    WWI Helix Glitch

    There's one glitch in WWI i can't get to no matter what I do, on videoes on youtube they drop from the inside of the bridge and down on it and land in the haystack, when I try it, I miss the glitch and land next to the haystack, so I tried climbing both sides of the open bridge to see if I could zipline across, but no, couldn't do that either and jump from there and into the water is still a miss, so what do I do?

    it's this one to be excact:

    this is not a bug, its by design, the way to get this helix glitch is by using a zipline from the boat to the bridge and when you get on top of it, you do leap of faith.

    if you have HBAO+ Ultra, set it to HBAO+, if not then turn your graphics settings to lowest, complete that part then restore them back.

    Too hard!

    I'm sorry, but this glitch needs to be made easier.

    I've played games that require specific placement and timing to acquire something before, but never something this rediculous. You literally have to get millimeter-precise placement and millisecond-precise timing. That just isn't possible for most people. It is so rediculous, that I am more inclined to believe that thosee people that have successfully got it are the ones experiencing the glitch/bug/random confluence of whatever, and the rest of us are the ones seeing what is actually there.

    Unless there is some grand trick that we are all missing. In which case, please, enlighten us Ubisoft! (And before anyone mentions them: I have tried both suggested methods [zipline and hang/drop] so many times I am about to defenestrate my PC - if I am lucky I will hit the hay 1 time in 20, and I have never hit the helix glitch [obviously, or I wouldn't be here].)

    Same here, at the blimp part,

    I believe it has to do with the background when facing that direction.

    What I did was, face the camera in reverse and jump while facing the building and not the open space. The reason I think it's the background because even other locations in the map, when i look in that direction, it may crash.

    Iused a zipline from the boat to the bridge. From where do you have todo the leap of faith? I tried but I simply miss the helix.

    It's impossible!!!

    Come on! I've been at this for 2 and a half hours! The helix glitch under the bridge in Assassin's Creed Syndicate WWI is impossible to get. I've done everything the internet said I should do, and nothing has worked. I even stood on the raised bridge road to see it's placement and I've conceded that there's nowhere I can go to reach this glitch. It's ruining my gameplay, and that's extremely hard to do when you're a life long AC lover like me. Never in gaming have you been this frustrated, never!. Fix this Ubisoft!! What can I do to get this glitch!?

    Have you tried performing the 'rope launcher + leap of faith' combo? It's the same trick that is required to get 100% sync in Evie's mission "Room with a View" during Sequence 5.

    Climb to the topmost bridges with the anti-aircraft turrets. I stood on the left bridge and aimed the rope launcher at the right bridge (aim the reticule so that it's positioned above the helix glitch). When you're about halfway across the zipline press the buttons that you usually use to freerun down (aka controlled descent or parkour down). Doing so should perform a leap of faith which should give just enough of an arch to reach the collectible. You might have to adjust your position on the bridge - maybe aim the launcher from a slightly adjacent position - and see what timing works for you. Depending on where you launch the zipline you need to perform the leap of faith before you're halfway to the other bridge, right in the middle, or a bit after that.

    I've tried standing on both bridges. But I can't use the rope launcher. I'm playing on pc. It's the only thing I have to do to get 100%. Freerun down doesn't work either.
