Assassin’s Creed Mirage‘s Baghdad can be both thrilling and challenging. If you’re on the hunt for all the enigma locations and their corresponding puzzle solutions, you’ve come to the right place. This guide will help you uncover each hidden enigma location and provide step-by-step solutions to the puzzles they present in AC Mirage. From the streets of Harbiyah to the untouched expanses of the Wilderness, we’ve detailed every spot you need to visit.
Enigma #1 – A Challenge
Location: Head to Abbasiyah, just southeast of the renowned House of Wisdom. You’ll spot a building that’s locked up tight. But here’s a hint: there’s a note waiting for you on a wooden balcony. The catch? You’ll need to showcase your parkour skills. Ascend to the building’s roof and make a daring drop onto the balcony to get the Enigma.
How to Solve: Your next destination lies southeast of the Gate of Tahir in Abbasiyah. Head to the spot where the river takes a split and sets its course. Your eagle eyes should catch a watermill building. Upon closer inspection, you’ll find a window that’s been blocked off, right next to a barred door. But here’s where your assassin training comes in handy: take out your trusty knife and hurl it across, shattering the window on the opposite side. With an entry point now available, make your way into the mill. Dive deep into the grain, and voilà, the hidden treasure reveals itself.
Enigma #2 – A Gift For You
Location: Alright, gear up and head over to Round City. You’re aiming for a spot southwest of the big ol’ Palace of the Green Dome. Among the city’s hustle and bustle, there’s this one house that’s just screaming “come check me out!” You’ll find a locked door on the second floor, but don’t sweat it. There’s a blocked window nearby that’s just asking for a little knife action. Give it a toss, break that window on the other side, and climb on through. Voilà! Your enigma’s right there, waiting for you.
How to Solve: Now, head over to the Mazalim Courts, just north of the palace. When you hit the west entrance, keep an eye out for a fountain that’s seen better days. It might not look like much, but hey, this is Assassin’s Creed we’re talking about. Dive into that fountain, and bam! You’ve got yourself a treasure.
Enigma #3 – A Holy Hoard
Location: Set course for Harbiyah, specifically where the districts of Harbiyah and Karkh intertwine. Set your compass eastward from the Prince’s Gate, and you’ll find your destination. The building you’re looking for is clearly marked on your map, and the enigma? It’s tucked away on the ground floor, waiting for the keen-eyed adventurer.
How to Solve: Your quest doesn’t end in Harbiyah. Head to the eastern shoreline, close to the historic Nestorian Monastery. As you comb the area, a particular tree by the shore, standing sentinel next to an ancient boat wreck, will catch your eye. Dive into your search between this forsaken vessel and the tree, and the treasure will reveal itself, a testament to the many secrets Night City holds.
Enigma #4 – Delight By The Dome
Alright, Assassin, first stop: Abbasiyah. You’re looking for that standout Mosque with the killer Viewpoint. Seriously, if you haven’t checked out the view from there, you’re missing out. Anyway, once you’re inside, head up to the second floor. Among all the old-school books and stuff, there’s an Enigma that’s your ticket to some sweet loot.
How to Solve: Next up, take a stroll to the park just north of the Dome of the Ass in the southern part of Abbasiyah. It’s got a stone gazebo and a pond that’s perfect for some reflection – both the mental and the “looking for shiny things in the water” kind. And speaking of shiny things, right next to that pond is where you’ll find your treasure.
Enigma #5 – Find What I Stole
Location: Make your way to Harbiyah. You’re aiming for the area south of the Qutrabbul Gate. If you’re hanging around the Damascus Gate Prison, just head a bit north across the river. Now, the city wall here isn’t just for show. Your hint? Check under the bridge. Yep, right where it casts its shadow. That’s where you’ll find the enigma, just chilling and waiting for you.
How to Solve: Ready for the next leg of the journey? Head south, right towards the Soap Boiler’s District. As you’re wandering around, whip out that map of yours. It’ll point you to a square, and you’ll know it by the big tarps everywhere. But the real star of the show? A modest wooden building right in the center. Might not look like much, but trust me, step inside and you’re in for a treat. Harbiyah’s got secrets, and one of them’s waiting for you right there.
Enigma #6 – Joy Beneath Weeping Palms
Location: Set out into the Wilderness, a vast expanse just south of the city’s protective walls. Your bearings? Head south from the bustling House of Poulterers or the vibrant Bazaar. Amidst the solitude, a small graveyard beckons near the Gate of the Mills. Here, in this place of rest, lies the enigma you’re searching for.
How to Solve: Your journey isn’t over yet. Venture further south, guided by the markings on your map, into the heart of Wilderness South. As you traverse this land, a Palm Grove emerges, its fronds whispering tales of old. In its center, the earth hides a secret. Dig deep, and the treasure will be yours, a relic from a time long past.
Enigma #7 – Just Rewards
Location: Make your way to the Round City, setting your course towards the Basra Gate, which stands to the southeast of the grand Palace of the Green Dome. Ascend to top of the gate where a balcony is located and an Enigma can be found.
How to Solve: Head to the Shurta Headquarters. Approach from the southeast corner, where the walls of the HQ give way to an entrance. As you step inside, a quaint courtyard is brimming with crates and supplies. One of the supply crates has the treasure we are after.
Enigma #8 – Left Behind
Location: Set course for Harbiyah and navigate to the building pinpointed on your map (and in the image and video below), just a stone’s throw south of the bustling Metal Factory. Ascent to the second floor and pull down the barrier to gain access to the room. There is a body inside and an Enigma next to it.
How to Solve: Head to Wilderness, specifically at the Abandoned Village to the north. This place lies far west of the city. As you wander through the ruins, set your sights further south, at the river bank. There, by a rustic wooden dock, you will find the treasure.
Enigma #9 – Reaping The Ruins
Location: Go deep into the Wilderness, setting your sights on the southern reaches of Jarjaraya. A lifeless body on the second floor of a a building awaits. The Enigma is laying next to the body.
How to Solve: Your journey doesn’t end in Jarjaraya. Push further into the Wilderness, making your way to its far southeastern corner. Here, a marshland stretches out, its heart marked by a lone, crumbling ruin. But it’s the swamp to the east of this relic that holds your prize. Amidst the mire and reeds, a prominent stone stands out. Dig near its base, and the treasure of the Wilderness will reveal itself.
Enigma #10 – Solve This Problem Quickly For Me
Location: Head to Karkh, where the Officer’s Club casts its imposing shadow. Just to its north, a modest building stands, seemingly unremarkable at first glance. But look up, and you’ll find your next clue perched on its roof. Not sure how to get there? No worries. To the left of the main entrance, a small breach in the wall beckons. Crawl through, and the enigma is within arm’s reach.
How to Solve: Your next destination is a place marked by time and tragedy: an unnamed, scorched village in Wilderness South. With your map as your guide, navigate to the designated spot. The center building, with its charred walls, holds more than just memories of the past. Venture to its rear, and amidst a chilling tableau of skeletal remains, the earth hides a treasure, waiting for the right explorer to unearth it.
Enigma #11 – Surrender
Location: Head deep into the Wilderness. Set your sights southwest of the Great Mosque and cross the river. As you tread the riverbanks, keep a keen eye out for a spot just to the north of the revered Tomb of Zubaydah. Here, amidst the serene sounds of nature, the enigma awaits your discovery.
How to Solve: Your quest continues in the vast expanse of the Wilderness. Navigate to the map’s farthest northern point, leading you to the village of Ukbara. But your destination lies beyond the village’s boundaries. To the north, a desolate island, scarred by time and bearing the marks of ruins, beckons. It is here, amidst the remnants of a bygone era, that the treasure reveals itself.
Enigma #12 – The Gift
Location: Set your course for Abbasiyah, navigating the intricate streets until you find yourself west of the renowned Pharmacy of Haylan and just south of the bustling Hamma. Amidst the city’s skyline, a particular building stands out. Your clue? It’s perched atop its roof, waiting for the keen-eyed explorer to ascend and claim it.
How to Solve: Your adventure doesn’t end within the city walls. Venture out, following the river’s flow as it meanders from Haylanah into the vast Wilderness. As you journey westward, a rustic wooden bridge emerges on the horizon. But it’s the south bank, just to the bridge’s east, that holds your prize. Consult your map, pinpoint the location, and the treasure of Abbasiyah will be yours.
