how do YOU board ships?

#1DrFeelgood1235Posted 11/1/2013 9:38:48 AM
Not How to. But how do you do it?

Rope swing? Wait and jump over? Swim over?

Side note how do I use mortars?

I go up to the sails and air assassinate from there.

To use mortars you hold L2 and use right stick to aim and R1 to fire

Mortars: Use L2 to aim them and R1 to fire. these are great when they are in front of you. I generally do the chain shot first to slow them down a bit, grab the mortar and blast em. farewell half the ship strength.

I generally use the swivel cannons once the boarding has started.
Can normally get at least 5/10 enemies down with those.
depending on my mood, i'll either go onto the railing and just shoot down whatever i need to finish them off, or if i'm not in a rush, rope swing over.
there are a couple ships that require me to go on the other ship, same concept though. i just reload before hopping over if i need it.

Rope Swing on to the ship if I am feeling lazy, or take the zipline up to the sail then jump to the other ship's sails and assassinate someone to start the fight.

Depends on the target.

I always man the swivel gun first, but how I use it differs. If there's a "kill officers" or "kill captain" objective, those targets are my first priority with the cannon. If those objectives don't exist, I primarily aim for killing as many enemies as possible. If there's a "destroy powder stores" objective, I'll kill at least one of them, but I'll try my best to make it clear a few crew members with it.

After clearing the deck, if there are survivors (Against Schooners, this is rare), I'll generally use the nearest rope to swing across - UNLESS there was a "kill scouts" objective, in which case I take the lift up and shoot the scouts down, then cross onto the enemy ship from above.

I've been lazy with the last few. I just shoot them from my boat with my pistols.

Use the lift to go up high, then swing down and assassinate someone from the rope. If you're gonna pirate, do it in style!
