Assassin's Creed: Pirates Achievements

The Seeker

Reach 100% sync on Grand Bahama  

These achievements require that you obtain 100% sync in the first five regions of the game (not including the tutorial area): Scorpion Reef, Bahia de Guadiana, Los Matires, La Habana, and Grand Bahama. In order to obtain 100% sync in each region, you must do the following:

  1. Complete the story mission in the region: Go to the yellow exclamation point marker and complete the story mission. There is one per region.
  2. Complete all Race and Assassination missions in the region, including all of the secondary objectives: Each region has a total of four race and four assassination side missions to complete. You must not only finish them, but complete all three secondary objectives within each mission to earn 100% sync. The secondary objectives DO NOT need to completed in a single run of the mission. They can each be obtained separately and it will still count. For Race missions, it is best to use the Wanderer ship with fully upgraded speed. For the Assassinations, use your most powerful (highest attack) ship that you own. If needed, equip perks to help with the secondary objectives if you get stuck, such as those for increasing your ship's speed or handling, or making your attacks stronger.
  3. Find all treasure chests in the region: To find a treasure chest, you must first obtain a treasure map. These drop randomly in crates after defeating both enemy and cargo ships (red and yellow ships). Later in the game, at a random level, you will obtain a Hull perk that increases the drop rate for treasure maps, called Treasure Bounty. Make sure to fully upgrade this perk and equip it to speed up the process (it increases drop rate by 30%). Otherwise, treasure maps will drop very infrequently. Once you have a treasure map, a location will be shown on your map for the treasure chest. Go there and pull out your looking glass. Spin around until you see the chest and open it.
  4. Save all shipwrecked fisherman in the region: Shipwrecked fisherman are a dynamic event in the game. While you are cruising around in your ship (either in immersive mode or map mode), a pop-up will come on screen about a fisherman to save. Be very quick, as there is a very unforgiving time limit. Go to the location and find the fisherman in the water. Use the icon and your map to locate him. Tap on him to save him once close enough. These events are random. However, later in the game, at a random level, you will obtain a Sail perk that increases the rate of dynamic events, called Dynamic Events (this is the perk name too). Make sure to fully upgrade this perk and equip it to speed up the process (it increases the rate by 30%). Otherwise, these events will appear very infrequently. There is also a perk that will increase to time limit to save the fisherman, called Stay Alive, which can be very helpful if you are having trouble.
  5. Unlock all Viewpoints in the Region: These are marked on your map by a bird symbol. Go to the location and battle a ship to unlock a lighthouse, which clears a large area of the fog for you and opens up a fast travel location. There are six of these in each region.
  6. Find all Lost Files in the Region: Lost files are secret messages in a bottle and act as a the collectible in the game. They are always found near land, floating on the surface of the water. You must tap on them to collect them when close enough to make their icon appear. They only appear on your mini-map in immersive mode, and only if you are close enough. Since they only appear near land, use map mode to navigate your ship to an area of land. Then switch to immersive mode. Look for the Lost File symbol on the mini-map (looks like a bottle). If you see one, head there in immersive mode to collect it. If not, use map mode to find another area of land and try again. Each region is not that large and the distance from which the Lost Files will appear on your mini-map is forgiving, so these are easy to locate. Just keep track of which land areas you have already checked. Later in the game, at a random level, you will obtain a Sail perk that increases the range you can see the Lost Files, called File Seeker. Make sure to fully upgrade this perk and equip it to speed up the process (it increases view range by 30%). There are Five Lost Files in each region.
  7. Complete All Encounters with the Slavers: Slaver encounters are a dynamic event in the game. While you are cruising around in your ship (either in immersive mode or map mode), a pop-up will come on screen about engaging a slaver ship. Be quick, as there is a time limit. Go to the location and engage the slaver ship. Use the icon and your map to locate it. These events are random. However, later in the game, at a random level, you will obtain a Sail perk that increases the rate of dynamic events, called Dynamic Events (this is the perk name too). Make sure to fully upgrade this perk and equip it to speed up the process (it increases rate by 30%). Once you engage the ship, use the gun to precisely hit all the green bullseyes, being careful not to hit any other part. Once you hit them all, quickly collect all the slaves that jumped overboard to save them. Maneuver your ship and tap on them to collect them. There are usually about five to ten slaves that need pulled from the water. Use your map and be quick, as there is a time limit. NOTE: You won't find any slavers in the first region until you complete Chapter Two of the story, which first introduces slavers.

Once you do all of the above for a given region, the achievement will pop. You can check your progress towards each of the requirements from the Profile screen, accessed by tapping the icon of Alonzo's head, located in the top left corner of the Pause Menu. Do this while you are in the region you want to check. There is no incentive to 100% sync the regions that do not have achievements tied to them. Also note that the Mystery Missions (marked with a question mark on the map) and their secondary objectives are not required in any way; they can be skipped entirely.

For the first three levels you can do the races with the Wanderer. But even fully upgraded and with extra boost, speed etc. perks the Wanderer isn't remotely good enough in the windows 8 version. You really need the ship with 5 speed.

Great guide, although I have to respectfully disagree with Comment #1 by B0seiju - not only did I complete all races with the Wanderer (with max upgrades), I did so with relative ease.

That being said, you'll need something a little more balanced in terms of power to complete the '?' sidequests in the allotted time.

I'm playing on Windows 10.
