Assassin’s Creed Origins
Advanced Tool Guide
Smoke Screen // Smoke Bomb

The Smoke Bomb in Assassin’s Creed Origins is a contextual item that is far more powerful than some players give it credit for. This video is for them, and for everyone else who wishes they could do more with it. You can. ;]

The Skill:
- Drop Smoke by pressing Triangle/Y/R immediately after a Dodge or Melee Attack.
- You can do this any time.
- LV2 // Damage Passive allows Smoke to Harm enemies and ground them.

Stealth:
- Spam Smoke to safely cross open space.
- Use it as a panic button when you see Detection and you’re not feeling safe enough to cover away in time.
- Drop it off edges, to cloud the area you’ll attack into.
- - With Damage, you can use this as extra Damage to kill enemies, especially clustered groups when you’re above them.
- Make aiming with a Bow or Tool safe, by clouding your current cover with Smoke, then aiming out.

Combat:
- LV1 Smoke lets you stop enemies from running and attacking. They may still stumble around, but you can get free damage on them, or begin Sleeping them for Assassinations.
- LV2 Smoke lets you Damage everyone around you, and throw them to the ground. From here you can get free damage on them, or begin Sleeping them for Assassinations. LV2 Smoke can be spammed repeatedly to efficiently harvest a large group of enemies.
- Smoke can be used to Escape Conflict.

Thanks so much, Aurel. I'm at work most of the day tomorrow, but Sleep Darts are coming immediately after.

Sorry about the delay. I'm way behind on my front-paging duties.

I reach in my pocket, pull out some dough. Girl acting like she never seen a $10 before.

To add: smoke bomb AoE to enemies above you.

I was replaying the mission where you have to kill the archers in Sais... I was under them and thought... "Maybe AoE goes up in radius too..." And it does. I lunged into the wall below them and dropped smokes until the archers dropped. So yeah, smoke bomb AoE can go to guys above you too.
