Assassin’s Creed 4 Hunting Tips

  • You can reset animal’s spawn location by simple using nearby fast travel
  • Animals tend to respawn faster when nearby animals are defeated
  • Farming white jaguar pelt (600R) is possible when using fast travel. The animal respawns every time you use nearby fast travel, and you can quickly walk back to spawn location.
  • Lurking animals from bushes and whistling will make them come closer, then you can use surprise attack tactic
  • Animals like jaguars, white jaguars, crocodiles will attack you
  • Probably the best way to kill an animal is from the distance with silent sleep darts. You can craft darts easily with one animal’s bone

    Just to clarify, a killer whale is not a shark, you should change the name in this guide, and maybe learn some basic biology while you’re at it.
