Assassin’s Creed Identity Tips, Cheats and Strategies

Assassin’s Creed Identity puts you in the shoes of an elite member of the Assassin’s Brotherhood, and you’ll have to play it smart if you hope to survive the mean streets of Renaissance Italy. Assassin’s Creed Identity takes the series’ iconic gameplay and translates it to the small screen, and it’s quite a bit more complicated than most mobile games. Gamezebo’s Assassin’s Creed Identity tips, cheats, and strategies will help make you a master assassin and bring the Templar Order to its knees.

Choose a Class

Assassin’s Creed Identity has four classes, three of which are available from the start of the game.

Bring a Friend

Assassin’s Creed Identity includes a social feature called Hirelings. Hirelings can be summoned once a mission to take care of an enemy, but their real usefulness comes from their passive buffs.

However, once you use a hireling’s active ability, their passive ability vanishes for the rest of your mission.

Use Your Skills

Combat in Assassin’s Creed Identity is simplified in comparison to the console versions. Most of the dodging and parrying are done automatically based on your stats, so to even the odds you’ll have to use your special skills.

Pulling the skill wheel up from the bottom of the screen allows access to your skills. This lets you pull off moves that can quickly turn the tide of battle and allow you to take on large groups of enemies.

Also, play attention to the meter at the bottom of the screen. It fills a bit each time you land an attack, and once it’s full, you can tap it to execute an instant kill.

Look Before You Leap

The parkour system in Assassin’s Creed Identity is a bit more touchy than its console brethren. To aid you, Ubisoft introduced the Parkour Helper, which is a white line that shows you where you can parkour to, and how you’ll land if you jump off a ledge.

You can also make a jump by tapping where you want to go. Sometimes this is the easiest way to make a jump since it allows for more precision than using the virtual thumbstick.

Contract Missions

These side missions aren’t part of the main story, but that doesn’t make them any less relevant for you. These short, direct missions are an excellent way to get extra experience points, level skills, and gain extra coins. After the campaign, you can also start earning Hero Tokens in them.

Hero Tokens

Hero Tokens are premium currency you must use to purchase new locations, contract mission types, and better character options. It won’t be until after the intro campaign, A Murder of Crows, after which you start earning Hero Tokens. However, once you do, every contract mission completed will earn you some tokens.
