Note: Only attempt this technique if they are fluent in the Rank 2 skill “Counter” and they have enough Synchronization bars; one and a half rows of bars will do. When in battle, equip your hidden blade. With this equipped, all of your counters will score an instant kill. You can even instantly kill tougher ranked guards (for example, the Teutonic guards in Acre when hunting Sebrand). Also, most of the time using the hidden blade in battle will scare the last one or two (even three if you are lucky) guards, causing them to run away. However, because you do not have a weapon that is sufficient enough to block a full sized enemy blade, all incoming attacks will hurt you.
While in battle, if you see a guard you are fighting physically emote in any way (for example, taunting you or cowering in fear), press Low Profile Assassinate while facing them to score an instant kill without having to counter.
The best weapon for more than four guards or thugs is the Short Blade.

To decode this, start reading at the bottom right hand corner to the top right hand corner, so you will start at “A” and stop at “S”. It will spell a real word. Do this for all of the columns and it will read:
ARTEFACTS SENT TO THE SKIES TO CONTROL ALL NATIONS TO MAKE US OBEY A HIDDEN CRUSADE DO NOT HELP THEM
Next, do the same thing to the mixed letters on the other side of the Amnius:
A D R H O O D T M W H B I T D O E U S Y S I N S E A R O O M R E A Y N R I S E Y T N I D L M I D E T W I H W Y I E A U D A Y H T
It will spell out:
THEY DRAINED MY SOUL AND MADE IT THEIRS I DRAINED MY BODY TO SHOW YOU WHERE I SAW IT
- Loud assassination: Hold LB + RB and press X. You can do this while running up to a guard, and it almost always works from any angle. However, it is noisy and causes civilians to run for guards.
Silent assassination: Hold LB and press X. It has less of a chance of working, and works best when used behind guards so no one hears you.
The first part is simple. Take out your sword, as you will be fighting all your previous assassination targets. They are fairly easy to kill. Only one counter is required to kill each of them. For the second part, as soon as Al Mualim releases you, use your Eagle Vision. The real Al Mualim is the one in yellow. Focus your attacks on him. In the third part, Al Mualim takes away your synchronization bar and radar, allowing him to kill you in one hit. Take out your throwing knives. Look for the Piece of Eden in his hand. Once you see him, throw a knife at him. Then, just counterattack/grab break him. Keep repeating this until he says, “Damn you Altair!” Finish him off with your hidden blade or keep attacking him with your sword until he is dead.
Go to the entrance of Acre, but go through Kingdom. There is a base of soldiers. Start killing them, but do not finish all of them. Start running to gather more. Kill a few, then run again. Do this until you get the achievement. If you take long time, you may also unlock the “Eagle’s Flight” achievement.
