Been playing a lot of Assassin's Creed 3 multiplayer? Fancy some tips for making a killing online? Read on...
Running around on rooftops lights you up like a Christmas tree on your opponents' screens. Only the worst assassins resort to sprinting around, leaping from rooftop to rooftop and earning kills worth a pittance.Sure, a rooftop escape can be a boon when you're actively being chased, but otherwise, stick to the ground and keep low-key. Simple, but very effective.
9: One shot, one kill
It's always worth carrying a pistol in your ranged weapon slot. Sure, a poison dart can net you a big glut of points, but there's nothing more satisfying than knocking an escaping assassin off a rooftop with a well-placed shot, saving you the trouble of chasing them.
8: Chasebreaker cheese
NPCs never walk through the glowing doors of chasebreakers. If you see a character strolling slowly down the corridor between the two ends of a chasebreaker, it has to be a player-controlled character. Use this to your advantage to escape your pursuer or take out your target with certainty.

Ignore the whispers which signal the approach of an assassin hunting you at your peril – as soon as you hear them, duck into a group and hide. Look for odd movements, or characters abruptly standing still – if you can get the drop on your pursuer a healthy stun bonus can be yours. Also, learn to hear the noise signifying someone aiming at you, be it pistol or poison dart. Obviously, it might be worth running once you do…
