How to unlock doors in A Cruel Destiny
One of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s first missions is to attack Kjotve Fortress and travel to Gorm. You will attack a fortress with Sigurd and head to the innermost part of the castle. For two parts of this quest, you have to unlock an inner door and a final door, but it can be a bit difficult to figure out how to do it. Here’s how to unlock the doors in A Cruel Destiny in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: how to unlock the doors in A Cruel Destiny
There are two sets of doors that you need to unlock for the A Cruel Destiny quest: the outer doors and the final doors.
How to unlock the outer door
The doors can only unlock from the inside, so you have to climb the wall and head to the other side. Fortunately, your Viking brothers brought ladders to help climb the wall. Climb the ladder and descend. There are a lot of enemies inside, so be prepared for battle.
After clearing a path, head for the gates. As you approach the door, you should notice a large slab of wood barricading the door. Use your melee weapon to attack each side to break the block. After that, you can then interact with the door to open it.
How to unlock the final door
Then you have to do something similar and unlock the final door, the last thing between you and Gorm. Head for the door and you will have to take out an unfortunate man, who is a man with a long ax. Jump to the right of the door and you can just climb over the wall. It is not necessary to use special techniques to get inside.
If for some reason it doesn’t allow you to climb the wall, there’s a rope leading inside from a watchtower. You can also climb the tower and pull the rope over the wall if you prefer. Once done, do the same as you did for the first gate. This door has only one side which you must destroy. Destroy it and interact with the door to open it.
From there, head to the main building and face off against Gorm. Be sure to check out all of the wealth locations in A Cruel Destiny. The first two can be easy to miss!
