How do you throw redcoats into water?

Optional objective. Picking up dead bodies and dropping them into the water doesn't count. Neither do counter-throws, apparently, unless I'm doing something wrong.

any help?

Run towards them and tackle.

This took me a bit to figure out as well. Fight them with no weapon equipped and parry + O (in direction of water).

It doesn't have to be no weapon. Any counter followed by O again will throw them. In other words, it is in fact the counter-throw, and I can vouch for that.

Nothing works for me. Counter-throw doesn't work, grabs don't work, running into them and knocking them into water doesn't work, tossing their dead bodies into the water doesn't work. So many stupid bugs in this game, and they're extremely unclear on how to do certain moves.

Didn't work for me

Hmm... when I did it, I was on the planks that connect the ships to the stone platforms. I definitely did the counter-throw, because I was trying everything (the same process you guys did), so when I noticed my counter going up, I did two more counter-throws and I was done.

It has to be from the boat not the plank took me a couple trys to figure that out thought the counter was glitching. Just stand near the side of the boat and wait to get attacked and throw them over,.
