How to solve papyrus riddles?

Solving a papyrus riddle is a process that takes time and effort. When you find a scroll, open up your inventory, and look for it under “papyri” (they’re in the top right corner). When you move the cursor over it, you’ll see the text of the riddle. It’ll tell you where to go, but in a really vague way. Oftentimes, it’ll point you towards major landmarks, like statues, temples or pyramids. Your first task is to figure out the approximate location based on the landmarks mentioned or referenced in the riddle.

Once you’re there, open the scroll again and examine it. The rest of the riddle will give you info about the exact location of the treasure, probably in relation to the previously mentioned landmark. Use the animus pulse in your search, it could be of great help. Once you’ve found the spot, you’ll get a legendary item and some currency.

There’s still no word of a grand reward for completing them all, but stuff like this used to grant players a Master Assassin outfit in previous games. We’ll update the guide with hints and solutions for all papyrus riddles once AC Origins is released.
