    There's that old AC2 magic

    I'm not sure anything will ever top the Acre cathedral climb from AC1.

    altair climbed so slowly and meticulously that getting to the top felt like an accomplishment, the series has only been getting faster since then

    It appears the victim was stabbed in the chest with a large bladed object, like the one I have strapped to my back and that nobody else in France seems to use. Did I mention the large spear strapped to my back in a totally inconspicuous way?

    Clearly the butler did it.

    How great would it be if one of the murders you solve had you as the perp

    You see chief, my theory is that he was running along and saw a red outline on them and thought fuck it, assassinated them in broad daylight and just kept running to a chest that was lying around which no one else had opened.

    And then, looking at these footprints, he randomly jumped on this here apple crate, swore loudly and ran off again.

    When you equip a rifle, it takes up your melee weapon slot too. So the butt of your rifle count as non-lethal.

  • ElderlycrawfishElderlycrawfish Registered User regular
    Non-lethal just means they roll on the ground dying, rather than just outright dying.

    Because I'm pretty sure hitting someone in the chest with a non-lethal spiked mace is gonna be just as lethal as a blade.

    Yes it acts as both. You can draw it like a sword and beat people with it then fire it at people at way father range than the pistols.

    I mean sure, beating templars with a rifle sounds like fun but they give you so many melee toys that it feels wrong to not go with one of those + pistol instead.

    The man running round in the purple leather coat and murdering people with the big shiny spear is just a normal citizen of France

    He definitely beats wholesale ass with an axe handle in Pale Rider

    Wait, did the Chevalier d'Eon identify as a woman?

    I thought it was still up in the air, historically speaking
