That's not a punch. That's a stab in the FACE. take out your switchblade and try to counter an attack. Brutal.

I think that's what you're talking about. I don't remember that trailer.

i want to do the move where you slap the guy in the face

11-17-2007, 11:16 PM
yeah i mean the slap in the face one

11-17-2007, 11:42 PM
sadly...i don't really know how to intiate combo attacks only counters. Can someone teach me how to do combo attacks. In the tutorial it tells you to press X when the sword comes into contact. But i dont really understand what that means.

11-17-2007, 11:55 PM
Simple my good man.

When you attack someone (With the long sword) for the first time, one of three things will happen and you'll hear either, "Shiiink, "TING, "CRAUCK followed by, AUGH!"

Now, the shiink sound is when the sword slides off another sword, this is usually when the opponent circles his sword with yours... this isn't what your looking for..

What you ARE looking for is the opponent being really stiff and when you attack you'll hear the tink! do it several times and you'll get the combo kill.. My favortie of course is the "Pimp slap then stab you through the base of your spine all the way through".... attack.

No, it's CRAUCK, CRAUCK, ohh, giggity-giggity, shazam.

11-18-2007, 06:02 AM
My favourite is the counter counter kill, I think it's when I attacked, but my opponent dodged, and came in with the counter - BUT - I was there with another counter and I tore straight through him... I love it 'cos it's so fluid. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

I think that one goes Tink, Tap, Craugh, Death.

11-18-2007, 06:08 AM
Yup, just time your attacks right and Altair will do the pimp slap. I'm giving the game an extra 15% because of that move (even though that takes it to like... 115% >_> )

My favourite would have to be a short sword combo. It's the one where you spin around them and slit their throat... I LOVE that gurgling noise http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Wow... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

I found the best weapon to be the hidden blade.
Why? Becauuse I knew that I wouldn't just be giving this wussy punch in the tummy... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Every counter = death. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Plus I went through Masyaf at the end all the way through using only the hidden blade. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Sticking a retractable blade into your master's head is o' so satisfying... especially when you do it fifty times in a row. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Are we all talking about the same thing? I'm not talking about the counter, on the ubidays i think there was a combo where he just slapped him and that was it

11-18-2007, 10:44 AM
When you are atacking wit hyour sword you need to time your hits properly. As your blade makes contact attack again and Altair might do the animation you are looking for.

NOTE: That is not the full animation, there is more to it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

11-18-2007, 10:45 AM
it went like this...Altair attacks but is blocked then Altair takes his free and and smacks the dude in the face andthats it not where he stabs him in the spine...sorry for the double post, my comp is stupid and won't show the edit post button

oh ok thanks grim http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Also he back hands if u counter a grab move.

11-18-2007, 12:20 PM
The thing I describe IT IS NOT A COUNTER... Don't hold the right trigger. You just attack and time your hits with the "TINK."

11-18-2007, 12:21 PM
hidden dagger combo.. you stab him in the chest somewhere.. punch him off the blade.. and slap him with the hidden blade in the face...

11-18-2007, 12:26 PM
GRYM u PLEB, this has not got a SPOILER alert in the name.. yet u just gave the ending away...

11-18-2007, 04:43 PM
yeah indeed tnx for giving away the ending :/

11-18-2007, 04:51 PM
There is alot of counters with the hidden blade where you do something 2 there face lol... One where he does a stab, A punch, And another stab and the last stab is in the head... Another where he stabs them in the side of the head, Grabs it with the other hand and throws them into the ground hard... And the one you're probably talking about where he stabs them in the neck or stomach (can't remember which) and them punches them in the head and they fly 2 the ground... Hidden blade counters are the best... lol.


I just realised you might be talking about the one with the long sword where he spins around and hits them in the face... they fall 2 the ground then you stab them in the stomach.. It's just a normal counter.

11-18-2007, 05:00 PM
No godamnit.... The Pimp SLAP is a combo move with the long sword. Not a counter.

11-18-2007, 05:07 PM
I've seen all the sword combos and all the sword counters and i'm pretty sure i haven't seen a combo where he slaps someone in the face...

11-18-2007, 05:30 PM
Trust me, it's there... It was one of the first ones I've ever did. Specifically, in Damascus with noob guards in the first district to go to... I promise you that there is a sword combo where you slap them in the face, they turn around and you stab them in the lowere back.

P.S. When he smacks the guy, it's loud, lol.

11-18-2007, 05:34 PM
Theres this thing you can do at the beggining when you enter the training arena in the Fortress. You attack and immediately press attack again and you punch the guy in the stomach, you never get that ability back it sucks!

Here's a question...

What the heck gave you the idea that you could go onto a forum of such a story-driven game and expect not to find any spoilers in unmarked threads after the game is released?

How smart are you? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

You are complaning to me about not putting a spoiler tag.

Aren't there spoilers in the titles of half the threads here? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

P.S. How can you misspell "Grim" when it is at the top of my spoilered post? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

11-19-2007, 05:11 PM
another question about the combo...i seem to always do it when i use a guard break, so do you have to guard break or is it just coincidence?

11-19-2007, 05:53 PM
You step and attack? That's a guard break, you don't have to step when you attack, Altair will run up to the enemy if he's far away. So it's just a coincidence. You just get a free hit on the guy if you do the guard break, but after that it just continues the combo.

Also, I noticed that certain death animations are played depending on how much damage you do to the guy before the animation is played.

Like when I'm fighting templars or high leveled bad guys, when I counter I usually uppercut them in the gut when I don't do any damage to them or do little damage.

11-19-2007, 06:17 PM
Remember you can use combo attacks too (theyre kick ***)

11-19-2007, 06:38 PM
no, i'm talking about a certain combo where you slap him and he turns around and you stab him through the spine...i'm just saying it usually happens during aguard break and i was wondering if it was coincidence that that happened

11-19-2007, 06:53 PM
yes, we've establiched combo attacks kick *** too, but thanatos, I didn't get what you tried to say before.. But yeah, it is a coincidence that when you do a guard break you pimp slap.

Evidence being: The pimp slap was one of my first combo moves, and with the exception of the first mission in Masyaf, you don't get guard break till a long time into the game.

11-19-2007, 07:35 PM
oh ok, well, i just found that out myself cause i just figured out in which direction you have to swing and get blocked to do the pimp slap combo, it goes from bottom left to top right if that makes any sense http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

11-20-2007, 05:39 PM
hahahaha yeah i love slapping guys in the face. its a combo move when you attack not counter press x to strike and press x exactly when your sword hits the guards and it will show the slap or some other sweet move

11-20-2007, 06:39 PM
Yeah, I explained that at least twice.

11-20-2007, 07:43 PM
What are people's tips for countering with hidden blade? Because if you stand there while the guard is coming at you, you'll get slashed, there's no way to block with your hands. I assume you have to dodge first and come in for the kill, but really, on the later levels with abour 10 or 15 soldiers surrounding you from all direcitons this kind of timing is immensely difficult!

PS, my favourite counter is the move with the short sword where you get them on their knees and then dig you blade into the top of their skull. The penetration sounds BRUTAL! Ouch.

11-20-2007, 08:00 PM
when you have your hidden lade, the only thing you can do is counter, i think...

Just hold the Right trigger and as soon as someone is coming at you, counter. That's it. You can't attack with the hidden blade unless you throw them down and then jump on them and stab in the neck.
