Earn Lots of Gold

Follow the tips below to earn lots of gold.

  1. Finish the side quests you receive, particularly assassination side quests, to be rewarded with lots of gold.
  2. You can steal gold from citizens you encounter, although it is not as easy a method of earning gold as others listed here.
  3. Manually loot the corpses of all of the enemies you defeat. Each will have a handful of gold. It adds up quickly, due to the number of enemies you kill.
  4. When you encounter animals in the game, kill them and skin them. Their skins can be sold for gold or used when crafting.
  5. While you travel in your ship, if you see materials you can salvage from the ocean, collect them to use or sell.
  6. Since you’re pirates, you should attack cargo ships to steal materials—some of which you will want to use to upgrade your ship, but others of which you can sell for gold. Rum and sugar can always be sold.
  7. Once you have upgraded your ship enough that you can fight high level ships, do so. They will have either a lot of gold or lots of materials and items on board.
  8. Whenever you encounter survivors, recruit them into your crew right then, so that you don’t have to pay to hire new crew members.
  9. Whenever you see a treasure chest, open it. You can find gold, ammo, upgrades, and other items.
  10. Grab all of the treasure maps you can find, because they will direct you to buried treasure chests, most of which are filled with gold.
