By GamesRecon

If you’ve just wrapped up the adrenaline-pumping Prologue in Assassin’s Creed Mirage and stepped into the Hidden Ones, I bet you’re excited to get your hands on some nice gear. Well, you’re in luck! You should have to consider the Damascus Gate Prison Gear Chest, a valuable treasure just waiting to be unlocked. If you enter Baghdad city through the Qutrabbul Gate, you will find the Damascus Gate Prison by moving towards the south. To make it more clear, it’s on the eastern side of the Iron Gate.

By reaching the prison, you will spot the chest right in your front. But the problem is you can access it easily as the chest is placed Harbiyah Gear Chest inside the locked prison and the place is full of guards waiting to attack. This guide walks you through the twists and turns, so you can get that gate open and claim the Damascus Gate Prison Gear Chest in AC Mirage.

How to Unlock the Damascus Gate Prison and Get the Gear Chest

AC Mirage Damascus Gate 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 throwing knife. 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. Remember, in this game, it’s always good to carry at least one of these useful items.

Now, let’s talk game plan; you are going to enter 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 will play a crucial part here.

Accessing the Gate

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 talking 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 have an ‘oops’ surprise 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 taken down, pull out the 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.

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.

Wait for the perfect moment when one is strolling away, and the other is admiring the scenery (or whatever guards do). Now’s your chance to kill him; the fellow on the ground is easy peasy. With the area clear, walk up to that gate, fling it open, and there is the Damascus Gate Prison Gear Chest in front of you to open and loot its great rewards.

Got the Zanj Uprising Sword from the Gate Chest

When you open the chest, you will receive the Zanj Uprising Sword. This isn’t just any old slicer-dicer; this sword is for the nimble, the quick, the ‘why block when you can dance away?’ kind of fighter. This sword comes with the ability: to land a perfect dodge, and your next attack will hit with 50% more damage.

It’s perfect for those who prefer a good sidestep over a block. Picture it: you’re surrounded, things are looking dicey, but you, armed with this sword in hand, can dodge at the right moment, and then—your counter is nothing short of epic. For the dodge-savvy, the Zanj Uprising Sword is like a magic wand. With this in your hand, you’re not just surviving those scuffles with multiple guards; you’re thriving.
