The best weapons in Assassin’s Creed Origins are the ones that suit your play style. If you prefer heavy weapons, that are slow to swing but pack a punch, you’ll probably want an axe. If you value being able to slash quickly, you’ll go with dual blades. That being said, some weapons definitely have advantages over others. Cursed weapons are one of those – they reward your agility with increased damage. You’ll be able to kill enemies much faster, but you’ll be more exposed yourself. Since they’re pretty hard to come by, we’ve decided to write this guide to show you how to get cursed weapons in AC Origins.
If you’re not familiar with them, cursed weapons increase your damage but reduce your health. Each one has doubled damage compared to a basic variant, but it also lowers your max health to one third of its current value. In other words, you’ll be a glass cannon. Do not get hit.

You’ll have to find a certain stall in the Valley Market, talk to a young peddler and help her mother deal with bandits. She’ll reward you with the sword in question.
