Assassin’s Creed Mirage truly values its stealth gameplay. Thus, players are governed by certain creative limitations that they need to consider when playing this game. One of them comes in the form of a pretty detailed Notoriety System.

You will need to keep track of your notoriety, as it will greatly affect the difficulty you will have to deal with. So, if you don’t know anything about the Notoriety system in Assassin’s Creed Mirage, here’s what you need to know.

How to decrease Notoriety in Assassin’s Creed Mirage?

There are two major methods for lowering your Notoriety in Assassin’s Creed Mirage:

  • Removing Wanted Posters: You can remove three wanted posters displayed on the city walls. But they are pretty hard to find, and if you are at level 3 notoriety, then a lot of people will be looking directly at your wanted posters, and removing them will alert the guards, and you will get attacked. Plus, the posters won’t show up on your map.
  • Munadi Services: You can find Munadi, who are the town criers, and bride them with Power Tokens. This will decrease your notoriety. To get these particular tokens, you will need to complete Soldier Contracts.

It is clear that using the Munadi Services is much faster, but Power Tokens are hard to get, so keep that in mind.

How does the Notoriety system work?

In simple terms, the Notoriety system is a feature in AC Mirage that dictates how NPCs react when they see and interact with Basim. Your notoriety will increase if you keep on eliminating innocent NPCs or just keep on fighting a large number of guards out in the open when it’s not necessary or getting caught pickpocketing.

You can see the notoriety bar turning red at the bottom right when your notoriety increases. You can use this bar to track your notoriety. It’s like a wanted-level system, and there are three levels of notoriety.

When you reach the first level, the civilians may snitch you out. At level 2, the archers, guards, and civilians will be able to easily recognize you, and you will get attacked. And if you reach level 3 notoriety, the elite soldier will relentlessly chase you till you drop dead. You won’t be able to freely roam.

Your notoriety will increase or decrease depending on your actions. This way, the game creates a particular play style that players will have to adopt. Although taking away some amount of freedom from players may sound like a negative trait, in reality, this just makes the game more engaging, immersive, and focused.
