I may have misheard/misread, but I saw that we'd be able to craft about 300 types of bombs. Are there even? All I can think of are Smoke, Explosive, Poison Gas, and Flash.

Maybe a different "type" could include different strengths. i.e "Weak Flash Bomb", "Medium Flash Bomb" and "Strong Flash Bomb" are considered 3?

Will we be able to mix them around for a Flash/Smoke and then their strengths vary? (Which would be awesome imo)

What they end up doing will probably make sense, but as of now I'm somewhat confused. What do you guys think?

EDIT: "As well as the hookblade, Ezio will also have 300 different bomb variations at his disposal, which will be craftable." -Game Informer

To me, it seems like a typo. Maybe it's 30 bombs and someone put an extra 0 by accident

That would make sense. But wouldn't it have been edited? Especially since they send it to Ubisoft to proof-read before publishing.

Yeah, I remember that too.

I heard of one that you throw to the ground as a chase-breaker. Probably fire-crackers. That sounds pretty cool.

I think you're talking about the caltrop-launching one (caltrops are the spikey things you scatter on the ground that get stuck in people's feet) -- yes, it does sound cool. Incidentally, firecrackers and also confirmed (I think).

It's said 300 in too many different places to be a typo. They're definitely thinking outside the box then. I can think of caltrops as chase-breakers, maybe some sort of hedgehog grenade with needles, and incendiary. Plus maybe these 'bombs' aren't always explosions. There could be one that just makes a loud noise as a distraction. It's the only way I can imagine them having anywhere near 300.

Incendiary would be awesome. All of the types that have been named, if they can mix around as one bomb (i.e. Flash/smoke, etc.) would probably come up to the 300. Can't wait to see what kinds we'll have http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

This is one of the things that I'm really excited about. I love that Ubisoft is giving
us this fun new toy to play with, within the game. That, and using it to mess with the
game's AI to the best of our invested time. LOL

(reminds of having fun with MGSs guards, ect.

they could easily make levels of bombs, even more than just weak/medium/strong. There could also be things more like mines and timed bombs that you can set. I remember an interview saying something about the improved eagle sense business, and he said something about setting a trap with your bombs if I recall correctly...

i'm guessing that means there's 300 possible configurations of probably something like 75 effects in which you can install 4 total onto a single bomb? maybe? still, even 75 is a lot. idk.

I wouldn't be too thrilled about it, it is likely about 20 different effects max which can be combined leading to over 300 possible combinations...

Was it dead rising 2 which boasted 40,000 different weapon combinations, or some other ridiculous number?

Perhaps we can make them with different mechanisms, for example: tripwire-detonated, landmine-detonated, or maybe even remote detonated by pulling a string of some sorts.

Ever heard about a game called Borderlands? That game had like 17,750,000 guns in it.

yea but the difference is that borderlands' guns changed every 5 seconds really. each one was supposed to be stronger and weaker and had elemental effects. But they all were still in the catagory of sniper, pistol, smg, rifle, shotgun, rocket launcher, then energy guns, and the different bombs.

But AC has to be realistic, and has to use actual bombs that were or could have been used during that time. so 300 is a lot

I think it goes a little like...

are there even gonna be enough missions to use the 300 different bombs in? i would have thought 10 types at the most would have been enough but 300? surely not

I agree with the "Weak, Medium and Strong" taking up 3. It makes a lot of sense, can't wait to hear about the more exotic ones!

As long as they don't let Leonardo invent some kind of nuke, these bombs could be awesome.

300? That's stupid...What's the point having that many? Seems pointless and pretentious...Fail

I think its more like 300 variations of about 30 or so actual bombs/explosives or distractions etc...

Like having a smoke bomb combine with poison, like the nova gas...

just an idea.

I would personally rather have 10 well though out, useful bombs, the 300 bombs I will never use more than once.
