The Surgeon Early Death

In the memory The Surgeon, you are first introduced to the target Silas in a scene. While playing through I discovered a way to assassinate Charles Lee. Position him so that he's around a corner. Then whistle for a guard. When the guard gets close enough on the other side of him, the weapon icon will light up to show you can do a corner assassination.

Be sure to use a smoke bomb so you won't get seen otherwise you'll fail the mission. I tried this on Charles earlier in the memory with no luck. Even if I had been successful, the game would have desynched me for an ally dying. I guess the game developers weren't worried about Charles dying in this part of the memory.


The fastest way I could kill Silas. Right after the obligatory human shield tutorial, run straight to the fortress. There will be a brief lag when you get close from the game loading NPCs. climb up at the place shown and shoot Silas. Luckily I didn't have to move the camera since he's right in front of you, although you may target another enemy next to him or if enemies are passing close by (the chances of which I'm not sure of).

Infiltrating Southgate Full Synch and Eagle Strike
[Front-paged. -stabguy]

This is the last memory in sequence 2.

Full Synch
The full synch requirements are:
1. Avoid firing line damage.
2. Find and kill the general.
3. Perform stealth assassinations from a corner spot - 3/3

I start from the checkpoint right after you enter the fortress. At the beginning I head left to the ship. You can get all three corner assassinations from here. First corner assassinate the captain patrolling outside the ship (either wait for him to come around the corner or whistle, but I couldn't help getting him as he was tuning away). There's another captain on the ship. Lure him with a whistle if you don't want to wait for him to come around a corner. A guard stands in front of the prisoners on the ship. Use whistle to get him and free the prisoners.

The two other sets of prisoners are guarded by a patrolling captain each. I'll keep things minimal by not killing anyone I don't have to (and drawing unnecessary attention). Head from the ship to the prisoners right in front of you. Wait for the captain to get right in front of them to free them without getting seen.

Now head for the general. He is located to the very right of the area. His map marker shows up when you get close enough. And since he isn't close to any of the prisoners, many players miss killing him. You need to kill him before freeing all the prisoners or you'll lose the chance. I see at least a few ways of successful stealth kills here. Since he was inspecting a haystack I killed him right there, almost getting seen (close call).

Now for the last prisoners. Use the tall grass to hide from the patrolling captain and free the prisoners at whatever convenient time there is. The scene will now start.

After this checkpoint all you have to worry about is getting hit by the firing line. That's the easy part.
