I've got little problem catching up with Hickey, but when I get close and hit square, I get knocked down. At this point I want to split his damn head with my French naval axe, but of course that would fail the mission. -____-
Bring up your weapon wheel with R2 and chose the fist symbol so that you're unarmed. Then just press square when you're near him. --- GameFAQ's logic: Not answering someone's question directly = being a jerk.
Precisely what I've been doing. He just stands there pounding his hand in his fist. Poison darts slow him down, but what good is that if I can't bring him down. I see no reason why the rope dart shouldn't do more than stagger him, and at one point, I leaped at him from the air with precision, unarmed, and nothing. Should have been a sweet aerial tackle, but, nope. Not the first time I've been aggravated by this game. That said, I really like this game, and this is certainly not another BAAAAWWWWW DIS GAME SUX topic. But alot of these issues are ridiculous and some of them are inexcusable.
