How to Get to The Arena in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

When you first start playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, you will be introduced to the Bounty Hunter system. Basically what this system means is that you will be hunted by Bounty Hunters as you travel throughout Greece. Killing the Bounty Hunter that is chasing will unlock good loot as well as an invitation to the Arena. The invitation doesn’t specify where the Arena can be found so I’m gonna show you. Below you will find how to get to the Arena in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

Important: The Arena houses most of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey‘s endgame content. The recommended level to take on this mission is 25.

Unlock The Arena Mission They Just Want Cruelty

Before we head off the the Arena, I’m just briefly going to touch on the mission They Just Want Cruelty. This mission is unlocked when loot a Bounty Hunter. When you loot the Bounty Hunter you will get an Arena Invitation. This invitation triggers the quest “They Just Want Cruelty”. The “They Just Want Cruelty” quest has a recommended level of 25, so come prepared.

Where is the Arena?

Location of The Arena in Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Here is the exact location of the Arena.

The Arena can be located on the Eastern coast of Pephka (island located at the bottom right corner of your map). The map above shows you the exact location. You will need to swim through a channel to reach the Arena area. This area’s enemies range from Level 22 to Level 50, so you definitely need to have gear to attempt completing the challenge. With that said, you can visit the Arena at anytime after Sequence 2. To start an Arena challenge speak with Skoura at the Arena Gates.

Who do You Fight in The Arena?
