I'm stuck in one of the master assassin missions - I'm only allowed to disarm enemies but I can't find a proper move in the game tutorials nor do I find anything in the handbook.

Anyone knows the necessary key on the keyboard?

To perform a disarm, you need to be unarmed and do the "counter kill." To be unarmed, that means no sword, no hidden blade, but pure fists (that's 4 on the keyboard by default). The counter kill is High Profile + Weapon Arm when an enemy attacks you and that should disarm them and you steal their weapon. That should be Right Mouse + Left Mouse by default. Pressing 4 again when holding a picked up weapon will drop it.

  • Of course, I'm assuming you are actually using the Mouse + Keyboard combination and not just Keyboard only. Dec 8, 2011 at 12:28
  • Sure, it's Mouse and Keyboard! I gonna try this as soon as I'm back home! Thank you :)!

    @SaMu3L There isn't much more to it than that. The tutorial would basically consist of Jeff Mercado's answer. You can practice the moves in-game, though I don't recall the menu options needed to get there off the top of my head.

  • @SaMu3L It is imperative that you are unarmed first. It won't work unless you are. Then you have to perform the "counter-kill" action when an enemy is attacking you. That means holding high-profile and pressing attack the moment the enemy goes in and swings at you. Dec 22, 2011 at 18:59
