One of the biggest money making methods discovered in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla so far allows players to rack up thousands of silver, simply from taking on drinking competitions. 

The game has a number of different characters you can choose to interact with, whether it be taking part in a game of Orlog, take on side quests, or more relevant to racking up some coin – drinking yourself into a drunken mess.

Racking up money fast is all good and well, but you are going to have to gulp down alcohol just as quickly to have a chance. As YouTuber Idicus found out in a video posted to his channel on November 11, it can be a particularly effective method for increasing your net worth.

Progressing through Valhalla is much easier with a load of silver in your pockets.

How to get silver fast in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

The player first claimed that they thought this may be a glitch, though it looks to be an intentional feature Ubisoft have added in-game.

Speaking of the trick, they said: “It is definitely meant to be in the game, it’s just insanely broken if you repeat it over and over. It will net you thousands and thousands of silver in no time.”

This cash is obviously good to have for those looking to get their hands on better armor, weapons, arrows, and other things along your journey.

The method is explained in the vide below. 

Essentially, to do this all you have to do is locate your nearest drinking game. These are dotted around the world and are signposted with a symbol of two locking horns, where players drink from.

Once you arrive there, the YouTuber suggests you should bet the maximum amount – 200 silver – to kick things off. Then, it’s all about doubling your money.

The content creator suggests that up to 8,000 silver could be made every single hour in continuous play, which will free up the resources for a number of exciting purchases.

Here’s how the horn symbol looks in Valhalla. Approach it to start the game.

The guide video from Idicus is handy in terms of knowing how the exploit, or method, works in Valhalla. However, it might not be immediately clear how the drinking game works. To help you out, we’ve created a short step-by-step guide to help you gulp down the ale.

  1. Load up the game and visit a drinking location, found with the locked horns symbol.
  2. Enter the drinking games in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
  3. Hit A/X every time the the white circle hits the inside of the orange inner circle.
  4. Continue this process with accurate timing to outdrink your opponent.
  5. Collect your winnings, which if you place a high stake, will allow you to make thousands in a matter of hours.

Now that you know what you know, you should be able to sit down and rack up thousands of silver in no time! Good luck, Eivor.

3 Assassin’s Creed Valhalla easter eggs you need to see

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla might not strike you as a game that blends the worlds of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, but if you look in the right place, these easter eggs can be found. 

Ubisoft’s game released alongside the Xbox Series X|S and since launch players have searched every inch of the game’s expansive world. In doing so, a number of exciting crossovers to other major franchises have been found.

Although the world of Valhalla may be set in the age of the Vikings, which is nothing remotely like the grounds of Hogwarts, there are some things you can find that blur the lines.

Valhalla’s easter eggs are spread across various regions of the game’s world.

Best easter eggs in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Harry Potter easter egg

This easter egg is located in Lunden, south-east of St Paul’s Cathedral in a small thatched building.

The building is guarded by a snake and a key is required to unlock the door. Use your Odin Sight and you’ll see a white indicator that marks the location of the key on the balcony of a nearby building.

Players will enter what looks to be Voldemort’s hideout.

Once inside, players will find an eerily dark lit room filled with strange objects. On the table directly opposite the door, there’s a readable note for players that lists each of Voldemort’s Horcruxes from the Harry Potter films. These were, of course, the powerful objects in the Deathly Hallows, which contained a hidden fragment of a wizard or witch’s soul.

Despite the room only containing the ‘Strange list’, it’s a great easter egg to discover. For any fans of the Harry Potter franchise, this is one you can’t afford to skip.

Dark Souls easter egg

It’s hard to find an open-world RPG that doesn’t have a reference to From Software’s legendary franchise. There are no complaints from fans, though, as it’s always exciting to discover a Dark Souls easter egg, especially if it’s the iconic bonfire.

Here’s exactly where to find the Dark Souls easter egg.

The bonfire is located in east Ledecestrescire in the ruins of a building. We’ve seen the same bonfire reference in countless titles and it still never gets boring. Luckily, as long as you remember to save regularly, you won’t be spawning back at the bonfire when you die.

Lord of the Rings easter egg

It would have been a missed opportunity to not include a reference to Tolkien’s Middle-Earth in the world of Valhalla. Lucky for us, Ubisoft didn’t disappoint and even added one of the Rings of Power into the game.

Here’s exactly where to find the Lord of the Rings easter egg.

The easter egg is located west of Glowecestre on the edge of the river in a small house. Players will need to locate the nearby hidden key with their Odin Sight and enter the building.

Inside there’s a readable note that reads “One of the little folk asked me to make the door smaller, as he wants to keep unruly houseguests from his house.” This is a clear reference to Tolkien’s character Bilbo Baggins.

It’s amazing Ubisoft actually added a Ring of Power to the game.

Next to the note, the developers have even added a small ring in reference to the Rings of Power. It’s unfortunate that players can’t equip the ring, but honestly that’s probably for the best.
