Assassin's Creed Valhalla - EPIC moves for AGGRESSIVE combat

Let's face it, Vikings aren't exactly the definition of stealth (although in Assassin's Creed Valhalla, stealth is back with a bang).

They are ruthless, brutal, and down-right terrifying in battle, and Ubisoft appears to have gone above and beyond to ensure players get one of the most visceral combat experiences to date.

If you're planning on going in all axes blazing, here's some moves which you should be looking forward to.

Stunning moves, Eivor!

An awesome feature which you'll be able to use in the upcoming game is the ability to stun enemies.

To do this you'll have to completely deplete your enemy's gauge, after which a stun prompt will appear.

GIVE US A HAND MATE: Expect to see more grizzly sights in the game

If you take this option, then sit back, relax, and watch one of the many fatality-like finishers!

To give you an idea of what to expect, we've seen dismembering, impaling, and much, much more.


Rush and Bash

When you're up against it, nothing beats going all-in and using overwhelming strength to dominate your opponent.

Luckily, Eivor has that in spades, and if you use this technique they will rush the unlucky foe, and drive them into anything they can find.

DRIVE-THROUGH: Run down your enemies and send them flying!

The very definition of charging in, this move should help you keep up the momentum as you juggernaut through some of the epic battles in the game.


Axe Fury

This is probably the coolest looking move we've seen, and while it's technically a ranged attack, it looks like it's used best when you find yourself in amongst it!

When you use this skill, Eivor launches some throwing axes at multiple foes, even if they're outside of your screen.

LET ME AXE YOU SOMETHING: A piercing question for sure

This is an awesome move if you find yourself surrounded, and need to remind everyone exactly why they shouldn't come any closer.


Hammer Time

Out of the many, MANY weapons which feature in Assassin's Creed Valhalla, this one is especially brutal.

The hammer can be used in combat, and is very effective when getting up-close and personal.

But it's the special move that's a sight to behold.

When triggered, Eivor will launch into not one, but multiple attacks, in an almost 'Old-Boy' fashion.

Needless to say your foes will be well and truly nailed.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla is landing on our shores on 10 November, and we can't wait!
