Which ones guys?

Not pre-order stuff as a few cant get that, but DLC is ok, in game stuff etc. Which is the best combo?

Depends on your playstyle.

I prefer the golden flintlocks and pirate scimitars. While swords are slower that most other sets the 5 damage is devastating.

Golden Flintlock Pistols (Complete All Naval Contracts)

Pistol Swords (Complete All Assassin Contracts), or Officer's Rapiers which can be bought.

Since Pistol Swords have different animations, I'd use those if the normal sword animations don't look good to you... or something. I've heard from some people that they don't like the sword animations, so pistol swords could fix that.

My salt key bank contract is glitched so I can't get the pistol swords until they patch it :(

^ argh bugger true, mine is too.

But Ive heard the Scots Broadswords are good too, Ed in his combo also punches with them which is sorta cool

Personally, I will be looking for the Rapier swords -like the French court swords- and the pistols with the "leanest" and most elegant design.

Anybody know the stats for the Silver Flintlock pistols from gamestop? I have it preordered there and I already hate the look of the Golden Flintlocks. Too "blingy".

Am I the only one who thinks that the golden pistols are as ugly as **** and dont fit on any of his outfits?

Oh, they certainly don't fit at all.

But they are the best guns, so.. Yeah.

Super ugly. That's why I want to know the stats of the Silver Flintlocks. They look alright from what I've seen in the gamestop pictures.

Will turn my PS3 on and check. I have all the DLC/Bonus stuff.

Edit: They are actually called "Captain Morgan's Pistols" in-game, and they are 3/1/3

And so is Captain Drake's:

Awww they're not very good... :/ Guess I'll just use those ones that are 3/3/3. Or maybe the cannon ones if they look better than I think they do. I don't love the idea of every enemy dying in one shot to those golden ones anyways, it'll just be boring like in ac3 where you could have 4 shots, each that one shot every enemy.

I hate how they made the preorder bonus pistols so weak. Thought you would be getting something exclusive and cool but once you get it, you don't want to equip a weak pistol. At least make it equally powerful as the most powerful pistol or second to most powerful. That way we can choose to equip a cool looking pistol that fits our style but won't sacrifice power.

yeah atm I use the cannon pistols, they seem ok. Cant really use when boarding other vessels as theres just too much going down on deck, you pull them, aim, and by the time you fire the *******s moved or being attacked by your men and/or is slashing away at you.. GARRR! :mad:

Yeah, like in AC III! The pre-order weapons were the best by stats! Now I redeemed the code for AC IV dlc I look at it and it's weaker then the first buyable weapon! Ridicoulus!!! :-)

Yip they need to patch the weapons srsly! The pistols are all so simalar, and the swords while we're at it.. is crazy. At least give certain pistols much longer range than others, just mix the numbers up more and make it notciable.

What do people feel about the blow-pipe? Worth it?

I use the berserk and sleep darts all the time in-mission; the berserk ones mainly just to watch the fun. :D

Sleep when I want to get past one or two guards. Berserk when there is a group of enemies with more than one brutes, it creates a good distraction. Both are good and it really depends on the situation. If I want to get away fast then sleep darts are the best option, if I want to kill a sniper type guards then I use berserk because it will eventually kill him.
