The fictional story of AC Valhalla revolves around a Viking called Eivor Varinsdottir, and it takes place during the Viking expansion of the British Isles. Since the game features in-depth gear customization, players have also been given the liberty to choose the game’s protagonist as a male or a female lead. Regardless of gender, a Viking remains headstrong and never allows others to insult them. However, AC Valhalla flyting activities are fun, Viking-rap-like challenges involving an opponent throwing insults on Eivor. Players are given options to respond to the abuses and beat opponents not by fist’s might but by rhythmatic and witty responses.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the twelfth game in the long-running series of Assassin’s Creed games. Unlike the early games in the installment, AC Valhalla adopts RPG elements and blends this element very well into character gear and enemy health bar levels. There are also certain unique skills that unlock after you find the Book of Knowledge scattered throughout the map.
If you are new to the game and jumping into the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you may want to toggle all the right options for high FPS. Additionally, it is not just about ticking all the boxes while browsing the display settings to expect better image quality. AC Valhalla is a GPU-intensive game and is the first in its franchise that uses DX12 API. So, for the best display, high fps, and excellent graphics quality, read our AC Valhalla PC Settings guide here.

What is Flyting In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
As mentioned earlier, flyting is the Viking version of the rap battle. Your opponent opens up the dialogues in a rhythmatic flair, and you (Eivor) have to respond back with befitting words in a charming voice. Each reply you give to your opponent may or may not win the duel for you. However, you can always redo this mini-game if you lose the first time by not giving the right responses. In any case, we have compiled here a list of opponent’s openings and Eivor’s responses towards all 16 flyting challenges in AC Valhalla. If you go with the word’s choices we mentioned above, you will win the duels.
Additionally, you can place bets before initiating a flyting duel. You can bet for 100 silver as a starter or raise the stakes to 150 or 200 silver. The difficulty of rap-battle a.k.a flyting is unaffected by the higher or lower bet placement. However, you bag in double the wagered amount before triggering the duel if you win the bet. So, start your journey to becoming the most charismatic Viking by winning the flyting activities.
