    Can you please show an overall map of the Glitches like in the other Boroughs?

  2. R

    I agree with Tyler Deye

    We’ve added the map for City of London. Thanks to Tyler and Ryan for the suggestion.

      Oh no thank you!! Makes it so much easier than following a video, and faster!

    2. M

      The numbering is off. 22 in the description list is actually for location 23, 30 in the list is location 29 etc.
      I’m not sure where the mistakes start because 1 and 2 are correct.

  4. M

    You’ve made a mistake on 28. Just look and compare it to 28 on the map (right close to the water).

    Now to figure out how to get this damn glitch lol.

    1. M

      Got it. Get close to it and then aim the camera so that you can do a leap of faith into the water and you’ll hit it on the apex. But yes, your description of 28 is for another glitch.

        Thank you for this. It really helped me.

  5. G

    followed all but still missing one.

  6. D

    Thanks for the guide, but i have the same problem of Gio… still missing one.

    1. D

      Number 8 on this guide is the one I was missing. It didn’t show on my map until I got on top of the building beside it.

  7. W

    Followed the map and hit every point but missing 2…..

  8. K

    Hi, I am unable to get the glitch in the southeastern most part of London, the one marked 1 in this thread. Ive jumped back and forth across there many times and half the time I go right through the glitch but it has never said that Ive got it and its still there on the map. How do I fix this?

    1. S

      same here, can anyone help? :/

      1. B
        Brittany Burr

        Same here xbox one

    2. D

      Some of the glitches you have to stop on and turn around on the zipline. I’ve had some that I spent a minute or two on before they would register.

    3. J

      I would stay near the area and shut the game off. Then reboot it and see if you can collect it then.

  9. Thanks gosu noob for helping me find #27! I followed your map which didn’t me because it doesn’t have landmarks like shops, to tell me where it is and the fragments on the map take up too much space on it to help me which buildings surround the glitch. but your video helped!! thx I always come to your website for assassin’s creed unity thx for that too. Will you do assassin’s creed emipire too?

    1. L

      If it is any good, as the previous tittles, we’ll certainly give our best :d

    I have found almost every Helix glitch in the game, except supposedly one glitch in the City of London. I bought all of the maps from the in-game vendors, and I have gone back to every location that is shown in this guide for the City of London, and still I am missing one glitch, according to the game. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to find the missing glitch? I am hoping and assuming that I have found all of the game glitches, and this may be one of them, but I still have one memory to play before I finish the game. There might be a glitch waiting for me there!

    1. L

      Looking at the comments on that youtube video up there, people are saying that some of them are not marked on the map. So, even if you’ve bought the maps, you might not be able so see them. The numbers mention are the 11, 14. 24 and more. Maybe go through them?

    2. G

      It looks like 28 description and image needs to move to number 8 and the rest can fix if you move them all up.

  11. G

    I notice that 8 is where the locations no longer match the spots on the map. I’m following this as best I can and am grateful for it though. Better than nothing.
