Help! Captain Kidd's last mission!

I'm trying to get 100% sync on this last Captain Kidd mission. I've found the clues, approach the final spot, and get attacked by three wolves. I can't use ranged weapons and everytime I do the button challenge to kill them (Never had a problem with this in the Frontier hunting) the wolves keep getting to me. No matter how many correct times I push (usaully starts with B, then either A, X, or Y) it turns red and the wolves start eating me.

Anyone else have problems with this?

You're having problems because they adjusted the timing of the button presses for that mission meaning you have to be much quicker.

If you still can't manage it try climbing a tree and air assassinating them instead.

This is one I tried probably a dozen times when I was doing it, but I finally snapped and gunned down the wolves in a fit of rage.

I might have yelled something about the mother of the people involved in the game.

Someone posted it somewhere else, but all you have to do is run into one of the piles of branches/leaves that you can hide in. The wolves will walk towards it and you just step out and execute them quickly. It works on all 3 wolves and I got it my first try.

You might air assassinate one, but after that they'll always dodge it.

I still got up in the trees though, what you want to do is get them to run around for a bit so they get separated (assuming there's only 2 now). Try to air assasinate one, then attack it and make sure you are near something climbable, if it gets to you just tap the button very fast so you don't lose much health and climb back up waiting for your life to recover. Repeat until you have killed it and then do the same for the last one.

Not the best strategy so to speak but I hope it helps, I didn't leave the mission until I did it and that's how it was.
It's safe to say that people who say there's no challenge to this game didn't do the optional objectives.

EDIT: Oh, ninja'd. That suggestion above is much better than mine, follow it instead xD.

It took me probably 20 retries, but I got it by guessing. It's near impossible to hit the button in time if you wait for the prompt. Just try B+X then B+Y then B+X. Worked for me! Definitely tested my patience, though.

Try poison darts that's what I did. For some reason they don't count as a ranged weapon. Or at least for this objective they don't, just quickly climb a tree or fallen tree and use them wisely

Indeed that's exactly what I did, I had planned to weaken them and go in for the kill but got caught fighting 1 wolf and the other 2 died. It was then I realised they had not defaulted the 'no ranged' objective

I did the same thing LOL! Fuck 100% on this. I mean it's stupid how much faster they disappear. Either do it super fast on all encounters or slower don't mix up, so no one knows what to expect!

I mainly hate it for the fact that I died so fast trying to get it whereas anywhere else I would have time to scratch my balls before pressing right button=)

That's the approach I ended up using ... a bit by accident. I just went into a haystack after getting the attention of the wolves and discovered that they don't follow you inside the haystack. They come right to the haystack but don't do anything. It makes it very easy to kill them one by one (from your hiding spot).

Another easy approach, just use the trap mines. Quickly place one once you gain control, the first wolf will go straight into it and killing it, but be sure to move away, otherwise it will hurt you, too.
Run a few steps and lure the next wolf to the bomb, and start running once it moves to your direction. Rinse and repeat, done.

Make sure you have trip mines. Thats what i did. Plant one at a time once the wolves appear (if you plant before they appear they will dissapear) Then lure them into the traps. DONE!

Poison Darts. Recommend climbing into a tree so you have a good vantage point, doesn't count as a ranged weapon

I used the poison darts as well. The QTE has to be glitched. I've never failed a QTE that many times in a row, especially when I knew it was coming.

So just because its harder it's a glitch? More than likely they intentionally made it harder there so the full sync isn't super duper easy. Either way I managed to do the QTE's so its just a matter of having better reflexes.
