Ok, I think I must be missing something here. It seems like killing someone in the bushes should be way easier than what I'm experiencing.

I get in the bushes; when a guard is near I whistle. Then when he gets near me there is no context sensitive option to assassinate, unless I hold down the right trigger, but when I hold down the right trigger I stand up and everyone around can see me...

What the hell?! What am I missing? It seems like this should be easy...

What I usually do is whistle, then move a little closer and once his SSI turns red I assassinate him. You have to make sure you're close enough to kill and quick enough to not get noticed.

Well, you do have to make sure no one else is watching. If you whistle, you sometimes might draw more attention than you've intended. As for the actual execution- it sometimes helps to tap "X" a couple times, to be sure that you'll stab your target as soon as possible. It's also sometimes more effective to stab them in the back as they're walking away from the bush once their investigation is complete.

This is what makes me love the AC games. The fact that they cater for many different methods of game-play, with only a few missions that demand a single way to complete it. (occasional mandatory stealth for eg.) Personally, having just started ac4, i have no trouble with assassinating from bushes. on the other hand, i have on at least 2 occasions panicked and hid from a target i am following, only to realise he is through several walls and i can only see him because i tagged him in E.V. It's taking some getting used to.

Whistle and grab those bastards as they come near you. Simple.

At the end of the day, it may look stylish if you can sneak round and kill 20 guards, open 6 chests, grab a shanty, kill the main target and violate his pet cat, without being seen, but sometimes its quicker and more efficient to run in shouting "raaa" and kill everyone, grabbing the chests, shanty and cat on the way out.

Yes. Sheep are probably a bit bulky to get under your arm when you are making a rooftop getaway! :D

If you're holding right trigger, it's the high-profile mode button. Nothing you do while holding right trigger will be stealthy.

That was my problem too... *COUGH*

Also at OP, holding down the run button wont do anything

Sit in a bush next to a guy. Instead of doing a stealth kill by pulling him into the bush hold the high profile/running trigger and press kill. You'll pop up and wreck the guard. Cool kills but not stealthy.
