So since the forums have been pretty slow lately, i was just curious if anybody else noticed that in all the screen shots for AC3, Connor is holding his tomahawk in his LEFT hand. So does that mean that he is left handed as opposed to our two RIGHT handed heros from the crusades and renaissance. If it is true that he is left handed, do you think that will have an impact on the combat compared to the previous games?

this is the first game with a 2 handed combat system

so i conclude that connor is ambidextrous...

just saying...

Well, this was a short-lived thread. ;)

Yeah, I'm guessin the right hand is the one he switches weapons with the most. We do get to switch both hands, but considering that he is shown with it in his left hand, I'm guessin that's the primary hand and the right is secondary. Either way, he has to be somewhat ambidextrous to preform 2 handed combat. Would be cool if he was left-handed though, as I am too, and everything is always portrayed as being right handed.

I really don't care if he's left or right handed, but i would lke to put out that apparantly his primary wep (or if you prefer his favourite) will be the tomahawk. And on every official picture Connor is always holding it in the right hand :)

and all the others

So it looks like his right hand will be the primary hand and the left his secondary :) But didn't Alex Hutchison talk about this in one of his interviews?
Also, look at the picture where Connor is hunting an elk. he is clearly holding the bow righthanded style :)

Actually, he's holding the bow left-handed style...

When you hold the bow, you hold so that you pull the string with your primary hand.

Yeah, the bow is definitely left hand style, but those particular screens, the tomahawk is in his right hand. So, yeah, more likely than not, he's ambidextrous and they're just showing that he can use any weapon in either hand.

I wish video games allowed your character to fight left or right handed with weapons... Like Skyrim (except the Archery is always right handed)

Well, he dual wields so you would assume he could use both hands. Imagine if you went for a left handed attack and you just kept missing :P

The new Teaser shows he uses his Hidden Blade/Dagger on his left and his Tomahawk on the right.

He definitely uses his bow 'right-hand style'

He's a dual wielder isn't he? Maybe he's ambidextrous.

No. Like I said, when one uses a bow they pull the string with their primary hand, thus holding the bow itself with their secondary hand.

Go and watch the new teaser trailer, he clearly pulls the string with his right hand.

If you paid attention, you would've noticed I was referring to the pic he posted.

Also, if he's going to dual wield his hidden blade, it would make sense to have his melee weapon in his left (Or right) hand to leave the right (Or left) hand with the blade free, in case he decides to bring that out!
