In this guide you will find the complete list of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla weapons and the strengths and statistics of each. Get ready to slice every Saxon!
As in the previous titles of the saga also in Assassin's Creed Valhalla there are several weaponry to discover and obtain. This time around, however, unlike Odyssey and Origins, the list is much shorter as the game, much more than before, aims to make you focus on the strengthening of each more than on collecting an infinity of specimens.
In Assassin's Creed Valhalla, in addition to the iconic Hidden Blade, Eivor has access to a variety of weapons such as swords, axes, spears and many others. These can be used to brutally decapitate enemies, surprise them from afar or in secret, and assassinate various targets. Weapons can be obtained as reward when completing missions, purchased o realized by a blacksmith, looted by enemies, chests or locations and dropped by villains and various bosses. Your fighting style will definitely be influenced by the weapon you assign to the first hand. Besides, you can also use two weapons of the same type in every hand, except for two-handed axes and spears, of course. You can even wield two shields at the same time and use one as your primary weapon!
Each weapon has a specific effect and affiliation with the three types of talents that Eivor can have: Wolf, Crow, Bear. In your skill tree, you can increase the stats of the various weapons by unlocking the specific branch bonus which has an affinity for the weapon you intend to use. In this guide we will group the weapons into four categories and show you the strengths and statistics of each.
One game, many intertwining
Just today it arrives in physical and virtual stores Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, the latest entry in the historic saga of the hitmen from Ubisoft's Hidden Blade. Once again, as the last two titles in the series, Origins and Odyssey, it is a title colossal both in terms of content and on that of gameplay with mechanics ranging from sieges and raids to the management of a camp to be supplied and transformed into a thriving colony.
At the heart of all this is the singular story of Eivor, a young Viking warrior forced to leave the village of origin together with his clan, Fornburg and Norway to find luck in the British lands. These are the scene of heated clashes between four power-hungry rulers. The Crow Clan and Eivor will have to make their way into this bedlam, make alliances with the other Norsemen who have occupied the lands in question and carve out a space in these. The events of the brotherhood of the Occultie that of Ancient, the ancestors of Assassins and Templars, respectively.
Among the various game mechanics, the return of the Hidden blade, the weapon that distinguished the Assassins from their origin. In the game, the weapon is delivered almost immediately to Eivor who, however, will customize it in his own way not keeping it hidden but clearly visible on the forearm, you know, a true Viking does not like to hide his brutal equipment too much. Also in the game you will be able to manage one crew of looters and share and host those created by you and players around the world. Somehow, therefore, an aspect-related mechanic returns multiplayer.
Come back one more time Layla Hassan, the young former Templar researcher who created a more advanced version ofanimus, a machine that can be used to relive the genetic memories contained in the DNA. The researcher uses Eivor's DNA to uncover the Viking's past and track down the fruits of Eden with whom the Old Norse came into contact. These are very powerful artifacts created by an ancient semi-divine civilization thanks to which it is possible to determine the fate of the eternal struggle between Assassins and Templars. Let's now see the complete list of weapons that you will find in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla.
