There are a total of 15 Viking Sword fragments located throughout the game world and they appear as a semi-buried sword hilt with an emanating blue glow that will disappear as the player approaches. Players can approach and interact with these for a short scene showing Shay picking them up.

The swod icons on the map (left) indicate a Viking sword fragment. They appear in-game with a blue glow (right).

After synchronising an area, the Viking sword pieces are marked by a sword icon on the area maps. They can be found in the following areas:

  • New York – King’s Farm (376,315)
  • North Atlantic – Anticosti (197,156)
  • North Atlantic – Fogo (907,067)
  • North Atlantic – Port Menier (297,128)
  • North Atlantic – Harbour Deep (592,347)
  • North Atlantic – Grand-Entrée (374,470)
  • North Atlantic – Burgeo (549,593)
  • North Atlantic – Pearl Island (941,924)
  • North Atlantic – Yarmouth (188,902)
  • River Valley – Lac Eternel (447,362)
  • River Valley – Or-du-Nord (917,163)

  • River Valley – Twin Snake Path (723,673)
  • River Valley – Old Growth Forest (366,643)
  • River Valley – Vieille Carriere (527,053)

Once you have found and collected all 15 fragments, a 'R' marker will appear on your map at Pearl Island (941,924) in the very south-east corner of the North Atlantic. Visiting this marker allows you to find a hidden, buried treasure that will unlock Viking armour for Shay.

Find the buried treasure at Pearl Island (left) for a Viking armour set (right).
