    Note: Before you can use the ability to sweep with a long weapon, you must first train at the Combat Trainer in Monteriggioni. Press cn_T to speak to the trainer and select - Special Moves - Long Weapons

    The sweep ability costs 10000 Florins to learn so bear that in mind when you return to the Villa to learn it.

    To sweep an enemy with a long weapon you need to target them with cn_L1 then press and hold cn_S to charge up the sweep, Ezio will spin the weapon around him until its behind him, you can then release cn_S to sweep. If need be you can release early.

    Before you can even attempt this you will need to get a long weapon off one of the Seeker guards (Big guys with spears) You can either kill them and pick up their weapon off the floor with cn_O or disarm them (Unarmed hold cn_R1 and press cn_S as they attack)

    This can be quite hard to get enough enemies hit with your sweep once you have your spear so you'll want to get a big group of guards on you before trying, for example get one group on you and block (cn_R1) and move around to gather more. Any populated city will work though I found Venice to be good for this.

    A lot of people suggest throwing down a smoke bomb but I had difficulty finding the spear again as you drop it throw the bomb, what I did was sweep once to get some on the floor and then charge up the sweep again and keep going until id got 5 at once.
