Assassin's Creed 2 Hints & Tips
Assassin's Creed 2 is the squeal to the widely successful Assassin's Creed. However, there have been numerous changes to the game. One of these changes is the fact that you no longer play as Altaïr instead a man named Ezio. On top of this, there are numerous appearances by some of the most famous people ever to have lived, such as Leonardo Da Vinci!
A game like Assassin's Creed 2 is quite difficult, especially when you want to get everything the game has to offer, that is why I have created this hints page, to help you. So here are a few hints to help you.
The Cape and Hammer
Axes and Spears
If you lose your axe or spear while attacking an enemy, once the enemy is dead pick up the corpse and then quickly drop it. If this works you should have your weapon back and ready to use. This works as many times as required.
Unlockable Skills and Items
There are 2 unlockable skills in the game: The Climb Leap (which lets you jump further and allows you to grab onto otherwise unreachable objects) and Disarm (which allows you to block and counter attacks from weapons that are too heavy to counter normally). Climb Leap can be unlocked by completing the mission in Sequence 7 'Monkey See, Monkey Do', and Disarm can be unlocked by completing the mission 'Evasive Manoeuvres' in Sequence 5.
There are also 2 unlockable items which you can receive in the game. They are the Condotierro War Hammer and the Auditore Cape. They both require you to collect feathers in the box in your villa. To get the cape, you need to get 100 feathers in the box, and then talk to your Mother. To get the hammer, you need to get 50 feathers in the box, and then buy the item from the blacksmith's shop in Villa Monteriggioni, for 30,600 florins.
