Raiding the Raiders is the first mission in the Viking Story Campaign. The Knight campaign is required to be completed before this story can be accessed. Apollyon has all but conquered the Vikings, leaving them with just enough food to ensure a fight among the clans. Now, the turmoil has left the clans desperate. Only a few leaders have survived, and they are at war. There are eight Observables and three Breakables in this mission.
It's been years since Apollyon came. Our people starved, and the worst of us fell on each other, like beasts, growing fat on their own people's misery. Ragnar was one of those. And so, I came down from the mountains. I joined the Warborn, and then we did something about it. - The Raider
As the mission starts, The Raider has invaded Ragnar's outpost. The first objective is to burn down the gate. There are two ways to do this. Look for interactive braziers near the item to be burned, and knock them over using a specified control, or place Fire Flask over the object. Fire Flasks are randomly scattered around the map and stack in the player's on-screen inventory when collected. Objects (the gate, buildings, towers, doors, etc.) that can be burned will have a white outline. Use the D-pad (console) to place the flask in the desired location. A target circle will appear on the ground and the player can move the target to the desired location before releasing the flask. Be aware, however, that fire damages the hero and any nearby teammates as well. Damage can be mitigated if the player moves out of the way quickly.
After the gate is destroyed, the objective changes to 'Loot the food supplies 0/3'. Look for interactive barrels. They are on the porch of three separate buildings. One of these buildings is behind another gate that will need to be burned. Next to this building is a tower with archers. Burn the tower to take them out, or they will continue to damage the nearby allies. Enemies will continue pouring out of specific buildings until they are burned.
Watch for Observables. Interacting with these will give more in-depth information regarding the story. Apollyon will comment on how she underestimated the Vikings and how inventive they are. After the three food barrels have been found, a cutscene will start and the Raider will head to Ragnar's location. He will be inside a building and will open the door to see who is throwing axes at his door and yelling at him.
After a brief fight, Ragnar tries to escape on horseback. The Raider will also jump on the back of a horse and a chase ensues. The player will need to use the hero's guard stance and axe swings to eliminate mounted enemy forces that will approach on either side of the hero. A single swing is enough to dismount them. Ragnar will use Fire Flasks and nearby objects as obstacles to slow down the player and damage them. While the path for the chase is specific, the player will still need to move left or right to avoid the obstacles in the path. Once the player completes the chase, the Raider will grab a small axe from a nearby stump and throw it at the back of Ragnar, dismounting him.
A cutscene will play, where The Raider fights and defeats Ragnar during so saying" what you have done is wrong" "You FEAST while all around you people starve" "You and your warriors WILL LEARN TO LIVE LIKE THE REST OF US!" "or you will become food for crows". Ragnar replies" Idiot child might as well ask me to pick up..FARMING! We're Vikings". The raider say"so that's a no?" for Ragnar to reply with his last words "VALHALLA" .The leader confronts Ragnar's second-in-command and convinces him and Ragnar's remaining clan to join the Warborn.
