Assassin's Creed 3 – Naval Mission: The Rescue

Optional Objectives:
Limit damage from Rogue Waves to 25%
Make no more than 2 missed shots
Destroy 2 frigates by firing at their Weak Points

This mission starts with Connor needing to climb to the top of the mast. Just follow the Waypoints and it will be a very straight forward run up to the top. From there just head back to the wheel and it is time to deal with the Randolph. Start toward the marker and sail. Once you get between the islands you will have a lot of consistent rogue winds to deal with. You can call for Full sail but never more than a few seconds of it else the Aquila will start smashing into rocks. Use Half Sail to correct for this. Alternate as best you can.

The first optional objective comes into effect here. Once you get clear of the islands you have a rogue wave coming in. Hit cover when prompted then resume your chase toward the merchant vessel. Wait until the prompt each time on your run toward the merchant ship to avoid taking whatever damage you can from the waves.

When the Aquila makes it over to the Merchant ship, the second optional objective is added. Use your swivels as the sea is too choppy for a broadside right now. Just fight at each twice to sink them. Once they go down it is time to chase down Biddle.

After a few more rogue waves you have 2 frigates to deal with. This is where the final optional objective comes into play. Carefully timed broadsides will reveal their weak points and help you bring a swift end to this encounter.
