View Full Version : What's the weapon rating system for??

Has anyone else noticed absolutely no difference in the weapons you are holding, except the special for the gun/throwing heavy weapons? I mean when you can chain exocutions, does it really matter which weapon you use?

I've been looking all day to try and find a comprehensive guide to what the weapon rating system actually means in terms of observable game play differences. Plus, the hidden blades are the only weapon you can use to counter spears/brutes anyway, so why use anything but those??

I think I'm going to start a new game and use only the starter sword, see if it adds any difficulty what so ever...

Well, other than the difference in the kill animations, I'm fairly sure the short weapons kill a lot faster during the kill streaks than weapons like longswords. Other than that, it's just for variety http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
