Life as a captain ain’t always easy, and that’s especially true when you’re a pirate Assassin. Not only do you have a crew to take care of, but you’ve got an entire fleet at your command. In Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, you can build your fleet with captured ships, then send them out in a robust minigame that’ll earn you currency and other rewards – such as Treasure Maps, customization options for the Jackdaw and even the Officer’s Outfit for Edward. It’s a fun diversion that’s also available to play via the companion app – but there are some complexities to it. We’ve seen your questions, and we’ve assembled answers to some of the most common ones. Let us know in the comments below if you have any other questions, or share your tips with the other captains out there!

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag - Kenway's Fleet FAQs

What is Kenway’s Fleet?

Kenway’s Fleet is a metagame you can access either through Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag or the companion app. Acquire ships through the boarding process and send them to join your fleet. From there you can send them on trading missions to gain a little extra cash.

What is the “odds of success” meter I see before every mission?

It’s exactly what it sounds like. You’ll need to make sure you have the right ship for the job. Sometimes a ship will be too weak to make a journey and sometimes it just won’t have enough cargo space. Obviously you want to send ships with a high probability of success.

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag - Kenway's Fleet FAQ

How can I increase my odds of success?

You can select a stronger ship or you can take part in a battle to make a route less hazardous. In these battles you’ll select up to three ships from your fleet (they will not be available for battle if they are on a trading mission) to take on a group of enemy ships. The difficulty of these fights will depend on how dangerous the route is. Sometimes you’ll be up against tiny gunboats and sometimes it’ll be brigs and frigates.

How do I attack? Does it work like the naval battles in the main game?

No, it’s much more simplified. There’s no actual sailing involved. You square off and have two attack options. You can wait for your ship’s weapon meter to fill, at which point it will automatically fire, or you can trigger a fire barrel. While you can always use the ships’ main weapons, it is possible to run out of fire barrels.

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag - Kenway's Fleet FAQ

How do I get more fire barrels if I run out?

In order to restock your fire barrels you’ll need to either take part in more dangerous battles (this will sometimes yield fire barrels as a reward) or you can help your friends out in their own trading missions.

How can I help my friends?

You can find your friends through the metagame menu and you’ll receive the option to either escort them or help speed up their journey. They can do the same for you in return.

What about resources required for missions: How do I get those?

These are also earned by taking part in battles. Clear out a dangerous route and you’ll acquire different resources that you can use to complete missions.

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag - Kenway's Fleet FAQ

Some of these trading missions take a pretty long time. Will they only progress if I am actively playing Black Flag?

No. Because Kenway’s Fleet is attached to your Uplay account it will continue to update in real time even when you’re not playing.

Can Kenway’s Fleet be played even if I don’t have an Internet connection?

Edward’s Fleet is an online feature that allows a single player to interact with multiple players on consoles or via the game’s companion app. The feature requires an Internet connection to use. The real time updates also require this connection.

Is it possible to complete the single-player campaign without the fleet feature?

Yes.

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag - Kenway's Fleet FAQ

How does Kenway’s Fleet work on the companion app?

It works the same way it does in the game. The upside to the companion app is you can access your fleet anywhere you have wifi. Check on missions while you’re on your lunch break at work or maybe during a commute. Collect your rewards and send ships back out for more battles or trades.

What devices support the companion app?

This is the complete list of currently compatible devices:

iPad 2,3,4; iPad mini; Android; Google Nexus 7; Google Nexus 7 (2013); Google Nexus 10; Galaxy Note 10.1 N8010; Sony Xperia Tablet Z; Asus Transformer TF700 Pad Infinity; Samsung P3100 Galaxy Tab 2; Samsung GT-P5110 Galaxy Tab 2 10.1; Asus Transformer Prime TF201

Where can I find the companion app?

iTunes | Google Play

Assassin's Creed® IV Black Flag

Release date — October 29, 2013
Developer — Ubisoft Montreal
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, a young British man with a thirst for danger and adventure, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period of time later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates.

    Please add Motorola Atrix HD to the list of compatible devices. I would like to get the companion App, but my device is not supported :(. And Even when I upgrade, I am not looking at any of the devices currently supported. Thanks
    • Andy Stetson on November 21, 2013
      Check again, they released an update today that is compatible with my LG G2 and my Galaxy SIII. Whole new layout for phones.
  2. Joe S. on November 20, 2013
    Why was the companion app not created for the phones like the Samsung Galaxy S4 or tablets like the Kindle Fire.
    • Andy Stetson on November 21, 2013
      Check again, they released an update today that is compatible with my LG G2 and my Galaxy SIII. Whole new layout for phones. It can also be sideloaded onto the Kindle Fire until it is put on the Amazon App Store.
      • pml on November 25, 2013
        Do you know this for sure? I side loaded my Fire yesterday and it didn't work, although maybe it's not compatible with the HDX yet.
  3. Dave on November 20, 2013
    Are those "compatible devices" only tablets? What about mobiles? I'm about to buy a HTC One soon and would like to be able to use the app if possible.
    • Andy Stetson on November 21, 2013
      Check again, they released an update today that is compatible with my LG G2 and my Galaxy SIII. Whole new layout for phones. Should be fine for your HTC One.
  4. Ryan on November 20, 2013
    Are there certain fleet missions I need to complete to get 100% completion?
    • Hamzah H on November 20, 2013
      I believe that a few of the buried chests are acquired through Kenway's Fleet but I'm not sure
      • Anne Lewis | Communications Associate Author on November 21, 2013
        There are a couple of Treasure Maps that can be acquired through Kenway's Fleet. Most of them lead to money rewards, but one of them leads to Elite Fire Barrel Storage plans.
        • Exray Altzmay on December 4, 2013
          Well that certainly explains why I can't fully upgrade my single player Jackdaw. Foul play I call. Your blade is poorly forged.
  5. Justin on November 20, 2013
    Yeah it would be nice if I could do this, but sadly I can't because the Ubisoft servers are never working.
  6. Cassie Mercer on November 21, 2013
    Same here, its a shame I had to skip this game because of this online non-sense. Who knows, maybe someday Ubi will come to their senses and patch it to be playable offline and I might pick it up again. Not only requiring a connection is a terrible thing, they have managed to make it even worse by providing unimaginably bad servers and customer support.
  7. Andy Stetson on November 21, 2013
    Is anyone else having problems accessing Kenway's Fleet through the app? Keep getting server issues (have a ticket in to Ubi Support, but want to see if i'm the only one).
  8. Jim Vega on November 21, 2013
    Not the only one, doesn't matter online or offline, damned thing is unplayable. Why on earth would you start stealing from single player ubi? Leave the minigames alone as a part of single player offline.
    • EA on November 22, 2013
      While I agree that the minigames like this should be offline...did you play Brotherhood? They put investments, arguably a significant part of getting special materials and completing shop quests, only online.So it's not like there isn't a precedent.
      • Rex on December 4, 2013
        Precedent doesn't justify anything pal. That's a line sold to the plebs in the hope that they won't see BS when it's dropped on their dinner tables. The courts' interests were bought and co-opted around 100 years ago.
  9. Scott on November 23, 2013
    I'm delighted that it is now available for my Galaxy S III! I have had no problems with the online-only functionality.
  10. Lou on November 24, 2013
    How do you collect the rewards from Edward's Fleet from the captain's quarters?
    • Alex on January 8, 2014
      You just go in and it gives u it
  11. Andrew on November 24, 2013
    So I beat kenways on my first play thru of ac4, and I enjoyed how the mini game helped to propel the main game along. However I started my second play thru and I'm looking at my fleet from the previous game. How do I start kenways fleet over when I start a new game?
    • Alex on January 8, 2014
      If u find out can u tell me
  12. Patrickk on November 25, 2013
    Why can't Ubisoft make an App for the Laptop for Xbox and playstation users? If they'll do this, my fleet would be much easier!
  13. Usher on November 25, 2013
    Half way through the campaign yet not once was I able to get the fleet minigame started because of server unavailability crap. Why is such a crucial part of the game unplayable with or without a connection? Thank goodness Watch Dogs was delayed, its off my list now as I am more than 100% sure it will have similar bull crap of single player content being unplayable. Returning this game to Gamestop today and salvage what I can. Terrible Terrible thing Ubi, you've ruined a great franchise for me and kept me from trying another one.
    • Kyle on January 11, 2014
      It might actually be an internet porting issue. When I called in to customer service they said to contact my isp about port forwarding, they will probably tell you the same thing... it's really dumb. I have the ability to open those ports at home but on my college's wifi I don't have the authority to do that so... no minigame for me. At all. This is really dumb.
  14. Tounushi on November 25, 2013
    I bought this game on thursday for PC. Great game. Finally got to the point where I can try out the fleet. "Ubisoft servers are unavailable."Seems like a common bug. I have to ask, will it be sorted out?Haven't tried the app yet with my Huawei.BTW, ACInitiates doesn't accept the email I use for my Uplay account.
  15. Eldridge Caan on November 26, 2013
    Got this game as a gift with the PS4, and what a shame that next gen has started with such abysmal design choices when it comes to single player. Despite all the glorious reviews for the main campaign (which I myself quite like so far), it is just awful that there is single player content gated behind a mandatory connection. If that wasn't bad enough, the utterly poor availability of servers make a good and seemingly important chunk of the single player unplayable. Like others have said, it is highly likely that this will continue with other games on the new platforms. Trading in my copy at gamestop today for something better, not far enough into the campaign to bother with trying to play through despite the awful internet requirement.
  16. Jake on November 26, 2013
    I don't really understand why people are so pissed off about this online stuff. In no way is it mandatory. I am halfway through and haven't used the fleet at all. From what I understand you get rewards and money through it, but only a few unique things. Sure you can't get 100% completion unless your online, but you can still do 99% of the stuff. And I am playing on my PC so I don't give an s@#$ about achievements.
    • Nikos on February 10, 2014
      Agreed. Why the rants? You'd return a game with a potential for dozens of hours of gameplay because you cannot access a tiny bit of it from your TABLET while on the go? You can still play the minigame from inside the game itself, don't you know. Personally, I don't own a tablet (gasp) or even a mobile phone with front facing camera (double gasp). But even if I did and it didn't work, I wouldn't really give a damn. You can take a break from sailing, go down to your cabin and take care of your fleet. Sometimes these rants are so unbelievable that I'm starting to think they might be posted by competitors. I mean there are a ton of other valid complains to make about Ubisoft's DRM policies and Uplay (un)functionality (although it has improved lately), without ranting about such a huge game because of one tiny flaw.
  17. warmachine on November 27, 2013
    Can you take over larger ships or are you just stuck with the jackdaw once you fully customize it. I want a legendary ship being its much larger.
  18. GRIFF on November 28, 2013
    Having played through several trading routes I have picked up two Treasure Maps as prizes in the Kenway Fleet App, but for some reason I can not see them in my Treasure Map collection. Anyone know how these Maps can be accessed? They seemed to just have disappeared.
  19. Kris on December 2, 2013
    It's been out for a while and it's not compatible with anything. Why is the companion app only available for 2 phones. I have a new phone and it is not compataible and it seems like it is not compatible with anything except iPads.
  20. callum on December 2, 2013
    I have the Samsung galaxy mega which is pretty much a tablet yet the app doesn't work its not compatible please fix
  21. Kyle on December 2, 2013
    My phone is an off brand, but has the same specs as a Galaxy SIII. Why does it have to be specific to certain phone brands and models? why not a requirement on phone specs (i.e. ram/processor speed)

  24. MC on December 4, 2013
    I just love the companion!! Great way to play with someone else that can help you pointing out items/places to reach for you while you can just concentrate on what is going on in the TV (Your girlfriend will start to love AC as well :P). You don't have to always check on your map, so it helps a lot to save time. With the fleet you can collect in-game currency during the day while you're at work. This is a real companion app! Good job!
    • Rex on December 4, 2013
      Did you get a promotion for that BJ? You - are - pathetic.
  25. Rex Maltz on December 4, 2013
    Good god! Do you think that continuously cramming the "it's a good thing" line will sell anyone with taste buds? Crap is crap and positive spin is deception. Any single player aspect locked behind online schemes is disgusting trash with an ulterior profit motive. Know this: we - are - not - fooled

    I just got my HP 7" Tablet Intel Atom Processor with 8GB Memory featuring Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean" and when i went to the google play store not only my phone which runs "ice cream sandwich" but my new tablet is not compatible and I'm like what the hell?, first i heard it couldn't run on phones so i descended to get a tablet which i was planing on getting one anyways so now im here pissed off that i cant use this damn app on it and other people can. If this is app is only for certain tablets then list them so other people dont get pissed off like myself. Hell Quantic Dream's Companion app for BEYOND: Two Souls worked on my phone and i bet it works on my new tablet too. I dont like Turning on my system to check my fleet every few hours its annoying. This better not happen with watch dogs and Division

  30. Spoorthy on December 13, 2013
    Hey i am playing this game with one ubisoft account.. One of my friend too plays with the same account but is little slow in main mission.. I got access to kenways fleet couple of days back and i have 8ships in my fleet. My friend just got access to the fleet but he has all the ships which i captured earlier.. Is this a bug or is this the way its supposed to be.. Coz i want my ships to be in my fleet only. Any help is appreciated
  31. Raxus07 on December 14, 2013
    What can you do with the resources you gain in the companion app? such as Wine, seeds etc.
  32. Ludvig on December 15, 2013
    WTF!? When the first time i can acces the fleet map nothing comes up? I can't exit i can't do shit. the only thing i can do is moving the mouse and pressing alt+tab out of there. Please f*cking help.
  33. hello on December 16, 2013
    Im able to access my fleet like buy docks amd such..but cant make them do mini missions need help plz..any ideas
  34. John on December 17, 2013
    Due to the lack of support, and communication, this will be the last Ubisoft product I pre-order. Once it has been out for awhile and the bugs and glitches and other issues have been ironed out, there will be a price-drop, at which point I'll make my purchase.Thanks for your hard work Ubisoft, shame that hard work has to be undermined by a serious lack of consumer support and communication.
  35. Kyle on December 18, 2013
    How come every time i do the "Great Reputation 1" mission to acquire the Officer robes it doesn't give them to me. i have played the mission twice now but still no outfit?

    Thanks, I Didn't Know How To Get More Ships Into Edward Kenway's Fleet.
    • Andrew Jones on January 1, 2014
      Once you get to around mission 3/4, once you capture a ship it will give you an additional option, instead of lower wanted or fix the jackdaw it will say send to kenways fleet. Keep an eye out for good ships too, when you use the spyglass it tells you what they have on board, but also class(schooner,brig etc) look for ones which have coloured level, these are better.
  37. DAZ on December 21, 2013
    FIXED MINE I was like others, constant messages of error couldn't connect to servers, but i could sign in on pc/laptop. PS3 & PS4 versions wouldn't connect, So after going around in circles i went and put Assassins Creed 3 in my Ps3 and went to uplay which logged in, i then went to account info and noticed my email was undefined, it wouldn't let me use my primary email because i had used it for my original Ubi account. so i gave it my Gmail email and now everything on all formats are working, So to cut to a short version, you cant have the same email for Ubi & Uplay accounts.
  38. Tony on December 26, 2013
    Stuck in 99% :( missing buried chest. 12 area at kenway's fleets are open All icons in the map are gold. Am I missing something, I double checked all the maps for possible missed bured treasure chest and hopeless. Does community chalenges give me a treasure map? Please help. Thx.
  39. ryan on January 1, 2014
    I try to access kenways fleet for the first time. and it says i still have to activate my uplay passport. iv done this and downloaded it. But it still wont let me acces it. Any ideas?
  40. Thom on January 3, 2014
    I was wondering if on a mission lets say your ship, a frigate, has about 35% health and the odds of success on this mission says 100% and the passage is cleared safe. Does that guarentee me that my ship will make it back with out being destroyed/undamaged? Thanks.
    • Anne Lewis | Communications Associate Author on January 3, 2014
      Yeah, your ship will survive. I've done that a few times. It may not come back undamaged, though.

  42. David Stanley on January 6, 2014
    I only have access to one Xbox Live account, and my daughter started her campaign before I had a chance to play. She is able to access Kenway's fleet, but has no interest in doing so; when I started my game, I found I don't have the option of using Kenway's fleet. What's up with that--and we are both fairly far along in the campaign, and have totally different playing styles, so I don't want to switch accounts with her. Please Help!!!
    • Anne Lewis | Communications Associate Author on January 8, 2014
      Kenway's Fleet is tied to your Uplay account. I'm not sure why it would be showing up for her and not for you. I assume you're both playing on the same system so there shouldn't be a connection issue.
  43. Stephen Olley on January 8, 2014
    Hello to allWhen I load up Kenway's fleet on iPad it's says.. "Kenway's fleet is running on another platform and it's not and I've disconnect on iPad and in game says connection established don't know what going on plz helpThanks Stephen
  44. Robbie on January 8, 2014
    David. I do not mean to offend when I ask this but I presume you have your xbox partitioned so your daughter has one log on and you another but have you made sure that on your game you are logged on to uplay? I have not tried multiple games but I think that if, on your game, you log into a desperate uplay account to your daughter you should be able to access fleets
  45. Robbie on January 8, 2014
    Stephen. I get that error too. I access via I phone. I just wait a bit and then go back in. Usually 10-20 minutes and I can access fleets on the app again
  46. Alex on January 8, 2014
    I have two saves but it seems like they share the same fleet. Help!
    • Robbie on January 9, 2014
      Alex, as Anne has said fleets is tied to your Uplay account, not the individual game session. If both your saves are logged into the same Uplay account the fleet will be the same across the two
      • Alex on January 9, 2014
        Cheers
    • Robbie on January 10, 2014
      Hi Alex. The fleets feature runs from Uplay account. If you are logged into the same uplay account across both saves then yes, the fleets will be the same on both saves. I guess one way around it is to have two uplay accounts registered to two email addresses and switch between accounts when you loads the relevant game. Sounds complicated but only way to seperate the two saves I can see
  47. Sarah on January 9, 2014
    It's bizarre that there's no app for the Vita or PSP.
    • Sarah on January 9, 2014
      But now available for the Kindle Fire HD. Just got it from the App Store. Thanks!
  48. Ryo on January 9, 2014
    It's an improvement from the last game but making this as a mandatory online just plain stupid. Why everything have to be online from you guys? I refund my copy yesterday and bought more interesting game from other publisher when i found out this crap. What a shame. No more buying ubisoft game for me no matter how interesting the game. They will manage to ruin it anyway like capcom does.
  49. Geena Lee on January 10, 2014
    What is wrong with this minigame? I updated to the latest patch and as much as I hate leaving my console tethered to the internet, I have yet to be able to connect to anything and get started. Not only do I hate leaving my PS4 connected (auto update from Sony once bricked my PS3), it is flat out aggravating that ubi can't get their $hit right when it comes to servers. Instead of bothering with worthless DLC, ubi needs to patch the game and make the fleet offline. How many people are really using the 'friends will help me' garbage anyway? seeing that the companion app croaks on anything that isn't an iphone or an ipad.
  50. Kyle on January 11, 2014
    Honestly this whole thing is a little disappointing. In order to log into Ubisoft I have to have certain ports enabled on my connection, which I can do when I'm at home. I just brought my ps4 to college and the internet there is more closely monitored, so I can't log in to Uplay even though I can access other internet features through my ps4. I can't use the app either because it's not available on my device. If you're going to make an app for mobile, why not also have a web version I could access from my pc?
  51. Aaron on January 11, 2014
    When I take ships down they don't show up in my fleet they show up in my sons fleet. We are both playing on the same xbox but with different accounts.

  53. Mike Wand on January 14, 2014
    I was hoping to see my fleet sailing around on the water. Has anyone seen that? I don't even care about the mini game much since it was way too easy to become super rich. I go around looking for the coolest ships to add to my fleet and I think it would be cool to see them out in the "real world"
  54. Geena Lee on January 14, 2014
    Follow Sim City's example, took them six months but they did the right thing and made it playable offline. Seriously, what is your obsession with the always online non-sense? I get it you're trying something new and social in the single player part but hey, not all of us want it.
  55. Fredrik on January 16, 2014
    People keep talking about fleet being linked to uplay. Whenever I start AC4, I press square, to skip the registration. Kenways fleet still works like a charm for me.
  56. EdwardConnor on January 16, 2014
    I am on Kenway's Fleet and some trade routes are whited out and I can access them why? Anyone know?
  57. EdwardConnor on January 16, 2014
    On Kenway's fleet for some reason some trade routes are whited out and I can not access them. Anyone know why, I am on my way to getting 100% and I have one buried chest left, since I collected and found all the cadavers with maps, I am assuming its from Kenway's fleet? Any answers?
    • Alex on January 18, 2014
      You have to unlock them by using the fleet and elite fire barrels is found through the fleet
  58. johnny4323 on January 18, 2014
    First few times playing AC4 i used to skip the uplay jrgon at the start of game and cud ccess kenways fleet, then after building up my fleet tried to go back in later and cudnt, but now noticed that when turnin ps4 on i wasnt asked to skip uplay etc, so went into NOTIFICATION in ps4 menu downloaded update for the actual game THIS WAS NOT A PS4 SYSTEM UPDATE, but took over half an hr, i then registered and can now access kenways fleet with within main game and companion app on samsung galaxy s3mini which is not on list of compatible devices but of course is android, so apologies if this seems obvious and we all hav it done but just my experience with ac4 and ubi, workin well now
  59. Alexis on January 22, 2014
    I bought the physical game in Brazil but my PS account is UK. The Uplay passport code didn't work and when i followed the link from the game menu to download a new code, that wouldn't work either so therefore, i guess its not going to be possible for me to access any of these features(unless anybody knows of a way)..will this ruin the game for me? I have no interest in unlocking bonuses and extra points etc, but will not having access to this Kenways Fleet thing hinder my progress in this game? I literally just want to play through and complete the story and I'm worried that this won't be possible now.

    I have ZERO access to the Fleet missions. I can't even get into it. All I have is ships in the fleet. VERY frustrating.

    Nobody is actually saying how you send the ships out in the first place. How do you do it, there's no option?? I've got a uplay passport but when I access the fleet the only options are 'add more docks' 'salvage ship from fleet' and 'salvage for gemstones' how do you send the damn ships??? This is really frustrating as every site I visit says "send your ships to do this" HOW???

      Flip over to the Naval Map tab and select a route. Then you'll be given the option to make the route safer or send a ship out.

    How can I get more ships for ships for my fleet? I can't figure out how ..
    • Anne Lewis | Communications Associate Author on February 12, 2014
      Are you talking about in the main game or adding ships from inside the fleet interface? In the main game you just have to successfully board ships and then select the "Add Ship to Fleet" option. You can't actually find ships in the interface and add them, but you can spend diamonds and build docks to hold more ships.

    I'm playing on an XBox One. My girlfriend also plays on the same one, but she has her own gamertag and uPlay account. Sometimes when I play, I access her Fleet in my cabin, and she will access my Fleet in her cabin when she plays. So for example when I capture a ship in my main game, it gets added to her Fleet. Any way to unscramble this? Seems random when it happens.

    Are there any plans to make this feature available offline? Holding back on picking up the game until I know for sure because I don't like being tethered to the internet.

      Good luck getting and answer for tough questions. Always online is an anti-consumer practice being adopted by greedy publishers and there is nothing we can do.

    So is this the trend going forward? All AC games are going to have this nasty online requirement callously deemed as "optional" content? Such a shame, leaving the series behind with last gen. Never picked up AC4, won't bother with the rest, not until everything is playable offline.

    Question: Can your fleet help you do things like take over a fort? Also, if you saved ships to your fleet but didn't have an internet connection but now you're getting it- will the in-game account sync to the online account?

    Got this game a week ago and today the Ubisoft servers finally decided to work. But then Kenway's Fleet never loaded. I don't know what to do...this sucks man. Guess I'll just have to press on without it :/

      Had zero luck with that so far, and now that watch dogs is about to launch, expect servers to pretty much be non existent. Waste of a feature, robbing consumers, gave away my copy to gamestop, pretty much done with Ubi because of their anti consumer always online requirements for single player gameplay no matter how ardently they scream "Its Optional".
