Although as a Viking, your major method of attacking enemies should be from the front, stealth attacks can be useful in the restricted areas. However, you won’t be able to use the hidden blade in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla from the beginning of the game. You will only be able to use it once unlocked. In this guide, we will walk you through when the hidden blade is unlocked and how you can use it in AC Valhalla.
AC Valhalla: When is Hidden Blade Unlocked
The hidden blade will be unlocked when two members of the Brotherhood traveling with Sigurd will gift it to your character. After receiving the gift of hidden blade, you can make Eivor sneak behind enemies and stealth attack them.
AC Valhalla: How to Use Hidden Blade
Once unlocked, you can use the hidden blade by moving closer to the enemies’ back and pressing R1 on PS4, RB on Xbox One, and F on PC. Pressing the said button on the respective platform will initiate the attack and Eivor will take down standard armor enemies, but not heavily armored ones.
The buttons to attack heavy armor enemies with the hidden blade are the same, but they cannot be killed with the hidden blade, instead, they can only be attacked with it. Once you have progressed far in the game and unlocked Advanced Assassination Skill, you will be able to take down even heavy armored enemies but with a timing-based attack and not the hidden blade.
That’s everything you need to know about how to use the hidden blade in AC Valhalla. If you are more into the Norse Mythology questline, knowing how to unseal the well in Asgard will let you enter a locked area.
