This Gang Stronghold activity is located in the central Westminster borough, just west of Westminster Abbey and south of the Wellington Barracks. This memory requires us to take out 14 Blighters who are residing within restricted area here. It’s a good idea to climb up to the rooftops and use your Eagle Vision to tag the enemies as soon as possible. In addition to revealing enemy locations, it will also display the optional objective – the location of the Heist Plans that we need to destroy in white.

The Blighters holed up on this area are made up of a three Snipers, two Lookouts, the Leader and nine standard melee types. All of them, unless disturbed or alerted are usually patrolling set routes or stationary in set locations.

The Lookouts, as always should be taken out early on to prevent them from calling in reinforcements. The first can be found patrolling between the center of the area and the northern wall of the restricted area whilst the second is wandering around in the open area of the western part of the area.

Tag the enemies using Eagle Vision from the rooftops (left). Use knives or an air assassination to kill the Leader undetected (right).

With the Lookouts out of the way, we can focus on the Leader who we will want to kill undetected for the optional objective. He can be found in the dead center of the area in a small fenced zone between buildings. Air assassination from a rooftop is a good bet here, but use of throwing knives is also recommended. As long as you kill her undetected, the optional objective will be completed.

After dealing with the Leader, we’ll be able to clear out the remaining enemies. Before killing all of the them to end the memory though, you’ll also want to check out the interior of the northernmost freestanding building in the restricted zone (you’ll need to enter via top floor windows). Inside you’ll often find the Heist Plans that we need to burn for the optional objective.

Once you have completed the optional objectives, kill the other enemies as you deem fit. After they have all been dealt with, the memory will be completed.
