Screen Shot 2013-10-17 at 11.34.37 PM

The Assassin’s Creed series has always been loosely based on history. With that being said Ubisoft reached out to Mike Loades for his consultation on Assassin’s Creed IV’s weapons. Loades is a weapons expert with extensive knowledge on the killing tools used during the Golden Age of pirates. At the San Diego Comic-Con Ubisoft brought Edward Kenway’s ship to show off, and as an added bonus Mike provided the crowd with a live demonstration of some the weapons found in the game, and now you too can see his presentation.

The main focus of the video is to provide you with the correct weapons to use when preparing to board a ship, just in case you ever wanted to practice your pirating skills. Head on down below to check out the video to get schooled on what weapons to use for raids, and how to make them work to your advantage.

Don’t forget to set sails with Kenway on October 29, 2013, which is when Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag releases for the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U.
