Elite Heavy Shot, Misteriosa Island

Coordinates - 307,195

You'll need the diving bell to reach the map at Ambergris Key which is on the second floor of the structure. The Heavy Shot upgrade itself is on the highest structure on Misteriosa Island. Climb to the top and look to the left of the water fountain.

Elite Hull Armor, San Ignacio
Coordinates - 379,770

Look for the wreck near some bright green seaweed. There's a lot of sharks here but at least the wreck is fairly open meaning you don't have to worry about getting in. If you haven't already collected it you should see a bright animus fragment as you approach. Collect that then hang a left to find the chest and the plans.

Elite Round Shot Strength, Kabah Ruins

Coordinates - 769,145

As soon as you leave the diving bell you should see a wreck with some ruins to the right. Head to the front of the structure and you should find a door. The chest will be inside on the lower floor at the back. There's a shark but if you're quick it shouldn't give you too much trouble. Assassin's Creed 4 eleite plans

Elite Mortars, Antocha

Coordinates -  630,660

You'll need some nerves here as not only is there a shark to worry about but you'll have to swim quite deep into the wreck. Look out for the weeds to avoid the shark and then head around to the hull break on the right (if you're approaching from the stern). Swim inside and follow the passage around until you reach the cannon deck. Look out for a skeleton chained to the wall to on the right to locate the chest.

Elite Swivel Guns, Devil’s Eye Caverns

Coordinates - 488,353

Once in the Devil’s Eye Caverns look for that 'V' in the rocks and follow the tunnel you find underneath around to the left. If it's full of jellyfish you're going the right way. Stick to the left and you should eventually come into a small cavern with two chests. The one on the left has the Elite Swivel Gun plans.

Elite Fire Barrels, San Juan

Coordinate - 479,487

The map for this is found at the Northeast corner of Santanillas. You'll then need the diving bell to locate the Fire Barrel plans in the Smuggler’s Den. Look for some broken planks on the wall to find where you need to dig.

This map will be found at Cayman Sound. Head to the upper right side of the islands outer edge and look for some rocks embedded near some trees.

Elite Broadside Cannons, The Blue Hole

Coordinates - 471,170

Take the diving bell down at the coordinates and look for a huge face that looks a bit like Falkor on a stick. Swim past it and go straight down. Look for a rectangle on the sea bed which is the side of the wreck. Go over the top and around the back to find the chest on the sea floor.

Elite Mortar Storage, Mantanzas

Elite Fire Barrel Storage, Isla Providencia

Cordinates - 502,44

The treasure map is found as part of the Scarlatina mission. While the actual plans are found on the Southern coast of Isla Providencia. Look out for a wrecked ship but don't worry, this is on dry land. You'll find the design plans by digging in among these three trees.

Assassin's Creed 4 elite harpoon

Elite Harpoon, Andreas Island

Coordinates - 579,720

You'll find the map for the top harpoon upgrade just to the left of the centre of Mariguana Island. To find the design plans themselves head out to the coordinates and look for this little circular island just off the coast with three trees. Dig just in front of the two trees growing together.

Elite Ram, La Concepcion Shipwreck

Coordinates - 181,296

More sharks, so you'll need to use the weeds to stay un-eaten once you've used the diving bell to get down there. At least this one is easy to recover. Look for the main mast and you should find the chest in a small alcove behind it.
