AC Valhalla Kill or Spare Goodwin Choice – What to Do?


Should you kill or spare Goodwin in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla? The answer is that it doesn’t matter because he will die anyway. The only impact your decision makes is that the kind of death differs.

  • I will kill you: When you choose this option, Eivor will end up killing Goodwin with a dagger.
  • I can still use you yet: Upon choosing this option, Eivor says “I will use you, as you used me. You will lead us to your sparrow-king.” Goodwin replies that he cannot allow that and slits his own throat. He decides that killing himself is better than revealing information after being captured.

Does this choice affect your story ending?

It does not change the story’s ending. The choice you make will only affect Goodwin’s death so go ahead and choose whichever option you prefer. If you think he deserves to die because he’s a friend gone bad, choose that one. In case you want to keep him alive, you will see that it doesn’t really work.
