    I have a few questions about the syringe. First off im sure there are tons of these threads but i honestly can't find any....Im not sure how much information has been released on this but i still have a few questions. For once is there just one kind of poisen that makes the guard flail around a while killing a few people and then he dies? Also a complaint I have is that in some of the videos it shows Ezio stabbing a brute with the syringe and blood splattering. The guard barely flinches and doesn't bother to check who stabbed him in the back . Perhaps it was the poisen itself that shocked him but in real life if the poisen wouldn't kill you instantly you should atleast be able to look around.... If you have any information on the syringe please tell!

    Hmmm, syringe? I've only heard of the poison being delivered by a blade, not a syringe. Well, I suppose Ubi wanted the use of poison to be incognito and sneaky. If they turned around everytime you used it, it would kind of defeat the purpose right? A lot of games do that. Sacrificing realism for fun.

    He meant the poison blade. There's no syringes, that would be infinitely more lame than poisoning a knife coming from below your wrist.

    And think of the last time you had a mosquito bite. Chances are, you didn't feel the mosquito actually biting you, but you still lost a little blood, and it obviously penetrated your skin. Poison blade works the same way, he doesn't try to kill you, only ***** you lightly enough to get the poison in your bloodstream.

    I wish Ezio can assassinate people like that. The way Altair does it is just too obvious. If Ezio had cool secret assassinations like that I would be happy.

    Yeah, you buy poison from the doctor, and then select to use the poison on your next attack using the weapon menu. You just ***** someone, and sit back and watch the chaos ensue. At least, that's what it's looking like judging from the gameplay videos that have been released. Btw, sbredflag, where did you get that cool animation?

    you already made a thread about this yesterday.... and this is how I answered:

    "basically on your left arm you have an extra little needle that has poison in/on it. when you go up to a guy and poke him with it he becomes delirious and goes crazy. He attacks others and eventually dies. He doesn't realize who and when he was attacked, so you can get away without getting harmed.

    The poison blade (as its called) is an upgrade you get sometime during the game, made by Leonardo Da Vinci for Ezio. You have to buy vials of poison which you can get from the street doctors."

    It's called the "poison needle", not blade. That's why. It uses the wrist-mount, just like the gun and the left hidden-blade, but it's a needle. A syringe. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    yes, if it would be a knife it would be a lot more obvious when you stab someone a needle (or syringe, whatever you want to call it) makes so much more sense...

    Ha, I deleted that post after rechecking the vignette. The vignette calls it a blade, but I keep hearing the devs call it a needle in interviews and such. Especially Patrice.

And they even prefered being captured instead of escaping.
