View Full Version : Tackling and other moves: question

11-23-2009, 08:19 PM
i recently figured out if you tap circle once while running you will tackle a npc to the ground (i don't mean 'shove' them to the ground btw i mean tackle as in ezio umm how to word this 'football' or rugby tackles them to the ground).

Then i was jumping off a roof and i pressed something and i landed on a random npc, just to note here i didn't kill them i just landed on them with a cool animation much like in the original assassins creed trailer where altair leaps of the roof and lands on a npc.

i was wondering whether someone knew how do do this?

Yeah, if you hold high profile and press circle near the edge of a rooftop where there are civilians on the ground, Ezio will jump off and land on one of them, you don't have to control the jump he just selects a random person. It makes you not lose any health from falling too, so its kinda useful.

kinda seems from all the way up there it would kill or fataly wound the civilian or guard he was pouncing on

Oh I love doing this. Like jump assassinating without the blade.

I also like how you can assassinate with any weapon now. Other than the hidden blade assassinations, I love using the dagger. The dagger assassinations seem like a realistic way to assassinate someone without the hidden blade.
