Hey guys! So, I was wondering how on Earth are we going to activate the switchblade. Do you think a button will activate/deactivate it or it will be context sensitive so when you are near your target it will automatically jump? Post your thoughts!

well, i think its going to be like drawing your sword/crossbow/whatever, you will select it out of your arsenal, and either sheith in or unsheith it, not sure how to select weapons or equip them, but since in the new gameplay trailer, he takes the switch blade out, the sheiths it again, i asume you can.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif


(BTW, i have no idea if im spelling sheith right or wrong, so dont make fun of me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif )

In the true spirit of the game, i reckon you can control it.

I mean if you want to be a tool and flaunt it in public then you're gonna have lots of angry crusaders chasing you.

Not sure if this should be in the Official weapons and strategy (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/5251069024/m/5481080884?r=5481080884#5481080884) thread or not. Oh well.

Personally I hope it's a context sensitive button, when you're near your target the hand with weapon button will change to your switchblade.

But then again in the video he brought it out randomly so I'm not sure if that's how it actually will be.

I think it might have its own separate button... considering that the analog sticks are presumably for motion and camera control, and the only specified buttons that have been confirmed are A,B,X,Y, and right trigger, there are plenty of buttons left to give one solely to extend and retract the switchblade (possible the right bumper, so its nice and handy) and still leave some for choosing other weapons you use (maybe the D-Pad for weapon choosing).

If it did have its own button, I think that the "hands with weapon" button, would then contextually change to control the switchblade hand after it was extended.

L trigger or one of the bumpers would make sense eh?

considering its that or the D-pad or click the thumbsticks

either it activates itself when near a target or
you have a button to active it..

or, another possibilty is that 1 button will activate the switchblade, kill the guy and deactivate the switchblade again..

personally i hope there's a button to active it, and hopefully you can use your normal weapon (for example sword) and your switchblade at the same time, that would be cool http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

No, honestly it's not an option that it activates by itself. I can bet all my money on this.

But that it activates, attacks the target and deactivate IS possible, tho that would be bad since it would mean you can't fight with it.

as everything is context sensitive i think its highly likely that the switch blade cant be used for normal fighting - it'll probably just be the hands with weapon button when near your target (though i'm not saying its not possible that you cant simply equip it - i just dont know how effective a switchblade would be against a sword as they are striving for realism in the combat in this game). the point is none of us (except the devs) can actually know what button it is so anyone who says they're certain of something which hasn't been explicitly stated in the interviews or made excrutiatingly obvious in the trailers is lying. not trying to be harsh but we don't know yet and saying it's definitely one thing or the other is wrong.
it would be cool though if you could just whip out the switchblade like in the new trailer though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I know theres an intensity button and that the A or X button controls the feet. So do we pull the intensity button combined with the feet button to kick our enemies? or is there another button to use to execute a kick???

because what if u wanted to run up a wall but instead when u press A and RT u kick a dude instead and as a result become trapped and die?

what im saying is i dont want my movement and combat becoming mixed up http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

A little bit offtopic.. But I imagine that the system they're using is going to fail miserably or going to be a huge success. I mean, if you wanted to punch the guard instead it pushes him slow. If you wanted to kick the guard, instead it does a quick dodge. Etc..

As we know there is an intensity button, maybe when you have no weapon out the intensity button will use the blade to fight on your wepaon hand. Unless your free hand punches when you don't press the intensity button and but attacks with the blade when you do.

but i hope it will be abit like the "oblivion" where you can either draw it and then attack, or draw it and attack in one motion, so he goes to punch and when he's punching he switches it and it comes out and stabs whoever in the temple or something...

Me thinks, that if you press the "hand-with-the-blade-button" near a guard or your "prey" then you will assassinate him... but if you press it near no-one then Alta´r will only do like in the trailer... show it to the world... then get it back inside after a few seconds...

i think the button the guy presses in the 3/4 trailer is how an assassin gets their finger cut off in the first place, a gillotine(sp?). its definetly not altair pressing it to make his switchblade come out (although the video uses that really cool animation to go from the gillotine to the blade from his hand).

i think that you somehow get to choose what weapon is equipped to your "weapon in hand" button. you press that to sheath/unsheath that weapon, whether it is your switchblade, sword, throwing knives or crossbow shouldnt matter. so maybe we should be asking what button controls how you change weapons?

we may not have that kind of technology now but that is the futuristic part of the series (and the genetic memories still are not confirmed to be just that) im talkin about the 12th century part...

how in the 12th century are they going to be able to get all that clockwork in someones hand and have an external button to connect it all so that he presses the button with one of the fingers on the hand with the blade, its just not possible back then

also the ubidays trailer, when it shows him take out the blade in the beginning he actually spreads his hand out all the way when the blade comes out, obviously he isnt pressing a button...

then there is the trailer with the bell and the guy preaching about the traitors when altair jumps toward him his hand is spread out, and the blade comes out...

im sure if i kept looking there would be more examples so im quite sure that mechanism or at the very least the button part of it is not for the switchblade

like i said already the gillotine(if thats what it is) to the blade animation looks good and allows the trailer to keep going but i dont think the stuff before the blade coming out is part of the blade mechanism.

lol he spreads his hand yeah..... so whatcha tryina say the blade comes out when he moves his hand up? thats good mechanism, youre buying apples and then you kill the merchant accidently hmmm...... and even if he spreads his hand so what? what stops him from pressing the button

and we don't know what kind of technology the assassins had.... and why would they want to confuse people by doing that animation in the middle of that scene? just when he pulls out the switchblade...... without explaining anything later, so yes it is the mechanism

but just curious what kind of mechanism you think lets the blade come out then?

btw.. ubidays trailer.. he pushes it with his thumb

e3 trailer - his thumb again

oh and.. your argument how they didnt have technology... they have done and will do stuff that dont match history. ( ubi )

I'd say that the video (the one being referred to as a guillotine), is definitely actually the blade being activated. If they used a guillotine to sever his finger, I doubt it'd be that elaborate... in the video, you can see the blade extend past his fingers before it changes to the shot of it from below his hand. That being said, that would confirm there's a switch to activate the blade, as we can see it being activated in that same video. Also, I can slightly make out that there are at least two sections to the blade that they're showing just before it cuts to the view below his hand, which matches some concept art of the blade mechanism.

Also, this concept art (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Draco_James/41565gq4.jpg), shows a ring that activates the blade, and I think the switch would be on the ring. In any case, I don't think it really matters for the game, but in reality, having it activate by simply opening your hand would cause problems, and I'd suspect Altair is just doing it because if his hand was in a fist when the blade opened, the blade would slice open the sides of his middle and pinky fingers as it slid out between them.

EDIT: Also, the blade mechanism would obviously not be embedded in his hand. There's concept art and pictures showing that it only straps onto his arm.

you see now that makes sense, i can understand it now that i see that concept art, and that it isnt IN his hand... thanks for actually considering what i said and actually coming up with something solid to prove it wrong. moqqy just tried to back up opinions with opinions and i was getting more and more confused since it seemed he was backin up my arguments at some points so thanks.

@moqqy - next time try to come up with SOMETHING that isnt what i already brought up and going no thats not right...

anywayz back to the original part of this thread: do you guys think that pressing the "weapon in hand" button will unsheath your weapon when in and out of combat and pressing it with it unsheathed out of combat (or running from it) will sheath it again. and pressing it unsheathed in combat will attack. that way you need just 2 buttons (plus the intensity button) to sheath/unsheath switch weapons and attack?

i just realized that his blade is in his left hand while his weapon is in his right... so another idea instead maybe it is as simple as maximum intensity with the "free hand" button will make the blade come out or attack? i dont know now that i realized that.

one last thing: i never said i thought the blade came out when he opened his hand i just said that he does that every time the blade comes out, probably to make room like draco said

I'd say that the video (the one being referred to as a guillotine), is definitely actually the blade being activated. If they used a guillotine to sever his finger, I doubt it'd be that elaborate... in the video, you can see the blade extend past his fingers before it changes to the shot of it from below his hand. That being said, that would confirm there's a switch to activate the blade, as we can see it being activated in that same video. Also, I can slightly make out that there are at least two sections to the blade that they're showing just before it cuts to the view below his hand, which matches some concept art of the blade mechanism.

Also, this concept art (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Draco_James/41565gq4.jpg), shows a ring that activates the blade, and I think the switch would be on the ring. In any case, I don't think it really matters for the game, but in reality, having it activate by simply opening your hand would cause problems, and I'd suspect Altair is just doing it because if his hand was in a fist when the blade opened, the blade would slice open the sides of his middle and pinky fingers as it slid out between them.

The switchblade definitely is a mechanism. After analysing the video there was a little switch and when it was turned the blade would come out.

I know this is unrelated but it would be pretty cool say you went to the marketplace in A.C. and you could buy different designs for the switchblade eg. the dagger that comes out could be serated or have a different shape or have some kind of gold writing on it. I'm not saying thats whats going to happen. it'd just be cool is all

:d well at least not in a market place.. like you would go around showing your hidden blade to everyone :P and different shape and gold writing etc wouldnt be really practical, and i think the assassins dont want them to be fancy, but efficient

Ok theres a button, its cleary shown in some videos, thats how it works. Done. If you want to know exactly how it works watch the video where he stabs a guy and it shows the knife inside of him (kinda shows the mechanism) </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Thank you.

Oh and I think that would be cool. I would have it so the blade was like split down the middle.
