Okay, I admit upfront that I'm a dufus when it comes to gameplay, so feel free to lay on the barbs and snide remarks -- I won't take offense if they're funny. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

What's the secret to tackling? Somehow I missed the decoder ring for this, or it won't fit my, apparently, fat fingers.

I'm on the xbox and know you use the 'B' button, but do I tap it or press/hold it?

Do I do so when a pace or two behind the target, as I bump into them, or what?

Everytime I have to do the Fox mission where you have to chase his pick-pocketing goon, it's a major exercise in frustration. Eventually, after who knows how many trips through the city, I eventually tackle him, but it's pure luck and I've no idea how.

It'd be nice to actually be able to tackle the courier bugger, and not have to resort to killing him or knocking him off of a roof -- aargh!

BTW, did I mention it's frustrating? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

Well, thanks. I've done (do) that, but most of the time it doesn't work. So, when it does work, I've no idea why it did that time when it didn't the previous [insert any number here] times.

It's kind of hard to practice or get the hang of something when I don't know the parameters ...

In my experience tackling always works if you double tap the B button. I had trouble with tackling at first when I tried the double tap method it worked.

Well, it's probably your fat fingers.

Just joking.

If none of what the people said above me works, you might need a new controller.

Or it could just be your fat fingers. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I know one thing that really helps is as soon as I start chasing them, I target them. That way I don't accidently tackle the wrong person (like a guard or civilian) which I did do until I started targeting

Does that qualify as funny where you come from? Maybe your just projecting your own insecurities about your fat fingers to the chap who seems to have a problem tackliing people. Double tapping B will work especially if you heed Marius_Darkwolf's advice and lock on to your target.

Lock ... double tap. Thanks, I'll give it a try! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Did it work for you?

Make sure you're close enough to the target and locked on, then tap the tackle button. At least that's how it works on PC. AFAIK you need to be running while doing it too.
