Right off the bat, you will see that there are a lot of things in the game that requires you to have money to obtain them. I’m not talking about those grab you by the balls and squeeze, helix chips that Ubisoft have infected the game with, but the good old pound. From gang upgrades to supplies, you will need money for lots of things. Most of the quests, from start to finish in the main story, provide very little money. At least very little in terms of how much you need for the gang upgrades. So I have decided to write a guide on making easy money in Assassins Creed Syndicate.
This is one of those fine examples of where you need to spend money to make money. In the gang upgrades section, there are a handful of perks that are wise to pick up as early as possible to maximize the return you get from them. They cost a lot of money at first, but they are worth it in the long run.
This turned out to be one of the best sources of money i could find. Pay £1000 for the map from any store and you will have the locations of all the chests in the area. For me, I was getting anywhere between £300-£800 for each chest I collected. Very easy money and quite a lot of it too.
Random events are, somewhat random and are marked on the map as black icons. These can be things such as races or fight clubs. Some people say the fight club is the best way to make money and it is a good method, but it is quite slow. The best even to look out for are the hijack events. Rob a cart full of supplies and bring it to a location. Very simple to do, a lot of fun and you can net between £700-£3000 for each one you complete.
These are a little less common but are always worth a LOT of money. To start, completing a train heist is usually worth around £2000 which is decent money. While on the quest itself, there are lock boxes in the carriages on the train. You can get £300-£700 for each one of these boxes and there is usually 3 or 4 of them on each heist. You can spot the heists by staying near the train tracks and jumping on the train when it passes by will trigger the event.
