How do you counter/dodge attacks/stuns in multiplayer?

  1. Its happened alot to me, either I'm attacking the person, it goes to animation, but then they either dodge or stun me instead, and vice versa, I go to stun someone and they either dodge me or attack me and kill me even after my animation activates? Are you able to counter attack/stun in multiplayer? Are you able to dodge? And how do you do it? I know its possible cause I've had it done to me several times (more than 10) and its so frustrating cause I don't know how they do it...

  2. Clarification Request::
    Has this happened to you while trying to execute a completely normal assassination? I've done this and it's happened to me too, but only ever when the target used a smoke bomb. I had the beta, so I know that in the beta there was a problem with the kill animation sometimes allowing the pursuer to ignore the effects of a smoke bomb if they activated it within the first second or so after the bomb was thrown. Since I've only ever seen the dodge happen when a smoke bomb was thrown, I'm assuming this is something Ubi implemented to fix the glitch. Hope that helps!

  1. AFAIK the dodge thing (i experienced it too) is caused by lag because I have no idea how you can do it. Then again, I doubt Ubi created an animation when you fail a kill due to lag, so I don't know.

    As for the stun, Ubisoft made the kill purposefuly have priority over the stun, or else anyone with buttonmashing skills could just run to their killers and stun them. TO successfully stun someone, as said in one of the MP loading tips, you need to "SURPRISE" them, i.e. make them forget they have to press that square. For that, you can use a smoke bomb, a decoy, maybe a firecracker but that's risky, or either morph a crowd and approach him casually so it looks like you're an NPC until it's too late.

    PS: In case you didn't know, decoy makes your targeted persona (anyone you pressed L1 on) transform into your skin and run awway from you.

  2. OK dodge i got no clue really but i think when u throw a smoke bomb it creates auto 3 sec dodge so that's what im thinking stuns you really cant the best thing to do is to get the resistance perk and have it upgraded as much as possible because it makes stun time alot less so this is what i usually do and it has helped me a great deal my ps3 username is hindu4life but im locked out cuz my bro put a lock on it so when im allowed back and u wanna challenge me bring it on i will kick ur butt
