How to End River Raid in AC Valhalla – How to Exit River Raid & Return to Ravensthorpe

To end the river raid in AC Valhalla and return to Ravensthorpe, the first step is to enter the Raid Status menu. You know, the one where you see all your warriors, the amount of loot you can get, etc. You access this menu by pressing the Down arrow on your d-pad on PlayStation, and presumably on Xbox, too; I’m not sure what the button is on PC. Let us know in the comments. Once in the radial menu, select the icon in the upper left, aka the one that looks like a house.

To exit the AC Valhalla river raid, when you highlight the house icon, it’ll say Return to Settlement, so the game really lets you know everything you need. So, click on the icon, and another menu will pop up, asking you to confirm whether you want to exit. Select Yes. The game will then show you a summary of your progress, so just hit Close. That will end the AC Valhalla river raid and return you to Ravensthorpe.

Use the Return to Settlement option

So, that’s how you leave and end a river raid in AC Valhalla. If you have any other questions about the raids, we’ve got a number of other guides on the subject. For example, we’ve written River Raid New Abilities – Shoulder Bash, Battlecry, Berserker Trap, and Saint George Armor, and more. I think you might find them helpful.

If you need help with anything else in the game, we've got a metric ton of other guides for you to check out. For example, we've written AC Valhalla Hidden Ones Armor Set Locations - Ratae Bureau Armor & Londinium Bureau Key for quest A Brief History of The Hidden Ones, that will reward you with the Hidden Ones armor. We can also help with whether you want to let Rued Live or Die - Kill or Spare Rued Choice Consequences, or who to give silver to in AC Valhalla War Weary quest , and a well hidden AC Valhalla Comb location for Bil Maiden's Missive Rygjafylke World Event. Puzzle that caused us big problems was Unseal The Well during the quest Well Traveled. And, yes, we do have many more coming, stay tuned.

    The house not there ?

      They missed a big step: You have to be in control of your longship to be able to access the option to leave.

        Thank you so much dude. You saved my life and my loot.

      2. E

        You’re the s**t bro

  2. K

    To enter the Raid Status menu on a PC, press “G”.

  3. W

    Thank you, I must be really stupid. I have done it 3 times, filled the boat till I could take no more, found the armor and then kept sailing around trying to get out. Eventually just quit the game and lost all I accomplished and the answer was so simple.

  4. T

    I can’t get back to the settlement because it’s says not currently available. And I don’t know what’s happening

    1. S

      Same. It’s really annoying and I’m not a noob. It legit says currently not available and won’t allow me to leave. I felt I was going crazy until I saw your comment because I can’t find anything on it anywhere

    2. B

      You have to get out of striking distance. lf it still says to raid then you’re not far enough from enemy territory

      1. L

        Thank you!!! I was going nuts trying to get out and just saw your comment to get “out of raid range”. Many thanks!

  5. A

    Me too, It sais “currently not avaiable”. Could you solve the problem?

      Same here. Only thing I can think of is that I ran out of space so I can’t get the last supply crate… so maybe it still thinks I’m “in a raid.” Even going to the far side of the map in a ship doesn’t work. Still has the option as “not available.”

    same as taylor samnso and andy it says currently unavaliable anyone figured it out ?

    1. A

      I’m having the same exact issue myself. I’m definitely well out of “Raid/striking” distance and still its saying “not currently available”
      I’m about to rage.

  7. J

    I’m having the same issue. From the time I started the raid I had the red bar indicating I was in a conflict area. I traveled the whole map by boat and even walked the outskirts of the map, the red bar never went away. I can click on the return to home icon, I can’t save, I can’t use the atlas. My next option is to say f-it. Go back to a previous save and never to raids again.

    When I ran into trouble, I pressed the button for “codex” which I set as “P” on my keyboard. I held it down until the big circle map of icons came up, then pressed the one that looked like “home”. It said “must release button” so I stopped pushing “P” and it let me exit. But like most of you above, I had maxed out forien supplies and was raiding an Army stronghold at the time, which still had two treasures left. So I couldn’t save, couldn’t leave the area far enough to stop the raid.

    Here’s what I did to find it. I suggest this, if my “P” or “codex” doesn’t work. Just go through the QWERTY keyboard one key at a time, push and hold. Either another screen will pop up, and you close, or nothing happens. Just go to next key until you find it, then mark it down on your commands cheat sheet.

    I don’t know if the suggestion above is true or not, but I did have to be in control of the boat in order to get the menu….. Hope this helps.

  9. J

    Same problem as the rest of you. No matter what I did would not let me return to my settlement. I just had to reload an earlier save and I will not be going on anymore river raids. That is so stupid and annoying

  10. G

    I had to redo mine but I think there’s an order on which small islands to raid for the first one. I took the one in the beginning then the next one on the right.

    G is right you need to do the first farm on the right before anywhere else for the raid to work properly but you can get round it if you have only raided 1 other place you can go back and raid the first farm and you will then have the return to settlement option enabled in the radial menu

  12. S

    To return to the settlement you must complete the mini quest shown on the left hand side of screen, once completed the option will come available and you can return

  13. T

    All you have to do is keep raiding. Eventually the guy that goes with you will say he is ready to go back to ravensthorpe. At that point you need to command the ship then the home icon will be available.

  14. L

    I had the same. All you need to do is go back to the very first “Keats farm” one and raid it. I skipped it on my first one. As long as you go back after and raid it then the guy will say he has had enough and wants to go back to settlement. That then opens the option up by pressing the down button

  15. B

    Hold down on the D-pad and click return to settlement

    For those of you that the game won’t let leave, just go back to the first camp and complete it. It will let you finish it even if you have a full ship. Don’t start over Lolol
