With the rope dart, everything is contextual. If you are in open conflict, using the rope dart will simply snare a target and yank them toward you and they'll fall to the ground. If you're close enough to them when they've fallen, you can perform a ground kill on them. If you are anonymous (not in open conflict), you have a few more options. You will do ...

The first thing you need to do is to finish Myriam's Homestead Missions. Now you need to have 3 Land Convoys constructed AND have purchased the extra slots to carry more items in the convoys. Make sure all the Forts are Liberated and all the districts Liberated in New York. Now head to your ledger and purchase the following supplies from Myriam: Bear Pelts ...

If you're like me and completely suck at the tavern games... Hunting and selling pelts can be quite profitable, though a bit time-consuming. I like hunting wolves - they travel in packs and can be killed instantly with the hidden blade (unlike bears which take 3 hits) for a pelt in perfect condition. Beaver pelts are good as well. Beavers are slow and easy ...

It's a pain in the neck. You need to ram the ship in the bow. Chain shot helps to disable the ships. It took me a lot of tries, but it can be done that way.

According to SegmentNext and GameFAQs, collecting all the Feathers will unlock the Kanien’keha:ka outfit in your manor. As well, you earn bragging rights and progress towards 100% completion of the game.

I literally just did this! The clues are in a letter you find, and they are as follows: UNDER ALL CIRCUMSTANCE-OBEY AND BALANCE THE MORAL LAW THE GLOBE OVER BE IT CHRISTIANITY OF THE WEST BUDDHISM OF THE EAST The BALANCE is represented by the scales of justice. The globe is the GLOBE, obviously. The cross symbolizes CHRISTIANITY, and the steering wheel is ...

To be able to perform a double assassination, you have to be in High Profile. Low Profile kills will generally allow you to kill a single target. It's not automatic like it was in previous games. But it ultimately depends on the weapons used. But in the end, it all depends on if two enemies are highlighted and not just one. With the (Double) Hidden ...

You will receive a "Shard of Eden" that is a permanent passive bonus that gives you a chance to deflect bullets that are fired at you. Based on personal experience, it seems to deflect around about 1/3 of the bullets that would normally hit you. Interestingly enough, it even works when you're controlling Desmond (through unexplained video game magic). It'...

Yes. The path of an almanac page is predetermined, so you can learn where it will go, beat it there and then just wait. They tend to follow obvious free running paths anyway, so they're generally not too hard to catch unless they go over things like rooftops and the like where you don't have a path to follow.

Jeff's answer is correct but incomplete - to craft pouches you need to recruit a particular artisan to your homestead and have the appropriate materials to hand. You need to recruit the tailor (Ellen I think) - she's in one of the homestead missions in New York. You need to level her up by completing her missions to unlock the recipe for the pouch upgrades....

The only way I've noticed it works for me is when I have a enemy that you can usually counter with B, and then hit X to do an assassination kill. When the other guards are about to fire, and you are near one of the easy guards that I described above, look at the HUD on the bottom right, at certain times you will see the A button show different text for you ...

It's in the Logbook - this will be not on the regular menu interface but on the same screen as the map. Just scroll down. (On PS3 this is accessed with Select, I can't speak for other platforms)

No - as far as I can tell, the stories are almost entirely unrelated.

I don't believe that you can get access to all the content with a retail package on the consoles, and I would imagine that the extra parts will be released as DLC at a later date. However, on the PC the Digital Deluxe Edition will include all the 3 missions as well as the MP content. There is a table on Wikipedia which lists the editions and which things ...

Caravans under attack are always located in the Frontier. Head there and you'll see a shield icon on the map - that's your caravan: Get there, help fend off the Redcoats, and you're good.

You need to walk up the the Animus and press any button to re-enter it and become Conner again. The Animus is located across from your laptop, near Rebecca Crane.

About an hour after asking this, I found out. You need to do Lance the Woodworker's homestead mission where he goes to Boston for his tools. After that, the recipe will be unlocked and you can craft naval convoy. Then you can do naval trade. Hurrah.

Usually, in all the AC games, the back button (just above the 4-directional button) is used to open the map. For PC: Tab typically opens the map; for PS3, press Select.

You should upgrade your ship, especial with extra guns (to get greater damage), reinforced hall (to increase health of the ship) and fire bombs. If you'll not do those things then the mission will be much harder, as the Men-of-war greatly overpower your not upgraded ship, the mission is still doable without the upgrades, but is much harder. There are 2 ...

Well not really, you cannot buy the pouches anymore, you have to craft them this time. To craft, you need to find a store (or any place) that has an Accounting Book. Use the book and go to Crafting and look up a Special Items recipe. You'll find all the pouches and other upgrades there. You'll also need to find the recipe for the appropriate recipe which ...

I was wondering the same thing back when I realized I missed a lot of missions. You can still go back and complete the missions--it's not one of those "you miss it, you lose it" type of thing. However, you should be aware that some missions have prerequisites. Some of them require a certain season, whereas some require you to have certain people on your ...

From what I can recall, you can't. I haven't been able to find out if this has changed since I played. Here is a quote from Steven Masters (Lead Game Designer) I found on this Kotaku article: our stealth is primarily "social stealth", and we've been debating having a crouch button since pretty much day 1. It was always the vision that crouching in public ...

Go to the Homestead, buy as many bear pelts as you can. You can sell them on convoys and you''ll make a great profit. You should get more and more if you send multiple convoys at once.


6

You can build more convoys once you get access the the estate ledger. At the accounting book , you can craft another caravan. Cheaply. First, go to your stock pile. You should see a list with categories on the right, and one of them will be labeled "forest." Buy 1 oak lumber and 1 oak bark, and then go to the crafting menu. You will see something that says ...

Even using the high points, some parts of the map are still greyed out. However, you can run there to make them appear. In addition, the peddlars sell maps that show the hidden items (chests, feathers, etc.) even if they are in the grey areas, so you don't really need to go everywhere. Just buy the maps and chase them down.


6

By going to the Map menu, there, under the icon below the icon of the map (shaped as an open book) you'll find all your "side quest", the clubs challenges, the explorers's missions, club quests, missions to acquire items for citizens and more.

Fort captains aren't all that special. They're just another archetype in the game's different enemies. It's not a new one either, they are all* the Jager archetype and are vulnerable to disarms. But you cannot initiate the attack, they must attack you and you must do a counter disarm. You can disarm them by pressing Off Hand -> Foot as they attack you (...

There are plenty of things you might not get if you played it without having an idea of the prequels. However, I wouldn't necessarily recommend playing them to get the story. The first one is incredibly repetitive and involves many menial tasks whilst the second one struggles in aspects of the story line. Strictly speaking, there won't necessarily be ...
