Tired of riding around England on the back of a bear or a boring old horse? Lucky for you, there's now a unicorn mount available as a reward for completing the Rainbow is Magic challenge in Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which will certainly add some sparkles and joy to your Viking adventures. 

As part of the game's anniversary celebration, all players will be able to complete a special challenge that'll reward you with this fantastical new mount. It's only available for a limited time, however, so let's see what you need to do to get it.

How to complete Rainbow is Magic in Assassin's Creed Valhalla 

This mount is only available between November 11-18, so you'll want to get a move on. There's an individual challenge called Rainbow is Magic that you'll need to complete to obtain your noble steed which shouldn't take you too long to complete.

You need to perform five kills by rushing towards your enemies while on your mount. The easiest way to do this is by weakening five enemies using arrows, abilities, or light attacks with your melee weapon first. Then, when they're almost defeated, mow them down at speed while riding your mount. You'll often find groups of enemies walking along the many roads, so that's your best bet to get this challenge done quickly. Just make sure that you get the final blow while on your mount, otherwise, it won't count.

The first three games Lauren played on PC were Star Wars: X-Wing, Zoo Tycoon and Barbie Fashion Designer, which explains her love of all things space, strategy and aesthetically pleasing. Lauren recently joined PC Gamer as the deputy guides editor after three years of writing many dozens of Destiny 2 guides at VG247, as well as casually trying to shoehorn in The Witcher 3 articles wherever possible. When she's not trying to force everyone to play as a Warlock in Destiny 2, Lauren is either mastering her SEO abilities to help smash the competition, or patting one of her red sons.
