Are all the designs for the elite upgrades for the jackdaw, in a buried treasure?

The Elite upgrades are in the Underwater Dive sequences, except for Elite Fire Barrel Storage, which is in a buried chest that I still can't get to.

And how are they visible?
Are they in a normal chest?

They reside inside normal chests yes. Some are burried so youll need a treasure map to find it. (you cant get it if you dont have it even if you know where it is). Youll need a few diving missions and a few treasure maps.. I didnt feel like trying every single treasure map and every single diving mission so i did look how to get each upgrade up on youtube for a video of where to go. Still i cant just take on the legendary ships. I did manage to get the easiest one down but MAN they are hard.. All other ships though.. Easy peasy.

The underwater elite plans are just in normal chests, yes. They always seemed to be in the last or second last one I opened.

As to the Legendary ships, I've done the two in the lower half of the map and while it took me 7 tries to take the first one, the second I did on the first attempt. You need to ram them; that makes a big difference. You can't sneak up on them given the cut scene starts as soon as you get <500m but sail at full speed and ram, turn side on and blast the heavy shot and swivels. Oh and I wouldn't attempt it without fully upgrading everything.

I can't seem to find/get the Elite Fire Barrel Storage. Is that the one that is awarded based on Fleet stuff?

Not sure. Every time I go to that location I get the Animus wall and "area not available. I'm up to Seq 7 or 8, have maxed Kenway's Fleet, captured all the forts and done all of the naval contracts so I'd like to know when it *will* be available.

The chest location isn't available until the end Memory Sequence 8.

I've finished the game and still can't seem to find/get the Elite Fire Barrel upgrade.

The treasure map for Elite Fire Barrel upgrade can be found on Isla Providencia which isn't accessible until the end of sequence 8.

Been there, done that, have all the treasures and maps. Must be yet another bug.
