Assassin: The Raven Returns....FAQ


Assassin Boss Fight: The Raven
He's baaaaack! Ice players on the fight list to pick up The Raven’s trail. He’s very hard to track down, but when you get close you'll discover special Ammo with which to fight him. The more you ice other players in fights, the greater your chances of catching a glimpse of him in the form of this banner in your fight list:
Ice To Find The Assassin
Keep icing opponents and you may actually get the opportunity to fight this maniac, which is presented in the form of this banner in your fight list:
An Opportunity To Fight The Raven
Once you encounter the Assassin, you will have 8 hours to clip this raven's wings using the Knife Slash, Bloody Knuckles, & Crack Of The Bat boss fight Ammos plus the new Sniper Shot! These Ammos drop from jobs, fights, robbing, & ices, respectively. Unlike the Shotgun Blast that the Sniper Shot replaces in Assassin Boss Fights*, the Sniper Shot is NOT giftable. The only way to get those is from icing, which works out because you won't even get a chance to cook The Raven's goose unless you lure him to you by icing other players. If you fail to defeat The Raven within 8 hours after you've started the fight, he will retreat to heal for 3 days, after which you will be able to pick up his trail once again.
*Note: The new Sniper Shot is an Ammo used exclusively in Assassin Boss Fights. The Shotgun Blast will no longer be available for use in Assassin Boss Fights, but any previously collected Shotgun Blasts will remain in your inventory and will be accessible in future non-Assassin Boss Fights.
