I'm on sequence 5 "The Hard Way", can't get past the tutorial stage where you have to shoot the powder keg with the swivel guns. The targeting reticule is quite a bit below where it should be and since you can only move it left/right and not up/down this prevents me from progressing past the tutorial. Anyone had the same experience/found a fix for it? Could also use a save game thats saved up to right after the tutorial, really just need to progress past this swivel gun bs.

had the same Problem back on xbox 360 ... if i remember correctly you have to get the reticule as Close as possible.. the waves will push the ship into the right direction - havnt reached this Point on PC yet, so just guessing

Pretty positive its a bug, the reticule doesnt even come close to lining up with the white circle. I've sat there for awhile trying to get it up there but nope, nothing.

Noone is attacking ubisoft, the game not letting me progress must be in their level design if its "imaginary" as you say. You should get better at trolling or bring something constructive to the table.

I can confirm this bug. It is game breaking at the moment, since you can't progress any further without hitting the target.

I have tried game restarts, memory restarts, going back to animus and even playing the memory again from the start differently to try and skip the bugged swivel gun problem.
I also tried just spamming the swivels randomly without aiming in the hopes of hitting the target, but didn't work.
I haven't been able to get around the bug with anything I can think of.

Wonder who decided not to add the capability to aim up and down with the swivel guns...

So here's hoping that Ubisoft will fix the bug ASAP.

Fixed, if youre running a multi-monitor setup, try and run the game on one monitor. Switched to a one monitor resolution and it worked for me.

YAY FINALLY. I run eyefinity 3x1. Fixed with moving down to single monitor resolution. (eyefinity doesnt yet work with ac3 though)

Confirmed. If you have Eyefinity setup you need to drop down to single monitor resolution to get past the swivel gun part.
Too bad that AC 3 still doesn't have working eyefinity though.

You are probably too far away, get close and once you have it lined up it should automatically go up/down as needed.
