AC Valhalla: How to release the naval chain in The Swan-Road Home

Eivor and Sigurd travel to England and encounter a chain blocking their path. It’s your job as Eivor to invade the camp and unblock the river as stealthily as possible. Figuring out how to deal with the chain is simple, but you may overlook it if you miss a part of the dialogue. Here’s how to release the naval chain in The Swan-Road Home quest in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

While sailing down the river, Sigurd notices the way forward is blocked by a chain. To get through, you must figure out how to remove it. Unfortunately, it’s a little too thick for axes to cut through. 

AC Valhalla: How to release the naval chain in The Swan-Road Home

Exit the boat and make your way towards the camp. You can enter stealthily or by brute force. The decision is up to you, as it always is in Assassin’s Creed. Once you take out the guards or sneak your way in, approach the river from the camp’s inner walls. Beforehand, you can loot a few supplies to take with you.

Scale the wall and look down over the river. Beneath you, a pulley system and a few levers keep the chain held up across the river. Jump down to the area where the chain meets the wooden device, and inspect its sides with your bow. 

The device’s sides should light up red, which lets you know you can destroy them. Pull out your bow and shoot both sides. In doing so, you will release the naval chain for The Swan-Road Home quest in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. There are quite a few quests like this throughout the story, so you can always be sure to look out for some destructible objects.
