Distinct possibility since historically nobody knows who shot that shot and we are supposed to be at the Battles of Lexington and Concord in the game. Historically, the Minutemen were a bunch of nervous farmers holding a line against a line of battle hardened British regular line infantry, so they think it was the less disciplined Minutemen that fired first out of nervousness. But, it could have been an Assassin hiding in the woods and firing a shot just trying to provoke both sides into firing.

It was stated somewhere that Bunker Hill would be in the game as well.

I hope that Connor doesn't intentionally provoke the fighting that kicked off the American Revolution. I would find it more entertaining if it was something more like a Templar shooting at Connor, or Connor shooting at one of his targets while the two armies are in their stand off that ends up being the first shot that gets the fighting started. Something humorous showing that it was this completely separate event that ended up anonymously impacting history in a major way.

I thought the 'Shot Heard Around the World' was the one that killed Franz Ferdinand and started the first World War?

Wiki

The "Shot heard 'round the world" is a phrase that has come to represent several historical incidents. The line is originally from the opening stanza of Ralph Waldo Emerson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ralph_Waldo_Emerson)'s "Concord Hymn (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concord_Hymn)" (1837), and referred to the beginning of the American Revolutionary War (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Revolutionary_War). This 1775 proverbial first shot was fired during an armed stand-off between British forces and local militia in Lexington (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lexington,_Massachusetts), escalating into engagements at theOld North Bridge (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_North_Bridge) in the battles of Lexington and Concord (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battles_of_Lexington_and_Concord).
Later, in Europe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europe) and the Commonwealth of Nations (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commonwealth_of_Nations), the phrase became synonymous with the shot that killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archduke_Franz_Ferdinand_of_Austria) and plunged Europe into World War I (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_I). Since then, the phrase has also been used to allude to the importance of single actions in sporting and other cultural and social events.

That sounds perfect, and it would really fit with the AC series.

AC3 Site- IGNITE THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

Connor: Well, if I shoot in this general direction like so...
*pulls trigger*
... I ignite a revolutionary war.

*watches as people shoot at each other*

not only does the gunfire have to be loud like the OP says, but they need to fix that stupid problem with guards not noticing the hidden gun firing in ACR. Honestly, if Connor shoots his gun at all guards should be looking for the person who shot the gun and npcs should point him out.

You can have my gun when you pry it from my paranoid, mentally disturbed, physically-abusive, cold, dead hand.

I think this is kind of neat. Really, when you think about it (thought I know a lot of the worlds people would disagree to some degree), it's really mission friendly for Connor to start the revolution. Think about it? If your Brotherhood is all about establishing liberty,... why wouldn't you try to help build and shape a country based soley on granting liberty to it's citizens? It would make an entire country a safe haven, and litterally start a terf war. Think about it, the Templars would have to fight to have any sort of a presence in America, much like the Assassins had to fight to maintain a presence in the rest of the world. This is perfect. Plus it could help inspire the rest of the world to rally around the Assassins.
