Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players have discovered a secret and powerful bow hidden in a pile of rocks, but it was actually not the intended way for it to be found, according to the developer. YouTuber JorRaptor posted a video on how to find it, but Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Narrative Director Darby McDevitt said that no one has discovered the proper way to obtain it in the game:
FYI this is a clever brute force hack, not the "proper” way to get this bow. There is an “in world” way to achieve it. But I suppose this works for an Any% Speedrun. 😎

The secret bow is an extremely powerful bow made by the ancient Isu, the alien gods of Assassin’s Creed lore. It’s called Nodens’ Arc, which is a reference to the ancient Celtic god of hunting, healing, and dogs.
