Reward: 1000 Reales + 500 Reales for staying out of combat

Upon accepting this contract, a red skull will appear on the map in the centre of Cumberland Bay which is a fair sailing distance to our northwest. A large red, circular restricted area will have made itself welcome in the area. Sail over to the island and dock/swim ashore.

We now need to enter the restricted area and use Eagle Vision to identify the target. If you have been here previously and used the viewpoint to synchronise the map, do not fast travel to the viewpoint if you want the bonus 500 Reales as there is a Gunner standing right beside it and he will spot you as soon as you appear before you can do anything.

Be very careful as you run towards the area because these two guards and the Gunner can easily ruin your run before you even see the target.

As such, we’ll need to come in overland on foot. Either way you’ll find the target patrolling in and around some ledges just north of the viewpoint. Once identified, sneak up and dispatch him as you see fit. This will complete the contract.

The year is 1715. Pirates rule the Caribbean and have established their own lawless Republic where corruption, greediness, and cruelty are commonplace. Among these outlaws is a brash young captain named Edward Kenway. His fight for glory has earned him the respect of legends like Blackbeard, but also drawn him into the ancient war between Assassins and Templars, a war that may destroy everything the pirates have built.
