View Full Version : Is it just me, or is throwing a giant axe at a guard's face extremely satisfying?

I just bought a heavy weapon, and I love it.

When there's a last guard (like a brute) what better way to finish the fight than send an axe hurtling into somebody's face?

Only problem is, it can be annoying if you lose the weapon. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

I agree but its not as fun as throwing a spear at a guard going full speed on a horse

Most definitely agree. I always kill the last guard by throwing it at him. Just execute every soldier till I reach the last guy, hold square and let that axe fly. Its best when the last soldier starts running away.

I don't mind losing my weapon (I pick it up again usually), but disarming the first guard in the next fight just adds to the awesomeness that is Ezio.

Yeah, but I just think the death animation is too fast, like when you throw a spear they go too fast, they ought to go down like when you run them through from behind that's one of the already done animations no punctuation really and not well structured but I don't have time but I do question why I do say I don't have much time if I don't have much time and as to why I say this and this and this...

with spears whenever I throw it then pick it up, I can't throw it again, just spin it around on the ground

I love doing that. At one point when *SPOILER* <span class="ev_code_WHITE">escorting Edigio Troche</span> *ENDS HERE* I killed 2 seekers and an elite with my fists and when the beret guy started running away, I go like: You're not going anywhere. I pick up a spear and throw it at him. So satisfying.

it's downright amazing. lol the lance is equally as awesome though.

I have a nice 42 inch wide screen TV and one day I was out in the fields and was able to get the tip of the spear through the guards eye socket while keeping the spear intact.

It was so awesome, I made it so Ezio was standing at the guards feet looking down and I took a pic with my phone.

If I could add a speach bubble I would add "Hey! You got something in your eye." O.o

Its even better when on rooftops and your out of ammo for everything, and you use your axe to kill archers

I like the time I managed to get a spear onto a rooftop and throw it at a guy with a gun.

Was very satisfying.

Mostly use this vs. horsemen.

Also, to the guy with the problem throwing spears - can't do it mid-fight - only when the guards aren't alerted yet. Otherwise you do the spin attack, which will take down a nearby horse, or knock unmounted enemies down for a few seconds - usually long enough to stab one while they're on the ground.

I think this is one of my favorite features of the new game the distance you can hit guards from sometimes is not very realistic but sooooo satisfying.

Like being on a rooftop miles away from a guard and then picking him of with an massive axe to the head or a spear brilliant.

I also love the spinning attack one can do with the spears and it slits the throats of all the dudes around you very satisfying.
