How to Get Skadi's Blade in AC Valhalla Mastery Challenge Update

The AC Valhalla Skadi’s Blade is a new weapon that you can get in the Mastery Challenge update, as soon as you figure out how to. The Ubisoft Connect challenges menu tells you that you have to play the Mastery Challenges to get the Skadi’s Blade axe in Assassins Creed Valhalla, but that is way too vague. As it happens, the system to unlock the new weapon is actually fairly simple. We’ll lay it all out for you in our How to Get Skadi’s Blade in AC Valhalla Mastery Challenge Update guide.

How to Get AC Valhalla Skadi’s Blade in Mastery Challenge Update

To get Skadi’s Blade in the AC Valhalla Mastery Challenge update, the first step is to get one gold medal in any of the Mastery Challenges. Absolutely any will do. I recommend doing the very first Bear Trial in Wenlocan Outpost, in because it’s pretty much the easiest. The only trick here is to leave at least one of the targets (enemies with the green symbol) for last. That way, you can eliminate every enemy to rack up the points, and then finish it all off by killing the last target. However, as I’ve said, any trial will do, so if you’re more comfortable in archery or stealth, be my guest.

Once you earn that one gold medal, go into the main menu, the one in which you can save or load or exit your game. Find the Ubisoft Connect option, and select it. Click on the Challenges button and find the one called “The Joy of Killing – Play the Mastery Challenge game mode.” Claim the reward to receive your new axe. That’s how to get Skadi’s Blade in the AC Valhalla Mastery Challenge update. Honestly, the truly biggest stumbling block here is the description of the challenge, because it’s far too vague. All you truly need is that one gold medal, as it turns out.
