View Full Version : Why can't Kenway Swan Dive?

03-16-2014, 11:21 PM

I'm on the prologue chasing the Assassin on the island. But I can't swan dive from the tower into the palm leaned or into the water. He just won't jump with spade bar (on PC).

What's up with that? I have to hang and jump down but I've seen YouTube videos where he is diving at this early point in the game.

Is a special skill needed?

Not all palm trees and high places allow for the "leap of faith". When they do, it will happen, otherwise not so much.

Check this Youtube walkthrough part 1:


At 8.16, Edward is clearly doing a Swan Dive into the water from the tower structure type thing. I couldn't do that.

I think that the video is on a console. so is the game different on different systems?

You need to be pressing towards deep enough water or a divable object like a haystack below and it will happen.

Just found it, to do 'leap of faith' press Shift (free running) and Space bar (jump) and W from a suitable area to jump into water, hay or palm leaves.
