If you want to net yourself a bountiful amount of money and increase your survivability, then you’ll want to learn how to fish in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. 

Like all good open-world games, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla features its own fishing mini-game that you can use to scour the deep water depths. You’ll naturally encounter large bodies of water that you can fish in as you sail your way through the frozen Anglo-Saxon kingdoms. Of course, catching yourself a tasty fish supper can prove to be a little tricky at first.

Armed only with a piece of rope and tethered bait, you’ll need to wrestle with your prey if you wish to secure the game’s most prized catches. In order to help aid you in your fishing quest, we’ve put together a handy Assassin’s Creed Valhalla fishing guide.

Fishing in Assassin's Creed Valhalla
Fishing is a little different in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Fishing is unlocked in the early stages of the game and you’ll need to master this mechanic if you wish to heal any mortal blows. In order to fish in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you’ll first need to locate a large body of water. There are various ponds and lakes scattered around the land, so finding one should not prove too difficult. 

Once you’ve located a suitable spot, it’s time to whip out your fishing rope. In order to do this, follow the instruction below:

  1. Bring up the command menu by pressing down on the D-pad.
  2. Aim the fishing rope with the left trigger.
  3. Cast the fishing rope with the right trigger.
  4. When a fish bites, hit the right trigger to hook them on.
  5. Quickly start mashing X/A to reel the fish in.

Certain types of fish put up more resistance than others, so you’ll need to be extra careful when trying to catch rare fish. In some cases, the line will snap if the line takes too much pressure and your prized catch will get away. 

To avoid this, try to ease off mashing X/A every now and again to allow you to adjust the direction of the fishing line. 

If you follow these fishing tips, you’ll be catching plenty of trophy worthy fish in no time. Be sure to check out our other Assassin’s Creed Valhalla guides right here on Dexerto

Synin is a pretty cool pet to accompany Eivor on their travels. But haven’t you wondered what it would be like to be shadowed by a pigeon instead? Now you can, here is how to turn your trusty raven into a pigeon in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

It’s not quite Odin’s raven, but Eivor’s is a necessity for the journey. Synin is excellent at scouting locations and covering the area you’re in from up high.

Not only that, but Synin can be customized to suit your preferences of how a Raven should look like. Perhaps like a pigeon? Because that is entirely possible. In the same way that the recent Assassin’s Creed games have featured flaming demon horses and unicorn-camels, Valhalla has a pigeon.

Here is how you can turn your raven into an amusing pigeon in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

How to turn Synin into a pigeon

Synin is a good friend to Eivor.

This isn’t one of those life-changing alterations that will make you a God at Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but it’s still pretty funny. The mere thought of an ultra-dominant Viking having a pigeon carry out their reconnaissance is a terrific visual.

In order to complete this transformation, you will need Amazon Prime Gaming.

  1. Link your Ubisoft Connect and Amazon Prime accounts
  2. Go to the Prime Gaming page
  3. Claim the Carolingian Dynasty Gear Pack to add it automatically to your game
  4. Load up your saved AC Valhalla game
  5. Head to the nearest horse stable
  6. Equip the pigeon skin

This fantastic costume is now yours to show off to your best Viking buddies.

How to make the most of Synin

Senu, from origins, was the original hovering hero.

Unlike in Assassin’s Creed Origins and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Valhalla reduces the level of assistance that your furry, flying friend offers. There is no more tagging enemies and essentially plotting your path of destruction. You’ll have to be a bit more tactful with your approach.

That isn’t to say that Synin is completely devoid of use. We do actually have a full guide of how to master your Raven in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: with tips & tricks.
