you know on the William de Montferrat video?

when the guy drops to the platform he leaps down on William and assassinating him in mid air... i couldn't pull this off and had to drop to the floor letting all the guards have time to attack me...

iv already completed the game but, how do you do this? it looks really cool.

Yea ive seen in game videos people do this...

I have no idea. I was trying to figure it out the whole time. I believe I did it once on accident to a citizen.

i think the over exaggerated this in the video

If u run at him full tilt barge the guards out the way and with HIGH action held and running u can assassinate him.. Altair will jump and land on him with Hidden blade in neck! , dont forget to Lock the target first

You lock on to the character that you wish to assassinate. activate your hidden blade press and hold the button that gets you into high profile then press the button to use the hidden blade. Altair will jump and assassinate his victim

Lock on to your target with your hidden blade equipped. You have to be holding the right trigger. Run toward him and right before you leap off, press X to assassinate. The HUD should have "assassinate" labeled as the X command.

Yea on the little platform you can drop onto to, all i did was lock on to him, hold right trigger right on the edge of the platform, and it gave me the option to assassinate and it did the jump from above. Can't remember if i had to run forward to do it but i don't think so.

you can climb a building halfway up, lock on the target, and hit the assassination button when it pops up, and youll jump of the building like what kind of happens in the vid.

Equipt Hidden Blade, stand on a building/platform near him, Target him, hold Right Trigger and X (Assassinate) and jump towards him, while holding all that.

I finally figured out how to do that. I always made the mistake of using high profile and pressing the jump button and hoped to assassinate in mid air. All you have to do is just lock on to your target, get at the edge of the platform, hold your high profile button then your assassinate button. If he's close enough Altair jumps off by himself and assassinates him. You can do this to guards too. The problem is you can't be too high up, you need to be fairly close to the ground. Just kind of play around in different areas to see how high you can assassinate people from.

hold the "trigger" button, or whatever it's called, make sure you're on a low building, run to the edge, towards the target you're locked on to, then press the assassinate button as you jump off.

You don't have 2 lock on.

It just helps sometimes..

You just select your hidden blade and hold the high action button, It will say assassinate even when you are on a ledge above him.. or even hanging on a wall... Press it and he will jump off and assassinate... You can do it on normal people also.

ok wow u guys are clueless. the way to do this move is to go to the edge of the building oyu wish to attack from and depending on height and the distance your target is at when you hold the high profile button and lean over the edge he will jump off and assassinate him.

NOTE: there is a height and distance limit for this move. If you are too high or too far it wont work.

Seems you are clueless too mate...

You dont have to be leaning over the edge, you can just run towards the edge in high profile, lock on as soon as the target goes blue, and press assassinate when you are the near the edge and you will jump off and assassinate the enemy. You can do this to any NPC in the game that can be locked onto.

As people have said you dont have to locked on, but it makes it much more difficult and some time you just jump over your target or fall short
