Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag [cheats]
The following glitch can be done at any point once you have access to the specified sequence and memory. You can get approximately 35,000 R every seven minutes using this glitch and the money earned can be used to easily buy ALL the weapons and gear in the game. Watch the video below to see how it is performed.
If you are going up against big ships (like frigates), position your ship near your target and then swim to the ship to take the crew out in close quarters combat. When you've done that, swim back to the Jackdaw and then hit each ship with one broadside. You immediately win the boarding sequence that follows, without having to go into heavy fighting.
Infinite Money (Exploit)
In Sequence 2: Memory 3, you'll encounter an optional objective requiring you to pickpocket all Templars. There are three of them in the area, which follows shortly after a checkpoint. You can pick their pockets, then chose the option to "Reload Last Checkpoint." When you do, you'll find that the money you pocketed remains in your possession. You can repeat the process as often as you like before continuing the mission, and you can also come back to the mission later in the game if you wish. It's possible to earn 35,000R after around 7 minutes of effort. This exploit may soon be patched, so you'll want to play using the game's initial version if that proves to be the case.

The IT Crowd
If you go to the map near the entrance to the modern-day Abstergo offices, you can overhear two co-workers talking about Chicago. If you wait a minute or two, they will begin talking about John from IT. The male worker comments that whenever he requests help, John replies smugly with "Have you tried turning it off and on again?" That appears to be a reference to the popular British comedy, "The IT Crowd."
Hunt a Killer Whale (Killer Killer Achievement)
It is advised that you purchase plenty of Harpoon upgrades before starting this event as the extra armour, harpoon storage and strength will make hunting wales easier. Find a Killer Whale hunting location (one can be found at the coordinates: 537, 340 on the world map) and sail until a deck hand announces that prey can be seen. When the prompt button appears Kenway will be sent out to hunt the killer whale. Peg the whale with a harpoon so you follow it but be careful when it dives underwater because when it reappears it will charge the boat. If you do not hit it with a harpoon when it charges the boat you will take some damage. When you have depleted the whales health bar (top left corner of the screen) the event has been completed and you will have earned the Killer Killer
