Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag


Claire Farnworth

There are 30 assassin contracts in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and all of them have you hunting down and killing a specific target in a series of different locations.

For each assassination contract you fulfil, you will earn 1000 Reales , with some of the trickier contracts giving a bonus of an additional 500 Reales if the assassination is carried out without the player entering combat beforehand.

Assassin contracts are first introduced during Memory Sequence 05 and following this, they can be accessed and initiated from pigeon coops marked with a skull icon located all across the Caribbean.

Here are a couple of quick hints and tips to get through these missions quietly:

  • Staying out of combat refers to doing so before attacking the target. Defending yourself after the target is dead will not affect the reward given as you will gain the reward as soon as the target is dead.
  • The easiest way to kill each target without entering combat is to identify them and then shoot them with a headshot from a stalking zone or outside of the restricted area they reside in.

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.
