    Sequence three is easiest

    There are four memories.
    1- I did thieves first(can be done in any order) Go to the thieves guild. You then have to go and save a thieve from the guards. once you've got this, get your notoriety down without being spotted. just stay out of sight and dont go on rooftops, take down posters and kill the officials. Then you will need to remodel the thieves guild.
    2- Mercanaries next. Go to the barracks, the guys wife will tell you to go take out a borgia tower, simply kill only the captain to get 100%. Its easy if you get him to flee then just assassinate him. DONT kill guards even after he is dead. Return to the guys wife and they will ask you to remodel the barracks.
    3- Courtsans(spelt wrong i presume) Go to the rosa and you will be told to save someone from slave traders. gather 2500 florins, easy if you are tight like me and don't spend any money.... anyway DO NOT go anywhere near water, there is a bridge to go across. stick to the ground and dont hold A because you might jump into the water. when she has died go back, still not swimming and mother and claudia are waiting for you, skip the cutscene(you don't have to but it sucks) then rebuild the Rosa and you have 3 of 4 done.

    Now for the last memory, if you played through before doing this you will have 100% already but if not simply skip a cutscene for your 30G.

    Overall this achievement is pretty easy to do, this is the easiest sequence.

    DaveKineticIf i replay a sequence at the end to do this, do I keep all of my brotherhood to kill the borgia captain or is it as if you did it the first time?

    Octobot SuperFor #1, the main issue is that you must not be spotted when you're leading the thief around. You need to use the moving crowds to move around undetected. If there aren't any moving crowds near you, wait in a stationary one until a moving one passes.

    There are actually NO guards around when you're decreasing your notoriety, so this part in your guide is actually just wrong.

    The tips for 100% synchronization on the other two memories are fine.

    Sequence 2 is the best option here. So far. Just got into Sequence 3 but a bit of work in 2 and you're good to go.

    For 100% Synchronization you need to complete a certain task within each memory of the Sequence.

    *SPOILERS* For better descriptive purposes.

    Sequence 2 consists of 8 memories.

    Memory 1 – Do not drop below 1 health square.
    -Essentially just walk to the left of your starting point, down the stairs and straight for the doctor. Heal up and don't do anything overtly stupid as you climb the church and its yours. You will probably get this without having to read this.

    Memory 2 – Kill your target with the hidden blade.
    - Make your way up to Carnefice's house and climb up to the roof. Make sure your hidden blade is equipped then hit LT to lock on Carnefice. Walk a bit out onto the beams and assassination option should pop up with X and there you go.

    Memory 3 – Throw the Borgia Captain into the scaffold to kill him.
    - It does not matter how you get to the Captain but you will notice there is some scaffolding just to the left of the little alcove he is in, the wooden beams all tied together. I killed all the other guards first and then manoeuvred my way closer to the scaffold. You will notice that B has the option of grabbing. Grab the Captain then I think B switches to throw. Tilt left stick in the direction of the scaffold and hit B.

    Memory 4 – Don't lose any health.
    - Honestly, just be a perfect citizen and this is yours. Again you will probably not need help with this one.

    Memory 5 – Catch the Borgia courier in under 1 minute.
    - After the fight the Courier is right in front of you. Sprint/freerun after him. He took a left right away for me. Once you're close enough let go of A and B should say tackle and there you go.

    Memory 6 – Don't lose any health.
    - This one was a pain for me. You have to fight 13 Romulus followers and not get hit. Pretty much as quick as you can pull out your sword and hit RT. Counter the first attack. If you know how to chain the one hit kills only do it for two guys at a time, otherwise another will hit you while you are attacking his buddies. So counter first attack, let go of RT, left stick in desired direction and X then once more for one hit kill then hold RT again. Rinse and repeat. This took me many tries as Ezio didn't want to pull out his sword fast enough. But patience and practice will get you through. And if you waited until after the memory, you can pause and Restart Memory if you get hit. Cuts down on waiting time. Any other tips for this would be greatly appreciated.

    Memory 7 – Complete the memory within 8 minutes.
    - Best advice is do it once and just make sure you know the route you have to take. A couple tips. When you have to pull the levers at the start. Get up to the platform for the first time go right, jump the gap and pull that one then go back the way you came across that gap and another then pull that one and work your way around the room counterclockwise. I accidentally jumped into the pool of fire and died, and in the last room when the top of the column falls off so you can get back up, a few jumps after that I missed the jump completely and just got back up and opened the treasure and scrambled up the ladder and still got it. So you can screw up one sort of major/minor jump. But as I said, the first time you do it, don't rush and just memorize the path you have to talk.

    Memory 8 – You get this 100% pretty much no matter what. I have no idea how you cannot.

    Hope that helps, and have fun.


    LordMcclure points out that if you are having trouble with the Wolf Clan in Memory 6, switch to hidden blade as it is much quicker compared to the sword.

    HadesDC212 suggests using the stiletto for the Wolf Clan

    Tom1013 says for memory 7 that skipping cutscenes may help with completing it in under 8 minutes. I haven't verified this but it is worth a shot.

    Also you can always go back and play the memory over again as many times as needed. Though you are bound to get this achievement if you are going for the DLC achivement

    rG Mechynickcan you not just replay the ones you miss?

    Rayne EvansYes, you can replay whatever memory you need to get perfect synchronization.
    Posted by Rayne Evans on 30 Dec 10 at 22:30
    TOM1013If your having trouble doing memory 7 in under 8 minutes it may help to skip the cutscenes. You just need to pause the game when the cutscene starts and you'll see the skip option in the menus.

    i don't want to give any spoilers but i was able to run through DNA Sequence 9 easily to get this achievement its a fairly easy sequence to complete because there are no detection rules.

    Agree with Dean0XD that Sequence 9 is the easiest in the game to get another 100% Synchronization as your not having to do numerous missions like the others and rather than going back and having to do a whole sequence again.

    In sequence 9 all you've got to do is 2 missions and the hardest thing you've got to do is don't go below 5 health bars in the mission you have to do as its a very short sequence.

    This is really easy as just make sure you've lots of health packs and use your defend counter attacks in battle to avoid getting caught out.

    You will face a few quick button bashes of X in certain sequences which i wont reveal to avoid spoilers.

    Once you've defeated the so called boss the achievement will pop with the complete sequence 9 achievement.

    This way is alot quicker and easier than having to do sequence 2 or 3 like everyone is telling you to.
