I can't play the quest Bloody Welcome. It crashes constantly, mostly outside the church but also inside it.
This happens on versions 1.1.1 and 1.1.2.

Hello there @ruffeli! Welcome to the forums
I'm sorry to hear that you're encountering crashes in-game. When these crashes happen, do you get any error messages at all?
If you have not already, please can you check out these PC troubleshooting steps? In particular, I'd recommend verifying your game files to ensure that there's none missing or corrupted that could be causing the crash.
The game always crashed to desktop without error message and uplay wanted to send a crash report.
So, I did the Verify game files from uplay. Then I shutdown RivaTunerStatisticServer, MSI Afterburner and SteelSeries Engine from the background.
When I started the game next time, Uplay seemed to install VCRedist_2019 or something first, I didn't manage to see it properly. After that, there was no more crashes and I managed to play through the Bloody Welcome quest and a couple of side quests too without any crashes.
Problem solved, I guess, although I'm not entirely sure what helped. Probably the Verify game files option, as uplay installed something new after that.
Oh man, it was too early to celebrate.
The crashes continued! After my last session I wrote that everything seemed to work. How wrong I was!
Now when I tried to play, the game crashed after 2 minutes of playing, twice. There really doesn't seem to be any reason for crashes. It might crash four times today and work perfectly tomorrow. I don't get it.
So, I think I finally solved the reason for crashes.
It was Rivatuner Statistics Server. The RTSS recently started giving error message about "Some system components cannot be hooked right now." This error message started popping up after Windows update.
I thought that closing the software would really close it but Task Manager revealed that it still autostarted itself. This prevented the updating of the RTSS, too, as the update wouldn't finish if RTSS was running.
After disabling the "autostart with windows" from RTSS I managed to update the RTSS to the latest Beta version, which has fixed the "Some system components cannot be hooked right now." error message. This seems to have fixed the crashing of AC Valhalla, too.

I am playing on whatever the current version is as of this post. I am still experiencing this same issue during this mission. My game just closes with no indication as to why. The mission is in a very dense area with a lot of enemy NPCs and a lot of foliage. The mission also occurs during what seems like a hurricane. I was crashing 2 mins into the mission every time without fail. I got through the mission by turning all of my graphics settings down as low as they would go. Posting this mainly to help anyone that might still be experiencing this issue.
