Assassin’s Creed Black Flag Cheats – Be the Best Pirate

on

Assassin’s Creed Black Flag is one of the most revered titles in the history of the legendary franchise. It was released in 2013 and it quickly became a fan-favourite, offering up a massive map to explore, an immersive story to complete, and countless side activities. It also became one of the first games in the series to go hand-in-hand with a series of cheats – some of which were highly entertaining. In this guide, we’re breaking down the best Assassin’s Creed Black Flag cheats and how to unlock them.

There aren’t any Assassin’s Creed Black Flag cheat codes as such, but there are cheats that you can unlock over time. It’s a little more challenging than just slamming in a button-based code, but it makes it more fun at the end of the day. It has been speculated that there’s a remaster of Assassin’s Creed Black Flag on the horizon, so these cheats will remain relevant for quite some time.

So, read on to learn how to unlock cheats for Assassin’s Creed Black Flag.

Why is Assassin’s Creed Black Flag so Good?

It’s mostly subjective, but there are many reasons why Assassin’s Creed Black Flag is considered one of the best games in the series. Firstly, it boasts a fantastic story that immerses players for a good sixty or seventy hours. There is plenty of side content to be uncovered, collectables to be found, and countless locations to explore. It offered up one of the biggest maps that the series had ever seen when it was released in 2013, and it was all made explorable at the helm of a customisable pirate ship.

It was one of the last ‘original’ Assassin’s Creed games to be released before the formula changed in 2014 with Assassin’s Creed Unity. It then changed again in 2017 with Assassin’s Creed Origins, and Black Flag forever became one of the final ‘old-gen’ Assassin’s Creed games to be released.

It looks great, even today – and it plays even better. It’s highly entertaining, steeped in lore, and it has some of the best expansions the series has ever seen, particularly with Freedom Cry, which was released later as a standalone game. If you’ve never played it, it’s worth parting ways with a few dollars, pounds, or euros to secure a copy.

How to Unlock More Assassin’s Creed Black Flag Items

There are a few items that you can unlock in the Uplay store in Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, but you’ll need ‘Uplay Points’ to do so. For instance:

  • 500 Reales (money) – 10 Uplay Points
  • Edward the Legend Outfit – 20 Uplay Points
  • Blades of Toledo – 30 Uplay Points
  • Vengeful Daughter Outfit – 40 Uplay Points

There are other exclusive outfits that can be unlocked, too – but most of them require investment in a previous game. For instance, you can unlock an Altair costume if you have any Uplay data from a previous game. That’s the same for Connor Kenway and Ezio Auditore outfits – and all of them look fantastic on Edward Kenway.

It’s worth bearing in mind that basically everything in Assassin’s Creed Black Flag that can be collected results in a reward being handed over. For instance, if you collect all 16 of the Mayan Stones that are littered around the map, you’ll get access to a unique Mayan outfit. If you finish at least fifty percent of the Assassin Contracts in the game, you’ll unlock the ‘Stealth’ outfit. Or, if you collect five keys from the Templar Hunt missions, you can get the ‘Templar’ outfit.

There are plenty of things to secure, and not all of them are hidden behind the best Assassin’s Creed Black Flag cheats.
