What is your favorite weapon?
Which do you find most useful?

For me, my favorite weapon is the short blade. It's very fast, and it just owns when you are in combat with a lot of people.

The most useful weapon is probably the throwing knife. It's fun to 'snipe' archers on the rooftops, and yeah, it's very useful.

Don't get me wrong, the wrist blade is useful for assassinations, but if I would pick any two weapons it would be throwing knives and the short blade.

I totally agree with you, but my favorite weapon for counter kills is the Hidden Blade.

Uh... No it's not. The hidden blade is the switchblade which you assassinate people with and the short blade is a short sword.

totally agree with first post http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
although the last battles i had against a lot of enemies, i discoverd the sword was better lol, with the shortblade, i could kille them quicker but i got killed myself quicker to. And yer the hidden blade is the coolest in counterattacks, and the most efficient. So i also think the shortblade and hidden blade and throwing knives (wich are awesome,, 1 hit kills..) are coolest.. althought sometimes the sword is more efficient, but w/e..

when you got the hidden blade enabled and lock on to an enemy for a fight it changes to sword, but when allready locked onto enemy for fight, u can still change to hidden blade. you can't attack succesfully with them but you can counterattack succesfully with them, it's cewl.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

No. You can start out on any of them, really. Except maybe Dawn of Sorrow, in which case it's best if you play Aria of Sorrow first. The rest are fine, though. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Yep, you can. You can't actually attack with it, but if you "block" (i mean get in the "defensive stance" you can't block with it either) then attempt a normal counter attack, you'll counter attack with the hidden blade. It's always a kill, you never do the little kick, punch, or throw to the ground, you just stab them in the farking face.

They look really cool too. Go try it.

My favorite weapon is the throwing knives. they are quick and are the only real long range weapon.

Only flaw is the pick pocketing though i hate those thugs.

when do you get throwing knives?

when you complete assassinations and regain a rank and some equipment at a specific point you regain your trowing knives and to get some ou have to returt to Masyaf or pickpocket them from thugs (that's what the game says) if you want to see how they work, you can to it in the loading time between game and animus switched or fast travel where you like see altair in some blue endless room, u know.. there just press left button, to select short blade, and then just start pressin square (on ps3) or w/e the attack button is on the x360..

My opinion is that if you just want to ward off people really fast to make a run for it, or if you're up against few enemies that you want to dispatch with quickly, the short blade is better.

If you're surrounded by enemies with no intention to escape, and you are not in a hurry, then it's safer to use the sword. You won't be as fast but you'll be safer, they won't be able to find an opening as quickly.

I think my favorite weapons is the Sword and Assassination knife because U first can assassinate half of the guards before the others one notice that and then take the sword and finish of the rest of them with Counter-Attacks
