So, currently Black Flag's D-pad for naval is only used for Stopping and making your crew sing songs. While keeping that, it could have been more than just "that", you know.


Left and Right:

Used to cycle between Chain Shot, Heavy Shot, Round Shot, and Fire Barrels. Can be assigned to each broadside and front of ship(If Jackdaw did have rear end cannons like some ships in the game do, it could be assigned to back of the ship as well). This way, we can choose what we want to fire from the broadside of our choosing. This way, we don't have to keep shifting if we wanted to fire a certain round.

Up and Down:

Up is used to tell crew to sing, and down is to tell the crew to stop singing.

Actually, I wished that they gave us the option to select songs for the crew. That could’ve been an additional feature to the D-Pad. Also the PS4 controller touch bad is only used to zoom in and out of the map and scroll up and down. It would’ve been better if we could use it to move the camera in cutscenes or so.
