|From the Deep [Easter Egg]||98%|
|Description: In Santa Maria Delle Visitazione, in the Assassin's Tomb, you will come across a large flooded room just before one of the Armor of Altair seals. Pull the lever and peer into the water. Wait a minute or so and you will see a shadow below. Pull the lever again and peer into the murky depths once more and a tentacle will reach out to grab (and miss) Ezio.|

|Defeating larger or harder enemies||96%|
|*** This can only be done after learning the Disarm move. Sometimes you will run into the big "Golden Knights" or the men who just fight better than normal soldiers. These opponents usually have unique weapons such as lances or big axes. They can also deflect attacks and counter more often, resulting in you being killed. To take them out more easily, simply disarm yourself. Put your weapon away by pressing Down. When they attack, press X or Square to counter and disarm them. This usually works in one attempt. Quickly press press X or Square again to kill the unarmed man.|
|Assassins Creed 2 : Myth Maker Achievement and Trophy||96%|
| This video will show you all of the locations to unlock the Myth Maker Achievement and Trophy. Remember after you have found the trophies go back up to the villa and place the statues on the pedestals to acquire 2000F for each pedestal.|
| Description: Notoriety is just your wanted level like in other open world games. The higher it is, the closer to notorious you are. Notorious is the state where guards take one look at you and say "Get him!". You want to keep the symbol of a head inside the gauge white. Gaining notoriety is easy; just do criminal activities, assassinate in front of people, kill guards in general, run across rooftops, and even just bumping into some guards by accident. Losing notoriety is also easy. The game tells you the three methods of losing it: rip down posters, bribe heralds, and kill officials. The first is the easiest because those are most abundant. However, because of that, they also give the smallest returns (up to 25% of your notoriety bar per poster, or four posters if you are notorious). If you are that bad off, four posters can seem next to impossible. However, you will be jumping about a lot anyways and will be bound to find a couple of them. The 2nd method, heralds, is your middle ground, but it comes at a price: 500 Florins for up to 50% of the notoriety bar. The cost is 1,000 Florins if you are notorious. Do not be deterred by the cost. That cost turns into a very slight profit. The last method, the officials, give the best return, but are also difficult. Like the thieves and couriers that you chase down for cash, they run everywhere once they see you (up buildings, across beams, through crowds, and most especially towards guards). The reward is 75% of the bar for an official, but the time spent could have been better used ripping down posters and bribing heralds.|
If you accidentally kill someone in front of some guards, kill an archer and his body falls to the ground, or do something else that gains notoriety, this trick will allow you to get rid of up to half of it and gain some money, all without having to hunt down posters or officials. First, find a herald. He will be noisy and talking about you. Bribe the herald. He will take 500 Florins and you will lose up to 50% of maximum notoriety. If you have under that, there will be no notoriety remaining for you. Here is where this expense can be turned into a very slight profit. Pickpocket the Herald. You will gain about 3 to 5 notoriety back, maximum. This is handled easily by a poster. Most heralds have at least 3 to 5 Florins, and the money you gave them goes into their pocket, so you will gain your bribe back plus whatever they already had. It is not much, but it gets rid of the bulk of your notoriety. The useful part is, if you have anything over halfway along the first diagonal of the notoriety gauge, just use this trick and find a poster afterwards.
|Unlocking Fast Travel||96%|
|You start the game with only being able to go between cities or other locations via a horse. This is fun at first but would really be a pain once more locations are opened up in the game and you have to go back and forth between location a lot. You will be able to unlock and use fast travel stations in the game. These also appear on the map to find easy. Using this option does have a cost of 100 florins but it is worth that to transport to your destination instead of the long horse ride.|

|Defeating Rodrigo Borgia (The Spaniard)||95%|
| Description: There are a few things you should get before you go to Rome: The Armor of Altair, The Sword of Altair (or whichever weapon you prefer), Notched Cinquedea, Metal Cestus, both knife belt upgrades (as many as possible), medium and large medicine pouches (buy as much medicine as possible), and full smoke bombs.|
How to: The battle is divided into three stages. In the first stage you must assassinate him. Go down the ladder quietly. Do not jump down. Then begin blending in with everyone immediately. Go to the front, select your pistol, and lock on to Rodrigo. Hold [Action] until the thin beam appears and fire. In the 2nd stage you must fight him. You sit back and wait for your four Dopplegangers to finish or at least weaken him, but you can also join in the fight which is much more exciting. He attacks just like a brute; just tackle him as you would a normal villain. In the 3rd stage you must finish the job. After the cinematic, use Eagle Vision to find the switches to the vault. Follow the road down. Another cinematic starts, after which it is a fistfight from here on out. Just keep attacking him. The Metal Cestus will stay equipped and will kill him faster. Follow the onscreen prompt to finish the fight
|Glyphs, Treasures, & Feathers Locations||94%|
| Description: Maps to the Glyphs, Treasures, & Feathers Locations.|

|Blunt weapon (broom or hoe)||94%|
|Description: When you knock into a person with a broom or mop, pick it up. When you enter combat with it, the broom or mop will act as a mace, hammer, or other blunt weapon. It makes it seem as though you are cleaning up the trash. *** This can also be done with farmer's garden hoes.|
|Assassins Creed 2 "Glyph" Locations & Puzzle Solutions||94%|
| How to: Use your Eagle Vision to find the Glyph in the listed locations:|
The Truth File 1: While standing on a roof, it's on a wall at Santa Croce. Shaun puts it on the map for you. Solve the puzzle by choosing the paintings with an apple in them.
The Truth File 2: While standing on a roof, it's on a wall at Ospedale Degli Innocenti. Solve the puzzle more easily by rotating the circle puzzle pieces from smallest circle to the largest.
The Truth File 3: While standing on a roof, it's on a wall at La Rosa Colta. Solve the puzzle by highlighting the circular object in each photo.
The Truth File 4: While hanging from the roof, it's on a wall at Villa Auditore. Solve the puzzle by taking the hints literally.
The Truth File 5: In the bottom dwellings of Santa Maria Assunta, it's on a wall near pillars. Solve the puzzle by choosing the paintings with a sword in them.
The Truth File 6: While standing on a roof, it's on a wall at Torri Dei Salvucci. Solve the puzzle more easily by rotating the circle puzzle pieces from smallest circle to the largest, while keeping an eye on the two outer layers that will connect.
The Truth File 7: While standing on a roof, it's on a wall at Torre Del Diavolo. Solve the puzzle by choosing the paintings with red in them. I'm not sure if this has to be done in any specific order, if so it's: Christ Disrobed, Joseph, Jesus Christ, David and Goliath and Jason.
The Truth File 8: While standing on a roof, it's on a wall at San Lorenzo. Solve the puzzle by finding the Pieces of Eden (success is listed with a sound). Then putting the flame over Joan on the world map. And finally, by moving Rasputin's photo to the top of Czar Nicholas II's photo.
The Truth File 9: While standing on a roof, it's on a wall at Mercato Vecchio. Solve the puzzle by taking the hints literally, with the last one being 6=1.
The Truth File 10: While standing on a roof, it's on a wall at Monte Oliveto Maggiore. Solve the puzzle by not looking for the Eagle Apollo lander on the moon. When found, it's best to rotate the layers of the puzzle from the inside out until they all align, but note that inner layer 1 rotates on its own despite being connected to layer 4 as well in one instance, same story for layer 6. Lastly, the Piece of Eden is on the Moon's surface.
The Truth File 11: While standing on the floor, it's under a stone arch at Antico Teatro Romano. Solve the puzzle by highlighting the light bulbs. After that highlight the middle of the photo above the doorway. Then highlight Nikola Tesla's lap.
The Truth File 12: While standing on a roof (not the church tower itself), look down to the side of a wall attached to where you stand at Abbazia Di San Mercuriale. Solve the puzzle by aligning red 4 with gray 1 on the wheel and entering the related code. Then turn off all the lights on the globe. Select the orb in the middle of the next photo. Solve the last puzzle by lining up the wheel like this: 1=II. 2=III 3=I..
The Truth File 13: Climb the base lookout tower until you see it on part of the stone walling on Avamposto Veneziano. Solve the puzzle by lining up the wheel like this: 5=circle, square, square. 2=circle 3=triangle. Next press the red button so-to-speak. The last part you will find near the left-middle bottom of the letter.
The Truth File 14: Swim under the Ponte Di Rialto bridge, where you will find it on a wall near the edge of the water. Solve the puzzle by choosing the paintings with Gods in them: Jupiter, Zeus, Cupid, Swan (AKA Zeus again) and Europa.
The Truth File 15: While standing on a roof, it's on a higher up wall at Gilda Dei Ladri Di Venezia, right above a wooden hatch. Solve the puzzle by working from the inside out, and realizing that these layers are connected: 1 to 6, the middle two, and 4 to 5.
The Truth File 16: Climb up the Campanile Di San Marco bell tower, until you can climb in, at which point you will find it on the floor. Solve the puzzle by looking around on the map for the answer to appear. I'm not sure if this has to be done in any specific order, if so it's: Naples, Alaska, Greece and Tunguska. Then go to the staff and stab the photo with it.
The Truth File 17: Climb up the Torre Dell Orologio and on the floor you will find it. Solve the puzzle by lining up the wheel like this: 7=broken square symbol, 9=six-sided hourglass symbol, 1=square with little square inside of it. Then the attic on the top-right will reveal an Assassin symbol for you to ID.
The Truth File 18: While standing on a roof (not the highest roof), it's on a wall at San Pietro Di Castello. Solve the puzzle by lining up the wheel like this: 6=M or YYY, 0=Chalice symbol, 3=< <
The Truth File 19: It's on the back of one of the rounded-top walls that stick out on the side-parts of Scuola Grande Di San Marco. Solve the puzzle by choosing the paintings with a sun in them. I'm not sure if this has to be done in any specific order, if so it's: Aztec Calendar, Easter Gate, Sistine Chapel Ceiling, Nazca Textile and Book of the Dead. Then find the part of the sun photo that has the most radiation and ID it.
The Truth File 20: From the roof with a fire near it, it's there when you look down to a wall on the side of San Giacomo Di Rialto. Solve the puzzle by working from the inside out, and realizing that these layers are not connected: 2nd inner layer, 5th outer layer. Then ID the sun. Next you can line up the code wheel any way you want to complete the puzzle. In the final puzzle, move the cursor over the bones to change the skeleton from a monkey into a human.
|Assassins Creed 2 : Tomb Guide 3||94%|
| This video will show where and hot to open the 3rd tomb to unlock Altiars Armor.|
|Subject 16's Legacy||93%|
| Description: Throughout the game there are a 20 symbols which Subject 16 has hacked and put on the Abstergo Memory Core stolen by Lucy. They always will stay at the same location throughout the game. It takes a lot of time to find all these symbols that you can see only with Eagle Vision. You will then be put through a series of mini games for each symbol. Subject 16 says that after you find all twenty symbols and decipher them you will see and understand the truth.|
*** The symbols are not all on the ground level and are at random places. 2 are in Tuscan (one of which is on the 3rd floor of a viewpoint). Another is on the top left of the Assassin Home. There is also one in a stone place where Rodrigo betrays his man that you kill. It is under a wall on the side.
| Description: The following items can be unlocked by performing the actions below:|
Climb Leap Ability - Complete Rosa's mission "Monkey See, Monkey Do" in Sequence 7 to earn the climb leap ability. With this ability, you can make longer jumps while climbing, letting you grab hand holds that'd normally be out of reach.
Disarm Combat Technique - Complete Mario's "Evasive Maneuvers" mission in Sequence 5 to unlock the disarm technique. Disarms let you counter incoming attacks from weapons that are normally too heavy to counter (like axes).
|Get Guards to kill civilians||93%|
|How to: Poison a few guards, then throw coins around them. People will run up to pick up the coins, but the guards will hit them with their weapons. This works best with brutes.|
Seekers are soldiers with spears. The trick to Seekers is grappling them. Just try to grab them first and kill them to remove that threat quickly.
Brutes are the big armored soldiers. They are armed with two handed weapons such as axes and claymores. The trick to Brutes is to unarm them. Trying to reverse their moves will just result in you getting hurt if you have a weapon ready. You can take their weapons away from them and then kill them easily.
Groups of Enemies
When fighting a large group it is best to keep moving about so they do not surround you and attack from more than one side at once. The trick to fighting the group then is to keep your guard up and wait for one of them to attack and counter it. If there are Brutes or Seekers in the group it gets a bit tougher but the other tips listed here will help with those. Try to avoid Brutes or Seekers at first and focus on the others.
Usually Archers are a little threat and more of a nuisance but in some areas there are a lot of them scattered around. If you find yourself in a fight and at the same time there are archers shooting at you, try to break off the fight and run to an archer. This makes them drop their bow and draw their sword. The more fun approach is to position the soldiers in the archer's line of fire and have them do your dirty work and hurt the solders attacking you.
|Description: The horses in the game can be very useful other than the obvious use for travel. They can be ridden into a potential fight and dismounted. Lure your enemy to the rear of the horse and it will kick them, doing good damage. They also will follow you after you dismount them until you enter a city, making them easier to relocate.|
|Mario series reference||93%|
|When Sequence 3 starts and you are escorting Maria and Claudia to the villa, you will get ambushed by Pazzi and his men. You will be rescued by your Uncle Mario. When you first talk to him, he says "Don't you recognize me? Its-a me, Mario!"|
|Spear & Axe Reclamation||93%|
| How to: When countering enemies with the axe or spear, Ezio will lose the weapon as it will be impaled or buried in the target.|
You can easily reclaim the weapon by picking up the corpse and dropping it. The weapon embedded in the dead body will pop back out for re-use.
|Super Mario Bros. Reference [Easter Egg]||93%|
|Description: At the beginning Sequence 3, the character Mario exclaims "Itsa me, Mario!" A clear reference to the 52nd Governor of New York, Mario Cuomo. Or Super Mario. Your call!|

|AC2 Frequently Asked Questions||69%|
| 1) There is a viewpoint I just can't climb! There's no way to get up there!|
A) If it's Venice, then this is possible. Keep playing until you learn Climb
Leap. You can get up there after that. If it's earlier than Venice, then you
aren't looking hard enough. Be sure to climb around to another side of a tower
if you're stuck. Look all around you.
2) Disarm isn't working anymore, why?!
A) The small guards who wear some armor (not to be confused with Brutes) cannot
be disarmed sometimes until they are weakened.
3) How do I learn how to sweep enemies for the "Sweeper" Trophy?
A) Train at the training center later in the game (not sure when exactly it is
available) and pay a fee to learn Long Weapon training.
4) Are there any maps you can buy (like the treasure maps) that will show you
the location of all the feathers?
A) Unfortunately, none that I know of. You can check your progress though by
viewing the area maps and it will tell you how many feathers you have there.
Also, there are plenty of websites out there that have maps with the locations
so I suggest you check them out.
5) I'm in a city and there's this see-through white wall blocking my path!
A) The game will lock you out of certain areas until you progress the story
6) Are big weapons like the axe and spear stored at the Villa?
A) Yes, that's what the game says. You can never truly "buy" them and you can't
equip them primarily other than stealing them off an enemy. That doesn't really
explain why they're not visible at the display.
7) Where can I purchase Altair's sword?
A) You can only buy it from the blacksmith at the Villa. Be sure to have all
three renovations for the Blacksmith discounts because that is an expensive
8) Is there a part after the game where I can still collect things and do
unfinished side missions after I beat it?
A) Yes, you'll be able to still do all the side stuff after completing the
9) I have some Codex pages but I can't visit Leonardo. Why?
A) Near the beginning of the game, you won't be able to drop off Codex pages
other than the required times you must visit Leonardo. After a certain point
though, any time you have an encrypted Codex page, Leonardo's shop will appear
on your map.
10) How do I know where to find ______ where there is a glyph I need?
A) All important buildings for the most part, including glyph buildings will
appear dark grey on your map.
11) Can I start a new game+ or replay old missions?
A) No and no. It is sort of disappointing, more so the latter, but that's just
how it is.
12) I've done everything but I'm not at 100% sync?
A) I'm fairly sure you need all the Templar Lairs which can only be received
from the redeemable codes that come with the various editions of ACII. I think
only the Master Assassin's Edition has them all but they might come out as
DLC later. You might also need the Auditore Tomb from uPlay.
|In the assassin's tomb in Santa Maria Delle Visitazione, before the room where you get one of the seals required for the Armour of Altair, is a large room filled with water.
