Assassin's Creed 3 trailer shows Connor's revolutionary arsenal

Omri Petitte at

Whenever Templar- and teacup-shattering woodsman Connor presents his business card, it's probably embossed with the honorary title of "walking armory." The killer's repertoire of deadly takedowns is more fluid than that of his predecessors, but that's mostly because whatever object gripped in Connor's rough hands -- an axe, a pair of tomahawks, rope darts, muskets, a wheel of cheese -- turns into someone's abrupt demise. Listen to a British commander warn his troops of the death stalking America's snowy forests in the trailer above, sensibly followed by the worst pep talk ever by way of threatening even more death should they fail their mission.
