Assassin's Creed Unity Walkthrough

22. Murder Mysteries

Murder mysteries appear early into the game. One appears in the middle of the map and the others appear after that first one is completed. You need only finish one for the sake of trophies in the base game, but you also need to complete the two that come with the free DLC. Since each murder mystery has a correct answer you must make correctly for a higher reward, finishing them is very easy with a list of the correct murderers. These will be hidden by spoiler tags in the event that you'd not like to see the names right away.

Assassin's Creed Unity | Murder Mysteries

Murder Foretold

This mystery must be completed in order for the rest of the mysteries to become available on the map. Investigate the body of Friar Jean, then continue looking for clues. The Abbot suggests that one of the three surviving monks could have been responsible for killing the rest, but shakes that idea off. Look around for clues, most of which are in the very same building, then collect statements from the three monks in the area.

The Body in the Brothel

Note: This mission only unlocks after finishing the Marquis de Sade's three Paris Stories, starting with My Kingdom for Some Whores and ending with Sadistic Blackmail.

One of the Marquis de Sade's favorite girls has been murdered, and naturally the primary suspect is the Marquis. Find out who's really behind the murder and free his name once again.

Bones of Contention

A bag of bones has washed up on the shores of the river, with the only thing identifying them being a gold tooth. There aren't many people with a gold tooth around, so the victim should be easily identifiable.

The Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat

Jean-Paul Marat was a revolutionary, which means that he probably wasn't going to live long anyway. That doesn't mean the murder should get off scot-free.
