Finding the yellow ship in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is one of the more obtuse objectives in the game especially on the harder exploration difficulties. Eivor is tasked with tracking down a yellow-painted ship in order to collect evidence for Soma concerning a traitor. Here’s how to find the yellow ship in ACV for the “Stench of Treachery” mission.
Where to find the yellow ship in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Eivor gets the clue about a yellow ship by following Soma’s hints about the secret bunker after the raid. Going down the ladder that she points out will eventually lead to an open cave with yellow paint. Following that yellow paint will eventually lead to a shore with yellow paint splashed on it.
There will eventually be an objective telling the player to “search the swamps for a yellow longship.” It is not clear from the map, but the swamps are near the Soham Hideout, Middeltun, and Deod River. That clump of islands in the middle is considered the swamp.
Search around there and it might be familiar because one of Soma’s people was around there. Go to the top left part of the island between Middeltun and the Deod River near the player marker and pointer on the above picture. The boat will be there in somewhat of a tattered state, as shown in the picture at the top. It’s got a dragon or serpent-like being on its torn sails.
Jump aboard and examine the object on the inside when the prompt comes up as well as on the starboard bow (front right). There are things there that Eivor can examine that can make a difference in the case.
There’s no pop-up to notify the player of when it is fully complete. It is up to them when to trek back to Soma and tell her who is the traitor among them. Players can also take their time and fish around the area, too.
