In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, there is a daily system of contracts that can be completed to obtain opal, a form of currency that can be used to obtain rare and cosmetic items.
Each contract asks you to kill a certain target and, according to what has been reported by several players, these targets are very often not human beings but the straw dummies present inside your camp. Without further ado, this is a bug which, however, allows you to easily and effortlessly obtain the opal.
Not only that though: in some cases, the mannequins come to life and walk moving along the camp. Something weird and scary at the same time and one that a user on Reddit witnessed. Although Assassin’s Creed Valhalla updated yesterday, the new patch apparently didn’t fix this funny bug.
AC: Valhalla offers repeatable quests that turn random NPCs in the gameworld into targets with a little back story and everything.
The problem: Training dummies seem to count as NPCs – so I just got the quest to kill a dummy 20 feet away, that apparently committed crimes. pic.twitter.com/R9uiBar9dI

We just have to wait for another patch from Ubisoft.
