If you look at this picture above, the guards seem to be clutching at their ears. Now, they might just be protecting their heads -- but from what? There doesn't seem to be an explosion or anything, and their faces are screwed up as if in pain (from a very loud sound?)

Does this mean one of the 300 bomb types is sound? If so, how would the mechanics work?

Sorry if this has been mentioned. I just haven't seen this discussed anywhere on the forums.

It is a bomb as part of the new crafting system. You can see the "explosion" just below Ezio. There are apparently around 300 possible combinations to be made. Chances are it is something like a flashbang. Here is a demonstration of how they work (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LBtDrcIntk).

Yes, if you read my post you'll see I'm aware that there is a crafting system with 300 bomb types... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

It might be something like a flashbang, but I thought I'd just point out that it seems to mainly be focussed on producing sound. The explosion looks fairly dull and small for a flashbang.

There is such a thing as a "sonic" grenade that doesn't have so much of a flash, or possibly any at all, or it may just be in that picture, that the flash is already gone.

EDIT: Concussion grenades.

if you look closely the side of the guards facing the explosion is lit up, so there could have been a flash. Probably a bomb type to temporarily disable guards kinda like smoke bombs.

anyone else wondering how the crafting system is going to work, maybe you collect the materials and a black smith assembles it...

it be kinda cool to use a bomb like this, that just makes a loud sound to attract the attention of guards to a far off place so you can seek past

I don't think it's a "sound bomb", because the guards don't so much seem to try to cover their ears, but rather just put their hand(s) on their heads as if they're suffering from a headache.
A concussion grenade would still fit the bill though.

with the team having to think up 300 different types of bombs i can asure you there will be a sound bomb even if the bomb in the picture isn't 1 ( it looks like a sound bomb but i could be wrong)
