View Full Version : PS3 and Rope Darts in AC4

How do you kill/hang people with rope darts in AC4?
I throw them (with triangle button) and pull back with left stick, but the darts always seem to disconnect from the target. I've tried both holding and releasing the triangle button, but it makes no difference. Is there another button I should be pushing?
Regarding hanging - when standing on a cross wire (above a street), I haven't figured out how to jump and hang the target (like in ACIII). Again, the problem may be that I am not pushing the button that will made the dart stay connected to the target.

No need to respond. I figured it out. You do hold in the triangle button. So to hang a target, you wait or move to highlight the target, hold down the triangle button and walk backwards off the wire, branch or beam. On ground kills, the dart will disconnect when the target sees you. So best to shoot someone in the back while you are hiding in the bushes and can drag him all the way to you. A good alternative to whistling.
