What are River Raids?

River Raids is the new replayable game mode in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. In this game mode, you will get to raid multiple new locations to get more weapons, armor, longship cosmetics and more!

How to Start River Raids?

In order to start the River Raids, you need to go to the small nearby dock southeast of Ravensthorpe and watch a cutscene there regarding the River Raids.

After watching the cutscene there, talk to Vagn at the new dock to officially start the River Raids.

Select A River

River Raid Rewards

Foreign Supplies

In militarized areas and monasteries, you'll find areas that have metal chests. These contain Foreign Supplies, a new separate currency that you use to buy upgrades from Vagn.


AC Valhalla Vagn Shop
You can use Foreign Supplies to buy unique Longship customizations or tattoos from Vagn.

Longship Upgrades

AC Valhalla Upgrade Foreign Supply Cargo
At the start, you can only take 200 foreign supplies each raid, meaning once you hit that limit you have to return to Ravensthorpe if you want to bring back more supplies.

You can upgrade the amount of supplies you can carry using Foreign Supplies in the Longship Customization Menu.

Jomsviking Hall

AC Valhalla Jomsviking Hall

There will be a new building available at Ravensthorpe once you finish the tutorial mission for the River Raids called the Jomsviking Hall. Here you can hire Jomsvikings, and upgrading this hall allows you to get more Jomsvikings to choose from.

To build and upgrade the Jomsviking Hall, you require Foreign Supplies as well.

These supplies give you and each of your Jomsvikings one ration. Your Jomsvikings will use rations when they are low on health, and you can use one ration to revive a downed Jomsviking.

If a Jomsviking is downed during a River Raid and not revived on time, they will need to rest and will be unable to join the next River Raid.


There are seven pieces of gear relating to the new saga, the Saga of Saint George. The armor and shield are found in the same chests as Foreign Supplies, whereas the sword is found by defeating a Champion in the third river. To learn how to get them, check out their pages down below!
