Pyromaniac Achievement in Assassin's Creed Origins

  • Pyromaniac



    Kill a Mummy by setting it on fire (The Curse of the Pharaohs)

    How to unlock Pyromaniac

    The trickiest part about this achievement is actually finding a mummy, since it's not obvious which enemies are mummies. They are the big brutish enemies that appear only in the Afterlife regions, and they typically have large blunt weapons they swing at you.

    To unlock this achievement, you have to make sure that fire kills one of these mummies. There are a few ways to do this:

    • Use the epic sword you get from the main game that is always in fire
    • Use the epic bow (Smoke and Mirrors) from the main game whose arrows are always on fire
    • Shoot clay pots near a mummy to set it on fire

    I tried attacking a mummy with my torch, and I swear it died from fire damage but the achievement didn't unlock.

    Regardless of which method you use, you must make sure that the mummy dies from burn damage, not from weapon damage. So damage the mummy continually down to low health and then let the fire finish him off. Alternatively, if he's near something flammable, you can try throwing a torch near him to set the environment on fire and he'll catch fire too, finishing him off.

  • Mummies are found in the afterlife sections, the earliest of which being Aaru. All you have to do is kill one by burning inflicted by a weapon or the environment like an oil pot. There are a number of mummies located throughout every afterlife section, so the location shown in the video is only for reference. Here is a video guide with English commentary! Here is a playlist of guides!
  • Easy. Go to Aaru (Nefertiti's Duat) and at the top left of the map is an outpost called 'Lodge of Names'. I found 2 'mummies' walking about (big burly dudes) - switch to Easy mode, pull out your Fire Bombs and go to town.
