I don't know about doing such after a strong attack, but when you do a counter, RIGHT after the counter starts, press the "legs" button. It won't work all the time, but that's how you do it.

On some counters he'll do something, Like hit them twice with his fists, And they just stand there for like half a second, If you press the legs button he'll break their legs if you press the weapon hand button he'll use his weapon.. And patrice once said that sometimes you can do a headbutt or something but that never happens.

ok cool .
i have broken their legs a couple of times with the combo attack but it says 'after guards do a strong attack, they are left vulnerable.finish them off by either breaking there legs or throwing them to the ground'

or something like that

Yeah i know what your'e talking about, I thought that was it at first... The one with the short sword where he breaks there leg than their neck... But it's in a counter.

The leg break only works when you counter strong attacks and then press the legs button.

Strong attacks are really easy to spot because they're just a lot slower than the others. There is one attack which IS slow but doesn't count as a strong attack, so that can put you off sometimes.

If you want to do this, just get a lone guard and hold down the parry button, watch all of his attacks, eventually he will try a really slow one. Counter this and start mashing the legs button and you will do it. Oh and make sure you keep pressing LT and RT the whole time, for some reason the leg break will not work if you let go of the triggers.

Breaking legs ~ Is that a final skill you earn towards the end of the game ?

I'm replaying a new game because after being stuck I didn't know what to do originally. If you see the fighting tutorial in the kingdom where you can practice moves, in mine, there seems to be room for one (or two ?) more skill(s) to earn. That's why I'm asking and because I've seen videos of Altair breaking legs during a demo play through from E3 07 or whichever it was.

I think you can do it once you obtain the ability to counter...

No offense, NECESARY_EVIL.
But unless I missed the message box which appears at each fighting skill earned in the tutorial area, I don't think I've seen that particular text when earning Counter, you know ?

Maybe I should just practice in the kingdom and see if it could be done. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the reply.

It doesn't say that cause breaking their legs i part of the counter... I think.

I'll open my eyes for that.
Have you seen it when you were playing it ?
