    The challenge was removed in early 2021 because there was an issue with some broken fish spawns. Ubi fixed it but didn't add the challenge back in for some time. I completed the fishing requests in the meantime. I saw today that the challenge was added back in (don't know when exactly), but there is no way for me to obtain it. I equiped the weapon, upgraded it, killed enemies with it and completed Reda contracts with it (I ran out of main story quests to complete). Is there any way for me to unlock the challenge?

    Unlikely but worth writing in case it helps. I had the not-unlocking problem, if I remember correctly it DID unlock after it got fixed but there was no notification, I only saw it had unlocked when I opened the app.

    @spirantcrayon22 I never get any pop ups for achievements and challenges, might be my ubisoft connect settings tho. The challenge is still locked however, i checked both via the overlay and the 'core' challenge tab in the game launcher

    @veico_cm Thanks very much for clarifying that for us, and thanks also to @SpirantCrayon22 for your insights there! As Ubi-Borealis has said, it's something we're looking to have resolved as soon as possible.

    I have deliberately not delivered a final fish to the Fishing Hut (and thus not collecting the Swordfish weapon), waiting for this problem to be resolved. I saw that the Core Challenge had been re-enabled, so I collected the Swordfish sword from the Fishing Hut and wielded it, but the challenge still remains not unlocked for me.

    After the Oskoreia Festival update I was hoping for a fix, unfortunately the problem is still there, the challenge will not unlock.

    As suggested, I checked the known issues list, but I see no mention of the "Stinky but Deadly" challenge not unlocking on this list. Is this "officially fixed"? If not, why isn't it on the Known Issues list?

    Hello @Father-Jack and thanks for getting in touch. Sorry to hear you can not complete the core challenge "Stinky but Deadly".

    Can you please confirm your game is fully up to date? In order to look into this further, we would like to request you take a video of Eivor killing an enemy with a swordfish equipped. Additionally, please make sure that your latest save has been added to the Cloud (it will have a cloud icon next to it). This step will allow us to use your save files for investigations.

    Don't hesitate to get back to us if you have additional questions.
