Assassin's Creed Brotherhood: The Da Vinci Disappearance - Decoding Da Vinci guide

Maybe you're easily frustrated by puzzles, or maybe you're just irritated by the idea that ab add-on for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood would waylay your slashy-sneaky progress with a bunch of hidden-object silliness.

Whatever the hypothetical reasons, you might be able to use a little help with Decoding Da Vinci, the second-to-last mission of The Da Vinci Disappearance DLC. Unlike the rest of the expansion, it tasks you not with stabbing dudes or sneaking around on the rooftops, but with finding a bunch of hidden drawings that Leonardo Da Vinci left in his paintings, and then assembling those drawings into a map.

If you'd rather power through Activity Time With Ezio and cut straight to the endgame, look below for quick solutions to every puzzle you'll face. Just don't blame us when the experience is over that much more quickly.

The Adoration of the Magi

Two more pieces are lurking here, and given the painting's size, this might be the toughest one to search:

St. Jerome in the Wilderness

The final two are hiding here:

The map puzzle

When you've finally discovered all the puzzle pieces, you'll have to assemble them into a map - which should look like this:
