A recurring theme in the Stylish Assassination series is the "air to assassinate" move. Both Ubisoft and Prima hint that it's possible but neither elaborate on how or even when you can do it. An internet search reveals only partial answers and misinformation ("press X while in the air" pffft Puzzled).

Most Templars are harder to find than they are to stealth assassinate. In cities they tend to stand in front of walls. Start from the roof and climb down (or Drop and Grasp) the wall above them. When your Control HUD says "assassinate" hit that button (you may have to hold the Right Trigger for a High Profile air to assassinate). Other Templars, particularly in the Kingdom, have a blind side. Approach from the correct direction hugging that wall and you will be able to sneak up behind them. If he has a shelter over his head, get on it and drop into his blind spot.

You all know by now that I'm a big fan of air to assassinate. Ubisoft must have rushed it in at the last minute because both they and Prima failed to document how to do it. Whenever someone on the internet asks for help, at least one well intentioned player comes to their aid with advice like, "Jump at your target and hit the attack button when you get close." That's what I call a "jump assassinate" (or "stunt assassinate" if the fall is high enough to cause partial desynchronization). Air to assassinate is actually easier and more reliable. The problem with jump assassinate is you have to judge where you will land and make sure it's close to the target. I usually end up jumping way over the target's head.

SPOILER ALERT: This is a walkthrough for the assassination of Robert de Sable, the ninth target. If you haven't completed that mission yet, I recommend you turn back now.

Let's do this one in total stealth fashion like we did Abu'l Nuqoud. Get in, assassinate Sibrand, and get out of the docks area, all without ever becoming Exposed (flashing yellow or red icon). I'll throw in a mini air to assassinate because I can't help myself. Big smile

This is the only way I know how to assassinate Majd Addin while remaining Anonymous both before and after the kill. The strategy is based on a new exploit I found, which I call the "broken timeline exploit."

Fahrenheit 1191: Jubair Al Hakim

I have no idea what Jubair Al Hakim is doing in Memory Block 5 and not, say, Memory Block 3. In my opinion he's second only to Tamir in terms of being easy to assassinate. If you still haven't got your "Blade in the Crowd" achievement this may be your last opportunity, so follow the advice below under ASSASSINATION. If you're looking for some excitement, follow the HUNT section wherein I try to make something interesting happen.
