Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag templar key locations guide

The Assassin's Creed games have always been packed with collectibles to find and unlock, and the latest entry is no exception. We loved Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag in our review, so we want to help you get the most out of your Caribbean experience.

There are five Templar Keys to find in the game, and each is unlocked via a series of Templar Hunt side missions. Find them all, and you'll unlock a nifty set of armor that greatly reduces all damage you take. Pretty cool, eh? You'll receive the first one during the story, so follow along to find the other four. 

The first three keys are on page two; the last two are on page three!

Want to track down all the Mayan Stelae in Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag? We've got a guide for that too!

    i have completed the story. and all the Templar and assassin missions. yet I don't have the 5th key. where do I get it?

    You might have it already from the first templar you killed! That's why there are 4 with walkthough and one is obtained in the story.

    Meet Opia on the docks at Grand Cayman (397,324) [not Cayman Sound]. Once you complete that mission meet her on the beach at Pinos Isle (335,469). There you will get the key.

    Okay so I'm on "Theif in the market" and it says to locate the pickpocket, which I do. Then the game guide says he will run and I have to chase him....he's not running he's just standing there next to the guard he's supposed to pickpocket. I've died and tried to start the mission over again but it still doesn't work. Any pointers?

    Basically run up him as quick as possible and kill him with hidden blades

    Okay, so I don't know if you can help. But I have found two other templar keys and I keep returning to Havana. Except it says Rhona is 200m underground? I see screenshots of her standing where I am standing now, but on my screen it says she is 214m under me? Help??

    That can only be a glitch, as there's no underground in Havana. Not sure what else to tell you :(

    Great guide but I think its Great Inagua and not Iguana. lol.
  • Tony Wilson - November 11, 2013 12:18 p.m.

    Somehow the island seems less cool now lol. Fixed. Thanks, comicgeek!

    Haha exactly. I also read it as Iguana while I was playing. Much easier to read. Thanks for the guides!
