Pivots give you animus hacks - think of them as cheats.
How it Works:
As stated earlier, Pivots only become available after finishing the game once or in the epilogue after you complete
You can only find Pivots while you are online; there is a reason for
that. However, the initial tutorial, which aids you in finding three
basic pivots, can be carried out offline. The rest of the pivots must
be unlocked online.
This is because the rest of the pivots are actually placed by other
online players who are also busy in the same purpose. To find these
pivots, you would need to triangulate the position of these
player-placed pivots with the ones you have already found.
This may sound confusing, but the idea develops rapidly after trying
out the tutorial. Basically, placing two pivots will create a sort of
border or hemisphere on the map. The green portion of the cut map will
be the place where a pivot may be present.
To narrow it down, you must have another pivot placed to create a
triangular green zone, which should have a pivot at the average center
of that triangle. The pivot is designated with a square icon on your
You can place found pivots on the map for triangulated other pivots
through your map screen. However, you can only place pivots at the
position where Connor is standing.
This means that in order to create a triangle, you would actually have
to travel to the desired edges of the triangle that you want to create
to place each pivot there. However, this does not apply to the
removing of pivots. Placed pivots can be removed simply by hovering
the cursor of them.
Pivots aren’t present all the time though – there is a spawn time
limit for every pivot. Pivots will spawn on the map after every 15
Since pivots you find are placed by other players online, you are
actually involved in the same procedure. This means that other players
can find the pivots you place for searching other pivots. When a
player finds your pivot, its position will change on the mini-map.
