Since ubisoft doesn't take suggestions I figured it would be necessary to make this post.
The blowpipe ruined black flag for me. It's way over powered and it looks absolutely ridiculous.
What were they thinking? They ruined a perfectly good character model. My OCD literally won't allow me to concentrate on anything other than that dangling ****ing blowpipe! Ubisoft, you owe it to us to release an update that allows you to change weapons, or at least choose which ones show!

I hardly see how a tiny wooden stick can ruin an entire game.
Try different outfits and see what you think fits best with the blowpipe.

OCD aside, if you thinks it's OP, don't use it!

However, welcome to the forums!

I am not bothered either way about the blow pipe, but i think being able to equip your assassin with your own personal weapon choices would be a good addition. Maybe they could have given us the choice between the blow pipe or throwing knives. Something like that.

The option to un-equip weapons has long been a central desire for a lot of players.

Why do I feel like I've seen a thread that looks exactly like this...

It can ruin relationships.

OT - Didn't really mind the look of it, I liked how it flapped around (seriously... I am being serious). I did think it was way OP though, which is why I didn't use it.

Well, yes I would love to be given the option to remove weapons. I like my models clean but, I think you're really overreacting too...I mean...it ruined the entire game? come now...i'm sure there was something you liked that took your mind off the blow pipe? and cussing really wont get you anywhere..

I feel you OP, the small blowpipe gave me cancer unfortunatly. Luckily it also cured my cancer, but it also gave me leprosy, and it did not cure that......oh........

I think it went up other places but it might have come out my nose, ok you know what this should be a feature in Assassin's Creed 7, who's with me?! Nobody, oh ok.....

So simply because you think the blowpipe looks ugly, it ruined the ENTIRE game for you?
...
Seriously?
Dammit, that's some high quality overreacting right here.

Thanks for the replies guys. Despite how absolutely annoying this is for me, I'm a bit more content knowing that my opinion is being heard haha.

I agree, but I'm pretty stubborn. Most of my anger came from hours of me trying to get that glitch to work, where after a smugglers den mission you can make your weapons disappear. All I could do is lose my swords and guns. No matter how many times I tried, the blowpipe remained -_-

I loved what the blowpipe could have been, and I was pretty happy overall with what it was. It is quite overpowered, and the berserk dart is pretty absurd, but it still helped make stealth better in AC4 than it has been in ages. I definitely think the blow-dart should return in sequels, but with a few significant nerfs.
