Assassin’s Creed: Unity Murder Mysteries

One can take more than one tries to solve a crime, but solving it in the first go yields better rewards. During any active Murder Mystery, all gathered evidence can be found under Case Files of the Database Menu.

After a mystery has been solved, one needs to speak to nearby Chief of Police to acquire rewards which usually include a unique weapon and cash rewards.

Solving a murder mystery unlocks Hand of Justice achievement or trophy.
