Ezio and Yusuf by a bomb-crafting station

Bomb-crafting station was a location used to craft bombs, both inside Constantinople and other locations. These stations were available to the Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze during his travels, and were usually marked with the insignia of the Ottoman Brotherhood of Assassins.


The crafting stations were small, boxlike, and somewhat inconspicuous, set up by the Assassins to enable the crafting and modifying of bombs. There were three inventory pouches inside a station, each holding bombs of according to their use, whether lethal, tactical, or diversionary. Up to five bombs could be manufactured with different types, amounts, and combinations of ingredients, for a maximum total of 15 bombs on hand at any given time.[1]
