Beat up the 5 thirsty harlequins.

Note: Sometimes they won't appear so run away and come back. Or use a Tunnel to travel away and then back. Also, if they die by some means other than your fists, do the same thing as above because they respawn.

You have to beat up (you must use your fists) five thirsty Harlequins. You will know if it counted because it says "X of 5 Harlequins beaten up." They are near the water, hence the thirsty part, so look along the river. Four are in Centro District and one is in Campagna District.

I. The First Harlequin is in Centro District North and a bit west beside the river. He is between the Highest Doctor symbol on the map and the second Highest Tunnel Entrance. He is on some stairs going into the water.

II. The Second Harlequin is in Centro District North West beside the river again. He is to the East of the Bridge that goes to Vanticao District. Starting from the beginning of the bridge, if you use your map and go along the river East you will see a shaded area with a lighter circle in the middle. Go North of that circle and you will see a set of double stairs. He is on those stairs.

III. The Third Harlequin is in Centro District West beside the river. Go to ROSA IN FIORE and go directly west from there. He is on a set of stairs again.

IV. The Fourth Harlequin is in Centro District South East under a bridge beside the river. Go to Ezio's Hideout and go DIRECTLY south of it. On your map you should see a Bridge that has lines going across it. He is under that bridge on the left side.

V. The Fifth and Last Harlequin is in Campagna District beside the Borgia Tower (Or Assassin's Tower) that is surrounded by water and cliffs. If you use your map and go West slightly from the Borgia/Assassin's Tower and then go slightly North, you will see a small rectangle that represents a small building. Go there and the Harlequin is behind the Small building along the edge of the cliff.

The harlequins will come at you and want to fight. Switch to your fists and beat them up. A notification will come up saying how many out of the five you have beaten up. I killed my first harlequin on accident haha

Comment #7 by Tilb Town Rufus
Tuesday, March 08, 2011 @ 07:07:49 PM

I have found one so far, he was a few clicks east of the bridge that leads to the Vaticano district, in an area where on the map there's (as best as I can describe it) a roundabout in the middle of it, northwest of the Sant' Antonio dei Portoghesi. As to the location of the others? I haven't the slightest clue.

From what I've found 4 of the Harlequin's are in the centro district near the river on the west side of the map (1 is under a bridge near Ezio's hideout that was a pain to find) just stick to following the river and you should find those 4, I would start at the very northern-most part of the river and make my way down. The last one is in the Campagna district near a house overlooking a Borgia tower on an island, a little bit east of the Barracks. This is where they all were for me, I'm not sure if spots are random or not (I seriously doubt it).
Hope this was helpful!

the fifth Harlequin only comes out at night time.
there will be a couple standing by the tree on the edge of the cliff, the
Harlequin will appear next to them.

If he doesn't appear you'll have to go further away and come back for the NPC's to reload.
there's probably a video for this achievement on youtube by now.

what do you do after you've beaten up all five and the achievement doesn't unlock? after i found the fifth and beat him up, my screen read "5 of 5 harlequins beaten up", but the achievement is still locked. i've returned to the five locations, but none are there. i've checked each spot at least 3 times now, both day and night - no harlequins. any ideas?? i'm frustrated...

Im starting to think this achievement is bugged.
I've got 4/5, the last one I need is under a bridge near the hideout.
I accidentally killed him the first time, but he won't respawn.
Another one I killed respawned no problem.
But this one WILL NOT! and it's PISSING ME RIGHT OFF!

Then I realized that killing then is not equivalent to beating them up. :-X

Saturday, June 18, 2011 @ 11:02:16 PM

Here's some useful tips. When you're near the clowns get them to attach you and then start walking away from the hazards they WILL follow you. Then taunt them. This makes them come after you and you can press X which will cause a counter attack and since you are using your hands it wont kill them. Finnaly, if they don't show up go around a building or sometimes doing a 360 will make them spawn. Hope this helps!

Thursday, July 07, 2011 @ 11:41:57 AM

surprisingly, doing a 360 works..

I only needed to beat up the harlequin in campagna (near to Borgia/Assassin tower).

I had killed him before and since then he hadnt shown.

It turned to night, the couple showed up but no harlequin, i ran 10m, 360 and the harlequin was doing his tricks, beat him up, 30G.

I haven't beaten the DLC yet, as i just got it, but figured I'd kill time by
getting this achievement, is there a certain point when they show up, or are
they there right from the start?

just got the achievement, i kill the last harlequin by accident, then it turn night, the person under the tree is there but the harlequin is not, so i run about 10 m do a 360 and the harlequin shows up and 30g is added to my g points, so yea, #49 trick works. Poor harlequin though, he and the hellequin is my fav character

Comment #64 by Ramen92
Wednesday, March 07, 2012 @ 09:24:05 PM

So Easiest way to do this (and yes this is cheap) is to walk up to them throw your smoke bomb down and punch them. This will lead to a one hit knock out.

Also they will respawn after you throw them in the water, and if they dont show up just walk around and eventually they respawn

Comment #65 by esoterikos
Friday, March 09, 2012 @ 05:58:59 PM

I know this is late for most people, but if you can't find a harlequin, just throw money around where they should be. They run for it the same as everyone else, but they're dressed as Harly Quinn.

None of them have to be done at night. I did all of mine in the day time. Some people may have the same problem I did with the last one. He isnt actually on the island with the Assassin tower. He is across the river, on a cliff, standing by a small building. He isn't really even close to the water.

I found the easiest way to beat up the harlequins is to just counter them, so hold RT and press X when they attack :) avoids knocking them into the water etc by accident, just make sure you press down on the D-Pad first so you have your fists 'equipped.'

Comment #72 by Jnutter819

Not sure if anyone still is trying to get this achievement, but I was also having an issue with a missing harlequin. I tried lingering in the area, running across Rome and back, and even quitting the game and then returning but he still wasn't showing up. For those of you who played the original Assassin's Creed, you may have dealt with a missing Templar glitch which I also had, so I did the same fix for that as I did for this; Clearing the system cache. He showed up within a few seconds of me arriving at the spot where he was supposed to be.

Hope this helps anyone. :)

Sunday, March 16, 2014 @ 09:18:48 PM

My dearest goodness. Couldn't find the one near the bridge and the one near the house. I first killed the one near the house by accident. I found out this one shows up during day time (for me, at least), so I went to the bridge, no harlequin there. I read your comments and I turned around a couple of times (360 degrees), tossed some money around and low and behold: the guy appeared! Then I went back the house and waited for day time with my back at the spot, twirled around a couple of times, tossed some money around (the couple was delighted, of course)... bastard popped up!

Hope this helps those in need :)
