Assassin's Creed III Remastered Walkthrough

11. ACIII: Liberation Missions & Assassin Recruits

Liberation Missions

Liberation Missions and Assassin Recruits are done in Boston and New York. There are three Assassins to recruit in each location, and each section of Boston/New York has different Liberation Missions that need to be done.

The icon for a Liberation Mission is a sort of diamond shape. Not all missions, for both Liberation Missions and the Assassin Mission, will appear on the map. I had to walk around the map to find them. Dobby Carter was the last Assassin I recruit, as she was hidden on the map until I stumbled upon her in a blurred section of New York.

New York

North New York - Dobby Carter

  • Beat up merchants to give food to starving children - 3.
  • Defend a farmer while he's farming - 3. There will be a number of enemies that will attack the farmer. They're easy enough to kill.
  • Protect a family from eviction. Just kill the three enemies, save your money.
  • Liberation Mission - Talk to Dobby Carter. Kill the marked Templar to liberate the district.

I ran into an issue where I couldn't find Dobby Cater. It's in the very northwest area of her district, just to the bottom left of a lake.

  • Beat up a leader to obtain information - 3. The leader will cower when the last of his guards fall, and you'll have a really short cutscene.
  • Liberation Mission - Talk to Jacob Zenger. Kill the marked Templar to liberate the district.

Assassin Recruits

From when you get your first Assassin, you're going to want to start training them up to Level 11. You need to do this for all of the Assassins if you want 100% synchronisation. The more you level up an Assassin, the more useful they are when you call them in for help (and sometimes they can be quite useful for you).

To level up an Assassin, you'll need to send them on contracts (like you had to if you've played AC Brotherhood/Revelations). To do this, hold cn_LB and then tap cn_X. There are several locations that you can send Assassins to, to liberate them. The more stars on a location, the more difficult the missions are to complete.

The easiest way to do is to get three Assassins to level 11 as quickly as possible, and then use those three to "boost" the other three up by sending them to harder locations. The minimum amount of exp you'll get from a mission is 50xp. Mission times range from 2 minutes to 15 minutes. You'll also be awarded money for completing missions.

Your Assassins cannot die, but if they are injured, they will be inactive for an indeterminate amount of time. For me, it was a couple of minutes at most.

The Assassins come with a unique ability, that can be used once they've joined you. To see the available abilities, hold cn_LB and then scroll through the abilities with cn_RS. A selected ability can then be used by tapping cn_LB

When one Assassin has reached level 11, you'll unlock:

AC3 | Magna cum Laude in Assassin's Creed III Remastered
Have a Trainee reach the Assassin Rank.
