On this page of our guide to AC Valhalla we prepared the most import information about combat and raids. Also, we have discussed the weapons available in the game. Additionally, you will learn more about melee duels and opponents.
Combat and battles
The developers have decided that combat would be more brutal than in previous parts of the series. So you have to get used to lots of flying limbs and blood. In addition, you will encounter a wide array of opponents (the largest in the history of the series). This will make the battles even more varied.
You will use a wide arsenal of weapons during combat. Among the available equipment there are such weapons as swords, axes and shields. You may also find a hidden blade that is well-known in the series. But you don't have to use weapons. Instead, you can beat and kick your opponents.
You will be collecting equipment throughout the entire game. The further you are in the game, the better the gear. However, if you don't want to replace your current equipment, nothing is lost. The developers made sure that each piece of gear can be modified. This allows you to increase its combat capabilities and adjust to your own preferences.
In AC Valhalla you will carry out massive raids. These are looting raids in which you will attack specific locations, steal treasures, and create general confusion in hostile areas. These raids have a form of large-scale battles, in which you are likely to be helped by the crew of your ship. The places you're going to raid and assault are made up of multiple rooms that you can explore. It may also happen that some doors will be closed.
The places you're raiding are heavily guarded. You may encounter, among other things, watchtowers with archers that will make it difficult to get into the guarded area. Once you break through, you'll have to confront more opponents.
