Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has its share of challenges, though a few have come to stand out from the rest. Granted, these are not your typical story-based challenges, but rather challenges in ordinary gameplay and world exploration. Two of the most common frustrations involve getting into buildings with barred doors and chasing down floating sides that contain tattoo designs. The good news is that two Valhalla fans have presented some easy solutions to both challenges so that your frustration can be eased a little in the future.
The first is from Reddit user msgkar03, who revealed that one of the abilities you gain earlier in the game can be used to knock down these locked doors immediately. although there is another way for dual wielders.

The second tip for doors was revealed by Reddit user CDProjektIvory, who revealed another capability that could ruin the door in a hit and even a possible solution if you don’t have it yet.
CDProjektIvory wrote “So I’m not sure how many people might know this, or if this was actually a post that someone else might have made before, but I thought I would just share it anyway as it was a discovery , I did a while ago and thought it might help some people 🙂
So if you have the Incendiary Powder Trap capability, you can use it to shoot an explosive arrow at the barred door, and the explosion should cause it to break and open for you.
However, if you do not have the ability, you can also use explosive jars as long as you put it next to the door and shoot it or get a good throw on the door!
Hopefully this will help some of you if you might be busy getting certain things without having to wait 🙂 “
Now that’s good and good, you say, but what about chasing the outrageous floating sides? Well, Msgkar03 you have covered there too, this time with a different ability.
Msgkar03 wrote “Floating pages Having trouble catching up with the floating pages? Use the Blinding Rush ability to slow everything down, so just go and grab it before it even starts moving.”
The ability is found by discovering the Book of Knowledge in East Anglia, specifically at the ruined tower.
These should help a little in your search and we will keep you updated on more tips and tricks when we see them.
