Did You Get Your Hands on the Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Remaster?
Recently, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue received a remaster. As a result, now is the right time for interested individuals to check out the Seven Years’ War installment of the action-adventure franchise.
What Are Some Tips to Keep in Mind?
Here are some useful tips for Assassin’s Creed: Rogue:
You’ll Want to Board Ships
In Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, the single best method for earning more money is boarding ships. Certainly, interested individuals can earn resources by sinking ships, but since that yields just half of their cargo, boarding those same ships is the much superior option in spite of the additional expenditure of time and effort. Besides items that can be sold for a handsome profit, boarding ships will produce other resources such as wood, cloth, stone, and metal that can be put to excellent uses as well.
You Need to Spend Money to Make Money
Speaking of which, spending money to make money is tried and true advice in a wide range of contexts. In Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, a more capable ship makes for a much easier time boarding ships, thus enabling the player to earn money and other useful resources faster than otherwise possible. As a result, it makes sense for the player to pour their hard-earned money and other resources into improving their ship so that it will become a true terror of the sea. For that matter, interested individuals will want to pour their money and other resources into other upgrades as well, which will make their play-through that much easier for them.
Consider Lateral Solutions
It is perfectly possible to brute force most encounters in Assassin’s Creed: Rogue. However, this tends to be a suboptimal solution, not least because most players can handle no more than a limited number of enemies before they start making serious mistakes. Something that can spiral when those initial mistakes cause said individual to become flustered, thus increasing their chances of making more. Rather than brute force encounters, it might be better for the player to consider lateral solutions. Generally speaking, this process means scouting out the location, finding the target that must be interacted with in order to “win” the encounter, and then finding the various obstacles standing in their way before coming up with a strategy for either eliminating them or bypassing them.
Sometimes, this means using stealth to whittle down the number of enemies at the scene until the encounter becomes manageable for the player using a brute force approach. Other times, this means finding a path with minimal fighting that will still lead to what they are looking for, which can be worthwhile because most Assassin’s Creed enemies aren’t famous for giving great loot. Whatever the case, a little planning can make a big difference in how an encounter will proceed from start to finish.
Infinite money and resources
Go to any outpost that has two or more key holders. Kill all key holders except one. Then, loot the warehouses. Once you are finished looting the warehouses, press Start, select the “Shay Upgrades” option, then back out of the menus to save your inventory. Next, find an enemy, and let him kill you to start back at the beginning of the outpost with all the stolen resources from the warehouses. Repeat this as many times as desired.

Broken computer locations
Exit the Animus, then search for the 20 broken computers. Fixing them will reward you with background files on various characters, factions, or events in the world. Repairing some of these computers is required to progress the storyline. In the repair sequence, you must light up sections of a sphere. Use the outer circles to move lines of power around until every section of the sphere gets a single point of power.
The computers that require repair are highlighted on game map. However, most of them are behind security doors that will only unlock after progressing far enough in the storyline. Note: You cannot repair the computers after the game is completed.

Assassin Interception missions
Successfully complete all Assassin Interception missions to get the Templar Enforcer armor, which allows Shay to mark Stalkers from a greater distance. To start an Assassin Interception mission, look on the map for an Assassin Intercept quest icon. This indicates the location of a pigeon that is used by the Assassins to communicate. Pigeons are usually found perched high on buildings. Climb up and slowly make your way towards the bird. Moving too fast will cause the pigeon to fly away. Once close enough, follow the onscreen prompts to capture the bird. If you fail, the pigeon may fly off. If that happens, you can either chase it to where it lands or retry later.
After capturing the pigeon, you will know where the Assassins plan on attacking their target. Quickly travel to that area. The Assassins will be hiding in multiple locations around the victim. Each location will be marked by a circle to indicate their presence. You can find the Assassins using Eagle Vision or by looking for someone dressed in yellow. A person in a yellow outfit that does not appear on the mini-map without the use of Eagle Vision is a confirmed Assassin. You must kill a certain number of Assassins before the timer expires. Kill all Assassins to get a bonus, and make the next part easier. After the timer ends, the Assassins will attack the target, usually from rooftops or by sprinting through the streets.
Watch both of those areas and the mini-map to determine which direction the next attack is coming from. The victims are weak and will not survive for too long. Instead of climbing up to the rooftops to fight, shoot Assassins from below. You will successfully complete the mission once all Assassins are killed.
