Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Difficulty levels Assassin's Creed Valhalla guide, walkthrough

This page of the Assassin's Creed Valhalla guide has information about the available difficulty levels. You will find out what types of difficulty settings are in the game and what they change.

Difficulty levels - general information

The first time you can choose the difficulty level is when you start a new game - Assassins Creed Valhalla: Difficulty levels - Basics - Assassins Creed Valhalla Guide

The first time you can choose the difficulty level is when you start a new game. It is a three-stage process, as you set the difficulty level for the different elements of the game separately. This will help you to adjust the gameplay to your own preferences in the best possible way. The three main categories for which you choose the difficulty are:

  1. Exploration - The settings affect, among others, how easy it is to find objects and locations in the game world.
  2. Combat - The settings affect, among others, how easy it is to defeat enemies in direct fights and avoid death.
  3. Stealth - Facilitators include how easy it is to avoid getting detected and to perform stealth kills.

You can also change all difficulty level settings during the game. To do this you have to open the pause menu and go to the Gameplay tab.

Difficulty level settings - exploration

The three main difficulty levels for this setting are - Assassins Creed Valhalla: Difficulty levels - Basics - Assassins Creed Valhalla Guide

The three main difficulty levels for this setting are:

  1. Adventurer the easy difficulty
  2. Explorer the default normal difficulty level
  3. Pathfinder the high difficulty

Regardless of the selected difficulty level, you can also enable/disable the distance and nearest activity icons appearing on the compass.

The higher the difficulty level, the less information is presented on the screen. You will also rely less on the markers on the compass and world map. You may be interested in this if you want to explore the game world by yourself, without any additional help.

Difficulty level settings - combat

The four main difficulty levels for this setting are - Assassins Creed Valhalla: Difficulty levels - Basics - Assassins Creed Valhalla Guide

The four main difficulty levels for this setting are:

  1. Skald is the easy difficulty
  2. Vikingr the default normal difficulty level
  3. Berserkr the high difficulty level
  4. Drengr the very high difficulty level

Regardless of the selected difficulty level, you can also adjust the targeting support. The aiming assistant can be useful especially when using a bow.

Higher difficulty levels affect enemies' health, their resistance, and the damage they inflict.

Difficulty level settings - stealth

The three main difficulty levels for this setting are - Assassins Creed Valhalla: Difficulty levels - Basics - Assassins Creed Valhalla Guide

The three main difficulty levels for this setting are:

  1. Apprentice the easy difficulty
  2. Assassin the default normal difficulty level
  3. Master Assassin the high difficulty level

Additionally, you can enable a Guaranteed Assassination which is very big facilitation. It allows you to kill every opponent with a single stealth attack. This can make the game much easier for you, as it eliminates the need for special preparation to kill a stronger/elite opponent. The developers discourage using this setting when you are playing the game for the first time as it destroys the game's balance.

Increasing the difficulty level makes the enemies' senses sharpened they can spot and expose the main character faster. The high difficulty level is recommended if you are looking for challenging stealth.
