If as the brave Edward you aspire to become the real terror of the seas in Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, get ready to scrape together a huge amount of money, because without a good supply of hard cash you won't even scare the little fish Nemo.
All the ways to earn money in AC4
Especially at the beginning of the game it will not be easy to find the amount of money needed to upgrade your weapons and your ship. So let's see what are the fastest and most profitable methods to earn a lot of money in a short time.
1) Glitch / Exploit endless money
Let's start with the most banal, but also the most effective method. In sequence 3, Memory 2, there is a commercial where you can repeat a simple action over and over again, earning all the money you want. Follow the guide to have infinite money in AC4 for more details.
2) Loot the other ships
After the glitch seen in point 1), this is probably the best way to make money in Assassin's Creed 4. Get into your ship and set sail with your eyes peeled for more convoys to ram, destroy and raid. Defeating another ship will always have good rewards in terms of loot, especially if it is one of the 4 legendary ships. For each defeated Legendary Ship you will earn 20.000 Reales, as well as other rewards. Follow the Guide to Legendary Ships to find out where to find them and how to beat them.
3) Find the buried treasures
It may seem trivial, but doing a bit of accounts it turns out that finding all the buried treasures on the game map accumulates the sum of over 100.000 Real. The treasures are not marked in any way, but by rummaging through the places you visit you will easily find the treasure maps, which indicate the exact location where you need to dig. Follow ours guide to the buried treasures of Assassin's Creed 4 to find them all.
4) Assassin Missions
Each of these missions will earn you 1.000 credits, which can become 1500 if you manage to complete the job without being discovered. There are 30 Assassination Contracts in total in the game, so we're talking a lot of money. Follow the Assassin mission guide to find out where to start and how to complete these missions to earn more money.
5) Templar Hunt and Naval Missions
The hunt for the Templars is another secondary activity that can be carried out in AC 4. In this case the available missions are only 4 (in turn divided into several other sub-quests), but completing them you can also earn 3.000 Real. Follow the quest guide Templar Hunt for more details. When you are done, you can also dedicate yourself to naval missions. In these missions the gain ranges from 1800R to 2400R. If you have difficulty completing any of them, follow ours naval mission guide.
6) Go hunting and don't abuse the "Fast travel" feature
You will need the animal skins to create various useful items, but the pieces you have left over can always be resold for more money. So try not to use the "Fast travel" function too much, but take some time to explore the sea: only in this way will you have the opportunity to meet prized prey and discover treasures (see also submerged wrecks) that you would otherwise never have found. The white whale and orca are excellent examples of animals to hunt to earn money.
