Assassin’s Creed Valhalla One Handed Sword Unlock Guide

In the update 1.3.0 of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Ubisoft has added a new one-handed sword players can unlock. This sword is a first of its kind in the game as it only requires one hand to use. If you want the weapon for yourself see our Assassin’s Creed Valhalla one handed sword unlock guide below.

Earn 300 Festival Tokens

The first step in unlocking the new one handed sword is to earn 300 Festival Tokens while the Sigrblot Festival is active. Complete the festival’s mini-games and side quests to earn your tokens. If you want the fastest earning method you should focus on completing the weapons tournament offered by Swinda. This tournament pays you 75 Festival Tokens per completion.

Buy the Skrofnung Sword from Festival Shop

Once you’ve acquired the 300 tokens head to the Festival Shop. In the shop you will see a sword called Skrofnung. Purchase this sword using your token to add it to your inventory. Once the sword is in your inventory you can use it.

What makes the one-handed swords in the game interesting is that you equip two weapons at a time. This makes creating new builds a bit more interesting as you now have some more flexibility.

The sword is can be upgraded both statistically and rarity. Improving the rarity makes the sword change its appearance. Rarity upgrades are done at the blacksmith. Upgrading stats is done through your inventory where you can spend resources to level it up.

There is no word on whether more one-handed swords are coming to the game. This sword has long been rumored and is now finally available to players. I expect there to be more swords coming.

    I cannot get the test your weapons round 1 to begin. My ally is not with me in the ring

      Unfortunately that seems to be an issue a lot of people are experiencing. Maybe do the other activities to earn the Tokens.
