Assassin’s Creed 3: 10 top tips for defeating the Templars


Avoid being seen

For both tailing and eavesdropping, the best move you have available is corner cover, activated by approaching a corner and pressing against it. You won’t be completely hidden in this position but it does give you a protected view of the area ahead. If an enemy is near your position you can press Circle to whistle and attract their attention, then hit Square to perform a stealth assassination and hide their body when they investigate. If multiple foes are present be careful as they may all hear you and approach together, exposing you and initiating open conflict.
