Welcome to the Assassin’s Creed: Mirage Trophy and Achievement guide!

3/10 Estimated Difficulty
25 Estimated Hours to Completion
1 Minimum Playthrough
1 Missable Trophies/Achievements

Mirage is a bit of a classic take on Assassin’s Creed and the Trophy/Achievement list reflects that as well.

There are 50 Trophies/Achievements to earn and they will not take you that long. For the most part, you can play through the game however you’d like. There are just a couple of things that you’ll need to be aware of.

Outside of the two things mentioned below, you can play how you want. There is free roam after the story and you can still work on collecting any remaining collectibles. All of the collectibles will not become fully available until you reach certain story beats, so feel free to collect what you can if its on your way during the story. Just don’t spend too much time searching early on in the story.

Speaking of collectibles, they will be added to your map/compass when you get near them or synchronize a viewpoint. You can also use your eagle to fly over areas and search for collectibles. The icons will appear when they are found. You can then tag them from the overhead view so that you know where to go and look.

Missable

There is only one missable. That would be, “You Snooze, You Lose.” You’re going to need to pickpocket a guard that is carrying a key after shooting him with a blowdart.

The reason this is missable is because there are only so many chances where you’ll run into enemies holding keys. So, you’ll want to get this out of the way as soon as you can. After assassinating your first major target, you’ll be given the chance to unlock a tool. Pick the blowdart so that you can begin working on this right away.

Pickpocket

The only other thing to be aware of is pickpocketing. You’re going to need to do it frequently. This is how you earn money, trinkets to sell and Tokens. There are even some collectibles that are tied to pickpocketing.

Make sure you’re pickpocketing as often as possible. You’ll get the chance a lot as you make your way through the crowded streets.

This can be made much easier and faster by going into the Menu > Options > Gameplay > Guaranteed Pickpocket – ON. This will make sure that every pickpocket is successful. This does not disable Trophies/Achievements.

Viewpoints

As any Assassin’s Creed veteran will know, viewpoints are important to get as soon as you can. These are tall structures that you can climb. At the top, you can synchronize your map. This will defog a portion of the map, add collectibles to your map and they act as fast travel points. So, make sure to synchronize every viewpoint you come across. Not only is this required for a Trophy/Achievement, but it will also make traveling easier and faster.

You can just ride the timer out in a hiding spot for as long as you can. I was able to stay hidden in a group of NPCs for the full 10 minutes.

  • The Shadow and the Flame

Once “Notorious” pops, save your game.

Then, it’ll be time to walk around and wait for a Shakiriyya enemy to spawn. These enemies only spawn at notoriety level 3. They will have two swords with them and will use throwing knives. If you tag one, it will be marked with the same icon as the third circle of the notoriety meter.

These enemies are pretty tough. Do your best to try and get the jump on them. Hide or wait on the rooftops above. You can stealth attack them to inflict some damage or use throwing knives. Throwing knives are effective against them. Their attacks are fast, so be ready to use dodge to avoid them. Dodge an attack and get one or two hits in before you have to dodge again. If you can get space between you two, use throwing knives.
