The best weapon combos in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Which weapons to use to survive Eivor’s world.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla gives players access to a large variety of weapons and the ability to dual-wield them. Predictably, there are almost too many different weapon combinations to choose just one. To help you pick, we have compiled a list of the best weapon combinations available. These combos will suit a variety of playstyles, so we recommend trying them all to find which works best for you.

Dane Axes

For this combo, you are going to need the Heavy Dual Wield skill. The combination makes use of two Two-Handed Dane Axes and is about pure damage potential. This is the kind of combo you would want if you have no intention of using stealth or ranged attacks in the game. These weapons often increase critical damage when you are surrounded by enemies. Add runes to increase general and critical damage to make them even more powerful and you will be knocking down armies in no time.

Spear and Bearded Axe

This combo requires you to switch hands fairly quickly to maximize damage output. Keep the spear in the offhand to make use of the unique lunge attack. The lunge allows you to deal some major damage to one of your targets then gives them a nice staggering shove away from you. You can use the lunge to toss your target into other enemies to deal a little more damage. After the enemy is staggered you can switch to your axe and rush the opponent with a fast melee combo. Poison your opponents first to deal even more damage with your axe rush.

Hammer and Dagger

The Hammer and Dagger combination follows the same basic principle as the Spear and Bearded Axe. Use the hammer to stagger and knockback enemies, then rush in with the dagger for a fast combo. The biggest downside is that parrying with a hammer is much more difficult than with a spear. With good timing and a little practice though you can get parrying down fairly easily.

Dual Daggers

The Daggers have the highest attack speed in the game. As a result, wielding a pair of them will let you pull off some ridiculously fast combos. This is a combination less about damage or range and more about just letting out your inner Norman Bates. Daggers tend to miss a lot but with such a fast follow up speed it won’t really matter. As long as you can stay on target the enemy will go down very quickly.

Dual Spears

This combination is a favorite among the AC fanbase. The combination requires the Heavy Dual Wield ability, but lets you cut through enemies with relative ease. Using two spears allows you to keep even agile opponents away fairly easily while letting you deal massive damage to anyone within your long reach. The spears also have a very high attack speed comparable to using dual daggers.
