How all the best Assassins travel
As said above, the addition of ziplines to Assassin’s Creed: Revelations makes for much faster travel from rooftop to rooftop, and opens up a few exciting options for assassinating your targets and getting away scot free.
As you can see, the ziplines provide another angle of attack for the Assassins of Constantinople. By controlling your movement via the profile system (as in high and low profile), you can slow yourself down to make it past patrolling rooftop Templars undetected, then press the R1/R button to speed up and leap from the zipline into a graceful Zipline Assassination. Some of the ziplines dotted around areas of Constantinople also have Animus Data Fragments on them, so be sure to keep an eye out and use Eagle Sense to tag them for collection later if you don’t feel like grabbing them right away.
