Assassin’s Creed Fan Makes Hidden Blade Out of Popsicle Sticks
Assassin’s Creed is one of many series published and owned by Ubisoft. Assassin’s Creed is a well-known franchise in the gaming world, with the release of the first installment nearly 14 years ago. However, there is one weapon that has been used throughout the series and it contributes to the memorability associated with Assassin’s Creed.
The history of the hidden blade is a long one in the Assassin’s Creed timeline. This weapon first appeared in the original Assassin’s Creed. It has been a staple of the series, appearing in nearly every game in the franchise. One fan has managed to recreate the hidden knife using an unusual form factor.
Reddit user tortilla_de_patata shared video of a homemade hidden knife made from popsicle sticks. This blade functions in the same manner as the blades of Assassin’s Creed, but without the embellishments often found on Assassin guantlets. The homemade blade’s minimalist design is very similar to the hidden blade Desmond Miles used during gameplay segments of Assassin’s Creed.
It is amazing to see how much creativity it takes to create something like this. It’s amazing that a Reddit user could make a functional hidden knife. Many physical hidden blade replicas require that the user hits a button at the bottom of their gauntlet. The blade will slide in and out of your gauntlet like in the game. It is quite impressive to be able to make a hidden blade that retracts and extends from your own hand.
Over the years, the hidden blade has seen many design changes. The original hidden blade required that the user remove their ring finger to use the device. The device was modified by Leonardo Da Vinci in Assassin’s Creed 2 so that Assassins could use it without needing to remove a finger.
It will be interesting for Ubisoft to decide where Assassin’s Creed goes in the future. The return of the hidden blade in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla could indicate that future games will be more similar to earlier entries in this series. It will be difficult to predict what the next installment of Assassin’s Creed will look like, given the number of structural changes made to the series with each new installment.
