One of the most popular games of the year is the new Assassin's Creed II. The following game cheats for Assassin's Creed II will help you get the most out of your gaming time and unlock many hidden abilities, tools and even an Easter egg or two.

In the latest edition to the Assassin's Creed saga, you follow Desmond through the Renaissance streets of Venice. The city is completely explorable, and the gameplay is more challenging this time away. Throughout your missions you'll be scouring the city for hidden glyphs that help you unravel the puzzles along the way.

The following game cheats apply to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.


  • Loot the dead bodies you come across for medicines and throwing knives that you can add to your inventory

  • If you use an axe or spear to kill an enemy, you'll find that the weapon often gets stuck in the opponent. To free the weapon, pick up the body and drop it. The weapon will pop out.

Easter eggs

  • Super Mario Brothers reference: The character Mario says “Itsa me, Mario!” at the beginning of the third sequence. It is speculated that this is either a reference to Super Mario or to Mario Cuomo, former governor of New York.

  • From the Deep: In a large flooded room in the Assassin's Tomb at Santa Maria Delle Visitazaione. Pull the lever and look into the water. When you see the shadow, pull the lever again and a tentacle will pop out from the deep water and make a grab for Ezio.

Unlock abilities

  • Climb Leap Ability: If you complete Rosa's "Monkey See, Monkey Do" mission in Sequence 7, you can earn the ability to leap while climbing. This ability allows you to jump further from handhold to handhold than you would normally be able to.

  • Disarm Combat Technique: If you complete Mario's "Evasive Maneuvers" mission in Sequence 5, you can unlock the disarm ability. This ability allows you to counter incoming heavy weapons attacks.

  • Condottiero War Hammer: When you collect 50 of the hidden feathers, you can go to the blacksmith's shop in Villa Monteriggioni and collect the Condottiero War Hammer.

  • Auditore Cape: When you collect 100 hidden feathers, you can go and talk to Mario at Villa Monteriggioni and he'll give you the Auditore Cape.

Unlock equipment

The following cheat works when you attach a PSP running Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines to your PS3 console. If you have defeated the following characters in Assassin's Creed Bloodlines, you can use that experience to unlock additional weapons in Assassin's Creed: II.

  • Defeat Armand Bouchart in Assassin's Creed Bloodlines to unlock Bouchart's Blade

  • Defeat the Dark Oracle in Assassin's Creed Bloodlines to unlock Dark Oracle's Bone Dagger

  • Defeat Fredrick the Red in Assassin's Creed Bloodlines to unlock Fredrick's Hammer

  • Defeat the Bull in Assassin's Creed Bloodlines to unlock Mace of the Bull

  • Defeat Maria Thorpe in Assassin's Creed Bloodlines to unlock Maria Thorpe's Longsword

  • Defeat the Twins in Assassin's Creed Bloodlines to unlock Twins' Blade

To unlock your weapons, connect your PSP and PS3 together using the USB cable. Turn on both games and select "Connectivity" in Assassin's Creed II's options menu. Choose "Connect to PS3" from Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines. After a moment, the weapons will appear in your inventory.
