Helix Glitches are collectibles in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. They are scattered across the game’s seven boroughs, typically in the air above the streets and alleys of London. In this guide we’ll show you where to collect all Helix Glitches in the City of London.
Collecting Helix Glitches gives you Helix credits, the game’s premium in-game currency which you can exchange for various Helix Rewards.
Helix Glitches in City of London
There are 30 Helix Glitches hidden in the City of London borough.
In the southeast corner of the City of London, hovering in the air above a low factory building and between two taller ones. Climb to the roof of one of the taller factories, then use your Rope Launcher on the topmost point of the roof of the other factory.
Climb to the top of the Monument, then look down and to the north. There’s a leaf pile on the square below. Perform a Leap of Faith into the pile and collect the Glitch in midair.
Above the train tracks directly north of the Monument. Climb to one of the buildings next to the train tracks and the glitch, then use the Rope Launcher on the building on the opposite side of the tracks. Just slide across and collect the Glitch.
Head west along the train tracks from the previous Glitch and you’ll see a cluster of wooden buildings to the right, past a building made of red and gray brick. Use the Rope Launcher to get on the roof of the low building with two windows on the rights side of its roof. There’s a rope extending from the edge of the roof to the adjacent building – walk across it to collect the Glitch.
Climb to the south roof of the Royal Exchange Building, on the balustrade that overlooks the courtyard below. Move along it until you’re parallel with the Glitch, then use the Rope Launcher on the bottom of the balustrade on the north roof of the building, across the courtyard. Slide across and collect the Helix Glitch.

Northeast of the previous one, there’s a red-brick church on the eastern side of the block of buildings there. Climb to the balustrade below the top of the church spire and look for a stack of leaves below. Perform a Leap of Faith into the leaf pile below and collect the Glitch on the way down.
Go west and climb to the tallest spire of St. Mary-le-Bow church. Use the Rope Launcher on the top of the church’s eastern spire, then slide across and collect the Glitch

Northeast of St. Paul’s Cathedral, climb up the southern facade of the eastern wing of a U-shaped building. The Glitch is hovering above the two statues of women that are facing the street on the south. Jump from one to the other to collect it.
Head west down the street from the previous Glitch and look for a construction site in the next block of buildings, before the train tracks. Enter the train tracks and climb to the nearest scaffold to the left. There are three workers there, taking a break. Approach the edge of the scaffold and look down. The Glitch is one of the wooden girders in the ditch below. Jump down and collect it.
Climb up to the train tracks next to the construction site where you collected the previous Glitch, then head south. Climb up the second metal structure above the tracks, then to the top of one of the two tall metal posts with signs on them. Jump across to the other one to collect the Helix Glitch.
Climb to the top of the smokestack of the Wolfshead Brewing Co. factory, then perform a Leap of Faith down into a haystack in the west. You’ll collect the Glitch on your way down.
Three blocks west of the previous one, there’s a construction site with a lot of scaffolds to the south of the train tracks. Climb to the scaffold that is hanging off the side of the building on the site’s eastern edge(next to the advertisement for Oakey’s knife polish). From there, perform a Leap of Faith into the haystack below.
In the block of buildings south and across the street from the previous one. Climb to the roof of the buildings on the north side of the block, then get down to the other side of the roof. Look down, you’ll see a balcony on the middle building – the Glitch is hidden there. Jump down and collect it.
In a small cemetery two blocks down from the previous one. It is on the V-shaped tree to the side of the fountain in the middle of the cemetery. Climb up and collect it.
