Question THIEF - "HELP!! I'M STUCK !!!!" - General Community Q&A Thread - Warning: Spoilers!

This is THE thread to ask for help if you are stuck and you need a hint.
As many people will be posting their random questions, please quote the question when you provide an answer.

THERE ARE SPOILERS in this thread, obviously.

PLEASE, if you can, feel free to use spoiler tags in your question AND answers. We appreciate it's a bit of hassle, but it allows us to have one thread for helping each other, instead of 100 random threads asking for help, and people looking for help can use the thread without worrying about seeing a spoiler from a place they haven't reached yet. We're hoping this will work out okay and prove a useful thread.

Enjoy!



EDIT/UPDATE
Please note, we request the use of spoiler tags. Of course... nobody HAS to use them.

Is anyone else finding that they can't drop down off ledges? I'm stuck in the 2nd chapter going through the vents because Garrett won't drop down. I also couldn't drop off the bottom of a rope arrow earlier... Any ideas?

Edit: Found it. Apparently there's a button specifically for dropping down. It's x by default.

Edit 2: Ok, now I'm *really* stuck...


Edit 3: Solved that one too. This time I had to press the 'Cancel Action' button (right mouse button), instead of the drop down button (x).

Exclamation Won't stop dashing/swooping

Every time I move in any directing I dash/swoop. I'm not pressing anything but using the stick. This makes lock picking and anything to due with the stick impossible to use. (Xbox One)

I'm having this problem too. I'm on PS4, however. Throughout the game that I've played so far, I've always pressed L2 to drop, but in these Air Ducts I have pressed every button on my controller and he will simply not drop down.

My only thought is to restart the game with Aerial Attacks enabled, but I don't really want to do that. Please someone tell me I'm just being retarded.

It's the Kinect that's doing that - had the same thing happen to me. Turn that off in the Options menu (can't remember exactly what it's called) and you'll be good to go.

Looks like this thread is working well.

THANK YOU everyone for taking the time to use spoiler tags.
Looks like there is honour among thieves after all.

Default The whisper

So, just after level 1 you've reached the clock tower, visited Basso in his office and you are just leaving when you hear a whisper. Someone is telling you that they have something for you so come closer. I've searched high and low but I can find no one. Is it a glitch or am I missing something?

Default Stuck in chapter 2

For the life of me, I can't figure out how to jump onto the meat hook to progress the story. I've tried running and jumping as well as a rope arrow.

Default Stuck at Library Towers

Hey folks, normally I don't get stuck in games, but this for some reason is stumping me. Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. My objective is to get to the center tower where the green light is, and I just dunno how to get to the upper floors of it.

Doesn't help that this game is poorly optimized and running slowly on my comp -_- makes trial and error a pain.

Default Smuggler's Map: Eel's End

I've been having no end of trouble with this map. The map shows an illustration of a rope-arrow beam and a waterfall with two buttons just north of Siren's Rest.
I've found the correct beam, as well as the waterfall, but there are no buttons anywhere. The map shows them being right around the waterfall (one actually behind it), but there's nothing there. I've searched all around the area, and I can't find a thing. Someone please help!!!
