Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Guide: Obtaining the Bayonet Great Sword!

Great Swords are heavy melee weapons in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that inflict tremendous bone-breaking damage to the enemy with each strike. Though slow, these weapons are a fan-favorite just because of the sheer damage they do to the hordes of enemies. One unique great sword in AC Valhalla is the Bayonet Sword.

Bayonet Sword is an odd-looking wolf class mythical great sword that players can use to obliterate their enemies in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. As the name implies, the sword is basically a musket rifle with a bayonet attached to it. The weapon may look ridiculous for a “sword,” but it packs one hell of a punch. 

1. How to Get the Bayonet Sword in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla?

The Bayonet Sword can be purchased from Reda’s Shop for 120 Opals or from the “Modern Day Pack” available in the in-game Ubisoft store of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for 1500 Helix Credits. 

Unfortunately, it is impossible to claim this great sword in the game by completing some challenging quests, solving mysteries, or exploring every nook and cranny of the vast Viking world!

2. Buying the Bayonet Sword from Reda’s Shop

To buy the Bayonet sword from Reda, approach him at his shop in Ravensthorpe and select the first option (see shop), which will display all the items Reda is selling. Look for the Bayonet sword, choose and purchase it for 120 Opals.

Opals are an in-game currency that can be collected from all over the game’s map and used only in Reda’s shop.

Reda is a “young-looking” merchant in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla whose shop can only be found in the Ravensthorpe settlement after the settlement has reached at least rank 2. 

Keep in mind that items in Reda’s shop reset daily and weekly, so if you cannot find the bayonet sword in his shop, wait for the shop to reset and look for it again the following week.  If you cannot wait that long to get your hands on the bayonet sword, buy it from the in-game store, but it will cost you real money!

3. Buying the Bayonet Sword from the In-Game Store

The Bayonet sword can be purchased from the in-game store of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla by spending 1500 Helix Credits. To purchase the bayonet sword, follow these steps:

  • Open the Main Menu while playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
  • Go to Store, and open the Packs section.
  • Find the Modern Day pack and buy it.

The Modern Day pack offers several gear pieces and skins to the players along with the Bayonet Sword. It contains:

I. Armor

  • Modern Day Helmet
  • Modern Day Disguise
  • Modern Day Armor
  • Modern Day Bracers
  • Modern Day Pants

II. Weapons

  • Bayonet Sword
  • Anti-riot Shield

III. Mount

  • Mechadilfari

IV. Raven Skin

  • Droninn

4. Is Bayonet Sword any Good?

Bayonet Sword is a low/mid-tier great sword in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. It is suitable for dealing with weak enemies. The sword’s unique perk staggers the enemies in an area after hitting an enemy with a special attack, which can be quite useful.

Note: The stats mentioned here are for a completely upgraded (10/10) Bayonet Sword.

To be blunt, it is not the best weapon out there, not even close. The weapon’s perk is unique and interesting, but it is inefficient against strong opponents in a 1v1 scenario. The sword is nothing out of the ordinary aside from its looks. It is definitely not worth spending 1500 Helix Credits if you just want the sword. 

5. Can you Shoot the Bayonet Sword in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla?

Players cannot shoot the Bayonet Sword in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Eivor is a Viking from the 9th century and has no knowledge of modern weaponry, thus a “great sword.” 

The weapon’s description reads as: “You still cannot figure out the usefulness of the odd handle of this sword, but its blade is unbelievably sharp.” By the “odd handle,” they mean the entire crazy rifle. 

I guess it would have been a different story altogether, only if Eivor knew how to fire the Musket and gun down his enemies!

6. How to Get Helix Credits in AC Valhalla?

To purchase Helix Credits, players will have to spend real money via microtransactions.
