COMBAT IN SKULL AND BONES: CHOOSING YOUR LOADOUT
Combat in Skull and Bones revolves around naval combat. Between pesky pirate hunters, hostile forts, and dangerous wildlife, you are sure to face many challenges on your journey to become the most fearsome pirate Kingpin to have sailed the seven seas. Luckily, you will have access to a wide variety of ships, weapons, and attachments that will help you on your way. Whether you are fighting ship-to-ship or plundering settlements and forts, having a well-thought-out loadout and strategy will be key in fighting your way to the top.
All ships, weapons, and attachments can be crafted by the Shipwright, Blacksmith, and Carpenter located in each den. All you need is the right blueprints and resources!
Every captain needs a ship! In Skull and Bones you will get to choose from a wide array of different ships, each with different benefits and drawbacks. Each ship is dedicated to a specific role with a dedicated goal in mind.
Out of the many variables, size, category and perks are the main factors to consider when it comes to choosing the ship for your sail.
