    • Rope Darts; — How To Unlock: Becomes available near the end of the Singleplayer game. / Gameplay Tip: Rope Darts are very useful when you deal with a bunch of enemies in close combat, especially with those tough ones that usually take you a while to kill. Shoot the rope darts at him and he will fall, then easy kill! — Guns sometimes cannot kill an enemy in one shot, but after using rope darts to shoot him you basically grab him close and use your close weapon to finish him for an easy kill. No cool down time either, whereas handguns take you a while for reloading.
    • Smoke Bombs; — How To Unlock: Go to any general store and buy them, or get it at random by looting enemy bodies or treasure chests. / Gameplay Tip: If you’re even facing multiple difficult enemies at once, throw a smoke bomb and quickly perform multiple instant assassinations with your hidden blade. It’s one of my favorite moves in the game to even the odds into my favor!

    PS: Please comment if you know where to find other weapons.
