Tell us your favourite weapons and why they are your favourite. Also tell us your favourite counter(if it is a combat weapon, could be the throing knife or hidden blade) to do with them (cos counters are really the only attack I use)

Fave Weapon:
Short Blade(Not Hidden One)
Reasons:
It is basically the sword, but has cooler counter moves.
Fave Counter: The one where he knocks him about 3 or 4 times until hes on his knees, and Altair brings the short blade down to crunch through his skull, thus making crunchy sounds, and making me smile with glee. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I like the short blade because it has some awesome combo-kill animations, but by far, the hidden blade has the best counters

(along with comments from the guards like: "How is this possible!!?!?!" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif)

Lol, you're kinda late for six months.
But just to answer the question:
Weapon: SwitchBlade
Why: Hit the switch, get the blade, stab the neck, run away.(wow you can say that in the rythm http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif )

Hidden blade got cool counters but you can't decide what to do while in the counter already with it. With other weapons you can decide if you want to slash them, kick them etc by pressing different buttons

SwitchBlade, because it makes the swordfights challenging.

the sword. cuz with it i have much more control and i am not crippled to being able to counter only. the short blade is also like that but i just prefer the swing or a sword and it's counters.

plus its slightly more affective though affectiveness is the last thing i need in an easy game like AC.

none other than short blade, because the counters are a lot more amazing. My favorite is definitely when he stabs the foot and comes up to slash the head.

But I'm also a big fan of breaking legs. Never gets old hearing them scream for help.

Jack Thompson would actually try to help them...

has to be the hidden blade. I would give my finger, nay, my arm for a chance at a blade like that. just walking down the street... someone comes up behind.. bang! slam it into his neck or chest. hehe...

The short blade definitely, but I hate accidentally throwing my knives.

I think I'd still want my arm. Giving up your ring finger so it can rest on the open blade is definitely a cool honor badge.

What's wrong with accidently throwing knives? Just an insta-kill. But after you get the "dodge", switchblade becomes easy. You can dodge them when you don't have time to counter. So, switchblade and the short sword for quick attacks and good counters.

But most effective weapon? Throwing. It works almost everytime, and if you're at a roof or near the water..

I like all the weapons really, if I get into a big fight, with say 8+ guards, generally I will start with my sword, because it has 2 damage upgrades, then when I take out a few people and theres 5 or so I will use my short blade which has 2 damage upgrades, I move around a lot with short blade and use the throwing knives with it to.

Then when theres just a few people, say 3 or less, I use the hidden blade http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

Sometimes I punch em to, but as theres no punching combo or anything its damn hard to kill em.

It's actually REALLY easy to kill them with punching. If it's two guards, you can easily take care of them both without getting hit once.

Yes, the guards don't even strike back before two of them are down.

can you actually use the hidden blade in full-out combat? I think that's what i'm reading in some places.

There's nothing wrong with "accidentally" throwing knives actually at a target, if and when it does so. It's another thing when I've just killed a guy, and I click to swing at the next, and my guy throws a knife instead, and sometimes at no one. Or worse, if it's in a crowded area and he throws a bloody knife and it misses the guy and kills an innocent.

favorite weapon: the fist.

it's just funny to beat an armed guard with your fist, and win the fight. you'd think it would hurt quite a bit to punch helmets and chainmail, but Altair's fist is invincible!

same for killing innocents. not that i support that kind of disturbing behavior or anything. but the fist is just funny to use. i think it's because he doesn't fight the way one would if they were boxing...he just swings one fist repeatedly
