Sure. Just get someone to knock your weapon out of your hand in battle and don't pick up another.

The sword is very easy to get rid of. Just go to the villa training area and select the picking up weapons tutorial. After completing it you should have no sword. The dagger is a bit harder, you have to get a brute to knock it out of your hand with one of their special moves. The easiest way to do this is to get a brute alone and block all of his attacks, and after a while he will do the flourish-y one that knocks the weapon out of your hand. After that DON'T PICK UP ANY OTHER WEAPONS. If you pick up a weapon from the ground or disarm someone, that automatically becomes your default weapon.

After that feel free to pic up 2 handed weapons though.

Yeah, sorry forgot to mention that. Two handed weapons cannot be sheathed, so you're fine picking them up, it wont give you a weapon.

Can you go around with no weapons? Why would you want to?

I'd like to be able to get rid of the sword, and just carry the AX, but as soon as you start to run, you drop it.http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Interesting thing you can do if you go around with no sword: Disarm a Seeker to get his polearm, then counter-kill a Brute so that you get the animation where he snaps your polearm in two, and you stab him with both ends.

After that, if you carry the Brute's body, when you pick him up the two ends of the polearm will fall out of him. Throw the body away and now you can pick up either end of the broken polearm - the end with the blade on acts like a sword and the other end acts like a mace - and since you have no sword equipped then Ezio will sheath it and you can carry around that half of the broken polearm as your primary weapon. Its pretty cool.

Note, though, that you can't cause the game to load, such as going to a different city, because the game doesn't recognise the half of a polearm as a weapon, and so you'll spawn with no main weapon again.


Speaking of being disarmed though, I was once on that boat thats a restricted area in Venice, where you get treasure thats guarded by two brutes. I felt like loosing my sword for a bit so after I killed the first one, I stood next to the edge of the boat and kept dodging/deflecting the other Brute until he did the disarm, knocking my sword out of my hand and over the edge of the boat, into the water. It looked so f-ing cool. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
