i'm doing the stealth challenges for the "perfectionist" achievement since basically every other challenge in the animus virtual training is ridiculously hard. anyway, i'm trying to complete the first all weapons challenge, but i can't kill anyone with the crossbow. i hit LT and lock on to a guard but it just keep firing all around them and not hitting them. is this some sort of glitch? because i can't find any way to aim the thing.

Hold down the fire button until a white beam connects your crossbow to the target.

You hold the "X" button, and before you make another stupid thread, it's the same with the gun...>.>

No need to be a prick.

i actually was confused as well. there are little to no directions when you purchase the crossbow or for the gun, and if any direction/tip box pops up its usually when you're busy in the middle of stabbing a bunch of dudes, and easily missed.

Also make sure the white line is clear on the way to the target, i.e., no obstructions in the way, otherwise the shot will obviously fail.

Or if you are trying to be quick about it then LT to target and tap X and 99% of the time you will nail your target.

i occasionally encounter a wierd bug or something when trying to throw a knife. I hold the button down, and it ends up just tossing it without charging, and as expected, it misses. wierd.
