Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – How to Beat the Walloper

We have brought you a guide on how to beat the Walloper. Read till the end as we have also given some fighting tips.

Aside from the main story, the world of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is full of little events and trinkets that will keep anyone occupied for hours. “World Events,” which are essentially side quests, are included in these non-essential activities. Players will be assigned a variety of activities, ranging from ordinary fetch missions to the weird.

Some of the objectives in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla involve small mini-bosses, such as the Legendary Animals, which can be difficult to defeat no matter how strong Eivor is. Then there’s The Walloper, a man with such a powerful punch that just one touch will put even the most ferocious fighter to sleep. Those are his grandchildren’s words. The goal of this guide is to teach you how to beat the Walloper.

How to beat the Walloper: Location

The Walloper is located in Grantebridgescire’s southern section, about northwest of the town of Walden. On the map below, his exact location is circled in red. Players will see two children arguing in front of a well as they approach a small group of huts. The kids would brag about their grandfather and his massive punch, claiming that no one can stand up to him. When you speak with them, a cutscene will play. They’ll summon their granddad after talking about him for a bit.

The Walloper will attempt to persuade Eivor not to engage in a brawl. After a while, a prompt will appear, giving players the option of fighting The Walloper or walking away. The only way to finish the world event and gain the prizes is to fight him.

The Walloper, despite the reputation, isn’t quite as difficult as the aforementioned Legendary Animals, and his attack isn’t nearly as devastating. The only problematic portion of the fight comes at the start when The Walloper will try to punch Eivor just after the cutscene stops.

His punch is soft and sluggish, making it easier to avoid. Parrying one of his attacks, which will stun him, is the best way to defeat him. While The Walloper is stunned, Eivor can use a stunning strike to completely deplete the walloper’s health bar, effectively ending the fight. When a player defeats him, the Walloper expresses gratitude for being liberated from his curse and hands over the key to a closed door.

There’s some regular loot inside the room behind the closed door, as well as a “Bag of Adorned Teeth” that may be sold to a merchant for a tidy sum of silver. Completing the World Event will also grant players experience.

Other attacking tips in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

When a major boss appears, conservative players tend to store their ability points. This further exaggerates the game’s already lengthy runtime. In order to save time, use at least one ability point in each fight scenario. The game liberally rewards you with ability points, generally at least one for every fight. Furthermore, some mushrooms help to replenish this reserve. Keeping up with this resource is a complete waste of time.

A parry is an act of redirecting an opponent’s hit, however, it isn’t always effective. They can deflect mild melee assaults (which turn an opponent’s weapon gold), but they can’t stop a strong melee attack (which makes their weapon red). The usage of this talent can shock an opponent, and many weapons have perks that provide you with extra abilities if you parry successfully. You could try to get out of a fight by avoiding it, but your stamina bar will only allow you so much time.

Playing defense is a war of attrition that Eivor can’t win because of the way stamina works. Parrying, blocking, and avoiding are all important aspects of the game, but they must be done swiftly. When an enemy isn’t assaulting, wildly swiping away on offense brings even the toughest foes down quickly. After a while, a talent will slow down the dodge, allowing Eivor to do massive damage at certain times.

Weak points

All opponents have weak places that are highlighted in yellow, and here is where you should concentrate your efforts. If you hit certain points on their bodies, they will fall faster and may be stunned, which is one of the most enjoyable aspects of the game.

This is easier to perform with a bow and arrow, but it’s also something to keep in mind when fighting the game’s numerous bosses. If you follow this advice, it will be much easier to take down these opponents.

Last but not least, if you want to win a fight, start with a hard strike, especially if your opponent is unaware of your existence. It will deal more damage, and you can then stun them with a succession of mild attacks and parries. As you beat down your opponents one by one, they will fall faster than ever before.
