How to beat Odin

Taking on Odin is more of a mental struggle than a physical one. Odin cannot be defeated in the usual sense, necessitating the use of more than a sharp sword. Players will face Odin in a dreamscape at the conclusion of the game. Odin wields a spear and taunts players while attacking them. Players will be armed with an axe instead of their regular equipment.

In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, players will be forced to battle indefinitely; if they die, the presence of Sigurd and Randvi will resurrect Eivor. Odin will draw Eivor back to the fight if he tries to flee towards Sigurd and Randvi. Following a few fatalities, the game will warn players that Odin has taken possession of their axe, stopping Eivor from reaching Sigurd.

It’s not difficult to defeat Odin. The only thing Valhalla gamers need to do is drop their axe, which they may do by going to the inventory menu and unequipping it. Odin will become agitated, urging gamers to take up their axes and battle like genuine warriors, but they should ignore him. Odin has no influence over Eivor because he doesn’t have the axe. To terminate the combat and trigger a cutscene, Valhalla players merely need to run near Sigurd.

Additional combat tips

Players frequently concentrate their attention on a single style of combat, such as melee, ranged, or stealth. You must pick one of these playstyles until you reach a level when you can branch out and add another. Some playstyles are tougher than others due to different conflicts, yet any strategy may be used to beat an adversary.

Melee is your major playstyle if you want to charge into battle and confront your opponents head-on. Those who prefer a bow and arrow to an axe should concentrate on ranged combat. Finally, if you want to slip through the bushes and assassinate your opponents, stealth is the playstyle for you. However, this style does need you to have a backup concentration on one of the other playstyles.

Using your skill points carefully as you place them on different portions of the constellation tree is the greatest way to focus your efforts on a primary playstyle. Early on in the game, you should aim to keep to one branch of the tree and then spread into the other sectors once you’ve established a strong branch.


The armor you pick is equally as vital as your weapon, and this guide will show you the greatest armor in the game. However, you should pick an armor that matches your playstyle, since some are designed to absorb a lot of melee damage while others have greater ranged attack advantages. Wearing a full set provides additional benefits, and upgrades can be given to specific armor sets within the skill tree.
