Being an Assassin is tough man. Sure, sometimes you have your own ship and you can be a classic pirate, but most of the times you’re too busy hiding or sharpening your blade to actually make some good earning.
Yeah, everyone understands that being an assassin is more for the cause than anything, but a guy’s gotta eat, right?
Assassin’s Creed Unity Fast Money Tips
Making money in Assassin’s Creed: Unity is not exactly difficult, but there are so many options and quite a few of them aren’t optimum. Most of us want to make money and make it fast.
Thankfully, there are ways to make money, both on the longer run and in shorter periods. If you’re all up for that (and why wouldn’t you be?), then here are a few methods for efficient money-making.
Café Theatre, Social Clubs, and the Chest
While it may seem counter-intuitive, investing regularly in property is one of the major methods of actually getting more money. This may be one of the best ways for you to earn a handsome amount in a frequent manner.
Invest time in your Café Theatre by completing missions associated with it, and by renovating different cafés through Paris. Buying Social Clubs also helps, especially when you start off in poorer regions like Faubourg.
Buy these first, then slowly invest further in clubs located in the better areas. In addition to this, the chest in the Café Theatre’s Intendant’s Study receives a monetary deposit after every 20 minutes.
While this may not seem like much, you can simply ‘cheat’ your way by leaving the game on for a few hours, which will allow you to accumulate a good amount in the chest.
Once you receive the full chest notification, you can take that money and invest it in your property or keep it for more immediate usage.
Weapons Aren’t Worth it
You can purchase quite a few nice weapons, but honestly this is more of a luxury than an absolute necessity.
Once you have picked up a decent weapon of choice, there is no need to go and get more, as you can simply keep on upgrading its damage with Creed Points and stick to it for the longest periods.
Your money should be going elsewhere instead of offensive gadgets during most of the game.
Lockpicking Protected Chests in High Level Areas
It’s a skill that’s often overlooked, which is very strange because anyone who has played any RPG would know that Assassins are basically rogues, and rogues without lockpicking are meh.
Lockpicking will get you lots of additional money that you wouldn’t have if you chose to ignore it like most.
Whenever a new version is available of the skill, make sure you buy it. This will help you both in missions and also unlocking certain doors and chests that contain some good loot that you would otherwise never be able to take benefit of.
Protected Chests in high level areas are the red-icon Templar-protected chests on your map. These chests have varying degree of difficulty. Higher the difficulty, more the Templar protecting the chests and more will be resulting reward.
Do note that high-level chests will require higher Lockpicking skill. Make sure to have enough Creed Points to invest in your Lockpicking skill.
Considering you have the required skill and are able to open these chests, you should expect at least 5,000! The highest I have received so far is 6,500 with average being 5,000 from 15+ chests I have opened so far.
Time for a Heist
If you want money, you should head into co-op and perform some Heists.
Not only are the fun, they grant you specific payouts for finishing them. In addition to that, there are some huge bonus payouts if you can perform the missions in a stealthy way.
Keep them fuzzy slippers on and make your way through pin drop silence.
Helix Rifts are special missions that are unlocked at specific points in the game. They are a combination of two sub-missions: a run through the entire Rift, and then a Data Harvest. The latter part is what makes you rich.
Data Harvests give you plenty of money depending on how much of bonus data you collect.
What makes them even more convenient is that they are only a few minutes long at most. The only thing you’ll have to wait for is to actually unlock the Rifts by playing the game, but after that money will come much more easily than before.
