**WARNING**: Make sure you backup your saved files or make a new saved game so that your current game will not affect this glitch!
Hello hello, fellow reader!
Do you ever have that feeling that you really, really, and once again, REALLY want to remove the bow at the back of Connor? Sometimes you want it removed because it ruined the outfits, or sometimes you just want to see Connor without it.
Here's a good tutorial for you fellow player(!), **but** take note that if you apply this glitch to your main game you will never be able to bring the bow back ever again unless the whole ton of forums/threads complaining about the glitch got Ubisoft's attention and urgency to fix it for the next patch (if ever there will be).
Alright then, let's start!
Blue Text: Console Controller
Purple Test: Xbox Controller
Green Text: PC Keyboard/Mouse
Step 1: The Setup
Assign one of the slots for your Bow and Arrow and Horse Whistle
- Bow and Arrow; Left Arrow/1
- Horse Whistle; Down Arrow/4
However, you can toggle any keys as long as you are comfortable with it! Then have your Hidden Blades equipped.
Step 2: Taking Action
Now that you have everything settled, it's time to do _**DA THING**_.
Equip the Bow and Arrow. As you press Triangle/Y/Q to take out Connor's bow from his back (make sure the draw animation starts), press the toggle key for the Horse Whistle AND THEN quickly hold Square/X/Left-Click for the Hidden Blade (make sure you keep holding the Hidden Blade until Connor wields it). Everything mentioned must be done for only a second or even less! Yeap, meaning you have to be swift!
To know that you've done it right, Connor can use the Hidden Blade while holding his bow on his right-hand while you have the Horse Whistle toggled on your tool.
Step 3: The Submission
For the final step, at this part you have to look for a group of redcoats/patriots/militias with only 2 members. Face the group on their left/right side and run towards them. As you run towards them, apply the double assassination kill sequence wherein Connor stabs the first enemy and then jump-stabs towards the second one as he passes through the first one.
After following these steps;
- Did Connor dropped the bow? Yes
- Did the bow float after applying Step 3? Yes
- No more bow at your back? Effin' Yes
And there you have it! If you have any questions regarding this tutorial, please write them below on the comments! I hope you'll have a more fun experience to the game with the help of this glitch. Enjoy!

> Can you do this with any other weapons
If you mean being able to remove weapons with the help of this method, then no. There is this method however:
- Look for a treasure that requires lockpicking.
- Once you've found one, equip the weapon you desire to remove, and wield it.
- Engage lockpicking while wielding the weapon, and you'll see Connor dropping the weapon on the floor because he was too lazy to sheath it. XD
This method can be done with Tomahawks, Knives, Swords, and Heavy Weapons.

> Why would you want to take away a weapon..?
Many gamers who have played all through Assassin's Creed are having this kind of feeling of wanting something to change in their game. Sometimes you just want to walk all across the city of the game without carrying any lethal weapons around. Funny how the game developers never gave the players an opportunity to remove their weapons (and armors from the previous games). I also had found a video about having this glitch; some users on the comments section were even asking how to do that lol. Besides, the bow was very rarely used on the entire game (sadly). :/
EDIT: However on my point of view, I just wanted to remove that weapon because it's somehow unfitting from the majority of the game's outfits for the character. No biggie really. :]
