The key is to hit them with ZR Fire from the side of your ship- which weapon you use depends on where you point the camera. The front view launches attacks to the front that don’t do much damage. For those you should aim for the masts. Aim to the side and hold ZL to aim to fire and do moderate damage. But if you don’t hold ZL and just hit ZR without aiming (while looking to the side) you use heavy shot that does crazy damage. Usually I look to the side and then hold ZL just to see where my aim is at, then when I’m lined up I let go and hit ZR for big damage. Keep in mind though, the “shoot from the hilt” side shots for massive damage don’t travel nearly as far. So you do need to be a lot closer. Aim behind the ship to lay explosive barrels, which is good when your being chased or the enemy is ship is behind you. They probably won’t hit the explosive barrels but it will force them to turn which means they won’t be able to hit you with a forward shot, and that gives you a chance to turn and hit them with a side shot.

After a good hit you will also see the X button pop up sometimes on the enemy’s ship. When you see that press and hold X until the red cursor lines up on top of the crosshair, then let go to do bonus damage. This is good to do after you hit them and your weapons are recharging.

Also you want to press and hold Y to brace for impact if you’re about to get hit or rammed. This can greatly reduce damage taken. But you have to time it to just before you get hit. You have a few seconds window you just don’t want to start holding it 10 seconds in advance or something like that.

Then my strategy is to circle around them so I am always able to hit them from the side. And you won’t be able to hold that position perfectly but when they are no longer lined up with the side of your ship then I just maneuver the ship and turn it so that I’m aimed at them again.

So anyways, yeah....Kenway's Fleet.

How do you get more trade materials so you can do more missions? For some reason I don't remember having this issue on the Wii U, but yeah, I can barely send any ships out.

Fighting battles to make routes safer.

Just got the blowpipe and sleep darts... now we’re talkin. This thing is awesome. Game feels much like Splinter Cell or MGS. I love it.

All the Ubisoft Club rewards for Assassin’s Creed Rebel Collection. Some fantastic rewards in there. I got em all.

edit
Assassin’s Creed Rebel Collection has now jumped all the way to the #21 spot on the eShop, and is actually improving on Amazon’s best sellers list, moving from #150 at launch to #119, despite games usually dropping after launch day since its updated hourly.

That’s so good to see 😁 A high quality release, and word of mouth is having its effect.

Does anyone know what the hell is up with the fort in Punta Guarico? Like, no matter what I do I CANNOT get inside, Ed just becomes a complete wimp and doesn't want to climb ANYTHING here, wtf? >.<

EDIT: Never mind, ugh...it bugs the crap out of me that I can't do anything with it. I gotta wait. lol

...Wut? From I read it's impossible to get into the fort since it's a story mission thing.
EDIT: ...Yeah, you're thinking of another place, there's no fire. xD

@JaxonH I got my copy from dad in the post yesterday, and played some last night and this morning on the Lite. This game looks gorgeous!! I don’t even remember it looking this great on my 50” on X1. The screen brightness jacked up to 100 on the Lite really makes all the colors and details pop, too.

@HobbitGamer
Ya! That's what I'm sayin. It's an uber-high-quality Switch port. Cross gen game means pushing the absolute max out of hardware of this power level, with 8 years of practice iterating to perfection. And Switch Lite is just powerful enough to run games like this. Amazing.

The Club Ubisoft rewards are totally worth checking out for this game too. And there's an optional bonus DLC with pics and videos and manga and journal. Totally recommend. Deluxo package here. A dang fine game (dang fine four games, or 2.5 rather). The bonus content just make makes it feel chock full of content, as if Black Flag, Freedom Cry, Aveline and Rogue didn't already.

@JaxonH Only a few days now til I pick up my copy. Seriously cannot wait to get my pirate life on. Looks like the perfect summer/Christmas title (Aussie). Pretty sure it will be a contender for my favourite game of all time.

@JaxonH I downloaded the books and will read them once I can tear myself away. I’ve 100% Cheevoed black flag twice already, but it’s too beautiful on Switch to not scour everything again.

It’s a great game for sure. I don’t know if it’s on my all time list, but then again... I can safely say it’s in my top 50 of all time. Could be higher up than that, but I would have to sift through the actual list to see where it pans out.

What makes the Rebel Collection so good though is the fact all the DLC and previously PS exclusive expansions are included, along with Rogue which is, by all accounts, pretty much almost just as good as Black Flag- it just depends if you prefer the snowy setting more and the protagonist (which, I like Shay Cormack and the whole storyline premise of turning to the Templars- I at least played the beginning of the game to get a feel for it).

So glad to see this game doing well. It’s up to #60 on Amazon after having a nice run in the eShop. Also, it’s on sale for $29.99. I ordered a copy just to return under my original order.

@JaxonH Here’s hoping the Ezio Trilogy would be in the cards. I’d love to go back through that storyline via portable.

I’ve not even gotten to Sequence 5 in Black Flag, and I have my Jackdaw maxed other than the prerequisite plan upgrades. Swoopin in and stealin Man O’War convoys like a boss.

I'm hoping for that, as well. I left off at 2 and don't wanna jump back in so far ahead in the series.

I'm still waiting for a sale to get it.

I'm seriously considering this as my next game once I finish Witcher 3 (nearly through Blood and Wine - just wow.)

I've never played an Assassin's Creed game though, and I'm a bit worried how it'll compare with Witcher and Skyrim, in terms of story, humour, character development etc. Am I wrong to compare them?
The setting appeals, but not sure about the sea battles - guess I'll either love or hate it.

I have one question regarding combat. Looking at YouTube vids there seems to be certain sections where you hunt down and kill soldiers. But on those vids you jump down or walk into a group, kill one... while the other soldiers stand stupidly inert, watching the slaughter and waiting for their turn to be killed. Is that typical?
