Kill AnyoneAfter you beat the Game, go back to story
mode with the same game and you can kill anyone without
losing life.

Easy fights:
------------
Note: Only attempt this technique if they are fluent in the Rank 2 skill 
"Counter" and they have enough synchronization bars (a.k.a., life bars). 
One and a half rows of bars will do. When in battle, equip your hidden 
blade. With this equipped, all of your counters will score an instant kill. 
You can even instantly kill tougher ranked guards (for example, the Teutonic 
guards in Acre when hunting Sebrand). Also, most of the time using the hidden 
blade in battle will scare the last one or two (even three if you are lucky) 
guards, causing them to run away. However because you do not have a weapon 
that is sufficient enough to block a full sized enemy blade, all incoming 
attacks will hurt you.

Completion bonuses:
-------------------
Successfully complete the game. When the Memory Blocks are played again in 
Story mode you can kill anyone without penalties. Additionally, you will be 
able to use Eagle Vision at any time regardless of Synchronization levels 
inside of the Animus. 

Maximize efforts for each city:
-------------------------------
To lower the time needed to complete the game and to decrease the difficulty of 
each major assassination, do the following in order (with the exception of Masyaf).

- Visit the Assassin's Guild
- Scan the city by first climbing all of the view points. 
- Rescue all the citizens from the thugs. You will need the help after a major 
  assassination. 
- Complete all of the informant's missions (to get all the valuable information 
  you can). 
- Pickpocket the shysters in all of the pickpocket missions (for information 
  to the Guild). 
- When all of these are completed, go back to the Assassin's Guild and get ready 
  for the major assassination mission. 


Transformers reference:
-----------------------
Travel to the southwestern-most vigilantes in the poor district of Damascus. 
On one of the buildings around them, you should see an outcropping in the wall, 
climb on it and you will see that it looks exactly like G1 Optimus Prime in 
vehicle mode. Note that there may be more than one outcropping in the area, 
so look carefully. If you lose sight of the vigilantes, you have gone too far.

Hidden messages:
----------------
After killing Al Muaiam and returning to the real world, listen to the 
conversation about how they going to kill you. Turn on your Eagle Vision 
and look at the floor. There are some mixed up letters on both sides of 
the Amnius. You should see on the side closest to the main door: 

M O R Y M N O E S
E N C E O L C H T
H O N B T L O T C
T D E O S A T O A
P E D S N L S T F
L D D U O O E T E
E A I E I R I N T
H S H K T T K E R
T U A A A N S S A

To decode this, start reading at the bottom right hand corner to the top right 
hand corner, so you will start at "A" and stop at "S". It will spell a real 
word. Do this for all of the columns and it will read: 
ARTEFACTS SENT TO THE SKIES TO CONTROL ALL NATIONS TO MAKE US OBEY A HIDDEN 
CRUSADE DO NOT HELP THEM Next, do the same thing to the mixed letters on the 
other side of the Amnius: 

A
D R H
O O D T M
W H B I T D O
E U S Y S I N S E
A R O O M R E A Y N R
I S E Y T N I D L M I D E
T W I H W Y I E A U D A Y H T

It will spell out: 
THEY DRAINED MY SOUL AND MADE IT THEIRS I DRAINED MY BODY TO SHOW YOU WHERE 
I SAW IT.


Escaping from guards:
---------------------
Go to a high roof when chased. Kill the guards that appear. After a few kills 
they will either run or give up.

Lucy's computer:
----------------
One item you can pick up after being able to unlock your bedroom door is Lucy's 
password. You can then investigate her e-mails, which entail a short secondary 
story line. After you complete the last Memory Block, go back outside your room. 
Go to Lucy's computer. In "Deleted Items" is an e-mail which entails her talking 
to someone about a rescue, then the last reply comes back as: 
WondEr Why It is everyone Laughs at you?
i'll Let you guess.
let's just say she's proBably gEtTing it bigger and better from someone else tHat 
isn't you.
how can you hope to compEte?
REst asSured there are sOme gOod ways.
click the liNk to see!
Removing the capital letters out of the message decodes the message as:
WE WILL BE THERE SOON 

Easier interrogation:
---------------------
After you get the "target" to a safe area to "interrogate" them, punch them first 
then "grab" them for faster completions. It will take about two grabs to quickly 
finish them. However, into the last three quarters of the game you may have to 
grab them up to, but exceeding, four times.

Defeating William of Montferrat in Acre:
----------------------------------------
After the guards (or most of them) leave William, drop down from the castle and 
slay William. Afterward, "de-target" or deselect, and run up into the castle 
buildings and battlement to get away. This is the fastest way of completing the 
mission. 

Unlocking doors:
----------------
When you go to bed after Memory Block 2, you will notice your closet door is open. 
Hit any button to get a piece of paper Desmond notes as a code. The code will unlock 
your bedroom door which will allow you to be able to go out as often as you like 
after you are put to bed, as well as to open the meeting room area. 
You can also pick up various items to unlock Lucy's password.
