If you take a moment to wander off the beaten path, there are achievements to tick off as you work your way through yet another gripping story from Asobo Studios. They’re deliberately challenging to find, though. So, if you’re a completionist and wondering how to spare the soldier at the docks in A Plague Tale Requiem, here’s what you need to know.
How to Get the Mercy Trophy & Achievement in A Plague Tale Requiem
Towards the end of Chapter 4, you’ll find yourself trying to escape a dock with the help of a local guard. Your path, however, is blocked by other soldiers less sympathetic to your cause.
To sneak past their watchful eye, take Lucas’ suggestion and use the tar to distract and blind the guard blocking your path.
If you don’t, know that using any other method to take him out will extinguish his torch and cause him to be eaten by the swarm of rats that have gathered nearby.
Once he’s blinded, run past him, using an Ignifer pot for extra space from the rats swarming on either side if you need to. So long as you exit the area without attacking the guard, you’ll earn the trophy/achievement with ease.
That should give you everything you need to know about how to spare the soldier at the docks in A Plague Tale Requiem. For more useful tips and guides on the game, search Twinfinite or check out some of the related content listed below.
