AC Mirage Damascus Gate Prison

After all, even the most cunning assassin needs a good map—or at least a friendly guide pointing them in the right direction. So, you’ve entered the grand stage of Baghdad through the Qutrabbul Gate. It’s a lovely spot, but we’ve got our sights set on something a little more… exclusive. As you stand there, you’ll want to head south and cross that picturesque river—feel free to admire the view and there it is: Damascus Gate Prison. A bit of mystery, a dash of danger—just how we like it. The Gear Chest you’re after is playing hard to get, nestled near the front entrance of the prison.

Before you go gallivanting off to play hide-and-seek with guards and chests, let’s make sure you’re kitted out. First things first, take a quick peek into that inventory of yours, what you’re looking for is a trusty throwing knife. Not for spreading butter on your morning bread, of course, but for something a little more… unlock-y. It’s all good if you have got one but if not, no worries—Baghdad’s full of ways to get your hands on one. Just remember, in our line of work, it’s always good to carry at least one of these useful items. You never know when you’ll need to cut through more than just tension.

Now, let’s talk game plan; we’re about to enter into a zone that’s brimming with guards who have a rather unhealthy attachment to their patrol routes. So if you fancy going in without ringing alarm bells, Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s stealth element is your best option there.

Accessing the Gate

We’ll start by sidling up to the prison from the front, but stick to the left side and there’s a wall there that you need to climb. Keep your eyes open for the guard on patrol up top. Timing is everything; wait until he’s got his back turned, and then it’s showtime. A little assassinate action and he won’t even know what hit him. Remember, we’re going for silent but deadly—no ruckus, no fuss.

Below, you’ll see two guards chit-chatting by a sack of red spice. Here’s where a bit of luck and timing comes in handy. Take out the guard farthest from the sack first, and with a bit of good fortune, his teammate might just have an ‘oops’ moment and burst that sack, blinding himself with spices. It’s not the most dignified way to go, but it works.

Throwing the knife to unlock the prison gate.

With the guards out of the picture, take a breath and pull out that throwing knife. Peer through the fence and spot the lock on the gate. Line up that shot—wait for the reticle to glow red and then? Let it fly. If it’s more ‘clang’ than ‘thwack,’ you’ve hit the fence, and that’s no good. Aim true, and you’ll have easy success.

How to Obtain the Damascus Gate Prison Gear Chest

You must leave by the entrance you just came through and proceed to the opposite end of the main gate. On this side, you’ll spot a pair of guards up on the wall and another one hanging out on the ground. You don’t need to bother with both of those wall-watchers—just the one who’s got the best view of our chest.
