AC Valhalla Offchurch Gear: How to Get the Gear Behind the Locked Door

Recently, many players exploring the Offchurch location in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla have shown their disappointment in the gameplay because of a specific gear locked behind an impenetrable door in this old crypt, making it impossible to obtain. This particular door is located at the very end of this crypt. 

If you are also one of the players facing this issue, it is more than likely that you have encountered the Offchurch crypt earlier than the game’s developers intended for you to. You can only interact with the locked door during the main storyline quest, Tilting the Balance.
