A collection of Easter Eggs in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. I could use your help analyzing some of them.
The opening scene isn't exactly an Easter Egg. It's just something I noticed the first time I played Brotherhood a couple of years ago. Lucy follows Desmond as they search underground for an alternate entrance to the Villa. Usually Lucy will hang back just behind the camera but if Desmond walks slowly enough, she will remain in frame. That's why she's sort of shuffling rather than taking full strides.
A well-known Easter Egg, Lucy is playing Project Legacy on her second monitor. Some have said "This is a Templar game. It proves she's a Templar!" I think it's just a cross-reference to the other Assassin's Creed game released with Brotherhood. Nothing more.
A rather amusing but missable cutscene. (Contains strong language. )
The writing is on the floor
Eagle Vision reveals symbols on the floor during this Lair of Romulus. Both originally appeared on the floor of the Abstergo laboratory at the end of Assassin's Creed 1. The Pyramid of Eden symbolizes the Templar plan to send a Piece of Eden into orbit and control all beneath it. The square of letters reads "Artefacts sent to the skies to control all nations, to make us obey a hidden crusade. Do not help them." Thanks to JoeyFogey for originally bringing this to our attention.
There are also some red arrows to guide your way with Eagle Vision (not shown). I find it easier to follow the well-lit path without Eagle Vision. Torches guide the way to the end of this lair.
Alright here is how offensive decoy works. If you see a stationary group, eliminate as many as possible by using obstacles to block the compass. You will normally narrow it down to 2 people. Use decoy on one of them, if it is the player it will say you can only use it on civilians, and if it isnt well it will turn into a copy of you and you know the other guy is the real target. This could work with poison, but I wanted smoke for now to get focus kills.
Here is another defensive video for manhunt, this time showing off the mute ability. A new trick me and RomanFighter now use is standing above the lifts. You look like some dumb noob, but if you use mute on there way up you can stun them, and then you can use smokes as they wake up. Just hope they dont have the hidden gun, but if you are skilled you can use the lift structure at the top to block them at the last sec. It works very well with a partner as they also get to use smoke and mute once you run out, and your chance of getting shot is halved!
You must use mute early, it has a larger range than smoke bombs so remember that. Use it too late, they will usually kill you. Remember it is 3 Dimensional, meaning it works above and below, and also through walls.
I got a triple escape in this video, its ugly, but the tunnel area actually worked.
Play along with the video below the map to quickly collect all 5 Artifacts in Monteriggioni.
