"Kill an enemy with every type of weapon." Is their a workaround/fix yet?

I have seen other have the same problem as me and wondered if there is a fix or work around yet. I am stuck at 8/9 on the Abstergo challenge "Kill an enemy with every type of weapon."

I assure you I have killed enemies in every way possible. It's the only challenge I have left which sucks.

have you used throwing knives? to my knowledge you can only get them off of knife wielding guards and they do indeed count

Did you let the berserk darts poison fully run down the timer so the target dies?

Single Sword is another missed item

But this would help us, help you out the most
The problem with restraining speech is, who gets to set the rules? If it's only okay in a certain time or place, who gets to say what time and what place?

There is no glitch, its just people not getting it correctly.

Hidden blade (every type of kill with them possible.)
Double swords
Single sword (off a guard)
Throwing knife (both owned and disarmed off a guard.)
Heavy weapon disarmed off a guard (regular kill and special kill.)
Berserker dart (both being killed by other guards and time running out.)
Rope dart (pull towards, choking and hanging.)
Rifle from guard, both shooting and bayonet
Swivel gun on the Jackdaw
I even made a brute kill himself with his own grenade.

These are just off the top of my head and I may have forgotten some. Someone mentioned it isn't a glitch and I am missing something. I am all for that but what am I missing?

I had the glitch that made it stuck at 8/9, but with the last patch it was fixed. Anyway, before that, there was a workaround.

Go to the save data and delete your profile data. NOT THE SAVEGAME, but the profile data. Next time you start AC IV, you should get the "5 statues" challenge notification, and, assuming the weapons challenge wasn't counting, it should now count. Beware that it may still appear has incompleted, like 8/9, but if you look at the total challenges completed it may have 1 more completed. It's what happened to me. I actually had 100 challenges completed, the last cheat awarded as well as the multiplayer title, but the weapons challenge was still 8/9. With the last patch, it changed to "completed".
