Specifically 'broadside', is it literally the broad side of a ship? Does that mean, I can only use 1 side? --- AC:CF: 5026-8347-6104 Hans @ Oceanic

It means sink three ships with one shot of your cannon.

Yeah, a broadside is the term for firing all the cannons on one side of a ship at once; easily done with a group of the little boats.

It means only use one side of your ship to fire your cannons, it does not mean sink 3 ships in one volley. --- I was born of your dreams. If you believe in me... ...there is nothing I cannot do

The standard definition of broadside refers to firing the guns, and would mean that it would indeed need to be a single salvo. Now if you managed to do it in multiple salvo's, then that means that the developers screwed up the message.
Either way, grape shot, and a mission with large numbers of gunboats will take care of it. I managed to get five in a single salvo. A sixth one only survived because of extreme distance. So I turned into it at full sail and rammed it. --- There are 10 types of people in the world. Those that know binary, and those that don't. Gamertag: Talon Omega
