This post is dedicated to all of the gunpowder, blade sharpened, hardcore weapons in Assassin’s Creed III. Each of these weapons have different attributes that kill enemies in different ways or allow Connar to traverse the colonial lands of America in a different way. If you need anymore insight into these different weapons hit us up in the comments. Know something we don’t know? Help us out in the comments and we will add it to our post and give you credit!
The melee weapons are the bread and butter of the Assassin’s Creed series. These weapons have interesting animations when you can get a good combat flow going. Parrying and attacking leads to instant death even to top ranked guards that have a ton of health. Learn these weapons well and look out for the weapons that are only available from a couple of the pre-order bonuses.
The Tomahawk in Assassin’s Creed III seems to be the most iconic weapon in the game. In every picture and trailer Connar is using the weapon in some way. It can be used to on wires that hang in the cities and can also be dual wielded.
The Hidden Blade in Assassin’s Creed III is the most used weapon in the series. This weapon close range is deadly and one of the best ways to have a weapon ready without being seen. The weapon is again important in this series. There is another use for the hidden blade in this game. You can detach the blade from your hands and throw it at enemies for a different kill.
The Sawtooth Sword in Assassin’s Creed III is a close range heavy damage dealing weapon. The sword is unlocked after playing the Lost Myan Ruins mission. Unfortunately this mission is only available in some special edition boxes. Gamestop also has codes for the Lost Mayan Ruins mission if you pre-ordered the game.
Obwandiyag’s War Club:
The Obwandiyag’s War Club in Assassin’s Creed III is another close ranged weapon in the game. The club has new animations compared to the sword and other melee weapons. The club is only available after finishing the Ghost of War mission. The mission is only available to those who pre-ordered Assassin’s Creed III through Best Buy.
The long ranged weapons are nice in a pinch. They allow Connar to take out enemies before a group has a chance to surround you or when you need to kill an enemy fast and get out of the way. Especially with the surrounding woods and buildings cover can be easy to come by to get off a good shot.
The Rope Dart in Assassin’s Creed III is used like a grappling hook. One of the highlighted moves in trailers showed Connar hooking enemies with the Rope Dart and hanging them from tree limbs. The Rope Dart hang is a silent kill that does not make any sound. This weapon can also be used to pull enemies off of horses.
Bow and Arrow:
The Bow and Arrow in Assassin’s Creed III is a long ranged weapon that can be used in stealth. Trailers during E3 showed Connar using the bow during hunting sections. The bow and arrow can also be used as a long ranged weapon against enemies. It has a much quicker reload time compared to the pistol and musket listed bellow.
The Pistol in Assassin’s Creed III is a medium ranged weapon. The pistol can take out a limited amount of health and can be used effectively as a secondary weapon. The pistol can be dual wielded later in the game.
The Musket in Assassin’s Creed III is used as both a melee and ranged weapon. The bayonet at the end of the rifle has kill animation for assassinations. The reload time on the Musket is extremely long and often not usable after the first shot.
