Assassins Creed Valhalla, Ubisoft’s new game in the franchise, has quickly become a success for the company, recently we were informed that the game had already surpassed previous installments in its first week of release, so there are many people playing it and looking for each of its secrets.
As we have also been testing and squeezing it, we have come to find some weapons that will be of great interest to those who are looking for the best combinations for the style of play that Assassins Creed Valhalla presents, where both hands have a great relevance in combat.
So we have decided to teach you how to get what we consider to be the best weapons in the game, which are not behind a specific mission and can be obtained from the beginning of the game, without risking too much, just time.
Assassins Creed Valhalla best weapons and how to get them
1. Fang of Fafnir (Spear)
The Fang of Fafnir, is considered one of the best spears in all of Assassins Creed Valhalla, due to the passive ability that we can obtain when brandishing this weapon, and that is that if we wear it, our probability of critical hits will increase if 3 or more enemies around us, situations that are common in the game.

This item can be easily obtained at the beginning of the game, since it is located in the lower right part of the Norway map, not far from Fornburg, in a cave called Hildisvini Crag, as shown below.
Once inside and located the cave we will have to advance a little, to meet an NPC with whom we can talk, he tells us his story and asks us to defeat him to meet Ragnar in Valhalla, the battle with this NPC will not be problematic and we can finish with him easily.
2. Blacksmith’s Hammer (Hammer)
Hammers are powerful weapons in Assassin’s Creed Valhallasince they help us to stun enemies more effectively and at close range they are usually deadly weapons, and one of the best that will give us as a passive that Critical Attacks will knock down enemies, is the Blacksmith Hammer.

This powerful weapon can be found in England, more specifically in Lunden, in a place called The Bodilsburg Garrison, which is located on the outskirts of Lunden and despite being full of enemies, if we are careful and stealthy we can go unnoticed here.
When we reach the indicated point, at the entrance or near it there will be a guard that will contain a key, we must eliminate it, then we must go to the corridor on the left (according to how we entered this area), go up some stairs, break a piece wooden with our arch to access the third floor, and there will be the chest that will contain the Blacksmith Hammer.
3. Suttung’s Claw (Dagger)
The daggers in Assassins Creed Valhalla are a versatile and very fast tool, although they contain little damage, the Claw of Suttung will combine wonderfully, as a secondary weapon, with the Blacksmith’s Hammer, since we will take advantage of its passive that increases our critical damage after each hit and it will stack up to 10 times

This weapon can be found in Wincestre, a city that is in the lower left corner of the map of England, although Wincestre is a city with a power level of 250, where the chest with the Claw of Suttung is, there are no nearby enemies , but we must still be careful, since we are not welcome in the area.
When we are close to the location of the weapon, we must look for an entrance to the Venta Belgarum Lair, once here we must dive into the water and follow the path to an air pocket, there we must find a destructible wall and carry an explosive vase from the other room or if we have it, use the Skill called Incendiary Trap, to enter the lair and get to the chest that will contain the weapon.
4. Huscarle’s Ax (One-Handed Ax)
This ax, despite being obtained very early in the Assassins Creed Valhalla adventure, is incredibly good, its stats are interesting and no more than another axe, however, its passive helps us to increase our attack after each blow dealt and this accumulates effect up to 10 times.

Huscarle’s Ax is located to the right of Ravensthorpe, our settlement, in a lair called Utbech, there will be enemies here, but they will be low level, if you want you can kill them all without fear, then it will be a matter of locating the largest hut in the sector and inside it we will find the chest that will give us the Ax of Huscarle.
5. Skadi’s Wrath (Light Bow)
In Assassins Creed Valhalla we will need to have a powerful bow and one of the most versatile that we can quickly find is Skadi’s Wrath, a bow that will allow us to fire several continuous shots and that one of its graces will be to increase the chance of critical hits when We hit weak spots.

To find this arch, again we will have to go to an area where they do not want us, however, this will be a low level area, so there will not be much risk, we will have to go to the city of Ledecestre and there at the point of travel quickly we will find the chapel to which we must access.
Then once inside we must turn to the right as we enter and we will find a door, which will be closed, but we will be able to enter the wooden structure from the top, then there will be a corridor that will lead us to a cellar, and inside there we will have the chest that will give us this very useful light bow.
6. Lagertha’s Ax (Two-Handed Ax)
Although most of the two-handed weapons in Assassins Creed Valhalla are a bit slow, if we make good use of their combinations they will be very powerful weapons, and Lagertha’s Ax is a weapon with excellent statistics and enormous damage, and obviously what stands out is its passive, which increases our critical damage if there are more than 3 enemies around us, a situation that is quite common in the game.
How to find Lagertha’s Ax in Assassins Creed Valhalla?
To find Lagertha’s Axe, we must go to the northernmost section of the entire game, practically finishing the map, in a town called Housesteads in Eurviescire, this place is surrounded by snow, in fact most of the buildings will be under a white cloak, except where the ax is.
We simply have to go to the place indicated above, look for the building that will have an entrance at snow level, where we will find a destructible wall, nearby there will be bombs so we can access without problems, we can also destroy this wall with the Incendiary Trap skill, then it will only be necessary to access and the chest with the ax will be in front of us.
With these weapons, especially if we improve them to their Golden/Mythical level, they will be very useful and powerful, with which we will be able to execute powerful combos and face unparalleled enemies.
