Syndicate Templar Hunt

Templar Hunts in Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate are special assassination tasks that require you to eliminate targets using specific methods to complete the challenges successfully. They reward players with a good amount of XP and cash, but their best reward is teaching the player tons of different assassination tactics.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Templar Hunts

This guide will help you complete all the Templar Hunts in the game with a Full Synch, which requires very specific challenges to be met.

Harold Drake

Location: Whitechapel

Challenges: Kill Target with a crate of dynamite.

Recommended Level: 2

Reward (£): 132 + 75 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 200 + 100 (Full Synch Bonus)

Sneak into the market and work your way towards Harold. When you come near his location, you’ll notice him in an area that has pallets of food around. However, some of the boxes near the outside of this small area have dynamites in them instead of food.

Ignite these boxes and sprint as far as possible from the market. Harold should get killed in the explosion(s) and you’ll likely be out of the area by the time it happens.

Martin Church

Location: Lambeth

Challenges: Kill Martin with the Hidden Blade

Recommended Level: 4

Reward (£): 400 + 75 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 300 + 100 (Full Synch Bonus)

To kill Martin Church with a Hidden Blade, climb the church building and head all the way to the top. Assassinate the scout up on the roof and take a dive into the hay cart. Now, it’s just a matter of patiently waiting for the target to come close.

Once he does, whistle to bring him close enough to perform a grab and blade kill. Once you’ve taken care of him, climb back up the church and go over it to the other side to escape.

The Lambeth Bullies

Location: Lambeth

Challenges: Prevent Bullies from killing more than two civilians

Recommended Level: 3

Reward (£): 265 + 75 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 250 + 100 (Full Synch Bonus)

A bunch of bullies shouldn’t be a problem for an assassin. Climb up the buildings that surround the courtyard where the bullies are located.

From there, jump to the connected buildings. Scan the area for a rope that allows you to jump down and kill Clyde instantly. Once you did, rush towards Ada and kill her as well. These two are the only bullies that kill civilians.

Ignore the rest of the adds and try to flee the area to complete the mission.

The Fletchers

Location: Lambeth

Challenges: Kill both targets at the same time

Recommended Level: 3

Reward (£): 264 + 75 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 250 + 100 (Full Synch Bonus)

As you approach the targets, opt to move from roof-to-roof while keeping track of the Fletchers.

Wait patiently till the move to the south side of the area. Move to the roof when they are positioned there. You have two options now: perform a double assassination, or simply use the Nitro crate nearby to kill them.

The latter is a safer and easier way of doing it, though it can attract lots of attention if you fail. Once both are dead, take the roofs again and make an escape.

The Jekyll Brothers

Location: The Thames

Challenges: Have a police officer kill one of the targets

Recommended Level: 3

Reward (£): 132 + 75 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 200 + 100 (Full Synch Bonus)

The docks prevent you from using roofs, so take a slower approach on the ground. Use your Eagle Vision to find the targets, and bump into them (or simply hit them) to chase you. Once they start, simply find the closest police officer.

As you get close to the officer, make sure you avoid bumping into him. He’ll automatically start fighting the targets.

One of the brothers will get caught in a losing fight against the officer, during which time you’ll have to locate the other one and kill him. Once you do, simply use the waters nearby for an easy escape.

Tom Eccleston

Location: The Thames

Challenges: Kill target with an Air Assassination

Recommended Level: 4

Reward (£): 264 + 100 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 250 + 125 (Full Synch Bonus)

Head towards the location of the target and use the walkway near the road. Head to the south portion of the restricted area and jump onto the ledge. Once on the ledge, look for the end of the dock below.

Use your Eagle Vision to spot Tom, and wait for him to walk into range. Perform an Air Assassination on him, then head back up the wall and run across the street to get out of danger.

Captain Hargrave II

Location: The Thames

Challenges: Dispose of the target’s body in the Thames River

Recommended Level: 4

Reward (£): 264 + 100 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 250 + 125 (Full Synch Bonus)

The target is on board a ship in the middle of the Thames River. You’ll need to get on one of the ships surrounding him and get on the high mast. Once you are on high ground, look down and use your Eagle Vision to spot Hargrave.

Use your Rope Launch and attempt an assassination from above. Kill the other enemy on his boat quickly, then throw the target’s body into the river. Jump into the river after the body and swim away to safety.

The Slaughterhouse Siblings

Location: City of London

Challenges: Have Charlie kill her brother

Recommended Level: 5

Reward (£): 264 + 125 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 250 + 150 (Full Synch Bonus)

Head to the top of the house in the center of the courtyard and kill the scout on the roof and the other on the balcony. Once you’ve done so, use ledge assassinations to kill off some of the enemies inside.

Enter the house quickly after this, taking care of the remainder of the adds. Make sure to leave the siblings for the last.

Once the entire house is clear, have your hallucinogenic dart ready. Once you sport Charlie, shoot her and exit the house. She will take care of her brother herself thanks to the dart.

Once her brother is dead, head back into the house and finish her off any way you please. Head back to the streets and make a run for it to escape.

Myrtle Platt

Location: Southwark

Challenges: Kill the target using hanging barrels

Recommended Level: 5

Reward (£): 400 + 125 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 300 + 150 (Full Synch Bonus)

Head to the top of the factory and enter it through the door on the roof. You’ll be on the top floor. Take out the single scout here, and then move to the next level. You’ll encounter another guard here as well.

Kill him, then go to the next level. Here, you’ll find two enemies and Myrtle. You’ll need to take out the two enemies first in order to lure Myrtle under the hanging barrels.

Kill them, then whistle to lure him under the barrels. Use a throwing knife or your gun to release the barrels, which should crush and kill the target. Once done, run out the open window and head for the streets.

Phillip Beckinridge

Location: Southwark

Challenges: Run over the target with a carriage

Recommended Level: 5

Reward (£): 400 + 125 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 300 + 150 (Full Synch Bonus)

Find a carriage near the target location and drive it slowly on the road till the restricted area. Use your Eagle Vision to find Phillip, and wait for him to come to the lower level of the market.

Once he is there, line up the cart and ram into him with full speed. If you miss, simply turn around and re-attempt. Once he’s taken care of, use your carriage’s speed to flee the area.

Eveline Dipper

Location: City of London

Challenges: Kill target while she’s under the smoke bomb effect

Recommended Level: 6

Reward (£): 400 + 150 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 300 + 150 (Full Synch Bonus)

For this assassination, rope launch to the top of one of the surrounding buildings from the street.

Clear the rooftops of the enemy, then check the courtyard below. Locate Eveline, then line yourself up for a Leap of Faith in the cart down below. Before jumping off, throw a smoke bomb towards Eveline, then jump, and take her out while she coughs in the smoke.

The smoke should also give you enough cover to head back to the roof and escape the area.

Thomas Blackroot

Location: City of London

Challenges: Bury the target in a nearby grave

Recommended Level: 6

Reward (£): 400 + 150 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 300 + 150 (Full Synch Bonus)

The outside of the graveyard at the target location is being patrolled by a few enemies. Decide whether you want to take them out one by one, or simply sneak past them into the graveyard.

Regardless, head inside and take care of Thomas, who shouldn’t pose much of a threat if you’re thorough enough.

It might alert the five enemies inside the graveyard, but they shouldn’t really be a problem to deal with either. One of the graves here is marked with a floating Glitch. The grave is near the building.

Take Thomas’ body and drop it over the grave. You don’t need to bury it – simply leave the graveyard via the top of the church.

Peter Needham

Location: The Strand

Challenges: Kill the target using explosives

Recommended Level: 7

Reward (£): 400

XP: 300

Head to the location of this hunt, and head to the top of the yellow building on the southern part of the area. Drop down to the courtyard here, and you should spot Peter moving up and down a set of stairs.

Wait for him to walk towards the stairs as he goes up. Grab the Nitro bottles here (don’t confuse with the TNT crate). While Peter is coming back down the steps, throw the explosives at his feet to kill him.

This will attract a lot of attention, so you’ll have to be really quick in moving out of the area. Try using the same yellow brick building as a means for escape.

Louis Blake

Location: The Strand

Challenges: Kill the target with a headshot

Recommended Level: 8

Reward (£): 532 + 250 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 360 + 250 (Full Synch Bonus)

Take a stroll around the park near the outside fence while using Eagle Vision. You’ll find Louis being flanked by two guards. There’s also a scout blended in with the crowd.

Try to look for a part of the fence near a tree that is in line with the target. While in stealth mode, climb the fence, and slowly move towards Louis.

You’ll need to make a perfect aim with your throwing knife for his head. Once you land it successfully, turn around and jump over the fence, cross the street, and rope launch to the rooftops for a very easy escape.

Argus and Rose Bartlett

Location: The Strand

Challenges: Perform a cover kill on one of the targets

Recommended Level:

Reward (£): 532 + 250 (Full Synch Bonus)

Read More Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Dreadful Crimes ‘Next Stop: Murder! Guide

XP: 360 + 250 (Full Synch Bonus)

Enter the area from the northern part and make your way through the cargo. Kill the enemies as you move clockwise around the courtyard.

When you’re near Argus or Rose, carefully read their routes and try to cut them off by hiding behind one of the walls and whistling to them.

Make sure they are the closest person when you do whistle, or else another enemy will be attracted to your sound.

Once you kill one of them from cover, go all-out attack for the other one. Once the other target is killed, rope launch to the nearest roof and make a run for it.

Wallace Bone

Location: Westminster

Challenges: Kill the target from a hiding spot

Recommended Level: 9

Reward (£): 532 + 250 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 360 + 250 (Full Synch Bonus)

Head to the rooftops on the east part of the target’s area and locate Wallace. Scan the area to find a good hiding spot. One has an enemy looking directly at it while two groups of enemies flank the north and south sides of the alley.

Use a hallucinogenic on the brute in one of the groups while Wallace is at the exact opposite side. The infighting in the group will attract the foes guarding the hiding spot, which should be the ideal time for you to head to it and wait to intercept Wallace’s round.

Quickly grab him as he walks in front of the hiding spot and assassinate him. Head to the rooftops after this for an escape.

Beatrice Gible

Location: Westminster

Challenges: Kill the target with a Voltaic Bomb

Recommended Level: 9

Reward (£): 600 + 350 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 430 + 300 (Full Synch Bonus)

The target here is located in the back of the park.

Voltaic bombs are useful for stunning enemies, but you’ll need multiple in order to kill Beatrice. This is likely going to be a very open conflict because there aren’t many hiding places or higher ground. Put your Voltaic bombs to efficient use.

A good albeit riskier way of guarantee an assassination from the Voltaic bomb is to bring Beatrice’s health down till near death from other means, then to toss a bomb towards her to finish her off.

Edgar Collicott and Bodyguard

Location: Westminster

Challenges: Kill the target or bodyguard with an Air Assassination

Recommended Level: 9

Reward (£): 600 + 350 (Full Synch Bonus)

XP: 430 + 300 (Full Synch Bonus)

The target and his bodyguard are located on the rooftop of the area, and are surrounded by five patrolling enemies. Head to the rooftop before assassinating the scouts.

Identify the targets (bodyguard is female), and get above one of them to perform an Air Assassination. The second target can be killed in any way you please. Do so, and then make an escape from the area to complete this Templar Hunt.
