Boss Strategies: How to Beat Goodwin

  • Attacking Goodwin from the front can be difficult because his heavy shield can deflect most attacks.
  • Shooting his heavy shield with a charged arrow from a hunter bow can knock him off-balance.
  • Watch out for the long-reaching attacks of his Great Sword.
  • Always be prepared to dodge out of his heavy lunging attack. This deals heavy damage and may open you up to other attack combos.
  • Goodwin can ignite his Great Sword on fire. Anticipate this throughout the fight.

Kill or Spare Goodwin?

Both choices ultimately lead to Goodwin's death. The difference is how Goodwin will die after the boss fight.

Refer to the table below for the outcomes of each decision:

Dialogue Option Result
"I will kill you." Eivor will stab Goodwin with a dagger.
"I can still use you yet." Goodwin will slit his own throat to avoid being captured and interrogated by the Danes.
