AC 3 Guide

Assassinating Pitcairn


AC 3 TomahawkOnce you are at the camp you have a few different ways to go. In order to air assassinate John Pitcairn you will have to get on top of the flag pole right by him.

Basically you want to head left and through the two smaller camps. Remember you can kill three guys without losing the other side objective. If anyone gets close to you int he brush and you can get a clean kill you might as well take it.

Start by going left up onto the rockers. You will see a tree that you can climb. Do so and look to the left. You will see some rocks you can jump to from the tree. Jump over to the rocks.

From there drop down to the floor level rock and run until the end of it. Jump off and use the brush behind the tents to stay hidden. Once you reach the end of the brush you should see the flag and a hay cart. Do NOT run towards the flag. Instead head out of the brush and then left again into the next part of camp. Check your radar to make sure the guard can’t see you.

There is brush in this part of the camp as well so use that to your advantage. Keep going to the end of the camp and you will see a fallen tree you can climb up. Climb up that tree and jump to the next tree. Climb up that tree even further then jump to thee flag pole.

From there you do the air assassination kill Pitcairn and beat the mission. Good job!
