How to “disarm and kill agile guards with their own weapon”?

One of the Abstergo challenges in the fighter category says:

disarm and kill 3 agile guards with their own weapon

I’ve been disarming them left and right, but they always drop their weapon and I somehow can’t pick them up. What am I doing wrong?


The agile guards use throwing knives as weapon, of which you can only carry 1 at a time. If you drop their weapon to the ground, it’s most likely you already carry a throwing knife. If that’s the case, just kill the guard with the knife you already have.

The best way to finish the challenge is by doing the following:

  • Equip your fists (unarmed) and the throwing knife (it doesn’t matter if you’ve got one or not)
  • Initiate combat with an agile guard (they are the ones that don’t wear hats)
  • Wait for them to attack, then disarm them by pressing counter followed by break defense.
  • Press shoot to throw your knife, killing the guard in the process.
  • Rinse and repeat.
