When you only have a few feathers left to find pause gameplay and go to the DNA strand. At the DNA strand there is a section at the end of the strand that shows you where the feathers are located.

There is an Easter egg in the 'Bonfire of the Vanities' DLC that allows you at certain times to view Ezio's dead family members. After you have me up with Niccolo go to the Palazzo Auditore, enter the building and engage Eagle Vision to see them.
When you have collected the indicated amount of feathers place them in the box in your villa and talk to your mother.
Unlock Condottiero War Hammer:
Collect 50 Feathers, talk to your mother and the Condottiero War Hammer will become available in the blacksmith's shop at Villa Monteriggioni.
Unlock Auditore Cape:

To do this equip the throwing knives and hold down RT + X while running off any roof. When you do this Ezio will continue running in a straight line off the roof in the air. To make him come down release the buttons or switch to another weapon. If you drop down you won't throw the knife but will waste ammo if you reach another roof, switching to another weapon will instead conserve your knives.
Get all of the assassins seals to obtain altairs armor and his armor never has to be repaired
Many people have had a hard time with the part when playing as Altair for a brief section of the game. There is one jump where you, on a balcony, must jump up to a wooden post and use that to get to the end of the section, but due to the new free running techniques and system, the jump that was fairly easy in AC1 is now fairly difficult to make, sometimes taking people five minutes or more to make. Here's a simple way to do it:
When you get to the top, move Altair to the center of the balcony while balancing on the low wall. Now, face the wooden platform while still on said wall, hold Right Trigger, and tap A. This will make Altair jump and grab the post. If he doesn't grab it, try holding B right after jumping. This should get you up to the top no problem.
-Titans of industry - (Ford archive) - One line equals three dots so the missing parts of the code wheel are one line and two dots and three lines. The newspaper has two lines and two dots on it and the car in the picture to the left has a 2 on it so align the code wheel so that 2 equals two lines and two dots and you've got the code.
- "I am become death, the destroyer of worlds" - Here the missing parts of the coe wheel are a circle and a circle and a square while 9 equals a triangle. Align the wheel accordingly and once again you've got the code.
- The Bunker - Here each successive part of the code wheel gains another line and so the missing parts have 5 and 8 lines respectively (there will be another part with 8 lines the missing one is a rhombus within a rhomb..
Look up all the locations of the feather and as you collect them, mark them down as collected.
I advise you get the 27 from florece, the 11 from tuscany and the 12 from flori. This will eqaul to 50 feathers, take them back to the chest in moteriggoni and you will be able to buy a weapon from the blacksmith for 30-oddk.
Then get the 46 in venice and the 4 in monteriggoni and return them to the chest and get the auditore cape
When you are being chased by guards free-run up a wall and press x at the highest point of your run and you will jump backwards and kill the guards.
BUT! This may not always work,if they are too far away,you will miss them.
if thay have weapons,they can block your attack (try to disarm them and discard their weapon in the sea)
this is a great technique if you can pull it off, if you can't.....RUN!!!!
If you have thieves following you and you don't want them around anymore (or you just feel like messin' with them) you can make them jump in the water.
Go to swimable water with a post in it. Only you can swim. Once you jump to the post, the thieves will try to follow. They can't grab the post because you're on it. They die. Woo. Cheap thrills.
You may already know this, but did you know you can literally TACKLE someone you are chasing? While running, or sprinting, if you get close enough to the target you are chasing and press B, Ezio will tackle them. You then have plenty of time to assassinate them while they lie helplessy on the ground. This is very handy when chasing thiefs, or agile guards which are a pain in the neck to catch.
Hope this helped.
After being brought into Moteriggioni by Uncle Marco, And Invading Tuscany. By now Da Vinci should have showed you the New ways to Assassinate. Do the Climb Assassination. Climb up the Side and scale along the Side, Once behind Pazzi, Lock on to him using the LT Button, Then X. Which means Assassinate PAZZI!
once you have the florence cape you can steal gold in the city with out gards chasing you if you hire cortasans first and have them follow you while you steal gold form people
Try attacking people who give you jobs. It will look like you have just killed a civilian but he /she will get back up off the ground and you can keep on doing it
Here are techniques that make the game easier with killing guards and making a quick getaway or a quick massacre.
1.Blood Mist-You need a smoke bomb for this 1st if your facing a large group of guards you equip your hidden blade then when they get close to you throw your smoke bomb down(the guards will aways be next to each other) so when their all around you use your double hidden blade and start taking down multiple guards in secends. Even if it's 10guards if you do this right with 2kills per blade then you should kill the group of guards b4 the mist/smoke dissipears and best of all your in it so people wont see you clearly and you wont gain much notority(or no notority at all sometimes)
2.Poison Mist-This is the exact same technique but you use the poison blade a..
