Some1 made mention of a counter kill. I am of course thinking of an Altair counter kill that Ezio used in AC2 to interrupt attacks and in ACB to chain multiple kills re: Long Kill Streak. Is there a traditional counter kill that is not just a block in AC4?

You do the block and then attack back, this will allow you to start a kill chain. It's the same as AC3.

And I discovered you can continue this double kill streak too, as long as the first person you target is a lower level enemy.

Man, I'm so happy they changed the HUD back into a more classic-style HUD than the one in AC3. Never really liked the changes for the HUD in AC3.

Agreed, my only complaint is optional objectives are on the right side of the screen and easy to miss, instead of the left with the main mission objective.
