The security of François Hollande

“I have the Templar cross because the Templars spoke to me,” BSD said. I am a Christian and when the order of the Templars was created, their initial function was to provide pilgrimage for those traveling to the Holy Land from Europe to Jerusalem.

How do you get the chest in the prison at Bab Dimashq? In the new Assassin’s Creed Mirage you come to the prison at Bab Dimashq early in the game. In addition to the quest, there is also a golden equipment chest in the large prison. The chest is in the ditch around the prison, but the door is locked or locked.

To reach the chest at the prison, you don’t have to find a key or look for a secret passage. The solution to the “puzzle” is easier than you initially think, because you simply have to move to the other side of the ditch in front of the locked door. On the other side you can see a small opening in the iron grille. Although you can’t climb through the opening into the room with the chest, you can throw a throwing knife at the barricaded door from the other side and unlock it. Once you have destroyed the lock and the barricade of the door with the throwing knife, you simply have to climb back to the other side and then go through the door. In the chest at the prison near Bab Dimashq there is the treasure “Zanj Sword of Rebellion”.

  1. In front of the locked door, go to the other side of the ditch and stand in front of the small opening in the iron grate.
  2. Equip the throwing knife using the R2 button (PlayStation) or the RT button (Xbox). Aim at the lock or crossbar with the L2 button (PlayStation) or the LT button (Xbox) and use the R2 button or the LT button to throw the throwing knife. It is important to make sure that you aim correctly at the crossbar and that the crosshairs are displayed red. Otherwise you’ll constantly be throwing things against the iron bars.
  3. Climb back to the other side, go through the door and open the golden equipment chest.

A little further south of the prison at Bab Dimashq is also the area “The Four Markets”. There is also an equipment chest here that is not that easy to reach. We have already created detailed instructions on how to open the chest on the four markets in another article.
