Added DiffLines:

* CuttingTheKnot: If you donít feel like hunting animals for parts to upgrade Shayí carrying capacity, you can simply use [[MoneyForNothing your sizable fortune]] to buy parts from a store.


* FakeLongevity: The Fleet Missions. There are 33 of them, & later missions take 1-2 hours to complete. Itís possible to finish the game AND grab all other bonuses before even finishing this activity.

** While these missions continue to run even when youíre not playing, sometimes they donít for absolutely no reason.


** Special mention goes to Altairís Sword, which you get for completing all [[FakeLongevity Fleet Missions.]]



** Altair's sword ''can'' be acquired before going into the final missions, but you need to complete the Naval Campaign to unlock it. This can't be done until very late in the story, and actually finishing the last set of naval missions takes much more time than what the rest of the story has to offer by that point.

Added DiffLines:

* DumpStat: The Damage stat is useless for swords, since youíl be instantly killing most of your opponents.


Added DiffLines:

* OneStatToRuleThemAll: The Combo stat on swords. The higher the value, the less times you need to hit your opponent before killing them instantly.

* DisproportionateRetribution: Abstergo ''really'' don't like hoodies. The cost for one of their employees wearing one is an official warning, at the very least, and the high likelihood for being fired.

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuitySnarl: A minor case in the final memory: as [[spoiler: Charles Dorian]] is dying, he points out that [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII Connor Kenway]] reverses Shayís [[ThePurge purge]] of the Colonial Assassins. The problem is that this scene takes place in December of 1776, only a few months after the Colonial Templars could confirm that the Colonial Assassins were even ''attempting'' to make a comeback, and well before Connor truly loosened their iron grip on America.

Numbskull's diary even mentions that they don't know if they want to join cause their eyes have been opened...or because they are scared of dying]].


* MoneyForNothing: No other ''AC'' game makes it easier to amass so much money so quickly with so little effort. For starters, every captured ship can be converted into cash straight away, with even humble schooners giving 750 pounds apiece. This makes upgrading Shay and the ''Morrigan'' a cakewalk long before the renovation feature is unlocked, which is the point where it gets ridiculous. Renovating buildings only costs a small amount of resources for a very respectable regular payday, and once you're done, chances are you won't have anything meaningful left to spend your ~35,000 pounds per 20 real-world minutes on (for reference: the most expensive ''Morrigan'' upgrade costs 25,000 pounds, resources notwithstanding).

** Royal convoy frigates have darker hulls and an inverted color scheme on their sails for ease of identification.


Added DiffLines:

* CutscenePowerToTheMax: One cutscene later in the campaign shows some Royal Navy frigates firing a mortar barrage at a French armada. Frigates in normal gameplay don't carry mortars.

Added DiffLines:

* EyeScream: The most common kill animation for ground-bound Stalkers revolves around Shay brutally stabbing both his Hidden Blades in their eyes one after the other, accompanied by a SickeningCrunch each time.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: The Templar Enforcer outfit you get for completing all Assassin interceptions looks unspeakably awesome. It also has the hidden effect of buffing Shay's Stalker detection range. This may sound helpful, but it only makes the whispering sound kick in sooner and the detection meter fill up quicker and from a longer distance, which ironically makes it a lot more difficult to pinpoint the Stalker's actual location.


* GuideDangIt: Most of the outfits you unlock by completing side activity sets have unique abilities, but the game doesn't bother to mention this anywhere. The Templar Armor for instance offers increased resistance against ranged attacks, the Native Armor protects against melee hits, the Templar Enforcer outfit makes detecting Stalkers easier, the Hunter outfit gives better stealth while hunting animals, and the [=UPlay=]-exclusive Assassin Killer outfit always has Shay's gas mask up and ready.

** The devs apparently counted on everyone who plays ''Rogue'' to have played ''Black Flag'' beforehand, seeing how they omit some crucial gameplay hints, like how to deal with rogue waves in the North Atlantic.
