Assassin's Creed II

Assassin's Creed II Achievements


Pickpocket 1000 Florins.  

Although you can pickpocket from the start of the game, you don’t learn this ability until the memory ‘Fitting In’ during DNA Sequence 2. To pickpocket someone, while walking around, hold to Fast Walk and just bump into people. You will get anywhere from 1 to 25ƒ. Make sure you only pickpocket 5 or 6 people then you need to either blend in or escape since someone you just pickpocketed might find you and provoke a fight, possibly alerting the guards.

Just keep doing this over the course of your playthrough and you should have it in no time.

You can easily get this by catching and punching pickpockets. You get over 500 florins when you catch one. I got this achievement on my first pickpocket.

If you want this early on to get it out the way then it can be done fairly easily once you unlock the second region in florence. Lop between the eastern fast travel post and the doctor just to the north west. I got between 150 and 300 every 30 seconds or so. Achievement after about 5 and a bit cycles. No guards are there at night so can grind 5000 in half an hour.

Not that bad of a grind, the upper-class citizens in Venice(fancy looking clothes) usually net 15-19 florins each.

Its also a lot of fun to find a big group of citizens, throw some florins on the ground, pickpocket all of them, and run.
Kept me entertained!

Easily done at the start of the game when you first play as Ezio. Takes 5-10 mins tops. Most of the people there net 15~20 Florins.

It seems you just have to bribe the (herald) dude who'd normally lower your notoriety and just pickpocket it back, twice.
Alternatively, do it during Sequence 9.5 when you don't really get any notoriety whilst wearing the masquerade mask and each person has c.15f each.
