View Full Version : Can't counter a spear?

I cannot counter a spear with my hidden blade in AC Revelations. I used to be able to counter it in AC Brotherhood, thought it would be the same???? I did however find an alernative....you have to counter steal and then attack and it usually takes them out. I understand it makes fighting a little more challenging, but when you have several Janasaries and several spear holders mixed with brutes and militia its NUTZ. It would've been nice to have the hidden blade counter spears.

You can't counter spears with anything anymore, not even with another spear.

This is just Ubisoft's ham-fisted attempt at difficulty

You can dodge a spear and attack until you get a Combo Kill however.

You can also disarm and use their own spears against them.

It just doesn't make sense that you could do it in previous games and now somehow Ezio has lost the ability to do it

Dude got old I guess. Agree with the disarm suggestion...if u can't counter 'em, rip it out of his hands and smack him in the face with it. Hook & throw also nice.

You should be able to disarm them, or counter with another spear, perhaps your timing is off?

I was sad when I found this out. The spear-spear counter animation was one of the most awesome in the entire game.

Plus, it makes seekers really irritating to fight now.
