How To Unlock Gifted Escapist In Assassin’s Creed Mirage

Damaging public property will get you an achievement in AC Mirage.

The Gifted Escapist achievement in Assassin’s Creed Mirage can be obtained by destroying a total of 20 scaffolding structures. Though it may sound pretty simple, these scaffoldings are pretty easy to miss if you don’t know what you are looking for.

We speak from experience because before knowing about the achievements, we ignored them since they seemingly served no other purpose.

After collapsing these scaffoldings, you can either look for another one or break the same one again which respawns after you fast travel. This guide will walk you through everything you need to know to unlock this achievement.

How to collapse scaffolding structures in AC Mirage

In order to collapse the scaffolding structures in Assassin’s Creed Mirage, you must first locate them. Although they blend in with the environment, they are scattered throughout Baghdad, making it a bit easier to find them.

They appear as simple wooden shelves standing next to walls with sandbags on top and a rope hanging from them. If you spot one, just go near it and select the “Collapse” prompt to take it down with a cool finisher move.

Repeat the process of collapsing the scaffolding 20 times and you’ll unlock the achievement of Gifted Escapist in Assassin’s Creed Mirage.

Though the process is pretty harmless for you, it can cause civilian casualties if you are not careful. We recommend either waiting for civilians to move away or choosing another location to collapse the scaffolding as taking too many innocent lives can cause Assassin’s Creed Mirage to desync.
