View Full Version : Is the pistol actually confirmed somewhere?

Let's all think back pre-AC1, think back to that first CGI trailer with Altair, him pushing through a crowd heading towards some gallows. From his back he pulls a crossbow and WHA-BAM shoots a guy or two.

Now let's think back to now, after AC-1.
As we all know that crossbow idea was scraped (and presumably was replaced with the throwing knives).

So I'm getting a little fishy feeling about this pistol business. Has it actually been confirmed somewhere else besides the video.

Because as seen in the first case, videos can't actually confirm things,
=P


(I'm just wondering this, sorry if this is somehow "spam")

It has been confirmed, at least they said they're working on the aiming mechanism right now to make it more interesting and fun as opposed to the 'lock-and-throw' of the throwing knives in AC1.

I think the pistol will be used as a high-priority ranged weapon. Makes noise, moves fast, does damage.
For your low-priority ranged attacks use the throwing knives. Silent and slow.

Yeah, because people screaming and shouting "ASSASSIN!" after you kill your target with the hidden blade doesn't make any sound

Patrice has confirmed the Hidden Gun http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
(But we can't be too sure you know, they might remove it at the last second)

@Sypron
The hidden gun has replaced the throwing knives.

The figuring of Ezio has 15 throwing knives, positioned in similar pouches to Altair's ones.
I understand this isn't definitive evidence, as it is possible the figuring was based off an early sketch for Ezio that was later changed. But remember, the game is due to have lots of variety and lots of weapons. I think its possible that the player will be given the choice.

maybe you can upgrade Ezio to have a more silient gun so it'll be sound effisent(sp?)

I believe we will start out with throwing knives. And then we upgrade to the pistol. But my argument with that idea is the fact that the gun would produce too much noise. Thus the guards would come to investigate. That is why I am a firm believer that you will have Throwing Knives at all times. The Hidden Gun would also take to long to reload while the Throwing Knives would be pulled out in a jiffy.

When someone says somthing is replacing it, that doesn't mean that it would be gone altogether.

Possible, but there's more probability its gone >_<

I loved the knives too, and can't see the sense in a firearm. I'm just going on what Patrice said.

They will probably either remove the throwing knives, not make them part of your equipment (more like a pick-able) OR lower it's damage (less probably in my opinion, because you would have to throw another one, not a big deal)

Anyways, it has been confirmed.

Anyways, it has been confirmed. I think that there's no need for throwing knives,the gun would be fine.
