Assassin’s Creed 4 Shady Business gameplay reveals glitches

By Peter Chubb - Nov 1, 2013

When playing any Assassin’s Creed game there are plenty of contract missions to choose from, and Black Flag is no exception. We have come across Assassin’s Creed 4 Shady Business, which is the second of two Salt Key Bank contracts. If you like a bit of sea warfare, then you will love this one.

However, before you get started, we must warn that there are a few glitches, one of which is no target appearing on the map, yet the mission remains active. This is one of several glitches, which have been reported to the development team. It is a huge problem, so maybe there should have been a day one patch for AC4 after all?

Don’t let that put you off though, as there is still some great fun to be had with the contract, especially if you like to show off your skills on the high seas. The video we have for you below is the Assassin’s Creed 4 Assassin Contract – Shady Business gameplay walkthrough and the first thing you need to know is that it will be available from the pigeon coop in Salt Key Ban.

The contract requires you to take out a slave trader, which will no doubt bring enjoyment to most of you, as this was a bad part of our history. Finding him will be difficult because he will be at sea and you need to make certain your ship is seaworthy.

While the gameplay video below does not offer you a great deal of advice in how to make it easier to find your target, we will tell you that while you can fight other enemies, you should refrain from doing so, as it is better to stay hidden.

    I’m having te same problem man, hopefully the fix tis, or they should allow you to reset the sidemissions, like this one. Just like how you can restart, replay the main story.

        They DID fix the issue with Connor in 3 where he wouldn’t put his hood back on and we had to look at the back of his gross haircut post main story – I was one who complained on the Ubi Forums, so make a complaint there and with enough support you will get a patch.
