Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag Hideout Upgrades Guide

How to fully upgrade Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag Hideout to unlock FTFY achievement or trophy in the game.

In Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, Ubisoft has tried to fit in all the core elements of previous Assassin’s Creed installments in addition to some new features that complement both the main protagonist, Edward Kenway and the era in which the game takes place. And it is good to see that their efforts are fruitful!

When we talk about previous Assassin Creed installments, one of the most enjoyable aspect that comes to our mind is building and upgrading towns. And although as a pirate, you will no longer be able to do that, but you certainly get to design your hide-out.

Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag Hideout Upgrades

Like Jackdaw and Edward Kenway himself, upgrading Hide-out unlock certain features which add to the overall fun factor of the game. However, upgrading it quite pricy and in honest advice; you should consider upgrading Jackdaw or Edward first. Upgrading your Hide-out also unlocks the FTFY trophy or achievement.

Below, you will find a list of all available upgrades for your Hide-out:

Brothel requires you to invest in a solid 15,000 Reales but the reward is promising; you will be able to hire dancers for free which means distract as many guards as you wish.

This upgrade allows you to hire Drunk Pirates to travel with you and start those baseless fights with the guards to get you a quick escape. It costs 7,000 Reales.

General Store
By paying 700 Reales, you will get a General Store at the Pier.

This upgrade costs you 500 Reales and will add Harbormaster Shop on the Pier.

Manor Facade
For 6,000 Reales, you will get nothing except an overhaul of your Hide-out.

Manor Guesthouse
The most high-priced upgrade of your Hide-out. Upgrading your Hide-out with this upgrade will unlock the FTFY Achievement/Trophy (10G/Bronze). It costs a massive 40,000 Reales.

Manor Towers & Gardens
Yet another overhaul upgrade which costs you 18,000 Reales.

The final upgrade for your upgrade lets you have your very own Tavern for 3,500 Reales.
