The campaign in Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood continues the story from Assassin’s Creed II with Ezio Auditore trying to stop the Templars from controlling all of Italy. This time Ezio is in Rome and has a lot more enemies to worry about. Fortunately, you also have new weapons, abilities and tactics to deal with the Templars in your way. With a large game world and a lot of side missions in the Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood’s campaign it can be easy to get lost or confused. To help get started here are some tips and hints to help keep that from happening.
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Campaign Tips – Fighting
Many times in Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood you can avoid fights by being stealthy, but when it does come time to fight the enemies can quickly surround you if you are not careful. When you need to face a large group enemies start by picking off a few from a distance with your gun or crossbow. Then climb up to a rooftop so that the enemies have to come up one at a time to get at you. If there are no buildings available use the Right Trigger to block incoming attacks. Wait until the health bar flashes above an enemy, indicating they are about to attack, and then hit the counter button to reverse their attack and finish them off with one move. You do not have to be facing the attacking enemy for the counter to work.
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Campaign Tips – Rebuilding
After the first couple missions in Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood you will arrive in Rome. One you reach this point there are a lot of vendors and structures in need of repair. Spend your money on rebuilding them as you can as early as possible. As you repair the building in Rome you earn income from them and get discounts from the merchants using the repaired buildings. By getting all of Rome repaired early you will have plenty of extra money to buy armor and weapons as they become available through the rest of the campaign.
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Campaign Tips – Guilds
Also in Rome, you have side quests available to help the courtesans, thieves and mercenaries. By doing these side quests early you can make the rest of the Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood campaign much easier. Doing these side quests unlocks the ability to have the guilds assist you throughout the rest of Rome. All three of the guilds are great for distracting guards and earning extra money. You can finish the game without the help of the guilds but it is much more difficult and frustrating.
