Assassin's Creed Mirage Merchant Tokens are one of three token currencies that can unlock benefits and opportunities from different NPCs. Merchant Tokens, specifically, can bring Trader prices down but also become pretty important later on in Assassin's Creed Mirage story missions. You might find that characters can be bribed with a Merchant Token or two in exchange for useful information or crucial items, like door keys. If you're running short on these green Merchant Tokens, here's how you can get more while exploring Baghdad.

While you can get Merchant Tokens as rewards for some Assassin's Creed Mirage missions and contracts, the easiest way to get stocked up on them is by going around pickpocketing. You'll soon discover that among the treasures and the coin, your average Baghdad citizen also has a token or two in their pouches. As our Assassin's Creed Mirage tips say, doing a bit of pickpocketing between missions can be really useful for getting the odd token.

If you use your Eagle Vision in any crowded space, you'll see that anyone with a snatchable coin purse hanging from their belt will be highlighted - or their coin purse will be specifically.

There are actually two levels of coin purse - gold and silver. Silver will just have a few coins inside, whereas the gold ones will often have a token of some kind alongside a treasure that you can sell. If you aim for these, you'll quickly top up your stock of Merchant Tokens in Assassin's Creed Mirage.

Plus, if you unlock the Pickpocket Master skill - one of the best Assassin's Creed Mirage Skills for Basim - you can make thieving a lot easier for yourself and nab yourself more Merchant Tokens a lot quicker. It actually gives you a wider time window for you to correctly press the pickpocket button, which for the harder grabs is usually incredibly thin.
