Thread: How does the Hidden Blade's mechanism work? | Forums

  1. #1

    How does the Hidden Blade's mechanism work?

    In one of the novels it says that the Hidden Blade is unleashed via a button being pushed by flexing a certain muscle on the forearm, but the novels aren't exactly the same as the games. Also, various sources have shown the hidden blade to be extracted by a ring on the finger being pulled, but we never see this mechanism in the games. So, how does the mechanism of the Hidden Blade we see in the games work?

    It is really never revealed. Best way too describe is ''invisible mechanism''
    Quite honestly, I just think Assassin's are so badass they flick the blade by their mind power.

    There isn't a visible mechanism. It is probably supposed to be a ring.

    I choose to believe the ring explanation. You can't see it on the in-game models but it's in the concept art and it makes the most sense. Someone even made a working hidden blade using the ring method on youtube.

    But none of them have a ring on /:
    Maybe a certain part of the bracer gets pushed when they flick their wrist?

    i'd go with what the novel says,

    though the whole concept doesnt really work in reality, it's what appears to happen in the games

    It could possibly be true. When they flick the wrist, a certain muscle hits a ''trigger'' and the blade extends.

    Possible but way to complicate to make and not 100% working case.Ring mechanic is more reliable.

    True, ring is easier, but we do not see it on the characters. Altair had his finger chopped off -___-
