How do you stun in Assassins Creed Brotherhood Multiplayer? Read my guide below for some tips on how to stun, and stop dying to every pursuer.

So last night I was playing Assassins Creed Brotherhood multiplayer for the first time with the rest of the world, and I hear about this thing called stun. How the hell do I stun? I slam on the B button (Xbox 360) all day when I see someone I KNOW is coming to kill me approaching, but they just eviscerate my face!  Time after time, my face is shredded.

Well, it turns out you can’t just counter every pursuer that is following you, otherwise the game would turn into “kill your pursuer” and not “chase your victim”. The mechanic is there to counter being killed only. The plus side is that when you pull one off, you get 200 points, so it’s not bad. Also you make your pursuer rage a little inside.

Anyways, the object is to SURPRISE your pursuer, in every sense of the word. There is no game mechanic for “surprise,” you create that element with your game play. Get it? Okay here is an example of surprising your pursuer, so you may live to assassinate another noob.
