Drowning the boy does not stop him from crying, and you can still initiate the cutscene after he's gone. This grab-move exploit was originally reported by aurllcooljay. Both he and I independently managed to kill this boy in this way. This is the first published video of a child dying in the Assassin's Creed series.

Here's a little Variety Pack on the mission "Follow The Money" (Sequence 5) where you have to take out silently the guard inside the Pantheon. It includes: Air Assassination, Eagle Strike, Stunt Assassination and a Parachute-Drop Assassination.

The mission Between a Rock and a Hard Place is a story mission in sequence 3 memory 2. In it you destroy a Borgia tower and renovate the mercenaries headquarters. It starts out with a Borgia captain running away to the tower. You have to kill him before he reaches it or you fail the mission. All in all this mission seems better designed than some of the main assassinations. Here are some creative assassinations.
Longshot: I try to kill the target from as far away as possible with the hidden gun (the game doesn't track how far away he is from you so I put a map marker on him). Usually the mission desynchronizes at fifty meters, but sometimes it can go one or two more meters without desynchronizing. In the video he is exactly fifty meters away when I shoot, then fifty two meters right afterward.
Dynamic Stunt: I run ahead and wait at the edge of a cliff for the target. When he passes by I jump off and assassinate him. I'm careful to stay within forty nine meters so that the mission doesn't fail.
Mini Air Assassination Stunt: Very similar to the dynamic stunt. I wait on the top of the corner railing for the target (sorry that a tree blocks view of Ezio). I jump to the platform of a lift and perform a mini air assassination when the target is in range.
Tripwire: Since the target takes a predictable path there are many opportunities to get him with manually aiming the hidden gun in his path. I choose to get him at the very end of his path, at the entrance of the tower.
Hello guys, after many months without making AC videos i finally made a new one... i hope you'll enjoy it
In this video i show an Eagle Strike and a Stunt Assassination on the Borgia Captain. He will have two guards guarding the entryway to where he is located. Get on a roof from the opposite side and take them out using some throwing knives. Then climb the Borgia Tower and get on the wooden platform (0:42). Once the two guards are dead, the target will go out few times to inspect the area.
This mission is similar to the parachute air assassination as shown by Arrrogance:
The parachute eagle strike is a lot easier than it looks. I estimate that I have about a 50% success rate on the eagle strike (maybe better).

The Banker Juan Borgia can be turkey shooted by waypoint separation. To do this first kill the guards in the area to avoid detection. Then lure the Banker with a dead body to the edge of the ruins right above a haystack (you can either throw money and kill the character there or carry a dead body to that spot). Throw a smoke bomb to avoid being detected by the Banker, grab him, and drop him right over the edge above the haystack. If done correctly he will fall into the haystack, which will prevent from him taking any damage. He will no longer move since his waypoint is up in the ruins, and although that isn't far away he would have to walk around to the other side to get up there.
Eagle Strike After Waypoint Separation: Even after Waypoint Separation the target can be lured to places with dead bodies. I do an eagle strike from the top of one of the pillars (sorry if it wasn't fast enough).
Waypoint Separation Stunt: This is simply doing a stunt assassination where the Banker stands after the turkey shoot. I get as close as I can get without accidentally doing a leap of faith and perform a sideways jump.
This is my first variety pack of ACB

To initiate superblending, you need to first blend with a group of people, and then transition to a non-standing surface during the blending grace period. I used this exploit to kill the target without being seen.
Eagle Strike #1
Without a lock, Ezio will throw a knife in the last direction of travel. Look over Ezio's head to fine tune your aim.
