In Assassin’s Creed 3, you can perform an air assassination, which is essentially a more dramatic assassination while dropping from a distance. Be warned however that this is a high profile assassination, and will alert any nearby enemies, so use with caution.
To perform an air assassination, you just need to have your enemy in your sites as you drop from a height and press the attack button before you land (X on PS3, A on Xbox 360).
This can sometimes depend on what you drop from though. If you drop from a roof top for example, you can drop almost directly down for an air assassination, but dropping from a tree limb requires your enemy to be out just a little bit. Also, if you’re not too high up, you can perform the assassination without even dropping down first.
Keep an eye on your hidden blades when trying to perform any kind of assassination, as they’ll light up white when the target can be assassinated.
