Assassin's Creed II Guide

Assassin's Creed II Walkthrough and Guide

by Michael Monette  

Print page (no screenshots)   |   Print page Unofficial Guide to Assassin's Creed II


Assassin's Creed II picks up right where the first Assassin's Creed left off -- with test subject Desmond Miles trying to make sense of the strange messages and symbols he has discovered on the wall of his room in the Abstergo Industries research facility, where he is being held prisoner. Desmond must once again use the Animus to relive the genetic memories of one of his ancestors. This time it's the memories of Ezio Auditore da Firenze, a young noble living in the time of the Italian Renaissance.

Every one of Ezio's memories is covered in this guide, as well as every optional event, feather location, and Monteriggioni statue location. You'll also find solutions to all 20 Glyph puzzles and video walkthroughs for each Assassins Tomb.

Note: Now updated to include Sequence 12 and 13 DLCs.

Note: This guide was written based on the Xbox 360 version of the game. Nevertheless, this guide can still be used in conjunction with the PlayStation 3 or PC version, as the only major difference between the three versions is the control scheme.

THAT one is special, the Condottiero War Hammer. It's a reward for finding half of the feathers (at least, I got it once I had gotten all the feathers so far in all the places I had been, which was 54 feathers at that time). When you deposit the feathers, Mario tells you something like "I appreciate what you're trying to do, but give it up. Here, I have something my smiths made for you". I can't remember, but I think at that point you still have to buy it from a Blacksmith.

Assuming there isn't a SECOND such mission, I just did this one like yesterday or so. You have to chase someone (Desmond says we're in Acre, but I don't think so. At any rate, the chase goes through a spot I was tickled to recognize as one of the Assassination sites from AC1, this walled-in courtyard at the corner of the city walls).

Eventually you get to the top of the walls of the courtyard I just mentioned, when your quarry runs around the edge, along the city wall over a couple of buildings, then up onto the city wall. Once you get onto the wall yourself, you get a cutscene showing them going into a door at the corner of the city walls, theoretically to stairs inside leading to the top of the tower.

Since, as usual 99% of the time, doors are merely decorative for us, we have to climb. I climbed this tower the way I did many times in AC1 (about a year ago, Spring 2015), I crossed to the other wall leading to the tower (I always find it difficult to convince Altair or Ezio - or eve
