View Full Version : Jumping Attacks?

11-16-2007, 04:33 AM
Hey everyone. So far I am loving this game, I've assassinated the first 4 targets and must say it's a blast. I was wondering if you can do a midair attack, like in the trailer when Altair leaps forward, taking out his assassin blade and killing the man on the hanging platform? I'm having trouble assassinating my targets, I usually end up chasing them down and daggering them http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

and I'm playing on the 360

there's another thread about this, but you're clearly mistaken =P

in the trailer, he jumps up from the stairs to the hanging deck, you can do that while on "high profile mode" and equipting the hiddenblade and assassinating, but i don't think there are any high altitude assassinations =)

o ok, cant you only use the hidden blade if they don't see you? I mean you can't use it while in combat can you? eh I'll go try it out right now for myself =P

You can counterattack with it and jump attack

I have managed to jump from one building to another and assassinated a guard. From a distance I locked on to him, got my trusty blade ready, when his back was turned I jumped at him and started battering the (X) button.


Never been so excited in my life! It is all about timing and making sure you know the distance that you jump. Once you have the exact distance right you can do jumping of buildings and assassinating people on the group. Takes a while to get the hang of, I spent ages falling onto beggers.

I am going to try and see if I can do a horse-back jump and get someone too http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

thanks guys

I think I just need to practice with the hidden blade or something because I have only killed 1 major target out of the 5 I've done so far with the hidden blade. I had the perfect chance on William in his fortress, but instead of jumping behind him when I lept from a scaffold, I landed on the table he was behind and Altair went into crouch http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gifhttp://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

I ended up just focusing on William even though his gaurds had me surrounded and just kept hacking with my sword until I hit http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

so far for my 5 major targets,
1st guy: Hidden Blade
2nd & 3rd: Chased until they tripped up and then daggered them
4th & 5th: Sword battles

hm, you can use the hidden blade in combat, but only when the guy is prone, meaning when he's on the ground, so you pretty much have to grab him, throw him, and then move over and use the hiddenblack and stick him. but it's really hard because when there's alot of guards on you, after you do a counter that prones the enemy, you might press attack again during the little cinematic clip, and that will make altair to attack another near target

well i just learnt how to do the hold R and sprint towards a gaurd then press X with the hidden blade to do the leaping assassination which looks sick. I used it on the 6th target, the one who's having the hanging sort of thing and the target's black I believe. I rushed the stage but couldnt turn the camera in time and ran past him http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif Gaurds came after me and before I knew it I was surrounded but the target wanted a piece of me too so he joined in on the circle and somehow I managed to leap onto him and assasinate him while he had his sword drawn in fight mode http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif
