Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Guide: How to Get the Swordfish Great Sword?

Swordfish great sword is an absurd but fun-to-use weapon in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. It is a mythical two-handed weapon belonging to the wolf skill tree. The game may have many legendary weapons to wield, but nothing beats the fun of stabbing and slashing your enemies with a literal swordfish.

If you wish to wield this giant fish against your enemies, get ready for hours of the grind because the swordfish is one of the most demanding weapons to obtain in AC Valhalla. 

The Swordfish great sword can be obtained in Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla by completing all the twenty fishing delivery requests. The requests can be accessed through the fishing hut in Eivor’s Ravensthrope settlement.

1. Steps To Get The Swordfish Great Sword In AC Valhalla

  • Step 1: Build a fishing hut in Ravensthorpe by spending 600 supplies and 45 raw materials. 
  • Step 2: Talk to the young boy present in the fishing hut.
  • Step 3: Select the dialogue option, “I brought you a few things,” to see the fish orders or deliver them.
  • Step 4: Catch the needed fish, and deliver them to the hut.
  • Step 5: Receive valuable reward items, including runes, treasure maps, ingots, and ultimately the precious Swordfish weapon.

Note: You can build the fishing hut only after your settlement has reached level 2.

2. Is Swordfish the strongest greatsword in AC Valhalla?

Unfortunately, the Swordfish is not the strongest greatsword in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. In fact, it is the weakest great sword in the game, but it has a helpful perk, “Heavy hit set fallen enemies on fire.”

Comparing it to the other greatswords in the game, we can see that it lacks serious attack power.

4. How to catch a fish in AC Valhalla?

To catch a fish in AC Valhalla, use the fishing line or shoot it with a ranged weapon.

I. Using a fishing line

Fishing is a fairly entertaining and relaxing task. Locate the fish in the water using Odin’s sight. Equip the fishing line from the action wheel, right-click to aim where you want to throw the line, and then left-click to cast it.

Using a Fishing Line

You will then be able to spot the fish approaching to bite the line by its reflection in the water. Wait for it to grab the line, then control it by using the WASD keys while mashing the spacebar to pull it closer.

II. Shooting the fish with a ranged weapon

I recommend you to hunt the fish by using your bow and arrows. It is a quicker and more practical method. Continuously use Odin’s sight to locate the fish in the water, and shoot them with your bow.
