How to get Nodens’ Arc in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

A bizarre method for a great weapon.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is full of secrets for you to uncover as you journey through England. Some are easier to find than others, and some haven’t been found until just recently, such as Nodens’ Arc. This bow comes with three rune slots and has the power to hit enemies harder the farther you are from them. However, the method by which players are getting ahold of this bow is pretty strange, as the “official” way has yet to be found. But, if you want to get your hands on it right now, here is the method you can use.

How to get Noden’s Arc

You will want to head to the very top of the map, to the northernmost lake in Eurvicscire.

Once you have found this lake, you will find a small island/outcropping on the southern shore.

On this small area, you can find an ore deposit, in the middle of some bushes.

Now comes the weird process of getting the bow. You will notice that you can’t mine this ore deposit. You can hit it and it won’t break apart. However, you need to still hit it. We are not sure of the number of hits it needs, but we depleted a few of our stamina bars into it. Once you do this, create a manual save and exit out of the game completely. Boot it back up and log back in, and you should find yourself in a pile of rubble and get a notification that the bow is in your inventory.

You may need to do this a few times to get it to work, though we got it on our first try. Just keep at it and eventually the bow will be yours.

The real method

As of right now, no one knows the official way you are supposed to acquire this bow. The game’s Narrative Director, Darby McDevitt, has taken to Twitter to say that there is an official method that has not been found, but what that is has yet to be found. Once that method is uncovered, we will update this article to let you know.
