Hey Guys,

Bit like this thread (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/5251069024/m/1671019387/p/1),

I was just wanted to know your thoughts on the new Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Weapons Wheel:

http://i635.photobucket.com/albums/uu71/JulzioPico51/AssassinsCreedBrotherhoodWeaponsWheel.jpg?t=128221 7930
(So, the numbers going clockwise are... Gun - 5, Crossbow - 15, Sword/Gun - 5, Dagger/Knives - 10, Knives - 10, Bombs - 3, Medicine - 8, Poison Blade Symbol - 5, in case you can't see them clearly)


From what we can see we have (Bold is new)...

The Two Blades
The Hidden Gun
The Crossbow - Which seems to be able to carry at least 15 arrows
The Sword - with the gun symbol in the corner - This obviosly works with the gun combos. At least we know we can run out of the ammo while doing this, so we don't have unlimited with the combos (i said this because someone was wondering about it in another thread!)
The Dagger - with the throwing knives symbol in the corner - Again, we will probably use them during battle, obviously for long ranged shots, but maybe also stringed in Combos.
Throwing Knives - So we can use them by themselves. This might mean you can only use the knives with the dagger during battle.
Fists
Money - Good to see this is back, because a lot of people thought this was good
Smoke Bombs
Medicine - Hopefully it doesn't heal as much this time...
and the Poison Blade - with unknown symbol in corner - This is probably the poison darts, from what it looks like (i will update the post once it's confirmed), and the number might also represent the number of vials left, seeing as you would need the vials to poison the darts.



So as i said, what are your thought?

Do you Rate it? Hate it? (haha), but seriously, what do you think?



I personally like it, especially the new weapons which seem pretty cool! And there are a couple of gaps too, which could possibly hold other weapons like the Heavy Weapons which have been confirmed to be able to be kept/bought!


EDIT: Picture Fixed!

There is only one weapon thats different thats the crossbow i hope there will be more than that. Otherwise all the other slotts were already there.

Wow good job.
I really like the ideas of the combos, the dagger with throwing knives and sword with gun.
But what I was wondering is this, what makes the crossbow better/different (besides the looks) than the Hidden Gun. Because from what I've seen it's basicaly thesame.
Or don't you need as much time to aim with the Crossbow than with the Hidden Gun?

Anyone info about this?

I really couldn't give a crap about the weapons wheel, just aslong as they offer enough key bindings for all the weapons on the PC version.

I've never used it on either console so I can't speak on their behalf http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Dagger+Throwing knives.

On the consoles you only have to press your left Trigger (L2) to open it and then select your weapon with the stick, so that's really easy :P

Its is not an essential to the game on the console Robson. However its just the way that it has not been eddited much i expected loads of slots for different types of weapons but there is only one different slot too AC2.

According to this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmS9sPRbYFk), the crossbow is "the most powerful weapon at long range", which makes sense, since the guns of those days were pretty horrible in long range, I assume.
Also, if you watched the video, it looks like the aiming lines converge much faster than with the hidden gun, almost instantly. We'll see, I guess.

EA51,
Could you give me a link to the video or picture...

I could always do with some exiting gameplay footage even if it is 5 seconds long...

yeah, i think the crossbow is just to replace the hidden gun, the guns only real use now is as a combo with the sword, but they couldn't just have it used with the sword without it being used on its own.

@SDD,
what i ment was like

if your out of crossbow's
and only have gun bullets left.
used all your brotherhood points
and non other ranged weapon if i get into close coombat,
i'd like to that the choice of saving that ammonition rather then letting the gameplay macanics automaticly use it if i decide to go with the sword

in short or dumbed down :
i hope you can decide to wether to just use the sword without the ranged weapons

Actually, it's Rb (Location of R1 for PlayStation-people) to open the circle on Xbox.

Oh, my bad. But for the PlayStation I'm quite sure it's either L1 or L2.

Dayum he's a walking armory.

Looks like there is missing icon on the left corner. Perhaps it's being reserved for Triple hidden blades.http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I'm a bit disappointed that the crossbow is the only new item. Hopefully that blank spot'll get something good in it - Piece of Eden, please?

You can equip a Brute's axe.

Let me just climb up this wall effortlessly with something that I have to use two hands to simply carry... not that it's big and cumbersome or ANYTHING...

I think that the developers have taken the mindset of "hell yes" over "plausible", especially considering middle-aged Ezio is doing flips he couldn't do at seventeen.

That's one thing I didn't like about AC2...I just couldn't see why Ezio couldn't just strap that little Axe to his back to climb. another reason to get excited for AC:B!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Aside from the apparently faster aiming, it also seems to be much quieter. No loud *BANG* to alert everyone in the city. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

There must have been some way to suppress it then. Maybe they had something like a silencer, and just used that as the barrel instead of the one from AC2.

Just to let you guys know that the little thing in the corner of the poison knife is a Poison Dart all you have to is hold the the button (Or Key depending if your using a PC) until the line straights out completely and it shoots a far- ranged poison dart.
