Using torches in Assassin's Creed Valhalla

Eivor can equip a torch that will help you in dark places or be thrown and dropped to set things on fire.

Keyboard and mouse

To equip a torch press and hold the T key.

You can throw a torch press the right mouse button to aim and the left mouse button.

The torch can be dropped by holding down the R key.


To equip a torch press and hold the down arrow on the D-Pad, select the torch icon with the right joystick and let go of the D-Pad.

When you want to throw a torch use the left trigger to aim and the right trigger to let go.

To drop a torch press the right trigger on your controller.

Dropped torches can also be used to light your arrows!

Please note if you engage in combat while carrying a torch you will not be able to drop it. Try unequipping it by following the equipping steps again or throwing it instead.
