Assassin’s Creed Valhalla | Flyting Answers

By James Billcliffe, Tuesday, 10 November 2020 14:06 GMT

In the world of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the most dangerous barbs are made with words, not arrows. Flyting is the medieval practice of disparaging wordplay, essentially a Viking rap-battle, where you trade rhyming insults with your opponent in verse.

It’s one of the sillier diversions in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but an underrated important one. Winning flyting matches improves your character’s charisma, which unlocks different dialogue options later down the line.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Flyting tips

The basics of flyting are easy: insult your opponent as callously as possible, while making sure it rhymes with what has already been said.

However, to score the most injuriously witty retort you need to also match the beat of what’s been said (not say too much or too little), and match the meaning of the original insult. There’s no skill in saying something random.

For example, if your opponent calls you stupid, then you should look for a reply which insults their intelligence too.

With this in mind, we’ve collated all of the “correct” answers to the early flyting matches in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. While you are timed in your responses, if you have this open when you enter a match there’s more than enough time to look at the answers and pick the right one.
