London is divided up into seven boroughs, each of which is controlled by the Blighters (the Templar gang) and is ruled over by a district gang leader. Each borough is further broken down into numerous smaller regions each of which contains a major associate activity. Completing the associate activity within this region will liberate it. Major associate activities include:

  • **Bounty Hunts –** This activity requires you to enter a restricted area and identify a specific target. We need to kill/kidnap the target and take them/their body via carriage to a target location. You'll earn bonus XP/money for keeping them alive.
  • **Child Liberations –** These involve sneaking into factories, killing a foreman and freeing groups of children. Doing these without sounding alarms will net you bonus XP/money.
  • **Gang Stronghold –** These activities usually require us to enter a restricted area and clear out the enemy presence. Optional objectives (which differ by area) can be completed to earn additional XP/money.
  • **Templar Hunt –** The Templar Hunt activities require us to identify a specific target within a restricted area and kill them. Bonus XP/money is given for killing them in a specific way (differs by area).

Liberating regions of a borough will reduce the number of hostile gang members you see in the streets around this area and increase the presence of Rooks who you can recruit if need be. Completing all of the associate activities within a borough will unlock a Gang War activity in which you will need to take on the leader.
