    AC3 - Fighting the Jagers

    Anyone got any tips on fighting multiple Jagers?

    Ive noticed if youre 2 cross or higher notoriety and have a big brawl in New York they turn up in twos and threes. Ive managed to take out 2 or 3 of them but anymore is just too hard, especially as more regular troops will always turn up and get in the way. Anyone got tips on getting the better of these bad boys?

    As every enemy in the game, once you figure out what you can and cannot do to them, they are stupidly easy.
    You can't combo kill them, simply attack them nor break their defense and it takes two arrows to kill them.
    What you CAN do to them is:
    - shoot them
    - counter-disarm and kill them
    - rope-dart them and finish them when they are on the ground
    - counter kill when two enemies, at least one of which is a Jager, are attacking you

    They are really easy to kill once you know that. If you don't have any other enemies to attack while waiting to disarm the Jagers, simply rope dart them, using it in combat doesn't remove them from your inventory as long as it is not a counter kill or a double combo kill.

    firstly keep your distance the best way to defeat jaegers is look out for their attack , as soon as the attack counter them but instead of going in for the kill disarm them instead I don't know what console your using but on Xbox it's b for counter then a straight after to disarm them then go in for the attack , a note the jaegers only appear when your notoriety is full up

    Use trip mines to counter their attacks. Enjoy your Jagerbomb.

    What I usually do is either disarm and swing to kill or have either gun, rope darts or snares equipped and just use the counter kill with secondary, not with primary. So if on xbox it would be 'B' to go into that slow mo counter and instead of pressing 'X' press 'Y' to use secondary weapon counter kill.

    You can use the animal trap in counter to choke them to death.

    Animal SNARES . Counter then triangle on ps3 ( Y button on X360) . IT Strangles them .

    Counter + BOW - instant kill & can retrieve arrows once their all dead.

    Just play around with the secondary weapons. Break defence before attacking head on.

    Just counter, disarm/ break defense and mash attack or use a snare/trip mine/ rope dart. Its not hard.
