The Jackdaw is what Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag's developers call the "second main character" of the game.
Sections of the Jackdaw
The Jackdaw has several important locations on it.
The wheel of the Jackdaw is the place where Edward can steer the ship.
From here, he can pilot the ship and order around his crew.
The cannons of the Jackdaw are its primary form of offense.
They fire in an arc from the sides of the ship in large clusters.
The Swivels are smaller cannons that can be used for pinpoint targeting.
