Assassinate Enemies as you Infiltrate the Outer Walls

Interact with the Raiders
- Interact with your fellow raiders once the enemies have been cleared.
Infiltrate the Lower Fort to Free More Captives
- Once you have penetrated through the outer walls of the fort, you shall find the inner area to be sectioned into 3 parts with captive raiders caged in. Break the gates by smashing them with brute force instead of unlocking them one by one in order to speed up the rescue mission.
- Breaking the raider captives out faster will allow more of them to join your army as you go, defeating obstructing enemies forces with greater ease.
- You shall find two more subdivided areas as you travel uphill, one with captives in two cages and the other in four. Free them all and overwhelm the remaining Mongol Forces.
Clear the Area of Mongols

Rampage Into the Upper Gates
- Lead your forces onwards, through and into the upper gates of the fort.
Clear Out the Upper Fort
- Clean out the upper area of the fort with overwhelming advantage of sheer numbers.
Break Through the Last Gate

Slay Khunbish the Mongol Lord
- You shall encounter the mini-boss inhabiting the Fort - Mongol forces leader Khunbish.
- Hold [L1] and [R1] to initiate the battle by landing several hard strikes onto him.
- Khunbish will attempt to flee the scene once you dominate the fight. Continue to pursue him through the bridge, into the house and climb up the ladders to corner him and slay him.
