Here's my first AC:U video (and hopefully the first of many) on the target from sequence 8 memory 2.

The setup and execution of it are pretty obvious but there a a few things I'd like to add:

- I got Rouille at the target spot by having him chase me when in conflict, I didn't include this in the video because it takes a while and it isn't that interesting
- I wore chest armour that increased my health (instead of the more stealthy armour) because he will sometimes try to shoot you while chasing and those can be fatal really quickly.
- When I was being chased by Rouille I did my best to avoid bluecoat soldiers since they will engage Rouille and sometimes for no reason Rouille will then start running around randomly and not coming into conflict with Arno anymore. This can however be fixed by throwing a stun grenade on him.
- I had rouille fall on the little market stand next to the chateau because if he falls directly onto the ground the fall will "kill" him and I can only finish him off with the hidden blade.
- I chose the Bastille as an eagle strike point because it currently is the only place where I can consistently perform this move.
- The eagle strike might not be a 100 percent fluent but this can be attributed to the fact that Arno needs time to grip the ledge and when I tried making the jump and turning the camera at the same time Arno wouldn't grasp the ledge and I would desync.

Hope you guys enjoy the video.

Last week: Eagle Strike is impossible!

This week: Eagle Strike, suckas.

I feel like Altair bein' stripped down and havin' to kill nine dudes.
I just hope I never have to fight stabguy wielding an Apple of Eden. I legit could not manage that.
LOOK WHAT THESE RECENT GAMES HAVE MADE ME DO.
I actually forgot the power of the Creed for long enough to make a horrid mistake. Ack. >.<

@Video, damn, that's a sexy Eagle Strike. And I'm so glad they are possible.

Thanks!

I'm also glad that it is possible to do them since it's one of the few creative/cool kills I can usually think of myself when thinking of ways to assassinate targets.

Glad I already reached this part of the game. Now I want to know what would happen if a target falls in water.

You'll have to find a specific spot to get them to fall in then because the targets won't fall of every edge when countered. For example when I was trying to get the target in the empty moat surrounding the bastille I tried knocking him off one the few bridges it has but he just wouldn't fall of.
