So far it seems like you are only able to dual-wield.. so I wanted to know if this was the case.
Are you able to just use your tomahawk for example and not dual-wield, or only duel-wield?

When I saw the thread title I was afraid it was gonna be: Why can't we TRIPLE wield, with something on the boot!? XD

Luckily, my assumption proved to be false. It does seem that dual wielding is just always a weapon + flipped hidden blade. It has however been confirmed that you can single wield swords (which might suggest you can do so with the tomahawk too).

The dual wielding doesn't seem to change much except it being cool and the double counters, since we're apparently still locked to just picking a weapon which will always be combined with the hidden blade.

Seen him dual wielding a sword with his hidden blade. But apparently you can also single wield the sword, so that's some hope for the people who really want to just use the tomahawk alone.

Also keep in mind that a chunk of the game will be before Connor becomes an assassin, or even has a hidden blade. I don't see why they would give him the masterful dual wielding of his tomahawk (which he will probably have in some form at that point) and something else right from the beginning. So there's probably animations for just using the tomahawk, which they probably won't just throw away by locking out the option once you can dual wield.

Gah pac, I was just gonna post that! But anyway, Connor is clearly fighting with just the sword there.

Which brings up the question, how many different swords are there?

I remember reading that there were multiple weapons for each type like in previous games. This time, however, they've apparently added a new weapon type called shortswords (my guess is they'll just play like swords only faster and aesthatically slightly different of course).

I saw in one video from Inside AC3 that Connor is single wielding,but i dont care much.

Nope, you can dual wield all weapons (besides the bow) together. This is presumably: rope dart, pistols, tomahawk, sword, hidden blade

That's not all weapons then. The only weapons in the list are the tomahawk, sword and hidden blade (which will all be dual wielded with the hidden blade). The rest are tools and are assigned to the tool button (not to the weapon button). And we can't go tomahawk + tomahawk, sword + sword, or any other combination we can think of (which is what a lot of people assumed): We're restricted to one choice + the hidden blade. The tools are more like gadgets in Batman Arkham City (the pistols, rope dart, bow and others are all tools and are assigned to a different button, think of it as "quickfire" buttons).

Remember: Dual wielding is wielding and using a weapon in both hands at the same time, quickly firing a shot with a pistol and then putting it back is not dual wielding (hence why it's assigned as a tool and not a weapon).

I wish we could dual wield two of the same weapons. Tomahawks, swords, boarding axes, rope darts... ayduvbaxjurw

He's actually stabbing/slashing him in the chest with his flipped hidden blade. He's simply holding it in both hands together with his tomahawk.

Oh ok. Then its only going to be dual-wielding, because Connor is a Dual-wielding specialist or whatever AlexH said.

It would make sense to be able to only single-wield weapons along with the dual-wielding, though I'm still unsure about how the mechanics work now. I know he's suppose to be a dual-wielding specialist, though I don't think that means he should be "restricted" to only dual-wielding?

He is always Knife-"something", even if you have Pistol and Tomahawk selected, that is what "annoys" me a little.
