Infinite money glitch...

So I dunno if this is already known or not, but I just discovered a way to get infinite cash in this game. Thought I would share, for those of you who just want to rush upgrades and not play the game for what its worth. (I will admit I am rushing my Jackdaw on the 360 version, while I wait for my X1 version that I'll 100%.) ... Anyway, it's simple:

1. Find a Royal escorted ship. TAKE NOTE OF ITS LOCATION/SPAWN. It's worth 10,000 when you beat it, whether you board it or not. I just sink it and click X on the floating cargo, and it awards 10k.

2. Do NOT sink the ships escorting it. Only sink the Royal ship itself, worth 10k (you can see this in your scope).

3. Collect your 10k.

4. Let the escorts + any other involved ships destroy you. This causes Animus-desync.

5. You will respawn. Open your map, and head to where the Royal Escort was. This is why you took note of its location.

6. It will spawn again/already be there, ready to be sunk again.


Each time you sink it, and collect your 10k, and get killed, the game saves as it desyncs and respawns you. But the escort keeps spawning. So... 10k every time. Just gotta travel to it.

I sunk it 10+ times for an easy 100,000+. If you're lucky like me, there will be a ton of other ships nearby you can aggro. Some you can destroy and collect rum + sugar to sell later. It adds up too.

Enjoy. Sorry if this was already posted/widely known.

Cool find. :) I knew the royals gave 10k but I didn't think about dying and trying this out.

Good. But could you post the the coordinates for one. Many would appreciate it.

Aren't they random spawns? I don't know all the details about how those events spawn.

Me either. I think they spawn in the deep southern part of the map. Can someone confirm its the blue icon with the boat sail and "R" by it

if it's blue icon, then it's one that can be shared with your friends if you have friends in the game. You find it, the location appears for your friends as well.

Love those :D

So it's basically a ship with the letter "R" as the icon on the world map?

Infinite money isn't really necessary so long as you find all the treasures and go for these royal convoys and white whales regularly when you spot them. I'm nearing the end of the game now and I have plenty of money but just need more resources. I have bought everything except for just two jackdaw upgrades which I have enough money for. I never found any need to farm for money.

I think if you want the real experience it is better to play the game normally because everything is pretty well balanced in terms of when you will have enough cash for upgrades and weapons. They introduced this need for ship plans to make sure you don't overpower your ship right at the start.

Not that I'm against the TC for sharing this or anything, I just think people should be aware that unlike other games where you may be at the end of the game without enough money for all the items, in this one you won't be too short of money and will be able to buy everything.

What about resources? I'm always short on wood man. (no pun intended)
