That may be true, but Ezio joined because he wanted to get revenge on the people that hanged his father, and brothers. Connor joined yes for revenge, but revenge on the Templar's for destroying his village. So In my next round I will explain armament. and weapons.
even if that is true they joined for the same reason and that they wanted revenge but ezio want to help his family even after he got revenge he still was an assassin and never left but connor asked for help and was just joining for revenge not for anything else.
Connor has for weapons, hidden blades ( well which assassin does not have them) swords, Tomahawk, pistols, bow and arrows. knifes, rope darts
His powers is well in the regular version the eagle vision. But in the dlc version. He has animal powers. like the Wolf Cloak which makes him invisible, eagle flight where whenever he jumps he can glide like an eagle, and then bear might, where he can use the power of the bear to kill many enemies at a time.
He is not ranked as the 5th most bada$$ video game character by Ultimate Gamer
if connor was the best then he wouldn't need all those items to work with he word have just a few items like ezio because ezio can use little items and still be able to kill a lot more people then connor by far. When you see that connor is an indian who can hunt and survive in the wild ezio lives in the cites and is able to help. Also ezio uses a dang freaken cannon in a game and connor runs around looking for animals when ezio can secretly kill enemys with out even trying.
