Special thanks to Ubisoft for sponsoring this video!
Check out Assassin's Creed Valhalla, available November 10th here ►
I am super excited for Assassin's Creed Valhalla. This brand new world looks AMAZING! Plus, the footage shows so many cool weapons and abilities. In fact, one that caught my eye is the dual wielding. You are able to dual wield a wide variety of weapons. So many in fact, that I want to know what the STRONGEST way to fight would be. What do you use? Theorists, pick up your weapons of choice and get ready for a battle to the best combo!

  • I know I'm commenting a little late on this one, but as a bit of a history nerd and especially interested in vikings (being one myself), I have to correct you on the effectiveness on a shield as a weapon. Specifically a viking shield. You see there is one reason viking shields are effective weapons - and that's the bar you hold the shield with. This bar allows you to move the shield and use it both as an offensive and defensive weapon. Compared to shields that were used in England strapped to your arm, rendering that arm basically useless as an offensive arm. The construction of the viking shield made it one of the most useful and effective weapons for a viking. I'll end on this - MatPat please, when you do viking based theories, do better research :) Hollywood is not research. And when this virus is under control, you're welcome to visit Norway and learn some more on the subject.

  • Dual wielding is silly. But shields ARE weapons. Just defensive ones. Edge-strikes are a simple and effective offensive way to use a shield. Edges were often reinforced, and have a thin point of contact. "punching" with a shield is effective. Now, the bigger the shield, the LESS usable it becomes for edge-striking. But it was CERTAINLY a thing.

  • Valhalla is so historically inaccurate I don't even want to play. Sorry if my statement offended any Assassin Creed fans. Because I am not a fan of the Assassins Creed series. The word assassin originated from the Arabic word Hashshashin, which assassins in medieval times have nothing to do with Vikings, which assassins in the medieval times are describing the Saracen murderers, which are hired to murder East Roman Empire, Kingdom of Jerusalem political figures, nobles during the period of the crusades, so it has totally nothing related to Vikings. Vikings are just Nordic Scandinavians that are trying to survive due to poor weather conditions in Scandinavia, that raided Western and Eastern Christian kingdoms for food and money . I have no idea what Ubisoft is doing, and it doesn't make any utter sense. And also, why Assassin's Creed always demonize or villainise the Knight's Templar? They first did not explain the purpose of Knight's Templar, the purpose of Crusades, and started portraying the Knight's Templar as an evil organisation or something. Ubisoft has no clear understanding of medieval history or classical antiquity.

  • I used to like mat a lot more before he started trying to be funny and filling the video up just to reach more than 10 minutes, videos feel so disjointed with some good parts connected with pockets of unfunny filler meant to unnaturally extend the video.. Mat have a different writer and narrator you are ruining the experience, have someone taking care of the quality of the videos and you can have the business side running but for the love off God.. You are not what you think you are

  • I’ve actually used a shield before and they make for extremely strong weapons. The smaller the shield, the better for mobility. If a shield is strong enough, you can counter blows from swords, spears, or any other blunt force or sharp weapon, to then throw punches or hits with the extremely hard nub that’s usually made of metal or another hard material. Even better if it has a spike. I would chose duel wielding two butler shields instead of taking a sword
