Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Achievements


Throw a Long Weapon, Heavy Weapon, and Smoke bomb more than 10 m at a guard.

Smoke Bomb: Target an Enemy from more than 10 meters away by pressing and then press to throw it at him. If you want, go on top of a roof and throw it down on an enemy to make it easier.

Long Weapon (Spear): Find an enemy with a spear. Kill him along with all the guards and then pick up his spear. Find an enemy that isn't moving and go as far away as you can from him (within the range or targeting him). Press to lock onto him and then Hold to charge the throw. Once it is fully charged throw the spear.

Heavy weapon: You can buy heavy weapons from blacksmiths. You can tell what item is a heavy weapon because it says heavy weapon on the item. There is also a picture of a hammer instead of a sword. Find an enemy that isn't moving and go as far away as you can from him (within the range or targeting him). Press to lock onto him and then Hold to charge the throw. Once it is fully charged throw the Heavy weapon.

@2 It's most likely one of the two new gameplay features mentioned in the trailer

@ 2+3 You can throw spears and axes any way, done it many times. lock on to a guard at a distance (when you have a spear or axe, also easy to do to roof top guard who don't know your there) hold the attack button then release. I want to know how you throw a smoke bombs that far.

Lock onto a target and run away and throw a bomb.

Probably easiest form a roof top

Or maybe it means you have to throw an LW at a guard, a HW at a guard, and a Smoke at a guard but it doesn't have to be the same gaurd just as long as youve thrown all of these at a guard

You can get on a roof with heavy weapons or spear useing a elevator or ladder.

I've been trying for over an hour. I just can't get it.

Wednesday, March 09, 2011 @ 08:28:17 AM

I'm with Zhaniel. I have been doing this and have been doing this from as far away as it will let me and it still will not give me the achievement. I know xbox can be very pciky about when it gives out the achievements but I have been doing this for a while and it still wont give it to me. Is there anything specific. Or any type of routine I should be doing?

Comment #11 by echoedpulse23
Wednesday, March 09, 2011 @ 08:30:24 AM

Also does this have to be all in sequence. What I mean is, can I throw an smoke bomb and then maybe do a mission or two and then throw a spear, then a heavy weapon to get hte achievement or do I have to do it one after the other?

Comment #12 by Pugz
Wednesday, March 09, 2011 @ 11:08:31 AM

I got it on my first try so who knows. I threw a smoke bomb at an archer on a roof from as far as I could target him. The spear I threw at a guard who I let walk down the road a little bit. I threw the heavy weapon from a small rooftop down on to some guards.

i just got the achievement, it didnt take me long. it doesnt have to be in the same fight, i chucked a spear at a guard from long range, ran around, got on a roof, and locked onto a guard and from as far away as i could threw a smoke bomb, jumped off the roof and conveniently enough there was a 4 guard patrol walking around, and with my axe equipped i hurled it from long range and it popped up. hope this helps!

ignore that haha didnt know u could throw your own weapons

Comment #18 by Zhaniel

If you put custom marker next to group of guards, you can see distance to them next to map. It helps a little.

Comment #19 by Restricted-Access
Friday, March 11, 2011 @ 02:05:06 AM

This is SUPER-EASY! First, equip Ezio with an axe (you should have one if you've been playing a while). Try to attack as few guards as possible (perhaps one or two at a guard post - one with a spear)! Highlight the "spear" guard from as far away as possible and hit him with a smoke bomb. Then, equip your axe, press and hold X and release. Kill any remaining guards (or call in back-up or arrow storm), then pick-up the spear and lock onto a guard from as far away as possible, hold X and release!

Comment #20 by Restricted-Access
Friday, March 11, 2011 @ 02:08:33 AM

Oh... don't forget to re-equip another hand weapon (sword OR axe)... since you threw your axe at the guard. You can either pick one up off of the ground or go to a blacksmith and re-equip one there! :-)

Comment #21 by pr1nyc1
Wednesday, March 16, 2011 @ 11:42:09 AM

Is the axe a hand weapon that could be purchased at the blacksmith? I dont recall ever receiving, or buying, and axe.

Comment #22 by Triple Jester
Thursday, March 17, 2011 @ 01:10:09 AM

It's easier if u just do it all at once. And use an axe, I used a heavy sword the first time and it didn't work, cuz it's pointed I guess

Comment #23 by Triple Jester
Thursday, March 17, 2011 @ 01:11:38 AM

And also the achievement says 10m lol I stopped reading before that, guess that's y I messed up the first time :p

the new ability to throw weapons is awesome.

Comment #25 by Restricted-Access
Tuesday, March 22, 2011 @ 11:13:37 PM

I don't consider doing each attack a few minutes apart, "all at once!" It's easiest to find two guards without any others near by. Lock-on for each attack. Start with the "smoke bomb" attack. Then, switch to your axe, lock-on to the guard with a spear and throw your axe at him (holding X). Go get the spear from the guard you just killed and use it to kill the remaining guard! If he attacks you before you can throw the spear at him, hit him with another smoke bomb, pick-up the spear and try again. If that doesn't work... just kill the guard and look for one not attacking you and use it on HIM! It is EASY! Good luck, guys (or girls)!! :-)

Comment #26 by kitty blah
Monday, March 28, 2011 @ 12:28:33 AM

I did these all over the city and quite a fair few minutes apart, so I don't think it's time or action based - you just have to do one of each at some time and you'll get the achievement.

Just lock-on, watch them walk away from you, hold X then release and it's easy as pie.

Spear I disarmed from one of the guards and killed him and his mates with the same spear. Then ran off and used it against another group of guards long distance. Didn't even get seen doing this.

Smoke bomb I just looted off a dead guard and threw at a group of four, again - didn't get caught.

Axe was a bit harder.. I tried to use axes/mace I got off guards but they wouldn't throw. So I went to the blacksmith and equipped a heavy weapon (an axe, I think) there. Worked a charm.. even flew through tree branches

Comment #27 by kitty blah
Monday, March 28, 2011 @ 12:38:21 AM

Yeah, the instructions should read:
"Throw a Long Weapon, Heavy Weapon, and Smoke bomb at guards from 10 m away."
Or similar.

Comment #28 by FlexibleToad
Saturday, April 02, 2011 @ 01:10:42 PM

i think this achievement is glitched, because i never threw a heavy weapon at any guard, but it unlocked though.

Comment #29 by tess622
Sunday, April 03, 2011 @ 01:49:45 PM

Do you need the DLC to get this? It doesn't really say. I sounds like you can just do this without the DLC by wondering around the city.

Comment #30 by CamelToes
Monday, April 04, 2011 @ 02:14:25 PM

it is in the DLC achievement list; so yes, you need the DLC to get this achievement

I cant even kill an enemy by throwing a spear?! I've hit 3 or 4 different guards by throwing a spear just to have it do NOTHING!

Sorry to sound stupid but it says i have 60 achievements to unlock yet I have not bought the Da vinci pack ? This seems strange because several of my friends have still got 50 achievements to unlock and they have not either. Can somebody explain this please ? If it helps I have the special edition of ACB.

Comment #34 by JonTheGod
Monday, April 25, 2011 @ 08:01:43 AM

@33 - I imagine your friends show 50 because they haven't played AssBro whilst connected to Live since the DLC was released. Your achievement list always shows the full number of achievements linked to the game, irrespective of whether or not you bought the DLC.

Comment #35 by JonathanHarding
Monday, April 25, 2011 @ 09:10:25 AM

Thanks... they say that they have connected to live.. as well as this they cannot connect to me.. I am very confused ! :S

Comment #36 by Sid Viper
Sunday, June 19, 2011 @ 02:22:53 PM

I think the achievement is a little glitched cause I killed countless guards with spears and axes and it never unlocked but when I used a marker to tell me exactly how far away 10m actually was and stood at that distance and killed them it finally worked. Apparently if you're too far away it won't unlock for some reason. Hope everyone else has better luck than I did. 10m isn't as far as you might think.

Comment #37 by McEng78
Friday, July 15, 2011 @ 08:24:20 AM

It's worth noting that I think that in order to throw an equipped heavy weapon, it has to be an axe or something similar. I had the Romulous sword equipped, which I'm pretty sure is a heavy weapon but Ezio won't throw it. I'm going to try to buy an axe tonight and see if that makes a difference

Comment #38 by alcapwned93
Saturday, July 16, 2011 @ 03:31:19 PM

A perfect place to do this is just a down the street south of the Pantheon, just go down the 2 small flights of stairs and their should be a group of guards on your right just chilling.I used a long sword as my heavy weapon. Basically like everyone said lockon to guard then just back up and you can see how far you are away then fire. There's a blacksmith nearby east of the Pantheon to restock on heavy weapons and smoke bombs, finding a spear isn't hard just fight a patrolling group and take one. I agree the achievement is a little glitched but at most you may have to try each weapon 2 or 3 times max.

Comment #39 by Thorin22
Thursday, July 21, 2011 @ 02:31:37 PM

not difficult, just be sure your far enough

Comment #40 by Big Stoz
Monday, August 01, 2011 @ 07:07:13 AM

Might be been a complete dick here but I can't seem to launch the heavy weapon without shooting the guard, maybe I'm holding X too long. Was thinking of just using all my bullets and seeing if that solves the problem.

Comment #41 by MM2313
Tuesday, August 02, 2011 @ 06:57:04 AM

You gotta use a Spear, Axe, and Smoke Bomb, once each time. Just lock on to a guard that's chilling at least ten feet away or a little more and just throw. Took me a few minutes for do each, but it was easy and the achievement is mine.

Comment #42 by Spitt1e
Tuesday, August 02, 2011 @ 07:49:35 AM

I've been trying for this one for ages. Countless axes, spears, & smoke bombs have been eaten by guards and still no achievement. I've tried the marker method, used the axe you can purchase and watched video's of people getting this one....nothing.

Comment #43 by DragonCrusaderV
Friday, August 05, 2011 @ 08:13:28 PM

for those that still need help, here is an easier way, make sure you have 3 smoke bombs, the stocollo or something (acts as a heavy weapon), first is the smoke bombs, find a group of guards, get as far away from them as you can,(after focusing/targeting on them) and threw the smoke bomb, after it clears, from the same place take out your stocollo and press X, once you have it out, target another guards and hold x, let go of it and there goes the heavy weapon, next find a guard with a long weapon, kill him, kill the rest of his group, find another guard, target him, get as far away from him as possible, hold X and throw it, and there you go strong arm

Comment #44 by Bubbabrine
Tuesday, October 18, 2011 @ 09:56:02 PM

You can definitely be too far away. Use a custom marker to learn how far away 10m is and then try to stay within 10-18. If your spear or axe just bounce off of their armor, then you're probably too far away. I tried it multiple times and couldn't get it until I was within 15 or so of the guard.

Comment #45 by Wisetune
Thursday, November 03, 2011 @ 08:16:16 AM

I Got the Long & Heavy part no problem, but for some reason, I am unable to throw a smoke bomb. They just drop at my feet no matter how long I hold X. Very frustrating. Anyone else dealing with this? Any advice?

Comment #46 by erveii
Wednesday, November 30, 2011 @ 12:04:58 PM

i tried throwing the heavy sword but nothing popped out, i'll try throwing an axe tonight and see :)

Comment #47 by musicskooool
Thursday, December 15, 2011 @ 06:45:43 PM

You don't have to hold X when you are throwing bombs. Just lock on to your target, back off 10+meters, then press X to throw.

Comment #48 by esoterikos
Saturday, March 17, 2012 @ 01:51:49 PM

There is an Assassination Mission called Turning the Tables. It's perfect for this. You have to kill pairs of 3 types of guards, the first have spears. You have to take the spear in a counter, but after that you can do what you want. The 3 pairs of guards are in separate areas and will not come running to help other pairs. You do have to throw all 3 things within one play through of the mission to pop the cheev.

Comment #49 by psyclo22

Tried and tried this one but the achievement didn't unlock. Even followed the walkthrough on youtube as a last resort, did it exactly the same, still no achievement.

Anybody else notice that every single list of dlc achievements carries one or more dumbasses that ask the retarded question ” do I have to have the dlc to do this?” Come on!

How do you get this DLC do you have to pay in Microsoft Points or what?

Comment #52 by fbidave
Thursday, January 31, 2013 @ 08:25:46 AM

#50 + #51 = Sigh! ;)

This wasn't unlocking for me either... Then I stopped being a dork and did it WITHIN THE MEMORY...


After you get the guy and beat the first set of attackers outside the pub you will have ample opportunity on way to the preset destination. Unlocked fine for me just now. Not much of a spoiler but warned nonetheless.

Comment #53 by mirotana
Monday, March 31, 2014 @ 12:04:29 PM

I used a custom marker for this to measure the 10m and did this over and over, checking forums to find out how to do it and what I was doing wrong. .. I didn't have the DLC. But no one in the forums seemed to care to mention that. They should somehow show that its a DLC achievement in the "Xbox guide/home button" thing list. I felt stupid.

Comment #54 by foureyes89
Monday, April 21, 2014 @ 07:25:22 PM

this achievement is not working for me. i have done all three several times and even went as far away from the target as possible before i lost the targeting option and it still didn't work.

Comment #55 by n0vasurge
Friday, June 06, 2014 @ 04:00:29 AM

You can be too far away. 10m isn't as far as you think. get the ax from the blacksmith, kill a guard with a spear and toss it, and toss a smoke bomb. Don't go as far out as you can! as soon as you can lock on to a guard is about good enough. again, you can be too far! It took me quite a few tries to realize this.
