    Bayek didn't had to cut off his finger to use the hidden blade, he accidentally cut his finger while assassinating Eudoros the Hippo

      Manoj Kumar 6 months ago +103

      during his assassination of eudoros the snake
      Edit :- according to story , Bayek Refer Eudoros as snake , so i got confused due to that , Eudoros was the Hippo according to order of the ancient map

      @MafiaRTX what is spoiling in this?? Bro most of the viewer of his channel already played all assassin creed till Valhalla , and if you are saying that giving spoilers of a game released 6yrs ago , man how it becomes spoilers?

      @Manoj Kumar dude few people like me have not played this game. Don't be rude. I didn’t make mistake

    For those still confused:
    Altair wrote the codex we find in AC2 which details the new schematics of the hidden blade. This "new" design bypasses the need to sacrifice the ring finger.
    Proof? In revelations, Altair in his 60s and older has dual hidden blades, and his right hand still has his ring finger.
    Altair also developed hidden blade combat. By giving the blade mechanism armor, this gives the user a chance to defend against enemies with much longer weapons.
    Notice how you can't really fight with hidden blades in Valhalla? Ezio's second blade has actual armor, made straight from Altair's codex.

    • Rahul Sar
      Rahul Sar 5 months ago +78

      Also I think Altair actually designed the Hidden gun. Even Da Vince said these hidden blades upgrades and even more advanced than the Renaissance Revolution Era.

    • Darwin Uang
      Darwin Uang 5 months ago +59

      @Rahul Sar yes.
      as shown in Assassin's Creed Revelations, Altaïr invented the Hidden Gun, using knowledge he gained from the Apple of Eden. he later tried to use the Gun on Abbas Sofian (then the self-proclaimed Mentor of the Levantine Brotherhood of Assassins, after driving Altaïr out of Masyaf and forcing him into exile for 20 years), resulting in Abbas's death.
      and yeah, Altaïr thought the removal of a finger in order to use the Hidden Blade was a "false promise of paradise". so he redesigned the Hidden Blade so that the ring finger no longer had to be removed. of course, this doesn't change the fact that his left hand no longer has a ring finger...

    • Nandhakishor V S
      Nandhakishor V S 5 months ago +35

      @Darwin Uang I think ive also seen a theory that the ringfinger removal was modified and avoided as a tactic so that the assassins cannot be identified quickly as anyone walking without a ringfinger could be marked easily

    • Darwin Uang
      Darwin Uang 5 months ago +28

      @Nandhakishor V S indeed, the early Levantine Assassins could be identified by their missing ring fingers (if I recall correctly, Altaïr himself was identified using this method once). this is also one of the reasons why Altaïr created the new Hidden Blade.

    • Sleef RCD
      Sleef RCD 5 months ago +7

      The devs keep trying to make a new altair but keeps failing. Personally i neber played ac1 but i love it and love nit playing it somehow. It gives a sense of vagueness and the information yoru given by him in the later ac games seem to say he was the greatest assassin to ever live. People criticized revelations, but for me, revelations was a BADASS game! Some of the gameplay was bad but the story was amazing! 9/10 ACR, 9/10 AC2, 9.5/10 ACB. 10/10 AC Ezio collection, you get whst you paid for but at a discount + dlc!

    I love the rotation mechanism on Connor's hidden blade so he could wield it as a dagger. It doesn't get enough appreciation.

    • DeathMamba
      DeathMamba 3 months ago +2

      Same bro, same! Hell, I see shadow blade as it is an upgraded version of Ezio's hidden gunblade!

    • TmothyOz
      TmothyOz 3 months ago +9

      Yesss! That was one of my favorite things about AC3. It was so badass. Ezio’s hookblade in revelations was dope too!

    • DeathMamba
      DeathMamba 3 months ago

      Well good usage for roof to roof travel but thank good Frye's upgraded it to a grappling hook system which is not blade but add-on advancement on their gaunlets!

    Arno's hands down, sleek simple and versatile with a modest upgrade. Something I would picture a stealthy and light on their feet assassin to wield

    • Th3Prowl3r
      Th3Prowl3r 6 months ago +6

      @Majin Muu feel like they should've kept that style with the games moving forward, though I don't mind the throwing knife/axe assassination but I feel as though they could've had both. One for targets right next to each other and the other for targets further away

    The hook blade has two parts, you see. The hook and the blade.

      And I love how in the game it's only ever a hook lol. So you just stab somebody with this huge blunt hook. It is kinda good but I enjoy it

  • TopDoom Slayer
    TopDoom Slayer 6 months ago +306

    I’d say design wise, I favor Ezio’s hidden blades from Revelations, including the hookblade. But when it comes to practicality, I’d say Connor/Ratonhnhaké:ton’s hidden blades were best. But overall, I’d say that my personal favorite of them all has to be Eivor’s hidden blade from Valhalla.

    • Damoose 7
      Damoose 7 6 months ago +12

      Fair, eivors is the most intricate design wise and I'll always love the rotating blade connor uses

    • Tiny Richard

    • TheSnep

      @Tiny Richard Didn't you know? Eivor's is called a visible blade.

    • DeciMation

      @TheSnep Nah, it’s just a blade, a blade he stabs through people's necks with extreme force.

  • DarkKnight6six6
    DarkKnight6six6 5 months ago +43

    I kind of love the irony that Eivor, the character most opposite of the traditional assassins, wears the blade as originally intended, on the outside of the arm as we see in the first blade dlc.

    • For The Brotherhood
      For The Brotherhood 2 months ago +4

      It's funny how ubisoft forgot AC 2 clearly showing him the hidden blade being mounted as a hidden blade, not a combat blade.

  • Turbo Radman
    Turbo Radman 3 months ago +7

    I love Eivor's reaction to the hidden blade. Pretty much goes how you'd expect when giving one to a viking. "This thing's awesome, why would I want to hide it? If im gonna kill someone, they're gonna know about it."

  • JackFRipper
    JackFRipper 5 months ago +56

    I love Arno’s hidden blade, despite it not being dual he was stylish with it and the phantom blade shots were a great tool for distance kills

    • L3g1t
      L3g1t 5 months ago +10

      He didnt need duals, he could make double kills with just one

    • Hannibal Burgers

    • ChernoAlfaΩ
      ChernoAlfaΩ 3 months ago

      @Hannibal Burgers yes although Altaïr did it first, I still think the phantom blade was better because the cannon was very loud and crude

    Actually Kassandra acquired a Hidden Blade during her travels around the world. When she met Eivor for the first time, they had a short crossing of their respective blades.

    • Allan M. Hanson
      Allan M. Hanson 6 months ago +15

      I wan't to see how she got involved with the brotherhood.
      Imagine if Aya herself gave Kassandra her hidden blade. You actually get the hidden blade in Odyssey when you finish the last DLC and Kassandra goes to Egypt.
      A family reunion would be just incredible.

    • Halley reus
      Halley reus 6 months ago +3

      @Allan M. Hanson yeah, that would be cool

    • Halley reus
      Halley reus 6 months ago +4

      I dont remember that, I remember in my gameplay eivor uses the hidden blade to defend and kassandra uses a sword, but I can be wrong

    • FelixTeeberg
      FelixTeeberg 6 months ago +6

      @Halley reus "Crossing" was meant a bit figuratively. But we see both use them, and each looking a bit confused , the other having one.
      It's even used in promotional artwork for the DLC

    • Halley reus
      Halley reus 6 months ago

      @FelixTeeberg ah, I get It, interesting

  • the slayer
    the slayer 5 months ago +20

    I've always loved that each game brought a new Deliverance of hidden blade it really sucks that they went back to the style of one single blade in the later games but hands down I think Connor has the best hidden blade of all not only does he have two but one of his hidden blades can flip out to be a small dagger which can be combo with many other weapons other than just hidden blades ezio's hook blade comes in second for me and arno's phantom blade is definitely a runner-up however Connor's just has more usage

  • Ôkami Sanjuro
    Ôkami Sanjuro 6 months ago +46

    I love the foot blade of Shao Jun, so gymnastic and stylish, and the three headed blade of Arbaaz Mir, very useful to ward off attacks. Too bad they don't appear in this video.

  • Ásragin Kyron
    Ásragin Kyron 4 months ago +2

    It really is interesting to see how the blade changed over time, both in-game as well as by lore-history.
    We see the first blade being used over the hand both by the unnamed assailant who attacked Cassandra/Alexios, and in the assassination of Xerxes by Darius, but the same blade is under the arm when used centuries later by Aya. After that, only a Viking carried it over the arm.

  • TheMightyWolfie
    TheMightyWolfie 4 months ago +3

    Always loved the Phantom Blade design in Unity. It's the best in my opinion. If combined with the grappling mechanism in Syndicate, it would be the most powerful and versatile Hidden Blade in the franchise

  • TeaInnIT
    TeaInnIT 6 months ago +22

    Arno's phantom blade is the best in my opinion, very helpful when doing heists and I feel more like an assassin when using it.

  • Hyperr 109
    Hyperr 109 5 months ago +27

    Yeah sure Arno's blades are cool but Connors are the coolest by a landslide. Just the fact that you can flip them out into daggers is so cool and shows a new level of skill is required. They're really only the kind of hidden blades that an extremely skilled assassin could effectively make use of.

    • ChernoAlfaΩ
      ChernoAlfaΩ 3 months ago

      Actually only the right blade could be turned into a dagger I think

    • Phantom Wolf
      Phantom Wolf 2 months ago

      @ChernoAlfaΩ no it was actually both if you watch closely when fighting with the hidden blades or doing a double assassination you can see both blades went into daggers

  • The_Swordman1
    The_Swordman1 5 months ago +11

    I miss the uniqueness of the hidden blades like the hook blade (from AC:R), phantom blade (from AC: Unity) and the grapple blade (from AC: Sydicate).

  • Rafael Figueirêdo
    Rafael Figueirêdo 4 months ago +8

    It's funny to think that Eivor technically uses the hidden blade correctly purely to show off and the hidden ones/assassins use it the wrong way. wonder what Darius would make of this whole situation lol.

    AcTuAlLy, the blade aya gave to bayek is a replica of Darius’ blade. Aya kept the real one, you can see it in photo mode they look exactly the same while bayek’s looks completely different(makes sense considering she is a descendant of darius and the blade is bound to her by blood). When she said it killed xerxes she probably meant it was that weapon system was used to kill him, not that exact blade.

    • Nick F.
      Nick F. 5 months ago +3

      Nah, she literally says this blade killed Xerxes. So Bayek has the original one. She has the replica

  • Aradhya Sakpal
    Aradhya Sakpal 5 months ago +3

    Ezio's looks the most beautiful with the Italian design and has 2 of them. He hides it well with his cap and is very sharp and extremely effective as a tool of weapon.
    He takes this as the best Blade imo. But I also love Altaïr and Arno's

  • Fabio Poma
    Fabio Poma 6 months ago +142

    Hello. Did you know that the Phantom blade was also an invention of Leonardo da Vinci?
    In Assassin's Creed Project Legacy is said that an italian Assassin named Francesco Vecellio (who also existed in reality, and was a painter) was an apprentice and former killer for Ezio Auditore during the time between Brotherhood and Revelations, and to complete a mission Francesco asked his mentor (Ezio) to have a hidden gun like the Ezio's one, but Ezio refused because he considered the Hidden gun inadequate for a not enough skilled Assassin like Francesco
    However, he decided to accept anyway his request to have a medium distance adequate weapon (and to give him a more silent and less dangerous one) and asked Leonardo to create something with that characteristics
    And so... the Phantom blade was born, and the first Assassin to use one was Francesco Vecellio
    It's a shame that they didn't mention at least the name of Leonardo or Francesco in Unity when Mirabeau introduced the Phantom blade, but probably given the low quality of the game, the devs didn't even knew about Project Legacy

    • ж
      ж 6 months ago +5

      Ah yes the Devs didn't know about their own project

    • Fabio Poma
      Fabio Poma 6 months ago +15

      @ж yes because it's not their own. At the start of every game you see always "produced by Ubisoft Montreal", or Ubisoft Quebec, or Ubisoft whatever, and the writers are never the same for the games (for example the writer of Valhalla is the same for AC4 and Revelations but not for the other two Ezio's game, Odyssey and Syndicate have the same devs too but not Origins, and so on)
      Project Legacy came out at the time of Brotherhood in 2010 and was forgotten, in fact even 80% of fans don't even know about it, and it's no news that the several studios don't communicate between them and this is why you see a lot of plot holes in the games, retcons or just contrasting lore in different games. You can thank the excessive division of mansions for that, without a unique head to coordinate everything

    • ж

    I didn’t enjoy and play the later games (odyssey/valhalla) but I do like that Darius was an overhand blade user and then later on, Eivor was too but they got disrespected for it. I doubt the assassin who called them out didn’t even know Darius was like that too

    TANO TANO 5 months ago +6

    Ezio blade had most versitile design. Pretty much three in one. A blade, a pistol, and a dart gun. The hook came later, but damn, finishers were brutal.

    • Breader
      Breader 5 months ago

      I love revelations so damn much, its probably my favourite because it ends his story and also the finisher with the sword where you stab in the neck and spin it around is so badass

  • LoneWolf916
    LoneWolf916 3 months ago +1

    I think the only one that truly earned the hidden blade is Connor Kenway, yes of course altair earned it, it also because he was in the assassin's brotherhood, but connor earned it because he wins Achilles' heart and truly became his successor

  • Halley reus
    Halley reus 6 months ago +3

    In my opinion arno’s, bayek’s and altaïr’s hidden blades are the best, I like the fact It’s just 1 blade, I can assimilate more with a stealth assassin, but in gameplay two hidden blades are most useful.

  • Nikki Hamilton
    Nikki Hamilton 5 months ago +6

    My favorite hidden blade is probably from Altair. The sound the hidden blade makes when you assasinate someone is so satisfying. Its a crime that they didn't keep that sound for every assassination

  • Danuja Abeywickrama

    Arno's is effective cause of the design, easy to carry and only to stealth kill enemies but the best one is Bayek's cause every upgrade to the blade changes the design and the materials

    Aradhya Sakpal 5 months ago +2

    When you realize Altaïr constructed the path for Ezio to run.
    God these 2 Assassin's have such a High place in my mind.
    I have respect for Altaïr doing everything he did with the Apple and Ezio for being the best with the liberty he had to earn everything. He didn't just use it like it was a gift...he earned everything he had. Only difference being....he had no clue Altaïr walked so he could run. Glad in Revelations they made it indirectly clear....Dos Legends

  • somebody
    somebody 6 months ago +13

    I understand the "viking honor" part but unless you got a longer blade having it on the outside is not practical. In every game it showed the blade range a but after the fingers when extended,
    But you could still turn your hand upward and so stab deep if needed.
    So a normal blade that is on the outside won't be able to stab deep

    • Micha G
      Micha G 5 months ago

      I think it has nothing to do with honor and that's just tounge and cheek, she thinks that the blade is what cut off their fingers and doesn't want to lose hers, so she puts it on top. Also it wouldn't matter top or bottom, if the point the blade comes out of is aligned with the wrist it would be the same distance top or bottom.

    • Breader
      Breader 5 months ago

      @Micha G but you can't bend your hand as much down as up, and it hurts if you do so

    • Micha G
      Micha G 5 months ago

      ​@Breader I mean you can if you have wrist flexiblility and it doesn't matter you don't flex your had up when it's on bottom, the point is you more or less put your hand on them and the blade comes out. your hand would be at about a 45, where as on top Evior uses it as a dagger striking with it out, instead of putting the opening against their target and firing it in. idk i played through 4, then just got valhalla, but either way you put it, it works just fine, it's clearly meant to but used under as a sort of wrist mounted switch blade, but it works just as well as top wrist mounted fixed blade, like baraka from MK.
      The thing to remember with it on top is you just have to clear the blade, if you have it 10degree down of 90, it makes no difference so long as the blade doesn't shoot into your hand, since it's not intended to be fought with it's mean for one quick stab to the liver or throat (The xray kills in game look like eivor uses a sword to perform them instead of the hidden blade so i don't think they use it very much, unlike ezio or Altiar.)

    Eivor is shaming the assassin hidden blade and saying she won't make the same mistake the assassins cut their ring finger on purpose in honor of Bayek who lost his finger while using the blade with an open arm and he too said the blade doesnt need a ring finger sacrifice

    I like evior's method all the way. I'm sorry but it was odd for a weapon like this to be used how the hidden ones use it ever since. Sure its a stealth weapon but I value my fingers and felt like I was the predator

    I think it is ok to call Darius’ blade a hidden blade right? That’s what the wiki calls it at least. So is that technically the first hidden blade?

    Y’all I really like AC Valhalla she didn’t hide the blade did it like a true Viking I mean during that game you could hide in the grass and stealth kill people or you could decide to go out on an all attack sometimes in that game I like to do still heels just for the fun of it but yes I do love the old assassin Creed games

      Useful, yes but the problem with them was they stood out too much, especially in that time period. The amount of armor, the dart launcher and the bulky glove really should've given them away as suspicious individuals if not assassins.

      Because most people aren’t realizing, that was the way it was intended 😂 Darius forged the blade to kill Xeroxes and when Bayek obtained the blade he wore the wrong way and cut off his finger lmao.

    But in Valhalla DLC, we see Kassandra with another hidden blade. The question is... who gave it to her?

    • SomeSnake ™
      SomeSnake ™ 6 months ago +8

      Well by that time, Kassandra is atleast over 1000 years old, and it seems safe to say she probably met a hidden one, also another thing to note, she was in Egypt at one point, so she may of met a hidden one.

    • Sir_Beatdown101
      Sir_Beatdown101 6 months ago +4

      She may have learned to make one on her own. That could also be a possibility considering her father in law invented it. I'm sure at some point she got curious on how it worked and learned from him during the first DLC.

    • TheHammerGuy Plays
      TheHammerGuy Plays 6 months ago +1

      Considering the ancients' goal is to obtain isu artifacts for control, and Kassandra gave herself a lifelong duty to stop these from falling into the ancients' hands (straight from her mouth) at some point, she saw the war between the ancients and the hidden ones unfold. Since her goals align with the hidden ones, she probably was gifted one by a hidden one bureau who she allied with.
      Just like Eivor, she is an agent of the Hidden ones, but not with them. The hidden blade was a more of a symbol of her allegiance.

    Aya said the Hidden Blade is weapon used to kill Xerxes, and in Odyssey DLC we saw Darius using the blade in outer arms like Eivor. So why suddenly Bayek and Aya used it under the arms and resulting in finger mutilation? Is it because Hidden Blade is a lost weapon that don't have manuscript to describe it?

    • TheHammerGuy Plays
      TheHammerGuy Plays 6 months ago +3

      Well, I guess we know who to blame why the ring fingerectomy tradition exists.
      Then Altair, through the guidance of the apple, discovered that the lack of the ring finger violates the 2nd tenet. After a millenia of war with the ancients and the hidden ones, the ancients noticed every hidden one has a missing ring finger, which gives away their identity.
      This led to Altair redesigning the blade to be extra stealthy...
      By removing the sacrifice requirement.

    • TurtleBerries

      I believe you are correct on that reason. Eivor just liked it on top.

    • GenshinStar
      GenshinStar 6 months ago +2

      because the answer itself lies in the name "hidden" blade Darius use it in the way it was convenient to him ,same apple for Eivor .The finger mutilation happened because Bayek used the blade with a fist resulting in the finger being cut but it became a tradition or to show commitment to the brotherhood

  • Nyl John Victor Acierto

    A minor design error on Ubisoft about the hidden blade not matching in Odyssey and Origins. The hidden blade in Odyssey was much wider and was worn above the forearm, the hidden blade in Origins is thinner and is worn below the forearm

    • Sir_Beatdown101

      I just realized: how come that blade wasn't passed down to Aya? If Darius was her ancestor then you'd figure it would be passed down to his grandchild's offspring, then the next, then the next but it somehow ended up in Cleopatra's hands to give to Aya, to give to Bayek. If there's an answer can anyone explain?

    • Worst Than Average Gamer

      @TeaInnIT that and bayek can upgrade the blade to be more powerful and suitable. Each upgrade changes the look of the blade as well

    • TurtleBerries
      TurtleBerries 6 months ago

      @Sir_Beatdown101 Aya keeps the blade. Bayek has a replica(can see in photo mode when playing as Aya or if you have eagle eyes in some cutscenes). But I also do wonder how it ended up in cleopatras hands.

    Was Shay already a master when he was training since he had double bladeS? Was Avélin a master assassins since she had double blades as well? Nah, it was just cool to have two hidden blades that’s all

    All of this because Bayek's fault. Don't know why they add it as a custom to cut your finger. I ever wondered why Assassin must cut out his finger to use hidden blade, and finally answered that all of this because of Bayek carelessness.
