As with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, in addition to the various aspects of the game involving stealth, assassinating, sword and gunplay, players can now craft items to provide passive bonuses for Shay that will assist them in a number of facets of gameplay. These include items that can improve health, increase the effectiveness of the darts/grenades Shay uses and the amount of ammunition on hand. To craft these items, players must find the required reagents in the environment by hunting/harpooning the appropriate animals and then use the crafting option in the main menu to create the desired items.

Craft-able items come in a few flavours and these include things such as:

  • Health upgrades
  • Ammo capacity upgrades
  • Creating projectiles
  • Crafting unique outfits

Many of the more advanced recipes require you to track down and skin some rare and elusive animals. For a guide to finding and hunting all of the animal types in the game check out the hunting guide above.

Below you’ll find a list of all the items that we can craft in the game, organised by upgrades, outfits and projectiles. Beside each, there will be a brief description of what the upgrade will do along with what reagents are required.
