The Assassin Tomahawk

The Assassin Tomahawk was a tomahawk most notably used by the Kanien'kehá:ka Assassin Ratonhnhaké:ton, otherwise known as Connor, during the 18th century.

It originally belonged to John de la Tour, the first Colonial Assassin in the New World, before he gifted it to Achilles Davenport in 1745 at his last stand during the Siege of Louisbourg to buy Achilles and Abigail time to escape.[1] Achilles later gave it to Connor after he became an Assassin many years later.[2] The Louisianan Assassin Aveline de Grandpré later obtained an Assassin Tomahawk after meeting Connor in 1777 to eliminate the Louisianan Templar George Davidson, a member of Lord Dunmore's Ethiopian Regiment.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Various Abenaki, Lenape, and Shawnee warriors in the memories "The Braddock Expedition" and "Broken Trust" are seen wielding Assassin Tomahawks, despite the peoples having no known ties to the Brotherhood.

If Connor equips another weapon that replaces the Assassin Tomahawk, he still wields it in certain cutscenes such as in "Public Execution" and "Lee's Last Stand". Furthermore, if Connor equips another weapon that replaces the Assassin Tomahawk, it will not appear in the armory in the Davenport Manor's basement. Instead, he would need to retrieve it at a general store for no cost.

In Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, the weapon is called Connor's Tomahawk and has the same stats as the Chimbuya Axe. It can be obtained by connecting Liberation to Assassin's Creed III, or by purchasing it for 20 uPlay points on Liberation HD.

The tomahawk Ratonhnhaké:ton uses in The Tyranny of King Washington is visually identical to the Assassin Tomahawk, albeit with a traditionally shaped blade and hammer rather than a blade and spike in the shape of the Assassin insignia. Opening the weapon wheel reveals that the tomahawk is still named the Assassin Tomahawk and has the same stats as the base-game weapon.

The weapon is classified as a hammer in Assassin's Creed: Rebellion, as it uses the hammer animations rather than those of an axe. The game's description of the weapon incorrectly says it was given to Connor from the first Colonial Assassin, even though Assassin's Creed III shows it was given by Achilles Davenport who instead followed fellow Assassin John de la Tour into the Americas.
