I tried many of the solutions for the original game but found none of them worked. However, this solution on YouTube by TheSuperBEAN82 worked first time for me to get the guy to appear.

- Collect all of your money from the bank.
- Go to the Arsenal in the south and wait around the area with the wooden cranes.
- You have to wait for a bank deposit to trigger so you can be waiting up to 20 minutes. There are three deposits throughout the day - morning, afternoon and night. This may only work with a daytime deposit.
- Once the deposit happens, head out the north gate and a red/white symbol will appear on the mini map.
- Chase the guy and either leg sweep or kill him.

Second video is mine just in case the first one is taken down

SiegfriedXThanks so much for this! Getting this fucker to appear was driving me crazy. It only works with the daytime deposit. Nighttime or evening deposit won't make him appear.

ShakeThatBear14I must have gotten lucky because I got this with 20 minutes of arriving in constanople. Literally before I got the hook blade and was still wondering around looking for cash to upgrade my armor.

Inferno9209I did this in the daytime and as soon as the bank deposit triggered i went to the north gate but he didn't spawn, but then I tried going to the gate on the east and for some reason he spawned that side instead, thought i would just mention it just in case it helps anyone else.

DillionDayI can confirm that the tax man shows up at night. I ran out of the North gate and I didn't see him. I doubled back to the east gate and there he was.

DMpmp13Can confirm this works, first time he fell off the roof and died (you won't get the achievement even after looting him). Second time I did it, it was night, and he didn't spawn out the north gate. I then went back in and out of the east gate and he spawned

Valnor2This isn't unlocking for me even though I've done it twice now. Also The Reluctant Assassin isn't unlocking as well

FQXKilling never worked for me, I had killed a couple of them throughout the game. Followed this solution to the letter and it worked first try. Thanks a lot.

GreedIsGood303Has anyone got this to pop recently using the arsenal spawn? The method is good, have managed to get the guy to show up +5 times but can't get it to pop, have tried killing him and the leg sweep. I see that players are getting this cheev but I wonder if it's using arsenal or via random spawns? Anyone else having issues?

Dibbs93Thanks, didn't work 1st time but it did the second, if your goner put this achievement in the game at least make the guy spawn more often

AnObeseNun xThis solution did work for me but a few things to note:

1. I got this at nighttime, so it's not only daytime.
2. As soon as the pay came in I checked the north gate and he wasn't there, I checked both the other two gates and he wasn't there.
3. I went back out of the main gate to get the money out of the bank to wait and try again, and it was on that trip out he spawned.

So if he doesn't spawn straight away, keep walking round and checking all three gates, he can spawn up to 5 minutes afterwards.

But otherwise, great solution helped me get it!
