Complete the indicated task to unlock the corresponding costume. Classic Assassin & Uplay Outfits.

CostumeHow to unlock

If desired, get harpoon upgrades, harpoon storage, strength, and extra armor to make this process easier. Sail to a Killer Whale hunting location (for example, coordinates 537, 340 on the world map). After a deck hand announces the presence of a whale, Kenway will be sent with a harpoon to hunt it. Harpoon the whale and follow it, being careful when it dives. It will eventually surface again on the horizon and run at your boat. Harpoon it again to avoid taking damage. Repeat the process until the whale's health is taken down to unlock the trophy.

Go to a General Store, then select the "Hunting Goods" tab. Purchase the Red Howler Monkey Skin for 5,000 R and White Jaguar Pelt for 6,000 R. Select the "Crafting" tab at the main menu, then choose the "Hunting Outfit" option.

If you are going up against big ships (like frigates), position your ship near your target and then swim to the ship to take the crew out in close quarters combat. When you've done that, swim back to the Jackdaw and then hit each ship with one broadside. You immediately win the boarding sequence that follows, without having to go into heavy fighting.

Complete the "Mister Walpole, I presume?" mission during Sequence 2 Memory 3. Pause game play while not in a mission, select "Progress Tracker", and choose "Sequence 2, Memory 3". Replay the mission and continue until you are given the optional objective to pickpocket three Templars. Pickpocket them to get at least 750 Reales. Immediately pause game play, select "Reload", and reload the game from the last checkpoint. You can now pickpocket the Templars again. Repeat the process until you collect at least 100,000 Reales.

Note: This trick requires a decent amount of hull armor and 10 or more mortar rounds for the Jackdaw ship. Travel to the legendary ship battle in the northeast corner of the map, with the two legendary ships that attack you. You will not be able to defeat both ships without your ship fully upgraded, but you will be able to take down one if you follow these instructions. When the battle starts, fire two mortar rounds at the ship you are focusing on while turning around, then release your fire barrels. When they get close, use your heavy shot. Do not get between the two opposing ships or you will be defeated quickly. Once they pass, keep firing mortars at the one ship while they are turning around. Repeat the previous steps until you destroy the ship you are focused on. Pick up the loot from that destroyed legendary ship as quickly as possible, because the other ship will ram and sink you quickly. You will get 10,000 Reales for your trouble and be able to keep it after you die. Repeat the process as many times as desired.

This trick requires the cannon and/or shot upgrades; or upgrades to your chain shot and ram abilities. Also, Brothers-in-Arms must not have been sunk yet. Start a battle with the group of ships, sinking one of them and ignoring the others. Collect your loot then intentionally fail. After respawning, the other ship will also be back with its loot. You will still have your previous reward. Repeat the process as many times as desired, earning 10,000 Reales each time.

Use the following trick to make 10,000R in about twenty five minutes by Hunting Crocodiles. While on the Island of Nassau (Sequence 02), you will have your first opportunity to hunt Crocodiles. You can find this easily on the map in the water/lagoon/marsh area, notated with a Crocodile symbol. It is easiest to find this after exposing a few lookout points. The crocodile lagoon is located southwest of the ship dock. Just to the right (east) on the map from the water the crocodiles lurk, you will find a red enemy zone with a lookout/regeneration point where you can Fast Travel to and regenerate the crocodiles you killed. This allows you to run back and do it again. Do this twenty five times to earn an easy 10,000R. To reach the area where it is easy to snipe the two crocodiles safely from the trees, leap out from the lookout point described above, directly across towards the crocodile area, and use the trees to go over the water and onto the island area. Stay on the trees, jumping across them and stay to the left until you reach the top of a tree on the edge of the water. From here, look down and snipe the two crocs, then jump down to skin them and quickly Fast Travel back to the lookout. Each run from the lookout point to the two easy to catch crocodiles takes less than a minute before Fast Traveling back to the lookout point, regenerating the two crocodiles you killed to hunt and skin again. Do this twenty four more times to get fifty Crocodile Leathers to sell for 10,000 total.

Stand in the location the shanty starts at when it flies away from you. It will fly away and a short time later it will appear up in the location you are at. You can pick it up without having to chase after it.

Swim inside the Antocha shipwreck at coordinates 630,660. While looking out one of the windows you will be able to see a giant squid take down a whale.

After you unlock Florida by synchronizing with the viewpoint, fast travel there and you should easily spot 2 ships, an English and a Spanish vessel. They have a random amount of loot on board. Climb slowly on board the Spanish one and loot as desired until you are forced to jump overboard. You have around 45 seconds to do so. Then head to the other ship, where you should have around a minute. Once the two ships have both sunk, open your map and fast travel to the viewpoint again. Both ships should reappear, allowing to loot them all over again. You can repeat the process as often as you like. It's a great way to find the resources to upgrade your Jackdaw.

In Sequence 2: Memory 3, you'll encounter an optional objective requiring you to pickpocket all Templars. There are three of them in the area, which follows shortly after a checkpoint. You can pick their pockets, then chose the option to "Reload Last Checkpoint." When you do, you'll find that the money you pocketed remains in your possession. You can repeat the process as often as you like before continuing the mission, and you can also come back to the mission later in the game if you wish. It's possible to earn 35,000R after around 7 minutes of effort. This exploit may soon be patched, so you'll want to play using the game's initial version if that proves to be the case.

If you go to the map near the entrance to the modern-day Abstergo offices, you can overhear two co-workers talking about Chicago. If you wait a minute or two, they will begin talking about John from IT. The male worker comments that whenever he requests help, John replies smugly with "Have you tried turning it off and on again?" That appears to be a reference to the popular British comedy, "The IT Crowd."
