Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Contract 27 - The Treasure Hunter

By
Claire Farnworth

Upon accepting this contract, a red skull will appear on the map in the centre of Abaco Island in the northeast corner of the world map. A large red, circular restricted area will also now be present in the area. Sail over here and dock.

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, you can fast travel to the viewpoint itself, which is pretty much in the direct centre of the restricted area. From here you can easily use your Eagle Vision to identify the target.

Approaching over land can make it trickier to achieve the optional objective because of the target’s patrol pattern. Be very aware of every guard as you approach.

If not, you will have to come in overland on foot. Either way you’ll find the target patrolling in and out of a tent with a campfire in front of it just to the south of the viewpoint and approximately in line with the small island off the coast to the west. Once identified, run over and kill him to 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.
