View Full Version : Byzantine hit squads?

Are their Byzantine hit squads in AC:R? I was making my way through the Imperial district towards the Ferrys when 4 Byzantine units run towards me and started attacking.

The area was free of Templar influence, and I had not done anything wrong, nor did they show up on the map as a red dot(at least I don't think I saw one).

I quickly dispatched them, but I found it odd.

Yes, it's one of the three or four different types of random events. The other ones being beating up some random guy who's picking a fight and carrying boxes for some other dude.

The ones with the little circle? That explains it.

Thank you.

Byzantines? They attack you on sight, always.

Not exactly. They're not quite as alert as the Templar knights in AC1 who could just glance at you and immediately attack. The Byzantines' detection meter just fills up a lot faster than normal guards' but it's still possible to avoid being detected by them if you duck out of sight before the meter is full.
