Infinite money trick

Reach Sequence 2: Memory 3 and proceed until you reach the area where the three templars are standing around a table. The "Pickpocket All Templars" optional objective will appear while standing next to them. Pickpocket all three templars, then pause the game and choose the "Reload Last Checkpoint" option. The money you pickpocket from the templars will be saved, and you can pickpocket them again. Repeat this process as many times as desired to get an infinite amount of money-- about 35,000 R every seven minutes. Note: this glitch was done on an unpatched version of the game.

Easy 100,000 Reales

After completing the mission "Mister Walpole, I presume?" (Sequence 2 Memory 3 of the main story), open your pause menu (Esc key for PC users), select Progress Tracker, select Sequence 2, Memory 3, and start a replay of that same mission. Play the mission until reaching an optional objective to pickpocket the three Templars. Once at that point, pickpocket the three Templars for an average of 750 - 850 Reales. Once pick-pocketed, quickly pause the game and choose Reload. Reload from last checkpoint. The game will allow you to keep the Reales you earned and pickpocket the Templars again. Repeat the above steps until you have 100,000 or more Reales. This can be done in a few minutes time, and 100,000 can easily cover about 20% of the total game's purchases. Note: The game developers prevent you from farming any more than 100,000 Reales on your person using this tactic, so to maximize profit, don't start farming until you've spent all your previous money to get as much as you can out of it.

Unlimited money hint

Note: If you haven't sunk Brothers-in-Arms yet, initiate combat with them and only focus on sinking one ship. After sinking that one ship, collect the loot and then allow yourself to fail. Once you respawn you'll notice that the ship is back in place. You can then proceed to once again destroy only one ship and loot it, then restart the event-- all while keeping the money obtained. Feel free to repeat this process as often as you like for 10,000R each time, making Brothers-in-Arms a terrific benefactor. Upgrading your cannon, shot, chain shot, and ram abilities is recommended so you take down the ship faster.
