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.
1. How To Get The Gear Behind The Locked Door Of Offchurch?
Accept Tilting the Balance quest, then reach the Offchurch and disable King Burgred hiding in the locked room to collect the Offchurch gear.
Upon reaching the Offchurch, you will find it packed with enemies. Use Odin’s Sight to locate the guard with a key symbol over his head at the locked front entrance of the crypt.
Take the back entrance and reach the end of the Offchurch crypt. Kill the enemy holding the key and loot it from his body. Open the locked door and disable King Burgred in a fight, then collect all the items in the room, including the gear and the Sepulcher Axe.
To reach the locked door, walk straight into the crypt from the back entrance till you arrive at the primary chamber. Turn right from here, and you will find the guard holding the key to the locked door. The guard will be standing right next to the room in which King Burgred is hiding.
