Assassin's Creed 3 Walkthrough Part 11 – Sequence 2: Infiltrating Southgate – Kill Silas Thatcher

With the final slaves freed it is time to focus on the last person who needs to die today, Silas Thatcher. This will trigger a cutscene with Silas Thatcher flying into a rage. Once his rant is finished it is time to get much closer and deal with him.

After the cutscene Hathaym is thrust into battle. Start with the parry option and be ready to start grabbing nearby people. This scripted event is meant to teach you how to avoid firing line damage. It only take a moment but it does take a little practice to get the timing right. The human shield option is presently only when the squad is about to fire. Once the first human shield is down, charge the firing line and fight them. They seem to understand very well what is going on and change over to melee fighting themselves.

Now start to the South. Kenway has a second firing squad to deal with ahead of him. Be sure that a suitable human shield is handy so you can avoid the damage. This means as Kenway runs to the South, he will want to run toward the large group of soldiers on the right-hand side of the road. From there break to the left and run fast toward the wall aiming at the barrels to start the free-run sequence up the wall. If you can make the run fast enough, you will not need the second human shield.

Once you make it up the wall, turn immediately to the left. You will spot a host of redcoats. In the middle is your target. You can charge and kill him easily. Wiping out the rest of his troop. It will finish with a cutscene where the rest of the troop is wiped out and the natives are freed.

Be wary as this part can get very glitchy some times. If things are not working well, then change over to Hathaym's sword to simply take care of the rest. Finish this and Sequence 2 is complete.
