Understanding how to eavesdrop in Assassin's Creed Mirage is crucial, appearing a few times in missions and requiring you find a hiding spot to listen in on people. This can reveal certain opportunities or progress an Assassin's Creed Mirage mission. However, while listening in on a conversation sounds easy the game wants you to do it a specific way and, if you don't know how to do it, you can get stuck. So get Basim perched on a bench and learn how to eavesdrop in Assassin's Creed Mirage with my guide.

How to eavesdrop in Assassin's Creed Mirage

To eavesdrop in Assassin's Creed Mirage you simply need to use the nearest hiding spot to the conversation you're trying to listen in on, and then press in the right stick on your controller to lock onto the conversation and hear what's being said. Simply hiding around a corner or anywhere out of sight won't work. You also need to make sure you stay hidden in your chosen spot for the duration of the conversation.

You can use any valid hiding spot just so long as it's within the audio waveform ring that sometimes appears around the people having the conversation. In some cases, it could be a hay bale or something like that, but I often found benches were the most commonly available blending in object available. 

Usually, there's often only one hiding spot nearby as well, so the choice should be fairly obvious - use Eagle Vision to highlight any hiding spots in your vicinity if nothing is immediately obvious. And, sometimes the people you're eavesdropping on speak carelessly and loudly, so you might not need to be as close as you think.
