From GuildWiki

This article is about the profession Assassin. For the enemy, see Assassin (monster).
A female Assassin in Luxon armor

The Assassin is a ninja-themed profession introduced in Guild Wars Factions. Complemented by their primary attribute, Assassins are capable of dealing large amounts of damage in quick, short periods of time. As its name suggests, Critical Strikes increases the Assassin's chance to inflict a critical hit. Furthermore, successive points in Dagger Mastery increase their chances to double strike - that is, hitting a target twice in one attack. Despite being lightly armored, Assassins possess several self-enhancing skills that increase the chance to block. The Assassin's key ability is the Shadow Step. As the name implies, it allows them to quickly move in and out of battle through instantaneously teleporting to a target, friend or foe. Relying on luck and illusion, the patron goddess of Assassins is Lyssa, though dealing in death they also have ties to Grenth.

Assassins are very vulnerable to damage due to their weak armor. You should never charge into the middle of a fight but rather look for key foes such as Mesmers that may shut down your Monk. Assassins focus on killing their enemies quickly before they have a chance to mount a counter-assault, even more so if you attract the attention of their Monk. While an Assassin should focus on causing damage, some healing skills are required such as Way of Perfection or defensive skills such as Critical Defenses to stay alive. If things go bad, escaping from battle is advised by using protective buffs such as Shroud of Distress or Feigned Neutrality. However, Assassins are key to some of the most powerful groups, as dealing hard, swift strikes allows for an easy run.

The primary Assassin's base armor provides 70 armor, +5 energy, and +2 energy recovery. A starting primary Assassin begins with 25 base energy and 4 energy recovery.

The Assassin's primary attribute is Critical Strikes, which increases its critical hit rates.

Dagger Attack Chains

All Assassin dagger skills chain into a combo - certain attacks must follow other attacks.

  1. A lead attack can be made at anytime. If a lead attack is successful, a slash mark Image:LeadAttack.png will appear on your opponent's health bar.
  2. An off-hand attack usually requires a lead attack mark on the target. If an off-hand attack is successful, a cross mark Image:OffHand.png will appear on your opponent's health bar.
  3. A dual attack usually requires an off-hand attack mark on the target. If a dual attack is successful, a starburst mark Image:DualAttack.png will appear on your opponent's health bar.

The next attack skill in the sequence must hit before the required mark fades. Each mark lasts for about twenty seconds from when it is given. Normal attacks and/or other skills may be used in between without interrupting the attack sequence.

If a successful attack hits, it will reset the sequence with its position in the chain. That is, if a lead attack hits a target who is already marked by an off-hand attack Image:OffHand.png, it will reset the target's status back to a lead attack Image:LeadAttack.png.

If a dagger attack skill is used out of sequence, the skill consumes energy as normal, but the attack misses and recharges instantly. Since out-of-sequence attack skills always miss, they have no effect on the skill chain.

Some off-hand and dual attacks have exceptions to this chain, such as Falling Spider, which is an off-hand attack that must hit a knocked down foe, but does not need to follow a lead attack. Some non-attack skills and spells act as lead or off-hand attacks like Dancing Daggers. Other skills must follow lead-, off-hand- or dual attacks, such as Blinding Powder or Impale.

For more help on dagger chains, see the quick reference for Assassin chain attacks.

Skill chains are crucial to the Assassin's damage; since daggers have the lowest damage of any weapon in the game (7-17 maximum damage), even their blazing attack speed (from double strikes and a high critical hit rate from Critical Strikes) will result in little more than pinpricks of damage against any but the weakest foes. However, the Assassin shines in the armor-ignoring bonus damage granted by attack skills, most notably dual attacks as any bonus damage they do is doubled - assuming both attacks successfully hit. Many players who are new to the Assassin class focus more on their high critical hit rate (an understandable fixation, given how much critical hits hurt when used with, say, hammers or scythes), and thus overload their skill bars with defensive shadow steps or other trickery, relying solely on their critical hits and natural attack speed to deal damage.

Attributes

  • Critical Strikes (primary attribute): For each rank in Critical Strikes, your chance for critical hits increases by 1%, and you gain 1 energy for 3 ranks or above, 2 energy for 8 ranks or above, or 3 energy at 13 ranks or above each time you successfully land a critical hit.
  • Dagger Mastery: With a skill list of rapid chain attacks, Daggery Mastery increases the damage you do with daggers and the chance to inflict a critical hit with daggers. Each rank also increases your chance to double strike by 2%.
  • Deadly Arts: With an ensnaring skill list, Deadly Arts increases the effectiveness of hexes that make enemies more vulnerable to your attacks.
  • Shadow Arts: With a defensive skill list, Shadow Arts increases the effectiveness of self-augmentative and shadow-stepping spells.

Notes

  • For various reasons, it was sometimes difficult for Assassins to be able to get into PvE PUGs. When the class was new, many new players attempted to make Assassins and play them as tanks, giving the profession a negative reputation which has followed it for its entire history. However, due to various buffs, especially the Sunspear PvE only skill, Critical Agility, this is no longer the case.
  • Assassin henchmen tend to be the first dead in battle. This is because of all the classes, Assassins require the most "organization." The order in which skills are used, as well as the timing of movement and proximity to foes, conveys concepts impossible for henchmen AI to properly handle. For this reason, the majority of players who use Assassin heroes tend to have them play builds centered around the combination of Critical Strikes and another weapon: usually a bow (using Barrage) or a scythe (using Wounding Strike).

(Redirected to The Fixer's Assassinations article)

From Grand Theft Wiki

The Fixer's assassinations are a string of assassination missions given to the player in Grand Theft Auto IV. Niko Bellic can get to the missions by visiting a payphone in Southern Alderney, where a cutscene shows The Fixer briefing Bellic. It is not required to do these missions to continue with the storyline, but they do count towards 100% completion of the game.

Contents

Activating the missions

Following Phil Bell's first mission, he will call the player's character, Niko Bellic, stating that someone has some side-jobs for him. A man known as "The Fixer" wants Niko to assassinate some enemies. To start these missions, the player should go to a designated location in Odhner Ave., Acter, Alderney marked with a crosshair icon, and walk to a pay phone to contact "The Fixer". When the player succeeds in completing all his assassinations, "The Fixer" will contact the player to voice his satisfaction, stating the player has "cleared a lot of files" for him, and wishes to cut ties with the player. "The Fixer" will not appear again after.

Missions

For every mission, the player will be provided information on where the target is, along with a body armor and a specific weapon suited for the mission in hand behind the pay phone. Like Brucie Kibbutz's exotic exports and Stevie's car thefts, individual assassination missions are played out in random order. In addition, the missions predominantly take place in Alderney.

Water Hazard

The target is on a boat anchored just off shore. You may want to use an RPG to send her down with the ship, or shoot them with a sniper rifle.

Dead End

The target is in Alderney, when you come close to them they will drive away and you will have to give chase, however they will lure you into an ambush where you will have to take out many enemies.

If you take a cab to the destination, watch them drive away and then run towards their destination - you will get there after the ambush has arrived and you can easily take them out using your assault rifle.

Migration Control

The target is attempting to catch a helicopter. Use a RPG and blow it up when they gets on it, or shoot them with a sniper rifle.

Derelict Target

There are 3 heavily guarded targets to be wiped out in a stripped out building in Alderney City. This is a hard mission because the police get involved regardless of whether or not you shoot anybody - it's scripted so when you get to the level where the second person is, the cops will come starting at a 1 star level and going up to two stars once you shoot another baddie. Of course, you end up killing policemen and your wanted level goes up to 3 stars. The easiest way to do this is to get a helicopter, go to the street level where you can see two of the targets, sniper them, and then fly to the roof of the same building and through the partially destroyed roof shoot the third person. If you do attract police, just fly away.

Bailing Out for Good

This target is bailing out of a police station. Kill him outside it or chase him down when he gets in his car and kill him that way. If you "accidentally" run into him killing him, the mission is passed as well.

Hook, Line and Sinker

The target is on a boat, use a boat to get closer and give chase, shooting the boat until it explodes.

R.U.B. Down

The target is in the industrial park not far to the south. However there are actually three, and they are all on bikes. Chase them down and kill them. You can also sneak to them (but not too close or they will get away) and stealthy shoot them from rocket launcher, or throw grenade (at good time)/molotov cocktail at them.

Industrial Action

Three more targets have to be taken out at the industrial park. They are up high on some walkways, and are guarded by a number of guards. The best way is to use a sniper form the north side and pick off as many as you can. Then get closer and take out the rest.

Note:' There is a $10,000 bonus on this contract. In the middle walkway between the two towers there is a sports bag that contains the money (presumably for the deal). To get the cash simply walk up to the bag.

Taken Out

The target is moving in a convoy. Take a good handling car and drive up towards the target. The convoy is a stretch and two SUVs. If you are in a helicopter, slowly and methodically crash into the limousine, which pretty much makes it undriveable, and then just drill everybody with your assault rifle.

Trivia

  • The mission name Hook, Line and Sinker is a reference to the common phrase of the same name

(Redirected to Assassin Medal article)

From Halopedia, the Halo Wiki

4.88
(24 votes)

The Assassin Medal is awarded and achieved for meleeing an opponent from behind. It is available in all Multiplayer gametypes and has a Bungie difficulty rating of 2 out of 10. It is represented by a ninja face on a shrunken star after you kill an opponent by meleeing the player in the back, a message appears on your screen that states: "You assassinated (player's name)". The Assassin Medal is also a medal in the Halo 3 campaign when Campaign Scoring is turned on and activated in the Meta Game. It is a very common occurrence in multiplayer.

The victim can sometimes avoid this by turning around before the attacker has a chance to get a hit in, as it will count as a normal beatdown, though there are rare occurrences where this will still result in an assassination. There are also occurrences where direct frontal punches results in an assassination, while assassinations sometimes result in beatdowns due to the attacker meleeing to the side. An assassination can be gained by hitting the right shoulder whilst hitting the left will be a beatdown and not an insta-kill.

If you assassinate three players on a Legendary Map Pack map, either Avalanche, Ghost Town, or Blackout, the achievement "Came...From...Behind" will be unlocked for 50 Gamerscore. Also, the achievement can be earned on a Mythic Map Pack map, Assembly, Orbital, or any Sandbox variant.

Trivia

  • In Halo 3, even an invulnerable player can be assassinated.
  • It is possible for two players to assassinate each other. This happens mostly when one player jumps over the other, the other one below looks up and melees whilst the one flying over looks down and melees. If timed well, they will assassinate each other.
  • One way to assassinate someone is to jump right before they try to assassinate you. Once you jump, melee and you will assassinate them. This is sometimes difficult to perform, but your radar can be a useful tool when attempting this.
  • If you hit the right shoulder of a player it will count as an assassination, but if you hit the left it will act as a regular hit.

A female assassin.
"Explanation: You see, master, assassination is such a versatile tool. I have seen the removal of a single target have far-reaching consequences for a nation, world, even a galaxy. The repercussions of even the smallest lives... whether dead or alive, can have profound implications on history."
HK-47

Assassins were beings or machines trained to kill other beings, either for hire or for political gain.

Characteristics

A Clawdite assassin targeting an Imperial officer.

Members of the profession were referred to by many euphemisms and epithets: "problem solvers" in the Corporate Sector Authority, "exterminators" in the Outer Rim Territories, and "slayers" in the Core Worlds. Whatever their name, most professional assassins were concerned solely with credits, though some killed for political or religious reasons, or merely for love of killing. This made assassins simultaneously the best paid and most despised members of the galaxy's underworld.

Many bounty hunters who had no objections to killing their targets or working for criminals straddled the line between assassin and bounty hunter.

Types of assassins

There were several orders of assassins in the galaxy including the Assassin's Guild, the Fpi Assassins, the Loag, the Malkite Poisoners, and the GenoHaradan.

While assassins could come from a variety of sentient species, some species were disproportionately represented in the profession. These included Anzat, Tyluun Night-Soarers, Kerestians, Bartokk, Noghri, and Blood Carvers.

Droids built to kill, such as IG-88, HK-47, 4-LOM, and ASN-121, were known as assassin droids.

Clone assassins were specialized clone troopers trained to kill jedi with the art of Tera Kasi.

Sith assassins were minions of the Sith who specialized in stealth and infiltration in order to kill the enemies of the Sith Lords.

Bounty hunters would almost always kill for bounty, although some captured living people. Hunters such as Jango Fett, Zam Wesell, Boba Fett, Zuckuss, Bossk, 4-LOM, and Dengar were sometimes referred to as assassins.

An assassin finds his mark.

The Assassin above Geonosis.

The Assassin was a Lucrehulk-class battleship the Droid Confederacy's flagship. Unit A-10, its owner, was awarded it for his service to the Trade Federation during the Separatist Council. He named it the Assassin because he himself was a Battle Droid Assassin. During the Second Battle of Providence, the Assassin served as the platform for the main part of the conflict.

A-10 often attached his general's flagship, the Survivor, to the Assassin to form a more impressive and dangerous flagship. This configuration was used in the Second Battle of Providence.

Description

There are six total lessons over 23 total levels for the Assassin:

  • Bounty Hunter Expertise I -- Levels 46-49
    Often, assassins receive a contract against multiple targets. In these situations it is important to learn attacks that are effective against several opponents. Also, many assassins find it easier to fight while wearing armor.
  • Bounty Hunter Expertise II -- Levels 50-53
    In addition to deployed snares, assassins are frequently trained to use traps that not only hinder targets, but also cause severe damage.
  • Bounty Hunter Expertise III -- Levels 54-57
    Skilled assassins never abandon their combat training, knowing exactly how valuable a critical attack can be.
  • Bounty Hunter Expertise IV -- Levels 58-61
    Understanding the dangerous nature of their profession, many assassins opt to further their personal first aid training. This allows them to bind wounds and set broken bones when they are not inflicting and breaking them.
  • Bounty Hunter Expertise V -- Levels 62-65
    Through the course of his or her career, the assassin gains more experience handling and deploying new snare type traps. Many finds these useful against more difficult contract assignments.
  • Bounty Hunter Expertise VI -- Levels 66-69
    Before advancing to the next phase of their profession, assassins will complete even more essential combat training.

After passing the sixth lesson and 69th level, the Assassin may then work toward the Bounty Hunter rank.

Field Notes: Merciless and lethal, the Assassin stands for treachery and surprise attacks. Although there are a lot of thugs, bandits and murderers that roam the realm, the assassin is one of the few who have made a real profession out of killing. Usually organized in small groups, Assassins are trained in the arts of fighting dirty with backstabbing and stalking. Although they are formidable fighters, those hirable murderers prefer sneak attacks on unsuspecting victims which, they will attack with all kinds of dirty tricks to gain the advantage. Depending on their current mission, the Assassins work alone or in small hit squads. They are rarely encountered in greater numbers except by those that are unfortunate enough to stumble on their hideouts.
They give some rare loot which makes it worth the supplies used.

Strategy: Mages and Paladins, should wear a Dwarven Ring to run these without problems and Magic Shield will also be useful for Mages below Level 20. Some area runes, like Fireballs and Heavy Magic Missiles might be useful, for when they turn Invisible. Their invisibility only lasts a few seconds though, so you should not have a big problem fighting them without the area runes.
