Assassin's Creed Valhalla: 10 Secret Weapons You MUST Find

From Excalibur to Odin's spear!

Assassin's Creed valhalla

Taking place in 9th century England, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla whisks players on an epic Viking adventure in which they’ll spend dozens of hours forging alliances and conquering kingdoms to carve a new home for Eivor and their friends.

Allowing players to fulfil their role as a fearsome and battle-hungry drengr is the core of Valhalla’s gameplay experience. Alongside sailing our own longship, engaging in both small and large skirmishes, and drinking all the mead we can, there’s also plenty of treasure out there that’s ripe for pillaging.

Golden dots litter the expansive map that encourage players to seek them out in search of wealth, supplies, and new equipment that Eivor can use to make his fight easier.

Unlike Origins and Odyssey, every weapon in Valhalla is unique. Providing its own stats and bonuses means that every combination offers new ways to play and allows players to find the right weapon for their preferred style. Therefore, tracking every piece of gear down is always worthwhile.

However, some weapons are much harder to obtain than others and require a lot of hard work to uncover. Being the best gear in the game, though, finding these secret weapons is something every player should do.

10. Yngling Seax

When first setting out on your adventure in Valhalla, it's understandable that you'll want to hurry through the introductory Norway section as fast as possible to get to England, never to return to this snowy landscape until much later down the line.

After all, experienced players will already know how to synchronise viewpoints and stealthily eliminate guards.

However, there's still lots to see and do in Norway before crossing the sea that's worth your attention. One of which being snagging a powerful weapon right out of the gate.

The weapon in question is the Yngling Seax dagger, and it can be fund at Eikundarsund to the southwest of Rygjafylke. Once there, you'll be able to spot a large building that will be occupied by a group of enemies. Fight or sneak your way past and you'll be able to claim your prize in a chest.

Providing a significant boost in damage after dodging, this nimble weapon is great for new and veteran players. The only downside is it starts at the lowest tier, meaning that you'll need to to be invest in resources to upgrade this one to its full potential..
