The intro video shows Altair with a crossbow on his back, yet I have not received one after completing the game. Is it hidden somewhere in the game, or was that just left in the video to tease us?

    I'm pretty sure you've noticed, but for completeness' sake: The crossbow is in AC: Brotherhood. – Bart van Heukelom Apr 26 '11 at 12:02

You're not missing anything :)

The crossbow was replaced during development with the arguably more-versatile throwing knives.

  • Lame! They should have redone the intro movie. It really got my hopes up! – cowgod Jul 11 '10 at 3:22
  • I dunno, throwing knives ARE pretty boss... – GnomeSlice Oct 7 '10 at 13:15
  • Throwing knives are the ultimate! I love seeing them fly with air trails – Mugen Dec 14 '10 at 20:27

i saw on yt that there is an older version that u can play in it with crossbow but they made a new version and replaced the crossbow by knives based on history accuracy

    This doesn't add anything to the answer provided almost nine years ago. – Joachim May 24 '19 at 9:43
