    OK..., I'm just starting another playthrough of ACB in prep for ACR's story an have really 2 questions bout each ACB/ACR....

    First, I have heard..., but like AC2/Brotherhood..., will ACR begin directly after the end of brotherhood? I watched the narrative trailer of Ezio's letter to Claudia an he mentions of "After leaving for Acre 10 months ago" So I'm (an I hate doing so...,) But I'm assuming no, but a question never asked is a dumb one. Now on to the thread title question...

    As I said, just started ACB blah...blah..., blah..., so to get this achievement, do I need to playthrough to the Da Vinci Disappearance to get the achievement or can it be done anytime. Cause my main goal here is to "Play catch-up" so I better understand the ACR story (if in fact it does start off where brotherhood ends) an may not touch ACB until after ACR.

    Thanks in advance...

    The Clowning around achievement is the one where you have to beat-up (not kill) 5 harlequins which are either near water or in a dangerous postion to being drowned. I know the location of all 5, but each time I go there (either night er day) they're are not there. So as I said, since I'm only on seq 4 (as of now) that has lead me to think maybe it's only during the Da Vinci DLC which I do have an can access it, but choose to wait till the main story is complete.

    OK.... While waiting to find out bout the clowning around achievement..., I decided to attempt the strong arm achievement, (Throw a Heavy, a Long, and a smoke bomb 10m at a group of guards). I've done this achievement 5 times (correctly), but lo an behold the achievement did NOT kick in. Granted..., I ateempted it in Sequence 5 an not the DLC, could that have any bearing on why these achievements are not kicking in.

    ... I've never heard of the clowing around one. As for the other it shouldn't matter where or when you do it. If you did correctly it should pop up.

    The Harlequins are around the water areas of the Tevere (Tiber). The 5th one is by the Templar Tower near Bartolomeo's barracks. It's up on a hill overlooking the water.

    You'll need to use your fists to get all 5 beat up, can't kill'em but if you do, they respawn after a bit.
