’s actually a very difficult mode because you have no target you must acquire them. To do that, you must press and hold it down on random people until you get one that is a real person and not an AI. Just avoid people and look casual. Try to get yourself in a corner where the AI has a group talking.
The Wise: Killed the least Civilians
To be safe, you can avoid killing anyone and hopefully everyone else has killed a civilian.
The Saint: Survived longest as UNCORRUPTED
This is in the Corruption Mode. It’s best to lay a trap in front of a haystack with your default ability that puts a smoke grenade on the ground. If they go to the haystack, it will explode and you can stun them and run off.
This list of Accolades have been found and written on Xbox360Achievements and I, in no way, claim to have written this list

Finish a session of each game mode
There are five modes you must play and finish without quitting:
- Steal the Artefact
- Artefact Assault
- Chest Capture
Score at least 2500 points in one session
This is very easy to obtain at any level, especially if you’re familiar with Multiplayer, but your must get at least 2505 points to unlock the achievement, not just 2500.

Stopped Dead (20g)
Obtain 3 Hidden Gun kills during a session of Steal the Artefact as The Corsair
