I think you do normal cannon attacks. eventually a hole will open up that lets you shoot at the gun powder with the mini guns. Hit that and it should work. --- "It's the stronger that make the weaker"- Milliardo Peacecraft
I believe I heard that the weak point of the ship is around the bow of the ship. Try ramming the front of the boat or only firing there to see if you can get the weak point to show. Try using chain shot before hand to slow down the ship first though.
straight on shot at the front, normal shot. a direct hit from point blank will open a burning circle just behind the pointy bit at the front.
use the swivel gun to detonate their powder stores and destroy the ship.
some people swear by ramming them but i just zigzag ahad of them until they try to ram me.
then i turn broadside and wait for them to get close. if i miss i start zigAgging again otherwise you can finish them off before they reach you since the swivel gun is ready to go. --- Xbox GT: AGE Sam Sneak
Focus round shot on the bow of the ship. With some luck, it'll open a weakspot. Otherwise, ram their front. It's mostly luck though. --- http://scottie-thenerd.deviantart.com www.youtube.com/user/NUSensei - Let's Play LOTR: War in the North on Legendary :)
I hit it with the flaming cannonballs and for some reason I wound up getting close enough to where you could almost board it and I hit it with the guns near the bow. It wound up setting the gun powder on fire and made it explode.
I don't think you can do that until it's been damaged. --- Frylock you're like the A bomb. When you show up everybody dies - Master Shake ATHF
