Not throwing, but more like thrusting a spear all the way in his spine http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

So, yes, it is.
And a very nice one that is :P

I think I know the move you mean. your description reminded me of a move in the Gameplay trailer where Ezio had a spear and he was fighting a seeker who was also carrying a spear, and it looks like Ezio counters him and throws the spear into the seeker's face. I'm gonna give it a go and I'll come back and post whether I can do it or not.

I prefer the one I got countering an Agile. Ezio shoved the spear halfway through his torso and pushed him over, so he was dangling backwards in the air held up by the spear in the ground. It looked nasty http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

He wasnt doing it against a brute, unless the brute was using a spear. in order to throw the spear, you have to counter a spear wielding enemy.

spot on, the only way to throw a spear into an enemys face is to counter them while they are attacking with a spear, it doesnt matter what type of guard as long as they have a spear

what conditions are needed for Ezio to do the rapid stabbing counter attack with his 2 hidden blades? I've only managed to do it like 3 times, and haven't noticed a consistency

for me it seam to work if you use the hidden blades against a untargeted enemy thats in combat but stunned by a smokebomb.

personally my favourite is the one when your facing a unaware guard with a drawn small blade and "attack" when your standing close enough.

Are you sure about that?
Couse when i do it, its usually on a brute thats blocking my rain of hidden blade attacks untill suddenly Ezio moves in and stabs him 4-5 times in the chest

donīt know, when I meet brutes I either smoke bomb and do a normal stealth kill or go bare hand so I can counter grab his 2 hands weapon and do a kill move, when I use hidden blades in combat I usually get the blades threw the head kill or the stab in the belly, stab in the back to the ground kill.

Theres no specific conditions i know, its a COMBO. NOT A COUNTER. you have to time the attacks right, and it will do a combo. ezio will either jump on them, slit their throat, or stab their chest rapidly. though, from what ive seen, this is easier to do on mace wielding enemies and brutes.

You mean how it usually only happens against low health enemies? this isnt entirely true if thats what you mean, if you keep the pressure on a brute it will happen much before he gets past half health. your timing has to be extremely precise however.

But, yeah, ive never been able to do it on a enemy thats NOT a brute without it being on low health.

I've found that a very easy way to perform the rapid stabbing is to first punch an enemy of any health level who isn't aware of your presence and then to quickly switch to hidden blades and asassinate the guard of your choice!

Or disarm a guard and then switch to hidden blades, and bam, you'll do one of the combo's.

Or, throw sand in their eyes and then switch to the hidden blades. Same thing happens as above.
