Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: How to Raid

Raiding is an essential part of the Viking era, and of course, in a game all about Vikings, Raiding is an important mechanic in Assassin's Creed Valhalla to gain resources to upgrade your settlement in England! We hope you are ready to become Eivor, a fearless vicious warrior, feasting his eyes on England for the sake of the clan!

Assassin's Creed Valhalla How to Raid

To raid in Assassin's Creed Valhalla, you must first reach England and are beginning to build your settlement. You'll be tasked with procuring materials and supplies to upgrade it, and this is where raids come into play.

To begin a raid, you must locate on the map an icon with 2 red axes crossed; these are the areas that you can raid. However, you can only start a raid on your longboat, you can head to these areas on foot, but you must be in a longboat to start. When you are near a raid, press the button prompt; once you reach the shore, Eivor will sound the battle horn, and all of your forces will charge headfirst Viking style into battle.

Completing a raid is very simple. All you have to do is kill everyone in the area and loot everything that you can! Once the fighting is beginning to slow down, you'll notice on your HUD they are numerous gold dots; these dots are things you can loot! Sometimes these dots are hidden behind locked doors; however, the keys can be located on a person, a corpse, or just somewhere in the area. Scan the area, and you'll find the key easily!

Once those two objectives are fulfilled, albeit quite easily as Viking warriors are a force to be reckoned with. By completing a raid, you'll be awarded additional resources and materials - Carbon Ingot, Opal, Leather, Iron Ore, Fabric, Nickel Ingot pus more. These items are essential for growing your own settlement, especially Silver, Supplies, and Raw Materials. Raiding is one of the quickest ways to earn money.

Raiding is a quick, surefire way to always gain a quick blast of these materials that you need! Raiding is also part of the pseudo- multiplayer aspect of the game, as you can loan other gamers mercenaries and use them in your raiding party. This means that other players can use your mercenary, and then they can bring home rewards through battle.
