View Full Version : Horse Whistle Always Disappears

I don't know if anyone has noticed, but when you select Horse Whistle on your secondary slot it will always change to a weapon once you've mounted the horse. It's extremely annoying when you're constantly mounting and unmount. I wish Ubisoft would patch this so that it stays on the selection no matter what. You should be able to have full control how you want your tool & weapons.

I too found this to be annoying. Seems they didn't really play-test their game - or there wasn't enough time to improve a lot of little annoying details like this one -, otherwise such deficits in functionality shouldn't happen with a capable developer...

It is not only the horse whistle. Every time I fast travel somewhere my weapon selection changes to some kind of default setting. For example, if I have chosen hidden blade as my weapon and smoke bombs as my tool, next thing I know once I arrive, let's say, in Boston, my weapon is being changed automatically to tomahawk and the tool to something else, don't recall exactly what. Exactly the same happens after cinematics. I start with the hidden blade and after cinematics have ended I am back to tomahawk.

Just stop it! It is just stupid and irritating. I don't want the game to make decisions for me!

never happened to me. If I assign the Horse whistle to 4, it stays on 4.

It is not about the weapon/tool assigned to a specific key, but rather about the game changing your current selections.

For me it looks like bad but intentional feature. Since you cant use whistle while being on a horse it changes to a "more usefull" stuff (usually pistol).

Ah, yes. You are quite right, Anykeyer. The "default" weapon is pistol. Thanks for reminding me. :)
However, I have to strongly disagree with Ubisoft. The game shouldn't make any decisions for me.

True, but you can't use your sword while riding horseback either, why can that be equipped and stay on the selection then? Really stupid IMO.

I don't understand why developers don't get it, we want more control period. People have always hated being told what they should or shouldn't have.

Yeah it gets frustrating. I always have to buy snares & bait after I've completed a mission. My smoke bombs were also confiscated sometime during the game & the game never gave me the option to repurchase them, It's probably a bug. I remember in the previous titles every time Ezio took a pee I'd have to repurchase his parachutes. I don't know if it was done intentionally or not but it was very silly & pointless if it was intentional..

The parachute bug was just this, a bug they never fixed.
