A golden bec de corbin was a gilded though inferior variant of the bec de corbin utilized by the Parisian Brotherhood of Assassins.

DescriptionEdit

As a bec de corbin, the golden bec de corbin was a combination of a hammerhead, hooked "beak", and spike mounted atop a long pole. Typical becs des corbins are functionally war picks, not war hammers, as the chief form of attack was designed to be dealt through the beak, which could shred through enemy armor.[1]

Even so, the golden bec de corbin was based on the type employed by the French Assassins which featured a leaf-shaped spike so broad and prominent that the weapon was in some respects more of a spear.[1]

As its name describes, it was merely a bec de corbin with its blade ornately decorated with gold. Complementing this, the upper section of the pole was painted with a rich red. Nevertheless, its elegance came at the price of practicality, as the weapon was overall weaker and afforded less protection than the basic bec de corbin.[1]

HistoryEdit

The golden bec de corbin, alongside regular becs des corbins, were part of the arsenal of the Parisian Brotherhood of Assassins during the French Revolution.[1]

TriviaEdit

  • The golden bec de corbin features in Assassin's Creed: Unity where it can only be unlocked as a Uplay reward.
  • Although a more exquisite and rarer variant of the normal bec de corbin, the golden bec de corbin has interior stats, with lower values in Damage and Parry.
  • Like the bec de corbin, the golden bec de corbin in the game resembles a spear more than the war pick becs des corbins are supposed to be.
