"He waited beyond the iron walls, using anyone foolish enough to peer over the ramparts as target practice."


  • Kill 10 guards without entering Durthang
  • Bonus: Set 5 Uruks on fire


  • Staying within the mission zone is crucial. You will have to pick off your enemies from afar with your bow.
  • You may not have a shot at some guards. Use Distract (Y or Triangle in ranged mode) to maneuver the Uruks to where you can shoot them.
  • Destroy barrels or barricades to kill or open up LOS. Barrels or fires must be used if you are trying to achieve the bonus.
  • Bringing down the hanging bait will attract caragors and will help allow you to kill enemies while staying within the designated zone. If a caragor kills a guard, it counts toward the total.
