Dual Wielding in Combat

In Assassin's Creed Valhalla, you aren't limited to using just one weapon to fight your battles. From when the game first submerges you into combat, Dual Wielding weapons will be available to you as soon as you get access to another axe.

Dual Wielding is a good way of dealing quick damage against enemies, and doesn't take away from being able to parry your enemy's blows.

How to Dual Wield Heavy Weapons

In the early portions of the game, you'll begin to find weapons that require two hands to wield them. This removes the ability to dual wield, even if you pair that Heavy Weapon up with a lighter, one-handed one.

However, there is a skill in the game that allows you to pair both Heavy Weapons together, or one Heavy Weapon and one lighter one.

The Heavy Dual Wield skill can be found in the red colored Bear Skills section of the Skill Tree. As advertised, it allows you to dual wield heavy weapons in combat.

In favor of having more damage per hit, dual wielding heavy weapons tends to slow your strikes against enemies, so timing is key when using this skill.

Combo Wielding

Instead of just Dual Wielding either Heavy Weapons or lighter ones, you can go ahead and dual wield both if you have the Heavy Dual Wield skill.

Wielding a Heavy or Light weapon can be done in either hand; having a Heavy Weapon on your left hand and a Light weapon on your right would greatly diminish the benefit of speed that having a light weapon would bring.
