Assassin's Creed II Guide

Templar Lairs

Templar Lairs are much like Assassins Tombs in that they require the solving “climbing puzzles” to uncover treasure -- florins, in this case.

These three maps are not part of the main game (well, they are on the disc, but you need a code to unlock them). Those who either pre-ordered Assassin’s Creed II or purchased one of the special editions of the game may have one or more of these maps. For those who didn’t, the “Sequence 13: Bonfire of the Vanities & Secret Locations DLC,” priced at $7.00 USD (or 560 Microsoft Points), contains Sequence 13 and the three Templar Lair locations bundled with the collector’s editions of the game.

Home Invasion

Location: Palazzo Medici in Florence
Unlocked: Sequence 5
Reward: 5250 florins

Rescuing Lorenzo de' Medici from the Templar

A code for the Palazzo Medici bonus map was given out as a GameStop preorder bonus, and also comes packaged with the Master Assassin Edition (NA) and the Black Edition (EU).

Over Beams, Under Stone

Location: Santa Maria Gloriosa Dei Frari in Venice
Unlocked: Sequence 7
Reward: 4000 florins

Finding the treasure room

A code for the Santa Maria Dei Frari bonus map comes packaged with the Master Assassin Edition (NA), the White Edition, and the Black Edition (EU).


Location: Arsenale Drydocks in Venice
Unlocked: Sequence 10
Reward: 4000 florins

Finding the Templar strong box

A code for the Arsenal Shipyard bonus map comes packaged with the Black Edition (EU).

the way into the secret area behind the cage is in a pipe in the water, if you look around the edge of the water under the boat, roughly opposite where the ladder & first pipe on ledge is, you will see a half pipe submerged in the water. jump in & swim up to it, dive under & just follow it through, it leads you to the area of the secret treasure, cheers

There is a secret room with a lever in the first room where the ship is being built. It looks like you access it from under water but I can't find a way in. Anyone had any luck?

I am stuck near beginning. I have gotten the secret treasure chests near boat hull and climbed up on boat hull 100 times. I get to the Curved Wall/Boat Hull section where a double jump maneuver is required. Using the PC, I cannot for the life of me, figure out how to Jump Up and then Backwards to land on the high platform (before meeting 2 guards on the top ledge.
Someone Please HELP.
BTW- I do go to the left side of the raised/suspended hull section as I have seen others do in videos. But I cannot get to the platform.

Can someone tell me what the Keystrokes are to complete the jump ? What kind of Timing is necessary ? 1/2 second between keystrokes ? 1 full second ? This is painful.
