For outfits and ship appearances, I'm only missing those that require completion of community challenges. Do they have something to do with the glitchy AC initiates site? If yes, then I'm not surprised.

Also, where do you get gold pistols?

You get the gold pistols after finishing all the privateer contracts (those you get at defeated forts). As for the community challenges, I'm as lost as you. I'm guessing it is something you do online, since my Xbox isn't connected to the interwebs.

You unlock the Golden Flintlocks by doing all Naval Contracts.

You're telling me I had the gold pistols long ago? I made this same mistake with the pistol swords...

You earn a costume, figurehead, sword, pistol, and wheel for community challenges.

I was paying attention to the Swords and Pistols because they still aren't 100%. I thought it was because I didn't have Pistol Swords and Gold flintlocks but I had them since the beginning of November...

AC Initiates is still in beta. Actually, I think it's a public alpha even.

The community challenges is where you are required to, as a community, to do something together. Last one was do 2000000 Assassinations. They had to be stealth kills, and you had to get at least 20 of them to earn the reward, which was the Explorer Outfit the first go-around.

Btw, what is "Open a memory about Mayan site on initiates"? It's a mission objective on the site.

I really want the explorer outfit just to try it out. But I haven't seen any challenges on xbox one.

The site has a database feature. You just need to find the right entry for that to get checked off.

Where does one even find these community challenges? I haven't seen any so far. Are they just not available for PC, as usual?

What do you mean "as usual?"

There's been only one Community Event, and it was on 360 and PS3. The next gen consoles and PC haven't seen one yet, but they will.

PC players always tend to get shafted on these things, at least for the first month or two. We had to wait 3 months for loyalty rewards and champion packs for the AC3 multiplayer. Social events for AC4 have also been pretty borked so far. (Working only when they feel like it.)

I haven't seen a single white whale, social chest or royal convoy yet, even though my friends list on uPlay increases like by 10 people every day >_<

The social events worked for me on the first day, then stopped working for several days. Yesterday I finally found my first two white whales and immediately snatched them up in case the system goes down again.
