i love hidden blade and small blade before, but that was before ac3, now tomahawk and knife all the way to the ending, i love the default weapon that i did not change it to the end of my first play.

Altair's sword ONLY in AC1. Sword and dagger fights after AC1 were awful. In AC2, the sword bleeds...and it makes a gushing sound every time you hit it. Same thing in ACB and ACR. AC3's sword fighting with Haytham I think is almost better than Altair's in AC1. It's so subtle yet deadly, like how he stands with a straight back and slashes them across the chest twice, then stops for a sec, then does it again. Simply epic :D

The tomahaak with the assassins insignia is REALLY good!!! To the point that I almost do not care about other tomahawks.....

I picked the sword because I used it the most in previous games, but the tomahawk is really fun. I love how Connor flips it around when he's not in direct combat.

Short Blade for me . ( or Knife ) In previous games this had some seriously Brutal kill animations. Not so much in AC-3 though

I See the tomahawk as more of a Killer's weapon than an Assassin's .

The hidden balde (especially the hookblade) and dagger/short blade for me.
And somehow I don't like the heavy weapons.

I voted hidden blade but I am not talking about the AC3 version. I don't really like how it detaches. I have to go with the regular blade and hookblade. I loved it because I could sneak up on 2 soldiers and stab them both at the same time. The hookblade was great because it allowed me to turn the environment into a weapon. I loved throwing scaffolding onto soldiers. I also liked how I could use it to flip right over them. And the fact it allows me to traverse verticle locations extremely fast. Also it was usefull when going long distances thanks to ziplines. All in all the hidden/hookblade combo is the best in my opinion thx to it's diversity when it comes down to uses.

You can still do that in AC III

Actually it's a bit different in AC3. You basically have to be running at them and have the attack button pressed down and watch as we basically tackle these 2 guys and stab them in the head. Or you can walk slowly into them and do a mini stab while moving on. I just like being able to go up behind them and stab them in the head without having to get a running start. The older form atleast gave me the illusion it was discrete. But that's just what I think.

Actually You CAN do a double discreet kill in AC III

I also like the some of the distance weapons, especially the crossbow. Silent yet effective - and you have more munition :D

Hidden blades for me. Especially the AC2/ACB ones. The hook style and Connor's swivel knife are okay, but the matching blades are badassery incarnate.

i don't really like the hidden blades in ac3, they didn't really flow well with me, my favourite weapon in the ezio trilogy was the hidden blades, in ac1 it was the short blade and in ac3 it is the tomahawk by far!

I would have picked Hidden Blade, but after AC3, it sucks.

I picked the knife (AC I, AC: BL, AC II, AC:B and AC:R).

I picked the Hidden Blade because of AC III..

I hated it in AC II, ACB and ACR

Hidden blade, such an iconic weapon! The double kill Connor does when he stabs one guard rapidly in his stomach is just amazing! Second is ropedart for me. I hope it's here to stay, but it needs more uses!

Sword. I just can't imagine an AC game without swords. I've tried using blunt weapons but they always look ridiculous on the assassin, so I quickly switch back to the sword.

I love the single hidden blade because I only need 1.

Bow, tomahawk, hidden gun, rope dart, single hidden blade.

Can't pick just one. Favorite 3:

Tomahawk. The assassins insignia just makes it look badass, and the kills with it are the best in the entire series. Personally, at no point have I enjoyed the sword fighting in any of the games, but Connor's dual wielding with the tomahawk is great and feels really natural to me.

Crossbow. Hax incarnate.

Dual Hidden blades, as Ezio used them from AC2 to the start of ACR. I personally don't care for Connor's, though I didn't mind the hookblade.

Hidden Blade and Hook Blade, awesomeness not only in the game, but as a concept too!

these things are awesome, when you use them, you are basically playing golf with the red-coats. :p

Oh my bad. I thought you meant only Assassin's Creed 3. So I said tomahawk. But in the series my favourite is hidden blade

Tomahawk all day, the bow and arrow was cold 2 although it took way 2 long 2 shoot

And the accuracy is bad aswell, your target literally needs to be still for you to get a direct hit.
