Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s world is filled with toothy terrors and bloodthirsty Vikings, so you’ll need the best gear if you wish to survive. Here’s where you can find the rare Huntsman Helm. 

As you brawl and loot your way through the damp landscapes of Anglo-Saxon England, you’ll come across a wealth of items. However, not every weapon and armor piece you find in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be of use to you. In fact, the game’s best gear invariably requires a little extra work to find.  

As a result, acquiring rare loot can be a rather tricky affair, especially if you’re busily cutting through all the side quests and story quests. Fortunately, this guide will show you how you can get your hands on one of Valhalla’s most sturdy armor pieces – the Huntsman Helm. 

How to find the Huntsman Helm

This hardy helm will help you shrug off even the most lethal attacks.

In order to claim this handy helm as your prize, you’ll first want to travel to Tonnastadir. Once you have fast traveled to this location, simply begin running over to the cave section of the map. This cavern is surrounded by wooden walls and is guarded by three mercenaries. 

Quickly dispatch the two archers at the back to avoid taking any chip damage, then focus on the axe wielder. Other Tonnastadir mercenaries may join in the fight if you’ve been caught running towards this location, so you’ll need to defeat them as well. 

When you’ve finally finished cutting down your foes, simply open the locked door and slide down the slope into the cavern below. At the very end of the cave, there will be a golden chest. Open the chest to claim the Huntsman Helm. The Huntsman Helm has the following stats:

  • Arm: 24
  • L-Res: 21
  • Wgt: 13
  • Eva: 12
  • H-Res: 21

Equipping the full Huntsman set will increase your ranged damage when hitting enemies further than 20m away, while also adding an increase to speed. This makes the Huntsman a decent set for those that like to take out their enemies with ranged attacks.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is home to plenty of iconic weapons from both Norse and English legends, so it was only a matter of time before players discovered the legendary Excalibur sword. 

Eivor is no stranger to wielding some incredibly powerful weapons – in fact, during your Viking adventure, you’ll encounter everything from flaming axes to Thor’s very own hammer. There’s certainly a lot of variety when it comes to choosing the perfect tool to dismember your enemies with.

While the game’s two-handed axes and razor-sharp swords prove lethal in their own right, the very best weapons are often those from legends. 

Of course, obtaining these rare items can be a little tricky, especially when they are safely tucked away in secret locations. Not only does Excalibur look incredibly cool, but it’s also devastatingly powerful. If you wish to add this legendary sword to your arsenal, then follow our guide below. 

How to find Excalibur

Excalibur is one of the coolest looking weapons in the game.

In order to wield this mighty sword, you’ll first need to locate all 11 tablets that are scattered across England. The 11 tablets can be found in the following locations:

  • Red Lichen Cavern (Hamtunscire)
  • Cavern of Trials (Cent)
  • Wicean’s Cave (Eurvicscire)
  • Grime’s Graves (East Anglia)
  • Deoraby Spar Cavern (Snotinghamscire)
  • Wocig (Hamtunscire)
  • Old Cellar (Essexe)
  • Santlache Mine (Suthsexe)

Once you’ve solved each cavern’s puzzle and obtained the above tablets, you’ll need to hunt down the following three Zealots:

  • Heike (southwest of Agnitum Tower in Essexe)
  • Woden (roaming around Tonbridge Monastery in Cent)
  • Hrothgar (northeast of the High Rocks in Suthsexe)
Myrddin's Cave location

    Myrddin’s Cave can be found in the following location.

Defeating the above Zealots will reward you with the final three stone tablets. Take your stony collection over to Myrddin’s Cave in Hamtunscire (northeast of Egbert’s Stone). Simply run to the end of the cave and insert each tablet into the stone pillars. 

This will then enable you to pull Excalibur from its resting place and claim the legendary sword as your own. Excalibur has the following stats: 

  • Atk: 123
  • Stun: 133
  • Wgt: 14
  • Spd: 41
  • Crit-Pre: 86

Heavy finishers and critical hits blind all enemies around you, making it a great weapon for those looking to deliver a lot of crowd control and damage. Pair this with any armor set that boosts your crit chance to constantly blind your enemies with flashes of brilliant light.
