  • The secondary attack is enough to stagger most creatures.


  • Historically, no archeological find has been made to establish the existence of this weapon. The atgeir is only mentioned in one of the Icelandic sagas, composed at the end the 13th century. This could mean that the weapon was, in fact, based upon 13th century polearms (thus the weapon's category name used in Valheim), before being retroactively attributed to the Viking period.
