I LOVE the short blade. I dont know why, it's just cool as hell. It's just as efficient at blocking as the long sword, it attacks quicker, and the combo kill and counter kills just look sweet (ESPECIALLY the one where you block the strong attack and elbow him in the chest, and if you hit attack he JAMS the blade in the guards head, tries to pull it out but just yanks the body, then pulls again hard to get the blade out). It's awesome to be switching targets attacking everyone, quickly turn in the other direction to throw a knife at someone further away, and then get right into combat.

i use my long sword, and if it gets hit to hell loads of times, i pretend it's broke and switch for the short blade. I love it when you've killed everyone, and one guard runs away, i sprint at him, jump on his back and shove my hidden blade into his neck :P

Short blade is so cool!

Hidden blade when enemies are off guard

Sword sometimes

I use hidden blade for some countering too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I like using the hidden blade to counter, you get some pretty sick (in both senses of the word.)
You can dodge their attack and then stab them in the back/neck which made everyone else run away http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

I love the counter move with the short blade.. "stamp on the foot elbow in the chest and then u swing around and slice his throat u even hear the gargle of blood...

You can counter with the hidden blade the same way you do with the short blade or long sword? Because I've tried and I haven't...

Throw people on the ground with free hand then assassinate them! Very easy to complete assassinations in that way - But they are quite easy anyway! lol

Question for all of you, do you fight holding blocking and only attacking when there's an opening? I play without holding and hold it only when ppl attack. You gain a lot more mobility and you can still counter well if your timing is good

I just hold the block and counter because I love the counter attack animations.

Sometimes when I'm facing multiple guards...I'll hold down the right trigger and just as they go to attack me i hit X!

I'd say it works 70% of the time but i remember one time where it didn't work like 4 times in a row despite that I was hitting X. He even waved his sword like he was trying to parry the other guy but it didn't happen. Any tips on this?

This is for the PS3 version.

When you're in sword fights with the guards, to counter their sword swings, just press the R1 trigger button right away a few times and you'll sometimes see him either block the guard's swing by the swords clashing or Altair will block and swing the swords away. I guess that's called parrying.

To attack, press the Square button and you'll see him attack by swinging his sword.


By the way, are you playing on PS3 or 360 ?

Unless I'm not ranked up to your level, I've never pressed the counter button (R1) and X to attack.

Sorry I'm using the 360.

I think it just may have to do with timing or something. I know I've hit the combo of R trigger and X but sometimes he misses the counter attack. Then I get smacked around by a sword for a bit.

D'oh!

I prefer combo kills vs counter kills because combo allows you to stay offensive and keep mobility

I use the long sword for HUGE battles (theres some gigantic guard station near acre with about 4 archer towers a bunch of guards and a big this-is-sparta-hole.) And every other time i use the hidden blade 2 counter.. Dunno why, I just feel more "alair" using it... Like they actually have the upper hand and it's more about skill than anything...



Also i use the short sword when i show ppl the game or at some random times.. Because it DOES have the best counters.. The one someone else mentioned w/ cramming the dagger in their head. And the one where he stabs them twice in the chest... so violant :P
