Assassin’s Creed Unity Heists

Each heist also contains a bonus reward which is drastically reduced if one player in the team is spotted. Furthermore, any player dying during a heist cannot respawn.

Heists are highly randomized when it comes to enemies, chest, and access points. If you’ve your eyes set on the highest price, you may want to jump in with a decent team.

Tithing Templars
Rewards: 250 F, 500 F bonus pool

For this heist, don’t go straight through the graveyard ahead and take the path leading to the sewers below. Down in the sewers, deal with the two guards standing near the boat using any ranged weapon and go through the gate.

Once inside, use Eagle Vision to identify Extremists patrolling the area. If there is any stationary guard at the first junction, leave him be and move towards the next part of the tunnel.

After the second junction, the locations of Extremists may vary. Keep on dropping bodies and head towards the waypoint.

Once you’re near the chest, use Eagle Vision to identify enemies and drop them all before looting the chest. Leave the area to complete the mission.

Catacomb Raider
Rewards: 1,000 F, 2,000 F bonus pool

To get to the underground area, you can choose from a couple of different entrances. Each of these entrances presents different challenges and your task is to get to the underground level by hook or by crook.

Once you’re in the underground area, use Eagle Vision to identify enemies and head towards the waypoint and loot the chest before leaving the area to complete this mission.

The Party Palace
Rewards: 5,000 F, 10,000 F bonus pool

Your task in this mission is to head inside Palais Royal marked by restricted area and retrieve the goodies within the chest. Your foremost tasks should be to split up and scale the entire building, looking for open windows or other entry points.

Once you’re inside, go through different rooms and progress towards the waypoint. Be careful about dropping bodies in the open! Keep on advancing forward and assassinating enemies who might pose a threat.

After reaching the chest, loot it, and leave through the same area from where you came in!

Tip: Sometimes you’ll come across an enemy guarding the open window. In this situation, hold R2/RT and press Square/X for a much better assassination.

Furthermore, you won’t come across any open windows or doors. In this situation, the northern edge of the rooftops are your best bet to get an overview of the area.

Royals, Guns, and Money
Rewards: 5,000 F, 10,000 F bonus pool

Restricted area in this mission contains three chests: one in the central courtyard and two inside the adjacent buildings. You don’t have to loot all of them as only one of them contains the loot you require.

There are no exterior entry points in this area and you must enter from adjacent rooftops. Since the locations of enemies are highly randomized, no entry point is better than the other.

Note: The chest containing the loot is also randomized during different playthroughs.

The chests located inside the adjacent buildings can be reached using an open windows or doors. It’s better to check chests located in the buildings before the one located in the central courtyard as it’s overlooked by enemies from all directions.

Smuggler’s Paradise
Rewards: 5,000 F, 10,000 F bonus pool

Similar to ‘Royals, Guns, and Money’, this mission also requires to search three chests until you’ve found the right one. And although the locations of the chests are fixed, it’s quite difficult from the previous mission.

Similar to previous mission, it’s better to save the chest located in the heart of area for the last. For the other two, it’s better to use Poison Bombs and Disguise Skill to your advantage. The locations of enemies in these areas vary from session to session so I cannot provide a fixed strategy.

For the chest in the central area, start off with assassinating the marksmen overlooking the entire area. For clearing out the rest of the area, you can either use Berserker Blades on tougher foes or utilize Poison Gas Bombs.

Ancient History
Rewards: 25,000 F, 45,000 F bonus pool

If you thought ‘Royals, Guns, and Money’ and ‘The Smuggler’s Paradise’ were difficult, wait until you play this mission. In this mission, there are four chests to open with one of them containing the desired loot.

Furthermore, entry points and enemy locations are highly randomized which makes it difficult to provide a specific strategy.

The buildings that contain chest #1, chest #2, and chest #3 have highly randomized entry points and you can expect them to be teeming with enemies.

The last chest is found in the open area, but similar to other chests, it’s surrounded by a lot of regular enemies and sentries overlooking the area from above.

It Belongs in a Museum
Rewards: 25,000 F, 45,000 F bonus pool

In this mission, you need to steal four different pieces of art. Out of these four, only one is original. Just like the previous mission, the entry points and the locations of enemies are highly randomized. Therefore, we cannot recommend a solid strategy that will work a hundred per cent.

To complicate things a little more, the locations of each frame is also changed from session to session.

Since the building in which the pieces of artwork are located is large, it may take a couple of tries to complete this. Moreover, I would recommend completing it with three people so that you can divide and search different areas simultaneously.

You’ll most likely to come across some open windows or doors near the sides of Palais du Luxembourgh to reach the waypoints.
