View Full Version : Counter Steal?

11-22-2011, 11:45 AM
In the guide it mentions that to get a certain Thief Achievement you must perform a "Counter Steal" and I think it mentions an amount of 256 or so A.
My question is, how does one Counter Steal? Did a cursory search of the Forum and found it mentioned only once, with no explanation on how to perform it. My only guess is to let the Pick Pocket steal from you and then chase him down and get the money back???

No, no, no. When you've got the hookblade out and are prepared to do a counter you press triangle instead of square, I'm not sure what the controls for xbox are, but it's the top button (I think y?)
It should tell you at the top of the screen when in a counter position.
Also sometimes guards will counter it, if this happens just try again.

You perform it just like a counter kill, but you press the "Secondary weapon" button (Y at Xbox, triangle at Playstation I presume) instead of the "Attack" button).

Counter steals are easy and you can do it with any weapon or bare hands as well i believe.
And it should show up on the screen what button to press if you are locked on the target
