This powerful Assassin's Creed Valhalla weapon is hidden in a pile of magic rocks

Rock bottom.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla players have discovered a secret powerful weapon hidden in a pile of rocks. Well. Kind of.

The secret Nodens' Isu Arc bow unlocks for players who repeatedly hit a small pile of rocks near Brunson Turret in Northumbria. In the lake to the north, there's a small island, and on there, you'll find the rock ore pile you need.

YouTuber JorRaptor takes you through the steps right here (thanks, Kotaku) and it's been verified now by a number of players:

Hit the rocks a few times - you'll notice it doesn't break as others do - and then save and reload your game. Rinse and repeat until you load in to find the rock pile is now broken, and Nodens' Arc Hunter Bow should pop up on the side of the screen.

Whether or not this is intentional remains to be seen (I suspect not), so if you're keen, head there now and grab it before Ubisoft patch it out.

ICYMI, Ubisoft recently released a big bug-squashing update for Assassin's Creed Valhalla. The game's 1.1.1 update is light on new features but heavy on fixes, with dozens of common issues crossed off.

Among those that stood out for Tom in a quick scan down its very long patch notes are solutions to the bug experienced by numerous people which saw them permanently stuck in their Halloween-esque Mari Lwyd disguise even after completing that quest arc. Ubisoft Connect achievements have also been fixed, and should correctly unlock the next time you perform any achievement-related action past the unlock condition.

Next up for Valhalla is a new river raiding mode and a levelling system for your Jomsvikings, due to arrive in February.
