View Full Version : Equestrian question

09-02-2009, 03:08 PM
So I'm sure a lot of people tried the leaping from a horse, switching to stealth blade, and trying to stab in AC1. As you know, this doesn't ever work.
I haven't heard any discussion about it at ALL, but is it possible that AC2 has horse-to-assassinate as one of the many new location-sensitive ways to kill??

It's possible to assassinate from anywhere. Patrice said it in the first gameplay video.

I just hope they really mean "everywhere" and weren't just exaggerating. Cuz nothing screams "I'm lookin for a fight" quite like riding up at full speed, jumping forward (leaving your steed to plow through some innocent civilians) and plowing a blade through the head of one of those smarmy crossed-arms you're-not-getting-in guards.

greatly named thread is great. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

also, horse assassinations in ac1 aren't that hard you gotta jump from the horse.

To the best of my knowledge, you can't assassinate from that jump though, since it seems like you can't start an assassination midair in AC1. The best you can do is leap from the horse and land right in front of your target. Or is this actually possible? If it is, i'm gonna try it til i get it right.

yeah, you just have to land on the dude pretty perfectly.

I didnt' take the time to watch those videos so forgive me if I'm repeating what they said. It is possible but very difficult. You have to jump off the horse at the right distance. While in the air you have to lock onto the one you want to kill, select the hidden blade, hold high profile, hold the analog stick in the direction of the target, and mash the attack button until you hit the ground. Note that this is all done in the air. It looks good if you can nail it but it is pretty hard. When you try it in the kingdom it comes down to luck half of the time because sometimes you will be exposed while you're in the air and then the target will block the strike.

the real equestrian question involves the suggestion of fallation and then digestion?

(much dirtier than I intended it to be lol)

I hope you can ride up to the guy keep going, and stab him and drag him with you. I really hope we have to actually do assassin stuff such as hiding bodies, stuff like that, the first one wasnt really that assassiny but i love it ;D

Oh...just as I thought. I can do that, but I was talking about actual horse-to-assassinate without touching the ground. Not horse-to-ground-then-really-quickly-to-assassinate.

Another shot just moments before the assassination:
The motorcade was moving slow enough for Altair to keep up.

I doubt it. Not at the speed Altair walks.
