Assassin's Creed II Achievements


Perform an Air Assassination on a Poisoned NPC.  

You gain the poison ability in DNA Sequence 5 during the memory ‘A Blade with Bite’. Once this mission is complete, select the poison by holding and moving the to the top left of the weapon wheel to arm yourself with it. Find a person or a guard, it doesn’t matter which, standing near a climbable box or wall. Walk up to them and press to release the poison. They will begin to stagger around. Climb up the surface and when the icon appears to assassinate them, press to jump down on them to kill them.

Really easy. Poison a target, then change to hidden blade. Run up the nearest wall and jump straight for them

As soon as I got access to my poison blade I went out in search for this...a few mintues later I found 3 guards wandering open ground and there was a pillar there. I poisoned one of the guards, ran up the pillar, jumped off it and killed him! First time I poisoned someone and I got it...lovely :)

I done it at Venecia carnival. After tournament for mask, go to next memory - bordelli. At the entrance there will be pack of guards. I poisoned biggest one, get on box next to him, and jumped. Run as hell while enjoying achievement.

before that, try to do this:

- poison two or three armed guards
- wait few seconds
- toss coins

you will unlock the "man of the people" achievemnt and have fun seeing the poisoned guards killing civilians

I found going onto the rooftops and just finding an isolated archer near any smoke stack (if that's what those are) was an easy way to do it. Simply poison, climb that one foot stack, and assassinate.

it's easier on top of buildings. poison a guard, jump on a chimney or whatever kind of thing is sticking out the top and assassinate him with the hidden blade

Find an NPC guarding a treasure chest (like in Venice) and you can take him out easy without drawing more attention to yourself.

A lot of people are saying jump - DO NOT JUMP.
1. Equip poison weapon.
2. Climb to a rooftop which has an extra platform on top.
3. Let the archer chase you to the extra rooftop platform and poison him there.
4. Climb the platform, select normal hidden blade (RB + up) face him and just press X - don't "jump"!
...Stupid achievement this one.

This achievement is pretty simple once you've unlocked air assassinations and poison darts. Just corner a guard/ enemy, quickly poison him w/ the darts, then finally once he's swinging like a drunken baseball player, instantly climb up a short wall right above the poisoned drunk-like enemy and perform an air assassination; simple (:
