View Full Version : Can't figure out Kill Streak x 5

09-18-2011, 01:36 PM
Ok ... so just when I thought I had completed everything, it appears there remains one more task.
I have completed the game along with every single activity possible with the exception of 1 (contrary to my last post).
I cannot complete the Guild Requirement of getting a 5 Kill Streak.

I have killed dozens of guards, several times amounting to many more than 5 guards but still don't get any count down. Usually I kill the first 5 within 90 seconds (I'm guessing).
I have tried doing it with a single weapon and with multiple weapons.
According to the Mercenaries "score board" for lack of a better description, I have achieved 3 of 10 required kill streaks. However, I have since killed AT LEAST 200 more guards (cumulative) without the score changing at all.
As such, I still have to kill minimum 5 guys, 7 more times but I must be missing something ??!!

What am I doing wrong ?
Must I only use one weapon ?
Can I use a Bow or Poison Darts or Smoke Bombs to assist in the count ?

Someone please tell me the trick to achieving this last requirement so I can move on (or start the whole game over again... and probably still have the same issue.
PS> If there is a Specific YouTube Video that Clearly illustrates how to achieve this requirement, please include a Link.

Thanks in Advance

PS> I realize I cannot lose any Health during the fight but can this issue have anything to do with wearing the Armour of Romulus ?

BTW, Is is the Romulus Armour that prevents me from using a Sword while on a Horse ?
"IF" I choose to revert back to the Seusenhofer Armour, can I then re-equipt myself with the Romulus Armor later (at the Blacksmith Shop).

you have to get a 5 kill chain

which means starting a streak and getting 5 consecutive kills

and you can't equip the armor of brutus at a black smith, u have to equip it at the hide out

You have to kill 5 in a row without taking any damage and the kills must be within a couple seconds of each other. If you get 4 in a row and then your last kill is more than 3 seconds after your last kill, you have to start over. Something like that.

The five kill streak is when you perform an execution streak in which at least 5 guards are killed. If you get hit, dodged or run out of guards the streak will end (it starts after you either attack a guard several times -- the number depends on the weapon being used -- or use counter attack to kill a guard). Essentially, you need to kill 5 guards with 5 attacks.

The best place to get this is the memory segment where you have rescued Katerina and are fighting the guards at the bridge by the Vatican. I find that normally each play through will give you at least three or four 5 kill streaks. You might be able to up that number if you break off streaks with the 5th kill.

Thanks to all who replied.
The information each of you provided will be very helpful because I wasn't able to find anything as definitive elsewhere.
There are several YouTube videos that show it being done, but no dialogue to explain what exactly is happening and why. Anything I have been doing looked pretty much the same but without the results.

Thanks again everyone and happy killing.
PS> I hope to try the Multiplayer aspect of this game some time soon.
