Assassin’s Creed: Revelations – Flamethrowers: Did they really exist back then?


"Driving around in a Renaissance tank or firing a chaingun from a wagon in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood may not be very likely (though these weapons of war were indeed based on Leonardo Da Vinci sketches), but they were surprisingly fun.

So it would be easy for gamers to assume that such liberal license was taken with the newest oddly modern gadget Ezio gets to use in the upcoming game Assassin’s Creed: Revelations: the flamethrower."

The story is too old to be commented.

Wow, I never knew that they had hand-held flamethrowers back then in Constantinople...

It would be so cool if Ezio gets to use them! Though I think a few innocent bystanders might cop it!

Imagine it being used in multi though! Carnage!

I'm glad that they are using as historically correct a platform as possible for the series.

It is impossible to do it perfectly, but it really does make the whole 'feel' special.

well seeing as the ancients had batteries, built the pyramids, built complicated underground cities with air vents going up for miles, had air plane concepts, cut off entire mountains tops perfectly, and so much more hundreds and hundreds, maybe even thousands of years before the events of assassins creed. sure its possible

yeah I was surprised to hear it too when I learned it in history class a while back, they used some other funny stuff too like mirrors that reflect the sun on ships to burn them

Leonardo Da Vinci can do what he wants

If i remember correctly, there was a device like that used in Ridley Scott's film Robin Hood. considering that was a realistic era, and set during the time of the crusades (Altair's era), I wouldnt see why it shouldnt exist in 1500 Istanbul
