The Assassin’s Creed III Treasure Chests are in a limited quantity, unlike those in the previous Assassin’s Creed installments.
This type of AC III collectible becomes available to players during their first arrival in Boston, but players will have to explore a large area if they want to get all chests in the city.
Therefore, it isn’t a bad idea to wait until later sequences, because the Assassin’s Creed III Treasure Chests can be found in all regions, with the sole exception of Davenport Homestead which contains only Peg Leg Trinkets.
Assassin’s Creed III Treasure Chests Locations
The Assassin’s Creed III Treasure Chests represent the most important collectibles in the video game, because inside a chest players can find new recipes that can be used to increase their income, money which can be used to buy new equipment and upgrades, or even weapons and outfits.
A chest comes in the form of a large box (much larger than the small boxes containing the trinkets), that must be opened to receive the items inside.
But not all AC III Treasure Chests are unlocked, those inside cities usually requiring lock picking. Since the AC III Treasure Chests can be found almost everywhere, players must buy seven maps if they want to reveal all of them.
This isn’t an easy task, especially in the first part of the game, when players have to work a lot to save the amount of money required for the maps; therefore, its best to save the money and use the maps included in the following guide.
Also, it should be noted that not all AC3 Treasure Chests are in plain sight, some of them being hidden in underground areas (especially in the Frontier area, where players can also look for Feathers).
While most chests may be easy to get, there are several Assassin’s Creed III Treasure Chests guarded by soldiers, or inside forts, which can be tough to deal with, if players dont have the proper upgrades. Each city has three districts, and the Frontier area is divided in twelve regions.
For this reason, our Assassin’s Creed guide contains a screenshot for each of these districts/regions, revealing the corresponding Assassin’s Creed III Treasure Chests locations.
Note: Players should be aware that the last AC III Treasure Chest in Boston Central District isn’t an ordinary one, because it’s not displayed on the map. After the completion of all Liberation Missions, a Liberation Contract icon will remain on the map.
This points to a tavern, and if players get inside, they should spot the AC3 Treasure Chest icon on the tavern’s map.
The final Assassin’s Creed III Treasure Chest in Boston is upstairs, and it is already unlocked.
Players who decide to find all of them, should know that it is a good idea to locate the AC 3 Treasure Chests in cities, while searching for Almanac Pages or other collectables.
