    Its very sad, because our enemy can use..

    @ottolexius1987 they ain't part of the game

    Odyssey-> no spartan shield
    Valhalla -> no 1h swords
    I think this is a kinda fun thing they do.
    I'm do disappointed.
    For real if they don't add them I'll never buy a game from ubi again.

    @lowlife_j-shrt post it one place spamming the same message across multiple threads just destroys your credability.

    a sword is a sword. Its made of metal.The only difference between a small sword and a big sword is more metal. Know something about history and reality before you start calling people names.

    @dbgager hiya, I'm sorry to say 2 handed swords did not exist in the viking age. I studied viking history for over 4 years at University and specialised in warfare (even have excavated a viking sword in Sweden in a archaeological dig) . Two handed swords are fantastical element in the game, same as flails.

    @lowlife_j-shrt tbh I'm having a similar thought process. I'm really enjoying the game so far. But to not have such an iconic weapon (yes I know swords were a rarer weapon and for the warrior elite) in a game about vikings is just stupid and a serious oversight. At least odyssey had an excuse for no hoplon shield that the devs justified to an extent. But this is unjustifiable and I can't really think of a why they've not included it.

    The forum is roamed by Community Managers 😄 They can report directly to Ubisoft, so yes.

    @aloninor hopefully they read this and resolve it the more I play the game the more it annoys me

    The question is, if the absence of 1h swords actually is a problem, or just a design choice (like giving us a raven or a settlement) that many people don't like and can't see the rationale for? If it is the latter, which I believe, then we are in the same situation as with Odyssey and the absence of shields. They had an argument for it, and even though people didn't like it and complained, the shield was not implemented.

    My guess would be that we, even though they know that many people would like 1h swords, we won't see them implemented.

    @aloninor the shield thing I got because you had the spear that worked into most of the abilities and attack you had in odessey but the lack of 1 handed swords for the player in Valhalla is just lazy you can't say they are rare then give me great swords bigger than the character and every other AI having a sword I get an axe is a big Viking thing but swords were too they weren't nearly as rare in this period as people thought

    Your right about odyssey. Because of the spear they had chosen not to. Choice btw being the key word there. 1 handers were in this game, screen shots of Avor are out there with a sword sheathed to his hip. If its a design choice its a silly one that makes 0 sense. And I've heard " swords were to expensive back then". Okay, Then I shall just whip out my massive greatsword and prove that hog wash. It will take a while I predict but they will rectify this in a future dlc or update.

    @fruitloops3000 I'd just like to have the option of a sword and shield or mainly an axe and sword would be my preference but swords were expensive but by the point of Vikings in England swords were common with veteran raiders and the more important people in the clan
