Finding Pivots

Note: Pivots only become available after completing the campaign, or during the Epilogue. Pivots are hidden collectibles that can be found throughout the game. Pivots can only be found while online. However, you can use the tutorial while in offline mode to find the first three Pivots. You must collect the first three Pivots to find more. The rest of the Pivots are randomly placed by other players, which is why you must be online to collect the rest of the Pivots. To find the player placed Pivots, you need to triangulate their position using the first three Pivots you collected. Placing the three Pivots will create a green search zone on your map. These Pivots can be removed and added on your map screen (remove them by placing the cursor over the pivot, and add them by placing the cursor over the "Connor" icon). Once a search zone has been created, search for a square icon on your mini-map to find a new Pivot. Each Pivot unlocks a new Animus Hack cheat code under the options menu. Pivots spawn every 15 minutes; a timer will appear in the menus. Each Pivot is placed manually by a player. Thus, if another player finds your assigned Pivot before you collect it, the Pivot will change locations.

Shard Of Eden

Successfully complete all five Captain Kidd missions to get the Shard Of Eden ring, which decreases the chance of being hit by bullets. When the Shard Of Eden deflects a bullet, a yellow animation will appear.

Easy money

Keep spawning and looting convoys to get a lot of good loot quickly. A convoy is a horse-drawn carriage that is guarded by some soldiers and a drummer. They can only be found in the Frontier area. There are certain areas they spawn, but they also will randomly appear during any daytime and weather condition. One of the convoys has approximately a 50% chance to spawn in front of the Templar Fort that is located in the south-western corner of the map. There is a harbor nearby that can be used as a fast travel station. If the convoy does not spawn, you can travel to another map and return. Defeat all the enemies guarding the convoy, then interact with the back of the carriage to get some good loot. Repeat this as many times as desired.

Easy incognito

Use the following trick to go from notorious (wanted) to incognito (not wanted) without paying a bribe to the crier or the printer, and without tearing down any posters. Once you are anonymous (unseen by the enemy), you can use "fast travel" -- and when you do so, you will become incognito again.

Changing equipment

To change equipment (for example, to use a new sword), enter the "Equipment" screen at a shop to switch items. Note: Some items, such as certain outfits, can be switched in the basement of the homestead manor.

Saving time with Nathem

During the first two or three sequences where you play as Natham, do not spend any time acquiring money or weapons, as you will lose them all after switching over to Conner.

Almanac Page locations

Search the indicated locations to find all 36 Almanac Pages (20 in Boston and 16 in New York.). You can also buy an in-game map at the general store that reveals all the Almanac Page locations. One Almanac chapter consists of four different pages. Each chapter unlocks an invention for your Homestead Manor. Once you get near a page, it will start flying away. Walk into a page to collect it. If you do not catch the page, it will disappear. All pages will respawn after a short period of time. Just walk approximately 100 meters away from the spawn point, and return after a minute.

Boston

New York

Feather locations

Search the indicated locations to find all 50 Feathers (4 in Monmouth, 5 in Packanack, 2 in Valley Forge, 11 in Black Creek, 3 in Kanièn:Keh, 4 in Diamond Basin, 2 in Concord, 5 in Troy's Wood, 3 in Scotch Plains, 4 in Lexington, 5 in Great Piece Hills, and 2 in John's Town). They are all scattered across the Frontier. Most can be found on trees, and only a few are well hidden inside buildings or caves. You can also buy an in-game map at the general store that reveals all the Feather locations.

Homestead mission locations

There are a total of 37 Homestead missions in the game. The first two will be completed during the main story missions. The other 35 missions need to be played in a specific order. The Homestead has its own storyline, and there will only be a few missions available at a time. Completing those missions will make the Homestead larger, and settlers will be able to craft special items that can be traded for money. The more missions you complete, the more recipes that will be unlocked, and you can craft higher quality items. Successfully complete all Homestead missions to unlock Achille's original Assassin outfit.

Peg Leg Trinket locations

Search the indicated locations to find all 24 Peg Leg Trinkets. The Peg Leg Trinkets are used in the Peg Leg side-quest, and will unlock secret areas like Fort Wolcott and Oak Island. The quest giver can be found at the harbor of the Homestead. Return the Trinkets to him to progress in the side-quest. You can also buy an in-game map at the general store that reveals all the Trinket locations.

Templar Fort locations

Search the indicated locations to find all seven Templar Forts (two in Boston, three in the Frontier, and two in New York). They will not show up on the in-game map unless you have found them. Liberating the forts will lower taxes and increase your income from convoys. To liberate them, you must always kill the fort captain, blow up the power reserves, and lower the British flag.

Treasure chest locations

Search the indicated locations to find all treasures. Treasure chests contain recipes, money, and other value items.

Item crafting recipes

There is only one way to craft an item, but all items can be crafted without a recipe. Thus, it is important to know exactly which materials to use to craft an item because you will lose the ingredients if you do not combine the correct materials to create an item. Most crafted items are only good for selling, but there are some specialty items that can be crafted that will create unique weapons and upgrades. Most specialty recipes can be found in treasure chests in outdoor areas. The specialty items can be crafted at any time as long as you have the required material(s) and artisan level(s). Some artisans will only gain levels at certain points in the game; thus, you may have to wait until later in the game before certain specialty items can be crafted. Additionally, specialty items sometimes require special materials to construct.

You must recruit all artisans and workers before you can increase their levels. Note: Not all side-quests and events have prerequisites, but many do. Thus, complete them in the order listed below to gain all the indicated levels, as long as you find all events. If any of the listed artisan levels are not obtained, you may not be able to continue with one or more artisans and workers.

Special Frontiersmen side-quests

There are some special Frontiersmen side-quests you can find in the game that revolve around famous urban legends. The side-quests can be found in the indicated locations. Note: Once you complete a side-quest, check the Animus Database for some additional background information regarding the side-quest.

    Sasquatch

    After completing "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" Frontiersmen quest, you can find the "Finding The Sasquatch" side-quest in the northeast area of the Frontier. In the woods, you will find a few Frontiersmen sitting around a camp fire. Speak with them, and they will tell you a story about Sasquatch before the side-quest begins. The side-quest will lead you to a cave near a waterfall to the northwest. Inside the cave, you will find an ordinary man.

    The Headless Horseman

    After completing "The Haunted Lighthouse" side-quest, talk to the same men who gave you that side-quest. They will tell you a story about a German mercenary without a head before the side-quest begins. The side-quest will lead you to a dead body. Then, a real Headless Horsemen with only a pumpkin for a head will appear before running off.

    The Haunted Lighthouse

    After completing the "Finding The Sasquatch" side-quest, talk to the same men who gave you that side-quest. They will tell you a story about a haunted lighthouse before the side-quest begins. The side-quest will lead you to a lighthouse in the east area of the Frontier. Once you climb to the top of the lighthouse, you will find a scarecrow.

    The Loch Ness Monster

    After completing "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" Frontiersmen quest, talk to some Frontiersmen in a tavern on the east side of Boston to get the "Monster Of The Sea" side-quest. They will tell you a story about an encounter on the high seas with a monster before the side-quest begins. You will then be lead around Boston to listen in on stories from three other people. Talk to all three people to discover the true source, which is just an old atmospheric diving suit.

    UFO Sightings

    After completing the "Monster Of The Sea" side-quest, talk to the same men who gave you that side-quest. They will tell you a story about a UFO encounter before the side-quest begins. The side-quest will lead you west of the city. Once you climb a tree to find the true source of the sighting, you will just find an umbrella.

Getting 100% synchronization

The following videos will show you how to do everything necessary to get 100% synchronization in the game:

Sequences 1-3

Sequences 4-6

Sequences 7-9

Sequences 10-12

Cool Hand Luke reference

When you bump into certain women around Boston, they will say "What we have here is a failure to communicate." This is a reference to a famous line in the 1967 movie Cool Hand Luke.

MMA reference

During an early sequence with Desmond in Brazil, you will be running through a stadium's catwalks. If you look down, you will see an MMA fight with Guilherme Venancio vs. Luis Otavio Duris.
