Cheats, Tips and Strategy

Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game. These include crafting Ignifer and scaring rats. As well as these hints and tips we also have a mini-guide here which goes into more details on some of the tips we have below:

Hitting the Boar

During the hunting scene at the start of the game there is a challenge where you have to sneak up on a boar and shoot it with a slingshot. To do this successfully you must be quick. The slingshot makes sounds that will frighten the boar and make it run away therefore you need to aim and shoot before the attention indicator above the animal is filled.

Crafting Ignifer

To craft Ignifer you need 1x Rock, 1x Sulfur, and 1x Alcohol. The easiest way to find these ingredients is to look for wooden chests, intact or broken that are in the area you want to use Ignifer. Check out our How to Craft page to learn how to make things in A Plague Tale: Innocence.

Scaring Rats

Once you have met Lucas you will get access to Ignifer which you can shoot using the Slingshot to light up torches, haystacks in the field or anything else that can catch fire to ward off rats and make a path you can walk. Check out our How to avoid Rats page to learn how you can get away from the swarms of rats.

Don't Leave Hugo

Make a point of always avoiding situations where you have to leave Hugo alone as doing so for too long will make him panic and reveal your location to your pursuers.

Upgrade Carrying Capacity

Once you reach the old woman's house in Chapter 2 you shold focus on upgrading your carrying capacity using the workbench which is outside her house. You do not want to be scavenging for materials and then realise you have to leave behind what you cannot carry. Check out our Finding Crafting Materials page to find out where your can get resources to make things.

Alchemist Carts

A good source for crafting materials are the carts belonging to the alchemists. You will find some of these near the main path whilst others you will have to search for as they are hidden in the alleys or side paths.

Killing Guards

If possible you should sneak past guards rather than trying to kill them. If it is absolutely necesary to kill a guard to progress in the game you should use your rock and sling and aim at the guards unprotected head to kill them.
