One of the Abstergo challenges is "Disarm 3 agiles and kill them with their own weapons". Every time I try to do this, Edward disarms the agile, but instantly drops the knife and refuses to pick it up. Is there something I'm missing?

Basically, this means you already have a knife. This bug is supposedly fixed in the new update for PC. You can't select the knife with mouse and keyboard unless you map a d-pad button in the Assassin4.ini to a button on a keyboard that summons the 'cross'. People playing with the controller don't have this issue.

Make sure you aren't holding a throwing knife (as you can only have one)

Then Disarm => Quick Select => Throwing Knife (far left) => Kill Agile with the knife

Where would I have gotten a knife? I only started disarming guards because of this challenge yesterday.

Where do I check if I have a throwing knife and how do I equip it?

Edit: I'm playing on KB+M. Does that mean I'm screwed?

Check this. (http://www.reddit.com/r/assassinscreed/comments/1rkms5/psa_solution_to_ac4_black_flag_throwing_knife_bug/)

Also this (http://www.penticoff.com/nb/kbds/ibm104kb.htm) to set it to any key you like.

Btw, you need to use the 'tool' button to counter with a knife, so maybe when you started disarming guards you disarmed an agile and used the 'attack' button instead, so the knife kinda just stayed there.

No, the latest PC update fixes the issue, where the knife was selectable. Also, you can collect the knives by picking up ones that have fallen to the ground after you kill an Agile, which is probably what you did, unknowingly.

Thank you, I'll give this a try.

Nope. Still not working. :( I checked and I don't have a throwing knife in my inventory, but I also can't pick one up after disarming an agile.

Hello!

As I am willing to complete all the Abstergo Challenges I want some specific informations about this one.
I play the game on PC using an Xbox 360 contoller.
When I was in a smuggler's den I tried to kill some guards with an axe picked-up form some dead smugglers. I don't know why but Edward dropped the axe and fought bare hands and I couldn't pick it up neither. This concerns me about completing this challenge here discussed.
How do I equip myself with a knife? There aren't for sale in General Stores. How do you disarm an enemy? Someone here said something about the tool button. This doesn't mean you already must have the weapon and by having it will be used as primary weapon (instead of fists or swords)?
