The riot that was started by Ezio Auditore destroyed the Arsenal Gates, allowing Ezio to infiltrate the Arsenal and find out why Manuel Palaiologos was visiting, and what he and Tarik Barleti were planning.
Ezio oversaw Manuel examining the weapons.
- Manuel: Twenty years in this city, living like a cipher... and finally, everything is falling into place.
- Shahkulu: When the Palaiologos line is restored, Manuel, do not forget who helped you bring it back.
- Manuel: Of course not, my friend! I would not dream of betraying a man of your influence. But you must be patient. Nova Roma wasn't built in a day.
I am satisfied. Take me to my ship.
If a single one is damaged, the money stays with me.
Ezio investigated the weapons when Manuel and Shahkulu had left the room.
- Ezio: Merda! (shit!)
Two Janissaries entered the room, forcing Ezio to flee.
Ezio discovered the weapons Tarik sold to Manuel, but was detected before he could do anything else. He managed to escape the Arsenal.
