How to Defeat Basim in AC Valhalla (Basim Boss Fight)
You can defeat Basim in this boss fight in different stages. For that, you must know during which moments to attack him and which areas to hit. When Basim attacks you with his sword, make sure that you do the following things in Phase 1:

- Dodge his ranged attacks and smoke bombs.
- He will run on the upper ledge and jump on you. Dodge it and get some strikes in while also maintaining your health.

When it stops moving, quickly shoot arrows at him. If you have dealt enough damage, you will get the prompt to perform a Stun Attack.
Go for it and stun him. After that you will get a cutscene where Basim will use a smoke bomb and then tries to escape. You must follow him, climb structures, jump over gaps, collect food items for health and eventually you will come across another cutscene.
