Gear is a type of Collectible in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (ACV). This guide shows where to find all Gear Locations in AC Valhalla (Weapons, Armor, Shields). They are needed for the Completionist All the Way trophy or achievement (100% Completion).
Gear count as Wealth Collectibles. On the world map they are marked by this icon: . You can still access all regions after the story to find them.

Hey PowerPyx !
Actually, on Ubi Connect, we have a challenge with this : “Wield the Swordfish.”
Did you find any weapon with this name ?
I have read that you get it by completing all fish deliveries
Would also like to know if you found the Swordfish
Haven’t found it yet.
This guide says “that is all the gear in the game, but you are missing an entire section for “Ledecestrescire” and there is one there I can’t figure out how to get to at “Offchurch”
I’m not sure what you mean. All Gear Wealth Chests from Ledecestrescire (and all other regions) are in this guide 🙂
hi do you find the swordfish to complete the challenges?
nobody knows actually :/
About Swordfish : We need to clean all the fishing quest in the fishing hut. 🙂
Herp Derp says
The one in Calleva Outpost is Drekar Shield. You get Vordr’s Bite from a hunting challenge.
