AC4: Black Flag – How to Hunt a Killer Whale [Location Guide]
Take on a deadly Killer Whale in Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag with only a couple dozen harpoons at your side with our location guide. Kenway might not have a grudge against the whale like Ahab, but he’s willing to face danger to defeat this prey.
The Killer Whale is practically a boss battle. It leads the boat around by rope before diving under the waters, getting ready to pounce and tear your tiny raft apart. See where to find the creature, and a few tips for defeating it below.

Killer Killer Achievement Guide
Note: Purchase plenty of Harpoon upgrades before starting this event. Extra armor, harpoon storage and strength will make hunting whales easier.
1. Find a Killer Whale hunting location. One can be found at the coordinates (537, 340) on the world map.
2. Sail until a deck hand announces that prey can be seen. A button prompt will appear, sending Kenway out to hunt the target with a harpoon.
3. Peg the whale with a harpoon to follow it, but watch out when it dives underwater. Scan the horizon, the whale will reappear and charge the boat. Hit it with another harpoon, or you’ll take some damage.
4. Deplete the whale’s health, shown in the top left corner, to complete this event and earn the Killer Killer achievement or trophy.
Does this sequence seem familiar? The fight might be an homage to the Del Lago boss battle from Resident Evil 4. Or I’m just a raging Capcom fanboy, looking for similarities anywhere. Both possibilities are plausible.
