View Full Version : Breaking Legs in AC2?

I remember back in AC1 that there were advanced counters where you could break an enemies legs if you wanted to. I was wondering if there were any advanced counters like that in AC2. Thank you

i think the short blade counter or combo where you break the guys leg then his neck was still in ac2.

i miss the combat from AC1, that stuff was the bees knees.

Thanks Whistle. Im currently watching a Let's Play of AC1 (I played it before but just was in a mood to watch it) and I remembered breaking an enemies legs by pressing "x" after a counter. Didn't know why they made it "Auto" in AC2 but whatever lol.

Another thing I have been having problems with on my replay of AC2 is the "Standing" High Profile Hidden Blade kill while in front of the enemy (Sticks the hidden blade through the neck). He constantly does the jumping animation kill instead of the one he is "supposed" to do.

combat in AC2 was annoying and tedious. there was no challenge, it was just time consuming. 30 brutes? no problem, itll just take a long time. in AC1, if you got one templar on you, it could be game over.

although by the end of a playthough, i usually had the timing down good enough to do the whole last level with no trouble which made me feel awesome when i plowed through dozens of guys like some sort of unstoppable porn star.

Oh God. One Templar was pure murder, and if you were stupid enough to try and flee, you occasionally ran into another one of those buggers. I just did my best to dodge dodge dodge until he grabbed me, counter grab, and then Hidden Blade when he's on the ground, or push my luck and go for the grab. I never engaged in swordplay with a Templar, they were far too good.

Agree about the timing. Even in AC, I finally figured out the timing so I could counter kill with the hidden blades (that's how I finished off Al Mualim). Also, I love your pornstar comment.
