Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Rift Locations and Puzzle Solutions

Scattered around the Roman Landscape are 10 special collectibles: the rifts. Visible only by triggering Eagle Vision, they appear in a structure database as an icon that looks like an eye. Upon finding them and climbing up to them Ezio can enter the Rift, where he will be asked to solve a puzzle. After finding all the Rifts and solving all the puzzles, he will be presented with a revelation about the Assassin’s Creed universe.

On the code wheel puzzles, there’s no sense in telling us what the passcode is idiots, it gives us that, we need to know what the fill in the blank symbols are…duh, if u play the game you would know that retards

Cluster 10 amplitude puzzle only needs 2 – the first on the top row and the last on the bottom row. I did it twice to check.

On cluster 4 after spinning ring 2 one click right and ring four 1 click right, the next should say spin ring 2 four clicks left, not one click right.. again… Just wanted to clear that up.

Disreguard the comment I left before this one… I am really confused with the cluster four puzzle ring puzzle.. I wanted to tell you that the solution you have is wrong.. it should say this.

Ring 3 four clicks to the right
Ring 1 one click to the right
Ring 4 one click to the right
Ring 2 four clicks to the left

Just wanted to give you a heads up!
