There are 42 cultists in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Killing all cultists and overthrowing the cult will unlock the “The Cult Unmasked” trophy or achievement. This guide shows you where to find all the cultists.
The Cult Unmasked
Defeat all the Cultists of Kosmos.
The cultist menu is automatically unlocked in Sequence 3. By then you will have already killed two of them automatically through the progress of the story. It is recommended to first finish the main story (all 9 episodes) and then hunt down the missing cultists.
The reason is that you can kill some of them only after the story.
References to cultists are explained
Normally you would have to kill a cultist to get a clue where to find the next one. The cultist menu will show you the hints for each one. The hints are different, they can also refer to side quests or you can find cultists in certain regions through conquest struggles. This guide shows you all the cultists and their location! The cultists who are tied to side quests are the only exception, for these NPCs you must first play the associated quest. The inner-circle cultists can only be revealed after everyone else in thebranch has been killed. After killing 41 cultists, the spirit of the cosmos leader is revealed.
