In the FIGHTER section of the Abstergo Challenges it requires you to kill an enemy with every kind of weapon. I have done 8/9 can anyone help with what the weapons are? What am I missing?

Thanks

You have to disarm a guard with a knife and it will add the knife to your weapon selector and then you can throw it.

I've already done this because you have to do it for the kill 3 agile guards challenge.

Sword
Pistols
Throwing Knife
Blowpipe
Rope Dart
Axe
Hidden Blades
Musket

But what is the ninth?

Yes! I have the same problem! But my friend did not! He completed it. So I think this is a messed up bug. If you play the very first mission (yes I started another game) en you kill the assassin Duncan Walpole it says 2/9 sometimes. So I think it's bugged. But why would ubi say */9 weapons If there are only 8? Maybe the single handed sword does not synchronize or the unarmed does not?

That means that Perhaps a new weapon can POP around with some coming -up DLCs - You have a pre-announcement at the menu for the coming-up DLCs // Main game menu /"additional content rectangle" - In the list you have Freedom cry and also another one including some weapons From Altair & Ezio (Coming soon) - Perhaps, that this DLC includes the missing one (?)

Possibly single sword or a different heavy weapon. Or maaaaybe there are improvised weapons again like in ac2. I wouldn't know, I haven't played yet.

Same boat (pun intended). Not only am I 8/9 weapons, I'm also 5/6 sea animals. These are literally the only things keeping me from 100%.

I have the same problem with the weapons challenge!... Try everything, every weapon avaiable in my inventory... Try the knife of agile guard, also the axe, the musquet... and nothing happens. Maybe ther's a especific weapon in story line! I don't know...
Please, help!!!!

No mace in this game?

Try throwing a barrel near an enemy and blowing it up. It may work.

Has anyone "thrown" an axe into someone's head? I mean, I did that and I got the challenge to pop complete.

I think this might be a bug connected to the hidden blade.

I've killed with:
1: swivel gun
2: Musket [shooting and melee]
3: agile knive
4: single-sword
5: brute axe [melee and special]
6: guns
7: edwards swords
8: rope dart [hang, strangle from ledge, counter-kill]
9: darts [both of them]
10: fists
11: hidden blades.

That's what I remember and know for sure I've used and am at 8/9.

The reason I think the hidden blades could be the problem is because at the start of the game, before getting the hidden blades, I did what was animated as a hidden blade kill. It's possible the game ticked it off as done, didn't add it to the challenge list due to being at a point where you don't have the weapon and now refuses to count the kills.

Did you try to finish off guards you knocked out with fists?

I starteda new game and used weapons in this order:

Double sword -used to kill Duncan
throwing knife - by disarming agile guard
boarding axe
musket - by firing it
musket - as melee weapon
single sword - by disarming a regular guard
hidden blades - once received
blow pipe - beserk dart
rope dart

The swivel canon didn't count. I did go back and try all of these on my first game with no luck of completing the challenge, so there may still be a glitch.

This glitch is stopping me from getting 100%. I don't know why Ubisoft haven't sorted it after all the time?

I had no problem getting this achievement, was at 8/9 before I unlocked the rope dart (which gave me 9/9 and achievement), I wasn't actively pursuing the achievement, it's just my playstyle trying to experiment with everything possible (also big fan of kill cinematics with various weapons etc).

The game has now been patched fixing the assassination contracts bug, does anyone know if this bug has been fixed as well?

Please only comment if you have been stuck with this bug and since the new patch have finished the challenge [and which weapon you finished it with.]

I does seem that way but this thread http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/806204-Abstergo-Challenges-Kill-enemies-with-every-type-of-weapon-(9-total) says that while it's saying it's complete it isn't adding to the total challenges number [leaving people at 99/100]

I knew it was too soon to start celebrating! I've done 98 out of 100 challenges but it's saying I've only done 97! Ah, what a waste!!! And what's worse is that I've got 100% for the game, even got the "By The Book" achievement. Sort it out, Ubisoft!

Tried the game yesterday after my post, this challenge is now "complete" but I'm still at 99/100 just like when it was stuck at 8/9.

PS3 user I deleted my game save (stuck at 99/100 after the last 2 or 3 patches), I deleted the game profile (as suggested on another site) and nothing is working. I started the game over again and I realized something, when I got to Havana, purchased the British Cutlasses [killed the guards chasing you in Sequence 2, Memory 1, and the fighter challenge is showing 1 out of 9 [should be 2 out of 9]. I backtracked, killed Duncan Warpole with the default sword, knocked out the guards near Stede Bonnet before you save him, and 1 out of 9 still shows. I'm wondering if this could be where the glitch is starting. Early enough in the game it may not be noticed, between purchasing new weapons and advancing in the game. Are the cutlasses are being counted as 1 weapon along with the default sword between Cape Bonavista and Havana. [I'm gonna try to keep track of the weapons as I'm getting them, and Unarmed combat or sword had to be the first or second one]. Is anybody else having the problem early on in the game?

I had this same bug on my first save, It got to me so much I deleted it and started a new one which I was able to complete the challenge on. It seems though, My challenges are at 99/100 and I'm at 100% sync but all of them say completed. I have found a post with a problem similar to this page but no regards to this one challenge though, might help you guys out

I think the ninth weapon is the throwing knife.
For weeks I have problems with the 'disarm and kill agile guards' and 'kill with every time of weapon 8/9'
For those with AC4 PC version, you can select the throwing knife if you hold the Q button. The primary weapon icons should pops up at the bottom right of your computer screen (showing unarmed, hidden blades and swords icon). While still holding the Q button, rotate the wheel on your mouse, the secondary weapon icons pop up. It will show the throwing knife above the 'coins' icon.
Today when I finish the 'disarm and kill agile guards' challenge, then it prompt me that i completed the first challenge followed by 'kill with every time of weapon 9/9'
