So, I was playing AC2 like always and I got into some combat with a seeker and some guards. I had my sword equipped, and was about to dodge his attack when Ezio stepped on the Seeker's foot and broke his spear in half. The Seeker continued to attack me with the spiked end of the spear, swinging it like a sword.

I don't know how I did this, and I don't know what I saw. I'm completely uncertain if I stepped on his foot or not, but that's what I think happened. I do know that I hit A right when he attacked me, but I don't know if I was holding R down or not.

If anyone else has had this happen to them, post here, and tell me how to do it. It was almost more effective than trying to time a disarm.

the spear can break while you're deflecting attacks. It can also break while countering, and if it does you end up sticking the guard with both parts of the spear...

I assume it works the same way while the guard is using it, if he blocks your attack it has a chance to be broken or whatever.

Spears can be broken. Watch the Launch Trailer...shows Ezio using a spear against a Brute and the Brute breaks it in half with his axe and Ezio plunges the spiked end in him as a Counter.

Yes, but the question is how can Ezio break SOMEONE ELSE'S spear? I haven't been able to do this. Perhaps it's a bug? Sputnik_DX091, did you have your own PERSONAL sword (i.e. Schiavona, Florentine Falchion, etc.) or was it a longsword that you stole from a brute?

It's imaginable since it can be done the other way around. The video is only proof that spears are breakable. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Also I have been able to do so while hacking away, but don't recall the guard coming back at me with the spear, for me he just dropped it and picked up a sword on the ground from a previous downed guard. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

Well tell me if you can do it. I personally doubt it; just because we can do finishing moves doesn't mean the guards can. =P

I've broken the guard's spear before.

When I read the title of this thread, for a second, I thought it said Britney Spears... o_O
