* GuideDangIt: The instructions for the "optional objectives" needed for full synchronization are not always clear. "Disarm three guards and kill them?" OK, but where did you mention having to kill them with their own weapons? Similarly, the requirement that you remain undetected while looking for [[spoiler: Hornigold]] fails to specify that it only applies to the sea segment and one odd requirement for the penultimate mission flashes up briefly at the beginning of the [[spoiler: climactic fight with El Tiburón]], and only applies to that specific fight sequence, so expect a few frustrating reloads. ** Possibly the worst offender is "Visit old friends", in the mission ''Suffer Without Dying''. The only hint is the 0/2 (indicating that there are two people to find) - beyond that, you are given no indication of where to go. Even worse, the main mission already involves finding two of Edward's old friends...

* BottomlessMagazines: Averted for the most part, as with every other game in this series, but played straight with the [[ImpossiblyCoolWeapon pistol swords]], which can fire off finishers for a whole galleon consecutively.

** The bio for Josiah Burgess in the database includes some staff comments suggesting that, since so little is known about him, maybe they could get away with [[Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra tattooing a treasure map on his back.]]

* CanonWelding: An EasterEgg the Abstergo analyst can find while hacking computers puts WatchDogs into the TheVerse of Assassin's Creed (and all other Ubisoft games that were in the game's universe).

** In the modern-day segments, one of the Abstergo employees can be heard saying that their interaction with the IT department mostly consists of [[Series/TheITCrowd being asked to turn their computer off and on again in a pompous tone.]]

* MacGuffin: The Templar package that Adéwalé steals at the beginning, then uses as a bargaining chip to get Bastienne to help. The game never says what it is, or why the Governor wants it, or why it is more important than Adéwalé's entire crew, as Adéwalé claims. ** Fortunately, AC:Rogue not only brings the package back into focus, but also shows it's importance. Unfortunately, the package leads to[[spoiler: Massive Earthquakes in Haiti and Lisbon, which prompts Shays betrayal and purge of the Colonial Assassins prior to III, not to mention him kicking off the events of Unity by killing Arno's Father and starting the French Revolution]]. From a plot perspective, it could be considered an ArtifactOfDoom.
