Well, you know how during the loading screen there's a voice that tells you hints? One of them is that after a counter, you can finish off your foe by breaking their legs.

How exactly is this done? The only leg-breaking I saw was that one patient in that one mission in Acre. (Being vague on purpose.)

He sometimes break the legs of his victims after combo attacking. Don't remember if it was with the shortblade or the sword.

there are i think 2 per weapon ( sword and short blade) where after countering by kicking or punching, the guard will stand for like a secound. you can them hit attack to either stab their body or slash their head or hit feet to break legs.

When comboattacking Altair kicks them in the legs, it looks pretty.

i wondered this for awhile also, But i think either it is scripted wrong or it's something they took out later, There is no way 2 choose 2 break someones leg. There is however, One counter with the long sword where he hits them in the back of the leg and it makes the same "crack" noise it makes when he does the move that breaks their arm. I also took the time 2 notice that on that counter he hits them with the back of the sword instead of the sharp end...

I think I figured it out.

Sometimes, at certain moments of a counter, Altair pauses for a moment. You have, at that moment, the option of hitting the weapon button and doing a cool stabby slashy move, or you can hit the "legs" (which is A for me) button and Altair does a cool kick or punch move.
