Kill People Without Penalty
After beating the game once, you can kill people in story mode without losing a life.
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.
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.
When in battle, if you see a guard you are fighting physically emote in any way (for example, taunting you or cowering in fear), press [Low Profile Assassinate] while facing them to score an instant kill without having to counter.
The best weapon for more than four guards or thugs is the Short Blade.
Sometimes the guards will beat up on you and it would seem as if your timing is off using the counter attack. To create a little breathing room, tap [Action/Use Your Weapon/Attack] twice, then "grab and push" the guard. Disregard the guard you grabbed and pushed, and attack the others using the same technique. There are two ways you can finish them. The first is, after you "grabbed and pushed" all of them, use a strong attack. They will fall quickly. The second method is to "grab and push" them again. They will not get up again.
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.
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.
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.

Removing the capital letters out of the message decodes the message as:
WE WILL BE THERE SOON
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:
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.
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).
1. Visit the Assassin's Guild.
2. Scan the city by first climbing all of the view points.
3. Rescue all the citizens from the thugs. You will need the help after a major assassination.
4. Complete all of the informant's missions (to get all the valuable information you can).
5. Pickpocket the shysters in all of the pickpocket missions (for information to the Guild).
6. When all of these are completed, go back to the Assassin's Guild and get ready for the major assassination mission.
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.
Easy citizen missions
When helping a citizen, do not just attack the guards. Hold the [LT] and press [X] with the dagger ready. This will eliminate one of the guards and give you a better chance. Sometimes you can assassinate two guards before they notice you.
Loud assassination - Hold [LB] + [RB] and press [X]. You can do this while running up to a guard and it almost always works from any angle. However it is noisy and causes civilians to run for guards.
Silent assassination - Hold [LB] and press [X]. It has less of a chance of working, and works best when used behind guards so no one hears you.
Easy "Eagle's Challenge" achievement
In Memory Block 1, after Al Mualim sends you to defend the fortress against the Templar attack, wait at the intersection/fork that is about 135 feet from the destination, just after the hill/path that leads to the Creed building. Guards will continuously respawn down the right fork. You can simply stand still and kill 25 guards, as your status will never leave "exposed", until you go to the destination.
Go to the entrance of Acre, but go through Kingdom. There is a base of soldiers. Start killing them but do not finish all of them. Start running to gather more. Kill a few and run again. Do this until you get the achievement. If you take long you may also unlock the "Eagle's Flight" achievement.
Easy "Eagle's Dive" achievement
In Masyaf, go to the castle. Enter the training arena and choose the option for combo kill. When you succeed three times the match will end. Select it again and continue until the achievement is unlocked.
Easy "Eagle's Flight" achievement
When you first reach Damascus and must save the citizen, kill two of the three guards. Back yourself into a stall or a corner that you cannot be pushed out of then hold [RT] to guard. In ten minutes you will have the achievement. You can also put a rubber band around your controller and LT and allow the game to idle.
Easy "Gifted Escapist" achievement
Go into any of the main cities. It is probably easiest to go to Damascus, Poor District. Find a merchant stand and start hopping through it. If you can find two that are next to each other it saves time. Keep jumping through the merchant stand(s) until you get the achievement.
Easy "March Of The Pious" achievement
This achievement is probably easiest to unlock in Damascus. Save the citizen in front of the main gates if you have not already done so. If you have already done that, go to the scholars. Blend in with them. As they get past the main array of guards, start pressing Deblend continuously. You should be going in and out of blend mode continuously. After a short time you should get the achievement.
When you first reach Damascus after saving the citizen you will learn how to blend with scholars. Enter this blend and exit it twenty times very quickly to unlock the achievement.
Easy "Vision Of The Future" achievement
After you complete the game, walk to your bedroom and use Eagle Vision on the wall behind your bed. Scan it from left and right the credits will start. After they end you will get the achievement.
Glitch: Easy "Eagle's Will" achievement
In the area after you first start the game, just after you see the Knights Templar enter the room containing the Ark Of The Covenant. Approach the ladder in front and jump to the left of it, as if to grab onto the ledge on the wall. You will fly through the wall and land behind it on a square outline. Walk towards the middle of this square and you will fall through, dying shortly afterwards. After you die you will unlock the "Eagle's Will" achievement.
Vidic's Access Pen
Before starting Memory Block 5, walk up behind Dr. Vidic and press any button to steal his pen. This will grant you access to his computer and emails.
