Hi, I'm Chazza_Assassin,

I'm new to the forums so be nice http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Anyway. I feel quite stupid because i beat Assassin's Creed three weeks ago, and after coming back to it for flag collecting etc., i realised that you could do Combo Moves!

This may seem silly but i've been playing the whole game with counters no realising i've been missing out on some sweet animations (the one where you break his leg then pick him up by his neck).

Yep, they look cool but i find them some-what ahrd to do. Congrats on finding them, and good luck on the Flags.

Thanks buddy. Yeah, i agree about them being quite hard to do but once used to them they become some-what easier. Can you manage to do Combo's with a longsword? I've only managed to pull it off with the shortsword

Ya but you have to wait more between attacks, the timing is different.

ive done combo attacks before, but accidental, i just kept attacking and it happened

is that how you do it?

To do a combo attack, you must press the <span class="ev_code_blue">(X)</span>(or PS3: (<span class="ev_code_pink">[]</span>)) button, then press it again exactly when the swords clash. That is, to say, that the game must receive the signal from the button press at the moment of clash, not that you start pressing the button at the moment of clash.

I've only done it with the longsword, and rarely when I was trying to do it. Haven't tried it with the shortsword yet.

Oh, dude!! You are soo missing out, the shortshort combo kills are so awesome.

Many people forget that combo moves exist because they are so focused on using counter. Glad you found them.

Thanks for all the feedback guys! I still haven't had a chance to try out longsword counters hehe.

Hidden blade counters are the best... blade through ears ftw.

Are people really having that hard of a time with 'em? At this point I can kill twenty soldiers without being touched using nothing but combos, with the longsword. They rock.
My favorite is when he b*tch slaps them and then stabs them while they're distracted by the slap!

there is a combo where he b*tch slaps the guy in the face, then the guy does a 180 and altair runs the sword through him while he is facing the other way

yeah, he ***** slaps them then stabs them in the crotch area.

The de-masculising combo.

The best combo ever is with the longsword, it's a simple spin, slash at the neck, then a stab through the chest. Most realistic looking one and looks really sweet. My favorite shortblade one is the punch, elbow to face, knife to throat. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I rarely use counters unlike everyone else. I just go from one soldier to the next, comboing them one by one. If one dodges a swing, i wait for him to come back to attack, and THAT's when i use a counter, or if someone swins at me before i have a chance to do anything.

I never hold the guard button. Fighting takes so much longer and looks so much duller than it has to if you just hold the guard button and counter everything like a sissy.

The slapping move is not a counter. How can you move around a pointy sword and slap someone without impaling yourself?

Seriously, just do a few combos with the longsword and you'll get the ***** slap.

Duh much?

Who ever said it was?

Or was that random?

My turn: Altair does not carry egg salad sandwiches with him unless it is tuesday.

I love the one where he hits the guy and he bends over, then you hit X again and he stabs him in the top of the skull. Makes such an awesome sound.
