Assassin’s Creed Odyssey had revamped the Leap of Faith, allowing players to do it from practically any high place and even land on hard ground. In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, players get back the good ol’ Leap of Faith; however, it doesn’t unlock straight away.
The Leap of Faith unlocks after the first few missions of the game. Once you defeat Kjotve and travel to England, you will start building your settlement. There are many buildings you can build in your settlement after you have completed your first Raid and built the Gunnar’s Forge.
Building the Hidden Ones Bureau for Hytham will trigger a quest, To Serve the Light. In this quest, you just need to follow Hytham to the clifftop, and he will show you how to perform the Leap of Faith. Simply jump from the place Hytham jumped, and that will unlock the Leap of Faith.
Unlike Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the Leap of Faith doesn’t work from any tall structure. There are only specific locations from which you can perform the Leap of Faith, marked with the eagle icon on the map. These also serve as the synchronization points on the map, which reveal all the areas of interest in the surrounding area. Moreover, you need to jump towards water or a haystack to perform the Leap of Faith. This is quite similar to the early titles in the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
