Almanac Page Locations
Search the indicated locations to find all 36 Almanac Pages (20 in Boston and 16 in New York.). You can also buy an in-game map at the general store that reveals all the Almanac Page locations. One Almanac chapter consists of four different pages. Each chapter unlocks an invention for your Homestead Manor. Once you get near a page, it will start flying away. Walk into a page to collect it. If you do not catch the page, it will disappear. All pages will respawn after a short period of time. Just walk approximately 100 meters away from the spawn point, and return after a minute.

First complete the game at least once to unlock the ability to collect Animus Pivots in online games. You will obtain three Pivots via in-game tutorial, after which you must find more online by placing your pivots in a triangular formation on each level to locate more; no exact locations can be given because the Pivots you collect were actually placed by another player online before you, but you can discern their general locations from the Map menu. Collect Pivots to unlock cheats which can be enabled in the Options menu under "Animus Hack."
|Pivot||How to unlock|
|Infinite Ammunition (Infinite ammo for pistols and bows)||Epsilon|
|Killing Spree (Ability to assassinate even when not in stealth)||Theta|

To change equipment (for example, to use a new sword), enter the "Equipment" screen at a shop. You can now switch items. Note: Some items, such as certain outfits, can be switched in the basement of the homestead manor.
Collect the hidden Pivots throughout the game to unlock the following cheats under the options menu.
Infinite Ammunition: Infinite pistol ammo and arrows
Killing Spree: Allowed to assassinate enemies while not in stealth mode
Made Of Steel: Invincibility
Ninja: Enemy AI disabled; enemies will not see or hear you

Keep spawning and looting convoys to get a lot of good loot quickly. A convoy is a horse-drawn carriage that is guarded by some soldiers and a drummer. They can only be found in the Frontier area. There are certain areas they spawn, but they also will randomly appear during any daytime and weather condition. One of the convoys has approximately a 50% chance to spawn in front of the Templar Fort that is located in the south-western corner of the map. There is a harbor nearby that can be used as a fast travel station. If the convoy does not spawn, you can travel to another map and return. Defeat all the enemies guarding the convoy, then interact with the back of the carriage to get some good loot. Repeat this as many times as desired.
Note: Pivots only become available after completing the campaign, or during the Epilogue. Pivots are hidden collectibles that can be found throughout the game. Pivots can only be found while online. However, you can use the tutorial while in offline mode to find the first three Pivots. You must collect the first three Pivots to find more. The rest of the Pivots are randomly placed by other players, which is why you must be online to collect the rest of the Pivots. To find the player placed Pivots, you need to triangulate their position using the first three Pivots you collected. Placing the three Pivots will create a green search zone on your map. These Pivots can be removed and added on your map screen (remove them by placing the cursor over the pivot, and add them by placing the cursor over the "Connor" icon). Once a search zone has been created, search for a square icon on your mini-map to find a new Pivot. Each Pivot unlocks a new Animus Hack cheat code under the options menu. Pivots spawn every 15 minutes; a timer will appear in the menus. Each Pivot is placed manually by a player. Thus, if another player finds your assigned Pivot before you collect it, the Pivot will change locations.
Use the following trick to go from notorious (wanted) to incognito (not wanted) without paying a bribe to the crier or the printer, and without tearing down any posters. Once you are anonymous (unseen by the enemy) you can use "fast travel" and when you do so, you will become incognito.
