Game Cheats:

Easy Boarding
If you are going up against big ships (like frigates), position your ship near your target and then swim to the ship to take the crew out in close quarters combat. When you've done that, swim back to the Jackdaw and then hit each ship with one broadside. You immediately win the boarding sequence that follows, without having to go into heavy fighting.

Infinite Money (Exploit)
In Sequence 2: Memory 3, you'll encounter an optional objective requiring you to pickpocket all Templars. There are three of them in the area, which follows shortly after a checkpoint. You can pick their pockets, then chose the option to "Reload Last Checkpoint." When you do, you'll find that the money you pocketed remains in your possession. You can repeat the process as often as you like before continuing the mission, and you can also come back to the mission later in the game if you wish. It's possible to earn 35,000R after around 7 minutes of effort. This exploit may soon be patched, so you'll want to play using the game's initial version if that proves to be the case.

All Mayan Stela locations:
Search the indicated locations to find all 16 Mayan Stela puzzles. The first puzzle is part of DNA Sequence 4: Memory 1 (it cannot be missed). After completing this memory, the other Mayan Stela puzzles will become available. Some of them are on islands in dangerous ocean zones; thus, it is recommended to upgrade your ship and continue through the story to make all locations accessible. You can also view the Mayan Stela locations on your map if you synchronize the viewpoints of their respective area. To check which ones you have found, open the progress tracker, and select the "Mayan Stela" tab. It provides an overview of islands that contain the secret puzzles. Once all 16 puzzles have been solved, travel to Tulum. There will be a marker on your map saying "Mayan Outfit". Go to that location in Tulum (70, 405 coordinates), and open the secret door to get the "Vault Raider" achievement, along with the special Mayan outfit.

Easy 100,000 Money:
The first requirement is to complete the mission "Mister Walpole, I presume?" which is Sequence 2 Memory 3 of the main story. Once completed and outside of a mission, open your pause menu (Esc key for PC users), choose Progress Tracker, select Sequence 2, Memory 3, and start a replay of that same mission. Play the mission normally until you reach the point (after an obvious cut-scene) that
displays an optional objective to pickpocket the three Templars. Once at that point, pickpocket the three Templars for an average of 750 - 850 Reales. Once pick-pocketed, immediately pause the game and choose Reload. Reload from last checkpoint. The game will allow you to keep the Reales you earned and pickpocket the Templars again. Repeat the above steps until you have 100,000 or more Reales. This can be done in a few minutes time, and 100,000 can easily cover about 20% of the total game's purchases.

Note: The game developers prevent you from farming any more than 100,000 Reales on your person using this tactic, so to maximize profit, don't begin farming until you've spent all your previous money to get as much as you can out of it.

Easy money:
Note: This trick requires a decent amount of hull armor and 10 or more mortar rounds for the Jackdaw ship. Travel to the legendary ship battle in the northeast corner of the map, with the two legendary ships that attack you. You will not be able to defeat both ships without your ship fully upgraded, but you will be able to defeat one if you complete the following steps. When the
battle starts, shoot two mortar rounds at the ship you are focusing on while turning around, then release your fire barrels. When they get close, use your heavy shot. Do not get between the two opposing ships or you will quickly be defeated. Once they pass, keep shooting mortars at the ship you are trying to defeat while they are turning around. Repeat the previous steps until you destroy the ship you are focused on. Quickly pick up the loot from the destroyed legendary ship, or else the other ship will ram and sink you quickly. You will get 10,000 Reales and be able to keep it after you die. Repeat this process as many times as desired.

The IT Crowd
If you go to the map near the entrance to the modern-day Abstergo offices, you can overhear two co-workers talking about Chicago. If you wait a minute or two, they will begin talking about John from IT. The male worker comments that whenever he requests help, John replies smugly with "Have you tried turning it off and on again?" That appears to be a reference to the popular British comedy, "The IT Crowd."

Hunt a Killer Whale (Killer Killer Achievement):
It is advised that you purchase plenty of Harpoon upgrades before starting this event as the extra armour, harpoon storage and strength will make hunting wales easier. Find a Killer Whale hunting location (one can be found at the coordinates: 537, 340 on the world map) and sail until a deck hand announces that prey can be seen. When the prompt button appears Kenway will be sent out to hunt the killer whale. Peg the whale with a harpoon so you follow it but be careful when it dives underwater because when it reappears it will charge the boat. If you do not hit it with a harpoon when it charges the boat you will take some damage. When you have depleted the whales health bar (top left corner of the screen) the event has been completed and you will have earned the Killer Killer
