Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag Cheats, Exploits and Secrets

By   /   2 years ago

The tradition of cheating in games to progress further has dissipated over the past 10 years, simply because there are no more of those nearly impossible first-person shooters, those painstakingly difficult levels, and the encouragement to throw your console into infernal fire and watch it burn into a crisp.

That’s why many games don’t actually come with formal cheats now, but those that do only do for the fun of it.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is like that, with a few fun cheats that can give you godly abilities. However, you can’t save while these cheats are active, so you know quite well that the developers added them just for the fun of it.

Of course, there are exploits as well, which are discover and (even sometimes invented) as a result of the genius tendencies that we gamers possess.

Following is the list of all the cheats known to us so far that can be accessed in AC4. But first, let’s talk about a little exploit:

Naval Battle Exploit
So you want to capture and loot an enemy ship, eh? Well, the game says it’s customary for you to shoot at them, weaken them significantly, board them, and then kill off their crews.

There’s a simple work around if you, like most of us, find this a rather longish procedure. AC4 gives you the advantage with the fact that transition from being on-foot to being in the ship is as seamless as mounting on a horse.

What you can do is approach the target ship you wish to board, get off your ship, swim to the enemy boat, kill off the crew, swim back to the Jackdaw, and shoot the enemy ship once or twice and win the boarding sequence.

It’s actually easier said than done, but if you can manage to practice it properly, most of them ships will be a cakewalk to take over.
