Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Achievements

The Gloves Come Off

Win the highest bet at the Fights.  

Fights can be participated in by going inside and beneath the Barracks. The Barracks will unlock after completing Sequence 3 and is in the Campagna District (icon is a white sword with a black background). Be sure to have plenty of florins in case you lose the bets. There are a total of five fights to partake in. After finishing the first four, set your bet to the highest amount (500 florins) and win. You must defeat a total of 5 mercenaries within 40 seconds.

There isn’t a real strategy here, besides spamming the button. Continue knocking mercenaries out, and you’ll earn 1150 florins. You can only use your fists, but you will still be able to do counter attacks which will save you lots of time.

Would this be like cagefighting in tbogt or would it be like cock fights?

It's in the Mercenary HQ, down the stairs.

In the fight club, there are 5 fights, increasing in difficulty, the first being unlocked, and the others unlocked by beating the one before it. To get the achievement, you have to get to the last fight, place a bet for 500, and win.

When you look at the map, at the Campagna District, should look like a black circle with a white sword on it. When you hover your cursor over it, it says Barracks. That's where the cage fight is at.

@7 when it starts run to the person and kick him. As he bends down spam x to punch him then as he gets back up kick him again and then spam punch again. This way you can keep attacking and he won't counter.

I found that an easy way to beat the fights is to just continue attacking him, timing it right so that he won't be able to counter.

Throw sand in the beginning of the fights by holding the attack button down then releasing to throw - you can get one punch knockouts if you do it right making it an easy task.

#8 ill try that one, sounds like the best i saw on the page
other question, do i have to max out every bet on every level, or just max out the last one?

Comment #15 by LAXm1dd1e45
Tuesday, December 28, 2010 @ 07:07:09 PM

just got it, the easiest way is to just punch a guy until you counter, and always watch out for the counter attack, because that'll almost always be a one hit kill which gives you more time. so, punch constantly until you can counter an attack, then switch to that

@3,5 When you look at the video of the achievement being done in the
the achievement guide go to the area where it shows the icon in his video,
then when your there go into a building and it will then have an icon when
you enter the building. You'll talk to a girl blah blah blah then after the
conversation go to the stairs leading you to the basement via Barracks and
then you talk to the guy and do the fights... Hope that helps.

Also some tips when you get to this part try to hit them as fast as possible
and reversals can kill people instantly, and when they try to back up on you
do a quick taunt and start punching again.

Comment #20 by StalePasta
Friday, January 14, 2011 @ 05:14:56 PM

There is a strategy to this actually. Make sure to start all of your attacks with a kick. After that spam X until you kill them. Make sure to keep your finger ready on the R button though because if someone starts attacking you you're health will fall really fast. Also there is one guy who will dodge all your attacks, save him for last. To hit him simply hold in R and circle him slowly, he will eventually bend over to grab sand. As soon as he does this attack, and your attacks will make contact.

Comment #23 by Hitman2169
Monday, March 28, 2011 @ 04:07:49 AM

The easiest way to do this is with combo kills. For those who don't know what that is, when you are attacking, hit x again right as you make contact and it should knock them out. They can be tricky, but if you do that and contour you should do fine. I beat it with like 20-25 seconds left.

nvm got it right after that post. just got lucky i think.. u do gotta catch him in the middle of him trying to throw sand... i got him both times by landing a punch or 2 the kicking 1nce then another punch and he was down.

Comment #30 by click_kaboom

Sand, counters, dodges, taunts. You gotta take them down fast or else you'll run out of time.

Dude, the time restrictions are bullshit, excuse my French. Five guys in 45 sec,
no chain knock-outs, 5 points of bs health, and half of them dodge every blow
until they're caught in a counter? Wtf, man?

Comment #37 by DragonCrusaderV
Saturday, July 30, 2011 @ 09:30:22 AM

got it on my first try, pressing RT and X at the same time is your best option,
finish with 15 sec left to spare and for those of you that cant find the place:
go to a tunnel entrance
and pick the barracks option
and then you`ll be transported into the barracks guild

Comment #38 by MM2313
Tuesday, August 02, 2011 @ 06:37:33 AM

Start each fight against your opponent with a kick, then keep on punching the guy until he defends himself. Kick him again and repeat until he falls down. Countering, in my opinion, is a waste of time here, as it forces you to lose a lot of time. Only counter when you're about to get hit, then re-focus on the guy you were just fighting with the same tactics I described. Took me a couple of tries, but the achievement was mine in no time!

Comment #39 by MM2313
Tuesday, August 02, 2011 @ 06:38:56 AM

Oh yeah and don't forget to place the highest bet possible for each fight before it begins. Forgot to mention that!

take him as target ... Ezio will perform a onehit :D

Thursday, October 13, 2011 @ 02:58:15 PM

I cannot even get close to winning the first fight. Time always runs out. I've tried sand, kicking, punching, countering....nothing works. I really don't know how its possible to win a fight in under 10 seconds. I've tried well over 100 times.

Comment #47 by HxHThor

Comment #57 by TotalBlank
Thursday, June 14, 2012 @ 11:32:50 PM

Easiest way to win this is by holding X to pick up dirt and throw it at the 3 middle fighters as they approach you, then Ezio should be able to knock out 2 of them with combo's, and you repeat the dirt throw on the other 3 and you should have plenty of time to spare.

For those who don't know - Like I didn't - You have to use the Tunnels to get to the barracks. They are an option as you select a tunnel to fast travel to, in the north east of the map.
