You know how in sequence 9 how you have to assassinate the new Doge Marco Barbagio (sp) and Teodora says you can time your gun right and not be detected with the firework?

Has anyone actually managed to do this?

I've beaten this game twice, and no matter how hard I try to time the shot perfectly (And the fireworks track repeats) I'm spotted every time.

However, if you're careful, you can jump in the water, stay close to the ship, climb around to the other side, and assassinate him that way. I stayed incognito when I tried that.

I don't remember getting spotted... not sure if it's because it didn't happen or I don't remember :P

I did it on my second playthrough. It was really funny. I hired courtesans and all the guards flooded off the boat to watch two of them that walked away. I still had to keeping me blended and BAM. Shot and climbed the viewpoint and a clean dive into the water. It was quite awesome.

I didn't get noticed on one occasion using the gun - it's definitely doable.

However, the advice you get from the courtesan that you will be seen swimming out to the ship isn't true. You can swim out and climb the mast unnoticed and air assassinate this guy from the crows nest while he's giving the speech if want. You can also pull him over the side into the water, or throw knives at him from the shore - among other things.

this article covers many non-standard ways of killing marco, including an easy gun shot of marco where you cant get spotted.

Everybody should check out Ian's videos, he has posted some of the best stuff relating to this game and AC1 anywhere on the net - I've gained hours and hours of replay imitating his stunts. Check them out, I guarantee you'll be inspired to re-assassinate everyone. And yell a bit louder at Ubi for a main mission replay option.

My first playthrough, I didn't notice Paola tell me to use my pistol, I just dived into the water, came up behind the boat, took out the south facing guard, then crept up behind Marco and hidden bladed him, haha.


After that I threw down a smoke bomb and dived away, making my awesome getaway.


I thought it was more epic and assassin like than shooting him, haha.

I don't know how but I did actually do this. I hired Courtesans, waited until the guards past and stood right in front of the boat using the gun. I didn't do it right the first time but I looked up in the sky and could see the fireworks the second time.
