    Thank You 🙏🏻 Ubisoft and all the talented and amazing people for giving us this amazing game.
    It’s miraculous what you create and what we are able to experience.

    Valhalla is remarkable.

    Would you please consider adding one handed swords to the game?
    Its an iconic weapon and I know many people would enjoy the immersion of being able to play with a sword and shield.
    It would be wonderful to see famous and historical swords such as the Ulfberth.
    And very appropriate for such a wonderful game and those of us who prefer more realism instead of fantasy

    thank you and kind regards

    @max-mumford96 Yeah, sorry, I just noticed after I posted that there's already posts about this. Should have checked. It's crazy. Dual wield shields but no swords, like?

    Not a single one handed sword! How could you forget such a simple thing as a normal sword. I am baffled!

    I have been a huge fan of the assassin's creed series since the first one and have owned all of them. Assassin's Creed Valhalla is the first game I've ever preordered and I was ecstatic to play it. However the fact the game has no single handed viking swords absolutely baffles me and I'm quite bothered by it as the viking longsword was an iconic weapon that was in the hands of many warriors (including most npc's in the game. I feel like it really wouldn't be much to add a couple single handed swords and a fighting style to go with it in your next update. Please take my suggestion ubisoft!!

    @commandocole166 agreed. All they had to do was insert the animations from origins into the game. I don't understand it either. I guess they would've needed an offhand attack but they could just used another weapons animation or something. And then all they woulda needed would've been a parry/block animation.

    The more people who mention it means that hopefully they'll do something about it 😊. Fact game reviewers are clocking this now is a good sign so hopefully they'll patch it in soon.

    two handed swords where not used during this era they didn’t gain popularity until the 13th century

    @nol0072 I agree they should add one-handed swords.

    I do agree, this was an oversight on ubisofts part. You can get close, however- in the upper left of the skill tree is dual wield two handed weapons skill. I use this one with a 2H sword and then throw on a shield, or put a dagger in the right hand. As close as you can get right now.

    Hey, you need to add One Handed Swords in the game. Its a sign of wealth in the viking era. WE NEED IT UBISOFT!

    Ah the arguments of old shields are arriving again the same arguments that were for and against them ahhhhhh and even some new ones! Yippee!! I love you guys always so predictable!! As my comment in the old thread has predicted looks like I'm really surprised the people who were complaining about us wanting shields arent here yet let's just see what happens I havent bought the game due to last years design choices and this years as well it seems if I pick it up itll be used copy

    Ohhhh enlightened one - could you copy-paste your arguments with your predictions? Not everyone, at least not me, has any idea what you where predicting in the "Odyssey no shield" thread on the old forum (I assume that is the thread you are referring to?). A copy-paste of t (or at least a link) would lend your statement at least some credibility...

    @aloninor my first post on this thread here takes you to the one handed swords thread in the Valhalla general forums from before beta I just find this funny that's all I agree with wanting swords I too find it ridiculous
    My post here is at the very top it was to catch everyone up to speed if they were new

    Good point! Didn't saw your first post in thread - thanks for link to your previous post. I think at this point it is not much of a prediction though - if you remove something people like, some people will complain some examples include:

    • social stealth,
    • wearing a hood in combat,
    • shields,
    • the hidden blade,
    • Desmond Miles (removed for other reasons),
    • and in this thread: 1h swords.

    So yeah, while you were right in your last post - this is fairly predictable on doesn't require foresight 🙂

    @aloninor @Dtheawesome9010 does you guys know of Ubisoft have done an official why we decided to not bother with a key feature of most historic and fantasy games I still haven't seen them respond to anything?

    @barryscott275 only thing I know of is a tweet from someone no official reason as to why they were removed tho just a confirmation as to them not being used

    I have seen some claims, e.g. in this thread, of the argument being "...because 1h swords are very expensive...". But I do not know who started these, or where they come from - so I don't take them too seriously.
    Other than that - we haven't really gotten an argument other than "swords are handled as 2h" which was the confirmation that we wont have 1h swords, but not really a argumentation on why.

    @aloninor @Dtheawesome9010 have they confirmed that they will add them or not or just silence?

    @barryscott275 silence as usual it seems
    Just promoting the game in every way they can keeping whatever wrong they did under wraps so they can forge a profit
