Assassin’s Creed Valhalla contains a variety of bows to use, as well as a variety of arrows and ammunition. However, the game isn’t clear about the difference between them, nor how to change arrows on the fly as you battle across England. Fortunately, we’ll show you how to change arrows and ammunition for your bow as you play through Valhalla, and what the advantages of each one are.
How to Change Arrows in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
To change arrows in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla… you can’t. Odd as it sounds, each arrow type is actually attached to the three varieties of bow you can get! So hunter arrows only work for hunter bows, light arrows for light bows and predator arrows for predator bows.
It’s the bows themselves that you change in your inventory menu, choosing which one you have ready to draw at any time. It’s similar to ammunition for guns in most games, but Valhalla starts you off with only one of the bows, so for a while you won’t be able to use the other two kinds of arrows that you find. The best thing you can do is start scavenging battlegrounds or heading to merchants to find some other bows for you to slot those arrows into.
Arrow and Bow Types Explained
The three different kinds of arrows in this game each serve a different purpose, along with the bows they’re used for. You should honestly have all three on you at all times, but which one you use most will be down to personal preference.
- Light Bows/Arrows: Able to fire quickly in combat, though each shot doesn’t do huge damage. Short range, quick use.
- Hunter Bows/Arrows: A medium kind of bow that can be drawn and shot averagely fast. Not too easy to use in combat, but does much higher damage than the light bow. An “all-rounder” choice.
- Predator Bows/Arrows: The sniper rifle of bows: really long draw time, but with a high damage and accuracy.
Best Bow Type
The best bow is really a matter of personal preference, as well as playstyle - the predator bow is better for stealth and the light bow is better for open combat, etc. You should probably get used to changing them on the fly from your inventory and preparing for whatever circumstances are coming up.
