Shadow of Mordor Weapon Legends

Completing the Weapon Challenges will not only alter the appearance of the weapons, but will also add to the story of these weapons.

In Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Weapon legends guide, I’m going to talk about all these challenges along with some useful tips to complete them.

Do note that this guide is not a complete walkthrough of the Weapon Challenges, but will only cover some useful tips to help you complete them!

Bow Legends

An Elbereth Gilthoniel
Location: Udûn
Rewards: 400 XP and 250 Mirian

He was singing the hymn when the ambush came. It was the last mistake his enemies ever made.

The key location in this Weapon Challenge is the tent in nearby vicinity. This area not only provides amazing cover, but you will also come across stacks of ammo.

When we talk about decent vantage points, you can also check out a crane placed near the location of the tent. Use this crane to your advantage and head inside the tent to replenish your ammo.

A word of advice: sometimes, you will also come across a couple of war-chiefs in the area. Plan accordingly!

Shadow and Flame
Location: Sea of Núrnen
Rewards: 500 XP and 50 Mirian

He led his attackers into an explosive trap. The destruction could be seen from the slopes of Oroduin.

This is a pretty straightforward mission! Instead of merely planning to complete this mission, it is better to complete the optional objective. You will come across plenty of ammo stacks in the area to facilitate you in the battle. Getting a higher vantage point is most welcome in this mission.

Shadow under Siege
Location: Udûn
Rewards: 400 XP and 250 Mirian

He waited beyond the iron walls, using anyone foolish enough to peer over the ramparts as target practice.

One of the most important things to consider in this mission is staying inside the mission zone.

Your best strategy in this mission is to pick off enemies one by one and make good use of barrels and barricades to get some additional kills. You can also bait the Caragors in the area to make all the Hell break loose on the distant enemies.

Swift Mercy
Location: Udûn
Rewards: 400 XP and 250 Mirian

Having cursed his enemies, his arrows offered a swift end to their suffering.

This mission focuses on nothing, but your accuracy of using a bow. All you need to complete this mission is to be accurate and don’t take insanely long time to take your shots.

The Secret Flame
Location: Sea of Núrnen
Rewards: 450 Mirian

The hidden outpost, stocked with the enemy’s incendiary weapons, also teemed with other dangerous creatures. He knew he could remove both threats by using one against the other.

This is another mission which is pretty straightforward to complete! You need to aim at the nearby barrels to trigger an explosion and kill most of the Ghuls in the explosion.

Timing and patience is the key to complete this mission. You need to wait for all the Ghuls to agglomerate in the same area near the barrels and then target the barrel to take most of them out.

The Storm of War
Location: Udûn
Rewards: 400 XP and 200 Mirian

The Dark Lord’s servants were scattered throughout Udûn. Mounted on his beast, he moved swiftly among them and struck like lighting.

There are a couple of important things to bear in mind: make sure that your Caragor stays alive and stay in a static position while firing arrows. Use the Drain Mount to replenish your ammo using the Caragor and carefully aim your shots.

There Is No Escape
Location: Sea of Núrnen
Rewards: 550 Mirian

He watched as the creature chased down his enemies. He ensured they never reached the safety of their Stronghold.

The key tip that I can give you for this mission is to use Shadow Strike ability ease your pursuit of the Uruks. Another thing that you need to keep in mind is to check on the Graug chasing after the same Uruks as you.

Dagger Legends

A Knife in the Dark
Location: Sea of Núrnen
Rewards: 550 Mirian

He descended upon the enemy camp late at night. He was careful and deliberate. He sowed such terror and confusion that the Dark Lord’s soldiers would kill each other if he didn’t take their lives for himself.

During this mission, the first thing that you need to do is to do away with the archers. These guys can inflict heavy damage and take out Talion in a matter of no time.

You can use abilities like Shadow Strike for this purpose! In addition to this, well-placed headshots also seem to do the job just fine. Keep a close eye on the colour of your crosshair!

You don’t want it to turn red and have enemies spot you. Use walls/corners to your advantage and stick to stealth than anything else!

Clear the Skies
Location: Udûn
Rewards: 400XP and 200 Mirian

His enemies’ arrows darkened the sky. He moved to eliminate the archers and clear the path for his forces.

Like with the previous mission, the best strategy to use in this mission is to get a high vantage point and rely on stealth than anything else. Get to a higher vantage point and make use of ledge-assassinations.

In addition to this, abilities like Shadow Strike and Strike from Above seem to work best in this mission.

Deathly Whisper
Location: Udûn
Rewards: 400 XP and 200 Mirian

Any servants of the Dark Lord who heard his call that night would never see the dawn.

The key to this mission’s success is gain the attention of the enemies before finishing them off! Simply getting behind the enemies and performing the stealth kill will not complete the mission.

The best strategy to complete this mission is to hide inside the bushes in the area and attract the nearby Uruks followed by killing them.

In addition to this, you can also press the attract button immediately followed by stealthily killing the enemy to make the kill count towards your progress.
