The optimal way for an assassin to dispatch his foe is always going to be a cannonball. That's just a fact. But sometimes, you find yourself on the open sea, and the waves are crashing onto the boat, and everything's turning topsy-turvy, and you're going to think to yourself, "Yar, me thinks somthin' practical wou'd do just the trick to fell yon' villain. Yarrr, this cannon is heavy. Yarrrrr."
Luckily, in Assassin's Creed 4, you'll have just an option. In advance of Ubisoft's anticipated buccaneer adventure, we caught up with Edward "Blackbeard" Thatch (or at least, a man working for Ubisoft who claims to be just such a figure), to get the skivvy on a number of weapons that will appear in the game.
