@theamazingbatman: He's a hunter. Stop & stalk deer hunting requires some major talent.
Ezio lives 300 years before Connor the make of their weapons is completely different bra. The steel is better. As for Tomahawk > Sword one requires less energy to swing around meaning the person with the lighter weapon can go on to kill more people. Now Connors hidden blades eject unlike Ezios allowing for more options that Ezio simply doesn't have. As for Ezios wrist gun... well it sucks the aim time made it unless in combat.
As for round 3 Connor is a better soldier (schooled in firearms, naval warfare) who's weapons conserve stamina meaning he can kill more people.
Connor > Edward > Ezio > Altair. As time goes on the Assassins get better & more efficient at killing. Tech & skills evolve.
The nail has been hit. This guy gets it!
In a straight up fight, Connor wins all day. If the question were "whose the overall better assassin," then the answer would be Ezio easy, but in a straight up fight, pound for pound, Connor is just younger, stronger, faster, and has better tech.
