Phobos Skins and How to Get Them in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Traversing the world of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey can take a while since it is so large. Thankfully, when you begin the game you get a horse named Phobos, who helps alleviate the time it takes to travel long distances. Like everything in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Phobos can have its appearance changed by equipping a number of different Phobos Skins. To help you find the Phobos Skins you want, consult our how to get Phobos Skins guide below.

Phobos Skins – Rare

Common Phobos Skin Assassin's Creed Odyssey

When you first choose your Phobos, it will have a Common Phobos skin.

How to Customize Your Horse

If you’ve read this far and though, wow these skins look good, but how do I apply them, you’re in luck. To customize your horse in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is rather simple. All you need to do is have a skin (any listed above), and then navigate your way to the Inventory screen. On the Inventory screen you should see your Phobos in the lower right of your gear columns. Open the Phobos icon to open up your skins menu. Apply any skin you like to have your Phobos appear like that next time you call it.

Which of the Phobos Skins do you like best? Let me know in The Pit below.

    There are a few more skins that have been added that I don’t see listed here:
    Ghost – 500 Helix Credits “Like the ghost of Patroklos visiting Achilles, this horse is elusive and has likely entered Hades’s gates.”
    Sacred Bull – 750 Helix credits “Dionysos was a god of resurrection and often transformed into a bull. If this one seems drunk, perhaps it’s him.”
    Trojan Horse – 500 Helix Credits “After a Ten Year Siege, Odysseus came up with a plan for the Trojan Hors. It took only three days to build.”
    Cerberus’s Offspring – 750 Helix Credits “Whether it had one, three, or one hundred heads, this hound of Hades had one job: to stop the dead from leaving.
    I wish the descriptions of mounts in game (or someone taking the time to test it out) included their effects. We know Nemea doesn’t take enemy damage, and we know Pegasos doesn’t take fall damage. But what about Fang? The description implies he could be silent/stealth? What about the Bull, can he ram into enemies? would make the decision of whether it is worth spending money easier lolé

    Well i used up all of my skin slots…. so how do i get rid of some so i can buy more? Literally have seen not one article explaining this… and im a bit frustrated lol

  3. X.S. says:

    There’s a new skin available. The Nemean Lion Skin for Phobos. I’d like to see what it looks like in-game before I decide to buy or not. The skin’s effect makes Phobos impervious to damage from enemies, IF I’m making the right assumption from its description that is… It still dies from fall damage, though.

    • X.S. says:

      Also, Pegasus is impervious to fall damage.

    • enricofairme says:

      I’ve added the new skin. Don’t know what I think about it. Makes your Phobos look like it is being eaten by a lion.

      • X.S. says:

        Idk either. They could’ve made it look cooler. Like the lion’s head goes over the horse’s head and wears it like a cap/mask. Another cool feature I think would be for them to add is a Mythical Tier. Basically, your horse turns into other animals. Like, I’d love to ride a Nemean Lion or an Alpha Lion at the very least. Horses are great and all, but I prefer riding predators. What do you think?

        • enricofairme says:

          I really like the idea of having Mythical mounts, with more interesting animations and designs. Unfortunately I don’t see Ubisoft changing how they handle Phobos.

  4. X.S. says:

    You seem to have forgotten about the Aegean Pack where you have to link your Twitch Prime account to your UPlay account. Although I did it, I’m not sure why I’m not getting the pack…

    • enricofairme says:

      Thanks for letting me know. I will add this to the list. Which skin do you like the best so far?

      • X.S. says:

        I like the skin from Exekias. But also the Aegean and Black Unicorn skins. Btw, I killed Exekias, but I never got the skin. Do I need to deal the final blow? Because my Leopard got the final blow.

  5. enricofairme says:

    Which Phobos skin do you like the best? What are you rocking right now? I think the Unicorn and Abraxas are the best looking as they have the most interesting animations.
