View Full Version : Brace-blade counter

05-09-2008, 07:37 PM
I've seen several movie clips of Altair drawing a sword, deflecting a blow then reposting with his brace-blade, it's an instant kill.
Any idea how to do it? do you just counter with your sword and hit the weapon switch at the right time?

I believe it's a skill you receive later in the game

It's not because you don't start with it, remember he was the highest rank till he got demoted, so if he could do it then he'd re-learn to do it later.
I think it's just a matter of timing, I've never done it so I want to know if it can be done, it would be a lot of help.

all right let's see.
usually i switch to hidden blade, then the guy swings and then i hit counter -- takes practice, i still get hit sometimes. best done if you got 1 or 2 guys only. anymore and it's an impossibility.

I disagree, I think it's something to do with the response time of your TV. On my Xbox I can do it just fine 90% but I find it much harder at my friends house (same thing goes for Guitar Hero)

How would your TV affect it?

I managed to do it surrounded by 5 guys. I stood there in a defensive position waiting for one guy to attack and when he did I held down RT and X and countered. It was great!
