While battling the legendary Elk of Bloody Peaks in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, a player quickly found themselves thrown across the map.
By fighting Assassin’s Creed Valhallait’s Elk of Bloody Peaks, one player died after being effortlessly knocked across the open world map. The momentum of bloody peaks in AC Valhalla is one of the many legendary animals in the title. It’s also probably the easiest to defeat, given that this particular creature spawns in the starting area of Rygjafylke.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla features nine different legendary beasts in total, including Black Shuck, Corpse Feeders, Aelfred’s Battle Cattle, and Wildcats of the Wield. A few of them prove to be quite formidable by offering high-level boss encounters that require Eivor to use all of his skills and abilities. Once each beefy beast falls under Eivor’s blade, the player must visit the Hunter’s Hut he built in Ravensthorpe to claim the reward that awaits – which can range from a unique Predator Bow to a special ax. On some occasions, however, unfortunate AC Valhalla glitches can turn a player’s attempt to defeat legendary creatures into a disastrous affair.
Recently, Reddit user exiledlemon shared gameplay footage of their fight against the legendary Elk of Bloody Peak in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Despite reducing the beast to less than half its health bar, the user ultimately misses their chance for victory. It’s not their fault, though. As seen in the video, the massive elk lands such a devastating blow that it hooks Eivor with its antlers, then easily throws the Viking warrior across the map. Watch the scene in the post linked below:
As other Redditors have noted in the thread, the momentum’s powerful throwing ability is actually a well-known Assassin’s Creed Valhalla problem that the developers of Ubisoft have not yet corrected. Considering how much time has passed since the open-world title launched in November 2020, it looks like this particular bug won’t be leaving the game anytime soon either.
AC Valhalla recently came back into the conversation thanks to the release of Dawn of Ragnarök earlier this month. The solid $40 expansion kicks off the game’s second year of post-launch support, allowing fans to step back into the role of Odin. In Dawn of Ragnarok, the Allfather ventures into the dwarven kingdom of Svartalfheim in search of his kidnapped son, Baldr. What else Ubisoft has planned for this year of content support remains to be seen, but reviews of the latest expansion suggest it’s at least off to a good start.
