As a pirate in Assassin’s Creed 4, you only care about treasures, money and rum. Among these, money to buy the upgrades and weapons is important for your survival considering game’s heavy focus on naval battles.
Buying resources for crafting and ship upgrades to survive the naval battles require money, which doesn’t come easy at the start of the game.
To make sure you have sufficient money whenever you need, you need to either farm all the naval ships in the sea, collect chests and find buried treasure among other things.
Alternatively, you can follow this easy infinite money exploit.
Assassin’s Creed 4 Infinite Money Exploit
During the main story in Sequence 2: Memory 3 you will come across three Templars standing around a table. You can sneak up and trigger ‘Pickpocket All Templars’ option objective.
You need to pickpocket all three Templars, but as soon as you do, pause the game and select ‘Reload Last Checkpoint’ option. Doing so will allow you to replay the optional objective and pickpocket them again.
Do note that every time you pickpocket them, money will be saved and replaying it will stack an equal amount of money, and if you can replay this option objective as many times as you want.
You can easily farm R 35,000 every seven minutes using this exploit. This is enough money to buy all the weapons and gear in the game. Since you can replay any sequence and memory in the game, you can easily use the same method on any of the memory you deem fit for this purpose.
If some future patch fixes this glitch, you can retry by using ‘Clear Hard drive cache’ option for Xbox 360.
