    @max18400 It's the little things that add up. Sure it's not a "huge" issue, but it's an iconic Viking weapon, the fact that we can't use them (but everyone else can) is definitely noticeable.

    @sof-mcdonald-a Just to clarify, there were 2h swords during this time. They just weren't labelled as such. At the time, swords weren't really standardized, so there were a few around (at least historically as they've been found and dated to that time) that could be classified as longswords, but they are just much larger sized normal swords at least in how they were designed.

    Not putting in the Iconic and Historically named "Viking Long Sword " in a Viking Game...?! Is like having a Game About Spartans ... And not putting the Iconic Spartan shield in it lol lol
    .... Oh Ubisoft lol 😋 what were you thinking ???

    @sof-mcdonald-a I mean, they did that with Odyssey lol. That's my literal only gripe with Odyssey too. I'd probably be adding to my 1360 something hours in it if shields were in game lol. But yeah, Ubisoft makes really strange design decisions, I just wish they would tell us "why" they make these decisions, like an actual proper explanation.

    With Odyssey they at least had an excuse for not having a shield they they responded to (to use the spear of leonidas) and that the character was an outcast so wasn't trained to fight in a phalanx. It was still annoying as hell, but they at least addressed it. There is no excuse for no actual one handed viking swords in the game.

    @max18400 To be fair, there was no phalanx fighting in Odyssey at all. As far as being an outcast, it doesn't explain why they, as a mercenary, decided to train themselves to use all manner of weapons aside from a shield; when other mercenaries, use shields. The Spear of Leonidas thing makes sense, though you can use abilities and two handed weapons which means the Spear is on your back, and glows (outside of the actual Spear use abilities like Ring of Chaos). I mean, yeah, you're right, they gave some reasoning, which may or may not have made sense, but it was at least something. Regarding one handed swords, no explanation as of yet, and I honestly look to be confused if or when they say why.

    You're right and I completely agree with you. It didn't justify it, but that was their excuse for having no shields. I'll just hope they'll patch it in. They clearly have it coded in, just need to apply it.

    @max18400 I'd be totally fine with just a simple cosmetic reskin of the one handed axe attack chain animation.

    It would be so easy to patch them in as well. Even doing more then just reskinning a bearded axe is doable

    I think a lot of you have to come down a bit... no reason in treating this like it is the biggest issue in 2020, in gaming history even in AC history.... it is a type of weapon you are missing, no reason to get angry, [censored], super annoyed or deeply disappointed in Ubisoft.

    Also, we can't demand justification for every choice in the game. This is a choice they made, just like they choose to give the settlement 6 levels instead of any other number, or they chose to have X order of the ancient members instead of Y.

    Unpopular opinion, but get over it...

    Luckily there is no down vote button on this forum : D


    The majority here would agree with you mate. Nobody's calling this the biggest injustice of 2020. Theres always some people that take stuff to far agreed. But people are [censored] and they are venting. If that venting reaches the developers ears then great.

    @burnedrook yes, there were two handed swords in this time period, by vikings didn't use them. Or at least known burial sites do not contain any to my knowledge...

    @fruitloops3000 just fully upgraded the carolingian long sword... It looks weird. And adding insult to injury, they've put ULFBERT on it 😵

    @aloninor
    You can't really compare those choices with the design choice of a having no one-handed swords.

    I love valhalla but playing without a one-handed sword does not allow you to fully immerse yourself in a true Viking experience. i Hope you can implement one-handed swords or at least create smaller designs like one-handed for the long swords type

    in addition to the various Viking and European swords there are many swords in Norse, Saxon and Irish mythology such as the Dyrnwyn, the Gramr and the Nægling from which you can take inspiration to create one-handed swords

    @ubikobold thank the gods, there's hope. Thankyou so much for responding to this issue. Please add one handed swords to the game and some historically accurate armor. It really would make the game go from good to great and make it a truly amazing assassin's creed/viking experience
