    Favourite Ranged Weapon across all games?

    On my other poll, favourite weapons, I failed to mention that I only included melee weapons on purpose, so a few people have told me that I forgot a lot of their favourite ranged weapons, so I shall do that now!
    This is perfect PR for Ubisoft, with all the polls I've made, they'll be able to put the most popular things together into one perfect assassin...

    Hidden Gun FTW, although I feel the need to say that the crossbow is the most stupidly useful tool in any of the games.

    The bow should be automatically disqualified because of the GOD. AWFUL. "free" aiming system.

    Throwing knives, they are the most assassiny thing of all, because they can be easily hidden.

    For me it is definitely the spears/axes. When waiting for money to generate in the bank, since I had 100% in missions and was just buying properties, all I did was steal weapons and throw them at guards, it is the most fun I can have with ranged weapons.

    Definitely the blunderbuss. The animations for it are just god-like...

    Another reason to replay Freedom Cry.

    Because they weren't practical. I mean, at the time, carrying 4 pistols weren't illegal and they make him more intimidating.

    I suppose, but you can easily release the mechanism on a sleeve gun... much like the hidden blade, and he could have had the sleeve gun as well as the pistols. For up close and personal attacks... imagine him sitting at the templar table... flipping out his sleeve gun and shooting one of the templars in one swift move...

    That would be awesome, but the normal pistols are just as effective. I mean, they're loaded on his chest.

    Also, realistically, Edward is suppose to be randomly picking up and throwing away pistols during battles because reloading takes too much time. They mentioned that a lot in the advertisements.
