Assassination problems?

I’ve been playing for hours now and many of my kills are melee based from all directions. BUT when i hit enemies from behind i just get a Melee kill. Never gotten a single assassination so im wondering… Am i doing something wrong or is it a bug?

And please correct me if im wrong but you do make an assassination just from bashing people from behind right?

You need to hold the melee button down to assassinate and you need to be directly behind the enemy. Also you cannot sprint and melee, you have to be standing still.

This, and I’ve only managed to pull off two actual assassinations, they’re pretty awesome if you have some of the different ones!

its much harder because you default to shoulder charge on a sprint.

I didn’t realise that, so that will help me for sure. Thanks for the tip.
