  3. Game breaking bug? Lost the ability to use blowpipe and hidden blades
2 years ago#1
I'm not sure what I'm doing or did wrong, but after finishing Templar Hunt 1 mission set after I beat the game, I cannot use hidden blades anymore, and I cant use the blowpipe.
- In the dpad tool/weapon selection I can't select hidden blades cos they're simply not there.
- And while I have both berserk and sleep darts, I can't use them because Edward isn't equipped with blowpipe (usually seen worn on his back).

What or where do I go do reacquire these, if possible?

Note that I tried replaying the mission where you acquire a blow pipe, and while I *can* use both hidden blades and blowpipe on the mission, both are gone when I finish the memory.

Input from people who experienced the same thing would be appreciated, or perhaps suggestions on how to fix it.

Throwing Knife seems to disappear too...

I'm early in the game and I used my throwing knife and could not retrieve it...being chased by soldiers.

Then went to the General Store and could not replace or buy one! WTF??

Just common bugs with every game release. I'm sure it'll be patched soon.

Same thing happened to me after, one of the diving bell missions, and now I can't get the optional objectives of the mission I am on. I opened a ticket with Ubisoft, I ll let you know when they answer

Yeah it's very important to report these issues directly to ubisoft as well, so they are aware of the issues and can release a patch.

As a precautionary step to those not effected,

The game saves can be copied to other memory devices. If you have a USB or memory card, you should try to semi-frequently back up your save file when you finish a gaming session. If you ever run into a bug like this, simply reload your backup save.

Ubisoft contacted me:

Please visit and store and ensure that you have ammunition for the blowpipe.

Select the a dart by pressing Right on the D-Pad. Approach a guard until he is highlighted and press Triangle.

If you absolutely cannot use it, could you please provide a video of the footage. Include in the footage what happens when you try to use the pipe using L1 to aim and R1 to fire and also what happens when pressing triangle.

Will be taking the video now, if any other ppl have the same prob as us, please make avideo too, the more proof the better

The key is that they need to be able to replicate the bug, so make sure to detail what you were doing just before the bug happened as well.

Already told them that, I realized it might have happened when after using the Diving Bell in a Smuggler Den, I rushed in the captain's cabin for equipment as a ship was nearby full that I after attacked
