Unique & Legendary Weapons In Assassin's Creed: Valhalla And Where To Find Them

Gungnir (Odin's Spear)

The famous spear of Odin himself can be found in the game as well. This comes under the mythical Isu weapon, which the "ones who came before" created. To obtain this weapon, you must first complete the game's main story, including all the story arcs in England. This weapon is suitable for those looking to have aggressive combat but at a slight distance.

Gungnir has a unique force field around it that extends upon melee, giving you an added advantage of extended reach. It also glows with an aura whether you've sheathed the weapon or wielding it actively.

After completing all the story arcs in England, Sigurd will ask you to return to Norway with him. He will take you to a place called Hordafylke, located in the northernmost part of Norway.

When you reach the location, you will soon start the main story quest called "A Brother's Keeper." You can either choose to complete this quest and return to this same location for the spear, or you can go to the spear without finishing the quest.

After finishing the "A Quiet Homecoming" main story quest, you will be able to free-roam again, and that is when you get the spear at a later time after finishing the stated quests.

Time to get to the spear. Return to Hordafylke and make your way back to the same cave Sigurd took you. The name of the cave is Goinnhellir.

Keep climbing up the cliff until you reach an intersection. Turn left from the intersection to reach an open area with a frozen pond and the cave entrance. Be careful around here as the area is crawling with polar bears.
