Current Boxart
Release Date: November 11, 2014
Developer: Ubisoft Quebec
Publisher: Ubisoft
Series: Assassin's Creed
Platforms: PS4
XBox One
Genre: Action-adventure

Assassin's Creed Unity is the eighth part of the Assassin's Creed series. Like its predecessors, it belongs to the action-adventure genre. The game is set in 18th-century Paris at the time of the French Revolution and follows the main character, Arno Victor Dorian. The latter has French and Austrian ancestors. In his youth he suffered a heavy loss: both his biological father and stepfather died under mysterious circumstances. Arno was falsely framed for the murder of his stepfather, which is why he was locked up in the Bastille, from which he escaped together with an assassin during the storming of the Bastille. Later it turns out that his stepfather was a high-ranking Templar, and so was his daughter Élise, with whom Arno had fallen in love. After escaping from the Bastille, he joins the Assassins to uncover the true forces behind the French Revolution.

Throughout the game, as in the other Assassin's Creed parts, the player will meet some historical characters such as Maximilien de Robespierre, the Marquis de Sade, as well as Napoléon Bonaparte, and many others. In addition to the familiar sneak passages, for which the cover system has once again been reworked so that Arno can now move freely while sneaking, the action-packed battles also return in a revised form. In addition to a sword and a pistol, Arno can also use the new Phantom Blade, which can shoot berserkers and normal blades, a combination of the classic hidden blade and a small crossbow.

The following weapons appear in the video game Assassin's Creed Unity:

Flintlock Pistols

Various types of flintlock pistols are available.

Denix Kentucky Flintlock Pistol

The Denix-produced replica of the Kentucky Flintlock pistol appears simply as the "Pistol". Is used by various characters and as a ranged weapon of most enemies. Is also incorrectly used by the Gendarmerie in the "Belle Epoque: Data Harvest" side mission instead of the more correct MAS 1873 revolver.

Officer's Pistol

Officer's Pistol is a double-barrel flintlock Pistol.

Irish Twin Flintlock, among the earliest multi-barrelled handguns.

American Flintlock

American Flintlock is a four-barrel turnover flintlock Pistol. Despite its name, the American Flintlock is actually based on a three-barrel turnover pistol made in Augsburg allegedly in 1775, more specifically the Denix-produced four-barrel replica which itself appears to be a hybrid consisting of the grip of the 1775 Augsburg pistol and the four barrels of a 1750 made Augsburg pistol shown in the old gun's magazine Deutsches Waffen-Journal. This would appear to contradict the lore in Assassin's Creed canon that the firearm is of American origin.

Kolser S.A. made replica of a three barrel turnover flintlock pistol, made in Augsburg in 1775 (hand-rotated).

Arno's Pistol

Arno's Pistol is a six-barrel flintlock Pistol. However, the distinctive angled body is reminiscent of 16th-century wheellock pistols.

Fancy Pistol

Fancy Pistol actually based on a 1706 Queen Anne Dragoon Pistol.


Pepper Shot

Pepper Shot is a six-barrel flintlock Pistol. It is mostly based on English-style percussion pepperbox revolving pistols of the 1830/40s such as the ones made by Cogswell, Smith of London, or Piper of Cambridge. However, the fact that the pistol is depicted with both a flintlock mechanism and percussion caps shows that the modeler wasn't aware of the working principles of percussion weapons.


Three-Shot Duck Foot

Three-Shot Duck Foot actually a three-barrel Nock Flintlock Pistol.

Nock Flintlock Pistol with a Duck's Foot multiple barrel attachments to fire simultaneous shots in a wide arc. The Duck's Foot attachment, named for its visual similarity to the toes and webbing of a duck's foot, was initially intended as an anti-mutiny weapon aboard wooden sailing ships, where a lone ship Captain might find himself up against numerous mutineers.

Gold-Plated Pistol

A gold-Plated Pistol is a nine-barrel flintlock Pistol.


Five-Shot Duck Foot

Five-Shot Duck Foot actually a five-barrel Nock Flintlock Pistol.

Nock Flintlock Pistol with a Duck's Foot multiple barrel attachments to fire simultaneous shots in a wide arc. The Duck's Foot attachment, named for its visual similarity to the toes and webbing of a duck's foot, was initially intended as an anti-mutiny weapon aboard wooden sailing ships, where a lone ship Captain might find himself up against numerous mutineers.

Pitcairn-Putnam's Pistol

Pitcairn-Putnam's Pistol actually a Scottish all-steel Christie & Murdoch Flintlock.

Scottish all-steel Christie & Murdoch Flintlock - .52 caliber

Solid Long Gun

Solid Long Gun actually based on ivory-stocked Dutch flintlock pistols of the 17th century, particularly the ones crafted by Dutch gunmaker Leonardus Graeff. What appears to be the same model, but is depicted being made of maple instead of ivory is featured in the "Underground Armory Pack" as the "French Cavalry Pistol".


Quick To Reload Over Under Pistol

A double barrel flintlock boxlock pistol with an underslung folding bayonet is featured as the "Quick To Reload Over Under Pistol".

Parade Pistol

The Parade Pistol featured in the "Secrets of the Revolution" pack is based on the pair of ornate flintlock pistols made by Nicolas Noel Boutet for Joachim Murat. These pistols were made in Versailles in 1805-1810 therefore the design is anachronistic for the French Revolution setting of Unity.

Harper's Ferry Flintlock

The same Harper's Ferry Flintlock from Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed IV is seen being used by Élise de la Serre in cutscenes and gameplay, besides other characters. Its appearance in the French Revolution is anachronistic as the first model was not made until 1805.

Muskets & Rifles

Various types of muskets and rifles are available.

Brown Bess Musket

The "Flint Musket", "Rifle" and, "National Guard Musket" are actually the Brown Bess Flintlock Musket. While the "Rifle" and "National Guard Musket" are only purchasable by the player, the "Flint Musket" is used by Patriots sharpshooters, and also incorrectly used by Wehrmacht Feldgendarmerie (military police) soldiers in the "Occupied Paris: Covert" side mission instead of a more appropriate Kar98k.

Charleville Musket

The "Sharpshooter Flintlock" appears to be based on a Charleville Musket but it is depicted with a weird elongated flintlock plate and only one barrel hoop.

Charleville Mousquet Modèle 1777 - .69 caliber

Flintlock Axe

The Guillotine Guns are based on 17th-18th century flintlock axes, however, the trigger guard is inaccurately stylized as the triggers of matchlock weapons. Full sized prop was later also made for the movie adaptation.

The Brown Bess/Enfield Pattern 1853/Kentucky Flintlock Rifle hybrid musket from Assassin's Creed III appears as a non-playable weapon during cutscenes.

The "Silver-Plated Musket" is actually a Martini-Henry rifle, which was first produced in 1871, being anachronistic by circa eight decades.

Maple Hunting Rifle

The Maple Hunting Rifle is an ornate sporting flintlock gun with maple wood stock.

2 cm KwK 30

During the "Occupied Paris" missions, several German Panzer II light tanks can be seen, complete with their mounted KwK 30 autocannons.

After getting out the sewer, Arno takes a look at the first Panzer with the mounted KwK 30. Note that it is massively oversized; a Panzer II is roughly six and a half feet (~2 meters) tall, while the tank in front of Arno looks to be about nine or ten, putting it on par with the Tiger I.
A closer view of the Kampfwagenkanone of another tank; with the entire tank being massively upscaled, the cannon now looks closer to 40mm or so.

Fuse Grenade

The in-game smoke bombs appear to be based on fuse grenades.

Gribeauval Cannon

What appears to be 12-pounder Gribeauval cannons appear as a prop in various locations.

MG 34

Arno uses two MG 34s in the time anomaly to shoot down three German Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighters. The in-game model is equipped with a 50-round drum, 5mm shield, and anti-aircraft sight.
