|Loot a convoy without killing any of its guards.|
A convoy is a horse-drawn carriage that is guarded by soldiers. They come in by themselves or in pairs and when nearby, the game will notify you to attack it. They can only be found in the Frontier area. There are fixed spawn points for them, but they can also appear randomly at any daytime and weather condition. One of these convoys has a 50% spawn chance in front of the Templar Fort that is located in the south-western corner of the map. There is a harbor nearby that can be used as a fast travel station. If the convoy doesn't spawn you can travel to another map and return later. To actually loot the convoy without killing anyone you just have to use your fists instead of lethal weapons. This will knock your enemies out and not kill them. You can also use smoke bombs to stun the soldiers and finish them more quickly. Once all guards are defeated you have to interact with the back of the carriage to steal the supplies/money. If there are two of them and sometimes one will glitch and you cannot steal from it. If this happens you will need to try again later.

Think I may have screwed the pooch on this one. Can anyone confirm if you can find a convoy after you have liberated the forts?

Never mind, just got it in the epilogue. Didn't even have to do a thing. They were hit by a patriot ambush.

Basically when you find a convoy, just go at them with your fists. Not too hard to pull off. If you need to disarm someone, just remember to drop your weapon and if anyone tries to shoot you, hit them before they can, don't grab a human shield. I did it my first try, so its easy.

I just tried this and the convoy had two wagons. I knocked everyone out and looted the first wagon but it wouldn't give me the option to loot the second. I left the area and I didn't get it.
Ubisoft needs to fix the glitches already.

good way to find convoys, after sequence 5 in the frontier fast travel to the middle of the map next to the shop. work your way up to the fort on the main road there is about a 50% chance to encounter a convoy, just use your fists and loot both convoys and the achievement should be there.

Well, during a homestead mission where I was supposed to defend the miner I managed to see a enemy convoy, but when mission was over it vanished. :'[

I jumped on top of the wagon, and patriots attacked and killed all of them (I didnt touch anyone) then looted the convy and didnt get the achievement?

I've done this at least 10 times now and I haven't gotten the achievement. A couple of times I hit somebody into a tree. The last time every single one of them were still moving around and I didn't get it. I've spent a few hours in the Frontier today alone. This is getting annoying.

I've been asked a couple times and I only know of one other person that got this achievement by letting the patriots kill the redcoats, so the glitchyness of this achievement worked in our favor, but others aren't so lucky. When you're fighting, make sure you don't attack after counter, sometimes you break their necks. it's hard to explain, but you just want to punch them into submission. If their bodies aren't rolling around in the ground when you're done with them, you probably killed them. you're best bet is to follow the videos, attack from behind and put them to sleep one by one.

how do you find a convoy i cant seem to find any at all
|Comment #17 by kanndae2003|
Friday, November 09, 2012 @ 05:28:16 AM
@15 - sometimes you break their necks just by punching. you dont need to counter for that to happen
|Comment #18 by kanndae2003|
Friday, November 09, 2012 @ 05:29:56 AM
reagrdless, i still got it with breaking a neck for some reason. it was the drummer guy, i guess he not really a guard though

I also liberated all forts and still need this, still need one more convoy for the thief challenges too, any suggestions?
|Comment #20 by TrueBlade94|
Friday, November 09, 2012 @ 10:57:59 AM
Here is a good guide on how to spawn convoys...
Read comment no. 3, I take no credit for this method.
Also the best way to take them out is to, choke hold all 4 at the back, then run to the front, drop a smoke bomb and then poison dart all 3 of them. The poison doesn't kill them, it just incapacitates them. So you still get the achievement!

Does using poison darts on the guards work? Can't remember if poison darts kill or just temporarily immobilize targets...

I just got this achievement, after taking out the patriot patrol by the bridge.When i was attacking the convoy, I broke a neck, and it still counted. Guessing that its just a bug or something.

I just got this achievement by randomly running into a convoy in the middle of the frontier and beat'n em down with meh fists

@20, and more specifically, the person who posted in the thread you linked to: Awesome tips - thanks!!!! It was about 50% for me. Kept having problems where the Patriots would come in and kill them before I could finish it. Finally decided to eliminate the patrol first and THEN loot the convoy - much easier. :-)

Monday, November 19, 2012 @ 03:26:50 PM
Hmm, I have done this twice now. Sure I didn't use any weapons, and didn't kill anyone.
No achievement yet.
Anyone else having problems getting it to happen?
(BTW, I liberated all forts and still get Redcoat Convoys going by to attack.)
|Comment #28 by Schmidtkt1|
Thursday, November 22, 2012 @ 02:36:45 PM
So you can't allow the Patriots to kill them either? I didn't kill a single guard, I just let the Patriots ambush them. Does that not work?
|Comment #29 by Bazajaytee|
Saturday, November 24, 2012 @ 02:17:06 PM
The convoys continue after all forts have been liberated.
Easiest way to do this is to switch to unarmed and run in and beat them all up. Even if you snap their necks during the fights the achievement will pop.

If you liberated the forts they do still appear, however when I knocked them all? out and stole everything I didn't get the achievement, why would they make such a simple achievement and not check wether it works or not... god damn annoy

Monday, November 26, 2012 @ 06:25:55 AM
Okay I just started a new game and quickly got up to Assassin Connor, looted my first convoy and BLEEP BLOOP, I think if you liberate the forts it breaks the achievement...

Thursday, December 06, 2012 @ 02:50:49 AM
if you complete the campaign and liberate all forts can u still find convoys and where abouts
|Comment #34 by frostysnowman99|
Friday, December 07, 2012 @ 02:03:18 AM
i noticed if they squirm once you've knocked them out that means they arent dead and if they have no motion they are dead
|Comment #35 by frostysnowman99|
Friday, December 07, 2012 @ 02:06:33 AM
Heres a quick way to do it: i libertaed the top left fort and followed the path until i came across a convoy

i did it 3 times but it didnt work, i didn't kill anyone, only punchs and kicks but one of them was motionless on the ground, so I tried again and I used poison darts with 3 guards (front) and finally i got it!

When you find a convoy walk behind it without being noticed w fist n choke each guard one by one..easy as pie... They just keep walking as you take them down.. loot the chest achievement yours... Head north from middle fast travel
|Comment #40 by JimmyC0341|
Friday, December 21, 2012 @ 05:26:06 PM
I don't know what I'm doing wrong. i've done it twice unarmed and actually on my 2nd attempt I snuck behind all the guards and knocked em all out and no achievement. WTF is going on w/this game? Also do convoys only appear in spring/summer? I'm on Seq. 9 and it's winter and I'm trying to find one but cannot
|Comment #41 by astronutski|
Thursday, December 27, 2012 @ 12:16:32 PM
Haven't been able to locate any since liberating all forts. Is there any other way after completing the game, other than starting a new game?
|Comment #42 by astronutski|
Friday, December 28, 2012 @ 10:38:04 AM
to answer myself, yes you can still get convoys after all forts have been liberated, and after completing the game. I've followed #20's link and am getting phenomenal spawn rates, I just have to learn how to control my anger and stop killing them, LOL. The guards come in and get into the mix, which fouls things up, and I performed a successful punchfest once but on the last guy, the drummer, I ended up kicking him into the rock :/ So, after at least 20 tries, no joy yet.

I got this after my second try. I don't know why I didn't get it the first time. I used smokebombs which was very helpful. I even snapped a neck. I'm currently in sequence 9 and all forts have been taken. The convoy spawned in Troy's wood.

I found a way to make convoys spawn in the frontier during the post campaign. If you fast travel to the harbour in the frontier and then head west towards the fort in the SW a convoy will spawn on the road near the fort. Worked 2 out of three attempts.

Been running around the frontier for an hour and no convoys appear. What the actual fuck?

Been having a hell of time trying to get convoys to appear post game (Prince of Thieves cheevo). I came across this by accident, if its been said already then I've missed it and apologize.
On the Frontier map in the southern fast travel (bottom middel of map), RUN (do not use horse) East past the general store and follow the road that travels slightly North East. Stay on the main road while running until you come to a Y-intersection. From this intersection continue East (right) from Y-intersection running until you get to the farm. At the farm turn left past the first tree (North) so your jumping the fence and running through the field. Continue North ever so slightly North West to avoid a couple of spruce trees. Continue running till you get to the road and rock hill at this point prio

It's simple, just find a convoy and select unarmed (fist icon) and knockout all guards then loot the convoy(s) and walla!
