An interesting skill in "Assassin’s Creed Valhalla" that players might want to pick up early on is the ability to use Explosive Arrows. However, unlike in the previous "Assassin’s Creed" installments, the Explosive Arrows cannot be crafted, but should be acquired.

Players, who are looking for effective ways to get the Explosive Arrows ability, can check out these tips and tricks.

How to achieve the Explosive Arrows

"Assassin’s Creed Valhalla" players who want to use Explosive Arrows should track down the Incendiary Powder Trap skill. It is available in the early part of the game and is one of the must-haves among veteran players of the game.

Explosive Arrows are more effective for exploration than they are in combat. The Incendiary Powder Trap is a skill that allows fired shots from the player’s bow to cause massive damage in a wide area. 

Explosive Arrows are useful in breaking obstacles that could otherwise require players to look for an explosive pot. The ability comes in handy, especially when players want to save a lot of time. Explosive Arrows could be upgraded for a second time too. While this is not an overpowered ability, it will make Eivor’s exploration and adventure easier.

How to get Incendiary Powder Trap

"Assassin’s Creed Valhalla" players should find the Incendiary Powder Trap Book of Knowledge to access the Explosive Arrows ability. For this, they need to go to the City of Walden in Grantebridgescire. The book looks like a page from a book that features a viking rune on it.

Unlike other Books of Knowledge in "Assassin’s Creed Valhalla," the Incendiary Powder Trap is just sitting in the open. Players can simply walk into the place and get it after defeating several enemies. For players looking for a second Explosive Arrows upgrade, they can find the second Incendiary Powder Trap Book of Knowledge in the region of Suthsexe.

"Assassin’s Creed Valhalla" is now available in various gaming platforms. Gamers can enjoy it on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. There is a video tutorial below for a visual explanation on how to achieve Explosive Arrows ability in the game.
