Isu or “Those Who Came Before” is Assassin’s Creed’s precursor race responsible for creating humans and Pieces of Eden. Moreover, this ancient species of advanced humanoids created many powerful weapons and artifacts.
Isu Weapons that can be obtained in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla are:
- Gungnir, Odin’s Spear
- Mjolnir, Thor’s Hammer
- Excalibur Sword
- Nodens’ Arc
Here’s how you can obtain these legendary, mythical weapons:
1. Gungnir, Odin’s Spear
Odin’s Spear, known as Gungnir, is one of the best weapons that you can use in the game. The weapon once belonged to the Allfather Odin. To obtain it, players will have to wait for the end of the game.
i. Locating Gungnir, Odin’s Spear
Players will have to go to Hordafylke, a level 280 region, to obtain Gungnir in AC Valhalla. Hordafylke is located in the north of Norway.
ii. Obtaining Gungnir, Odin’s Spear
While playing the main campaign’s final quest, “A Brother’s Keeper,” players will go to a cave named Goinnhellir. When inside it, you will come across a split path. Choose the left side, and you will see Gungnir stuck in a wall waiting to be seized.
2. Mjolnir, Thor’s Hammer
Firstly, players will have to equip Thor’s gear, scattered across the sprawling map of AC Valhalla, to be worthy of Thor’s hammer. The gear consists of Breeches, Battle Plate, Gauntlet, Helmet, and Cape.
Here is our complete Thor Armor Gear guide if you want to get your hands on the God of Thunder’s own set.
i. Locating Thor’s Hammer, Mjolnir
Travel to the snow-covered mountains of Hordafylke in Norway to equip Mjolnir. The map above will help you reach the precise location. Once you are near God of Thunder’s own weapon, you will hear a lightning strike.
This is a sign that you are set to wield arguably the most notable weapon of the game.
ii. Obtaining Mjolnir, Thor’s Hammer
Do not forget that it is a must to equip Eivor with all five items that account for Thor’s Armor set. Wearing the complete gear will make Eivor capable of lifting Mjolnir.
All you have to do is interact with it while sporting Thor’s complete cosplay.
3. Excalibur Sword
To get your hands on Excalibur in AC Valhalla, players will have to collect 11 mysterious tablets spread across a vast map.
Out of these 11, 8 tablets are known as the Treasures of Britain. Claiming these will require you to undergo a series of puzzles and parkour activities.
The last three tablets include boss fights against three Zealot members of The Ancient Order. They are Woden, Heike, and Hrothgar, who can be found in different regions of England.
If you are having trouble collecting the 11 tablets, you can read our Excalibur Sword guide to quickly get your hands on the legendary sword of King Arthur.
i. Locating the Excalibur Sword
If you have collected all 11 tablets, all you have to do is place them in their fitting place. That place can be found in northern central Hamtunscire and is known as Stonehenge.
It is recommended that you go there with a power level of 340 as the location brims with bloodthirsty bears.
Upon setting foot here, look for a dense forest in the northeast near a large cave.
ii. Obtaining Excalibur Sword
Head inside the cave and keep moving forward until you spot a large cavity. Dive in it, and you will find a doorway. Keep pushing, and you’ll enter Arthur Pendragon’s camp.
Inside the camp, all you have to do is place every tablet you have collected in its spot. After doing so, you will be able to pull the legendary Excalibur from the ground.
4. Nodens’ Arc
There are four Isu weapons in the game, and the last one is a mythical hunter bow named Nodens’ Arc. It is not heard of much because of a bug that prevents users from obtaining it.
i. Locating Nodens’ Arc
Nodens’ Arc in AC Valhalla can be found in the region of Eurvicscire nearby Brunson Turret. Here, players will find a small island on a lake. On the island, you will notice an iron ore rock shining more than usual. Break the ore rock to get your hands on Nodens’ Arc.
ii. Obtaining Nodens’ Arc
When you try to obtain Nodens’ Arc bow in AC Valhalla, you will have to break an ore that houses it. However, due to a bug, the ore just won’t shatter.
The fix here is to save the game upon reaching the ore and then try to break it using weapons. If it doesn’t break, quit the game and start again by reloading the save you just made.
Keep on doing this, and eventually, you will see the ore smashed into pieces alongside the Nodens’ Arc bow, which can now be picked.
