Are There Cheats in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey?
There are no cheats built into Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. However, there are plenty of unlockables and other information of interest for players. As such, while interested individuals can uncover Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey‘s less out in the open content on their own, their progress should be much smoother with some assistance along the way.
What Are Some Unlockables and Other Information of Interest in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey?
For example, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey has a secret ending, which can involve a fair amount of effort to unlock. First, players need to unlock Atlantis by completing a side quest called “A Family Legacy” that is unlocked on an automatic basis after completing the main quest called “United Front.” Said process will involve heading to Thera where players will have to find a tablet using Ikraos before following the instructions to enter lost Atlantis. From that point forward, finishing up “A Family Legacy” should be a simple and straightforward matter, though it is no more than the start of securing the secret ending.
This is because securing the secret ending requires the player to take on four mythical monsters, which would be the Cyclops, the Medusa, the Minotaur, and the Sphinx. Each of these mythical monsters come at the conclusion of entire side quest lines, which can be started in Kythera, Lesbos, Messara, and Boetia.
Out of the four, the Cyclops, the Medusa, and the Minotaur are conventional boss battles, though perhaps a bit strange considering the setting. Due to this, while they are challenging, interested individuals should be able to beat them by learning their patterns as well as how to exploit those patterns. Generally speaking, most people will want to do so through firsthand experience, but they have a second option in the form of watching videos of the boss battles as well.
Meanwhile, the Sphinx lives up to its mythical source of inspiration by asking three questions that are drawn out of a pool of twelve potential questions. Players can win by answering all three questions, but if they get even a single one wrong, they can expect to have to start over, which will result in a new batch of questions chosen from the twelve. As such, people who aren’t so good at riddles might want to look up the answers to the questions, lest they become frustrated by having to redo the segment again and again.
Loot-wise, it can be very worthwhile to pick up legendary armor sets. This is because they can come with bonus buffs such as damage drain, increased resistances, and increased damage for certain abilities, thus making each one potentially useful under certain circumstances. Some of the legendary armor sets can be picked up by just beating certain quests and side quests. In contrast, others are literally loot in the sense that interested individuals will have to hunt down certain enemies, with Cult of Kosmos members being particularly common.

All treasure map locations
Xenia’s questline has you use treasure maps to locate the following six treasure items: Golden Feather Of Ajax, Makedonian Bracelet, Triton’s Shell Of The Tides, Apollo’s Lyre, Pan’s Flute, and Olouros Fortress Coffer. Find all treasures to complete Xenia’s questline and get the “A Pirate’s Life For Me” trophy. The questline starts on Keos. At the start of story Sequence 7, you can find all the treasures. You are given multiple treasure maps by Xenia, but only one of them is correct. The way this is normally done is by checking all maps in the inventory against your world map to track down which could be the real spot. This can be a tedious process — so using the video guide below makes it much easier by showing you exactly where to go right away.
- 1. Golden Feather Of Ajax – 1:30
- 2. Makedonian Bracelet – 5:26
- 3. Triton’s Conch Shell Of The Tides – 9:20
- 4. Pan’s Flute – 15:21
- 5. Apollo’s Lyre – 16:19
- 6. Olouros Fortress Coffer – 19:25
To find Atlantis and get the “Birthright” trophy, complete the “A Family’s Legacy” side quest, which is automatically unlocked after the “United Front” main mission in Sequence 7. The quest takes you to Thera, one of the Volcanic Islands. You must then scan the area with your eagle to retrieve an ancient tablet and then follow the beams of light to direct them to the giant stone door. Behind the door is Atlantis – The Lost City, where you also get to meet Pythagoras. This will then unlock “The Gates Of Atlantis” side quest, which is an endgame questline. You will get the “Birthright” trophy after meeting Pythagoras.
Cyclops boss location
To fight the Cyclops boss and get the “Eye On The Prize” trophy for defeating him, complete the “A God Among Men” (Kythera Island), “Left To Dye” (Kythera Island), and “Stairway To Olympos” (Kythera Island) side quests. As part of this questline, you will find the Cyclops boss on the Forgotten Isle (he is not accessible outside of this quest). Note: This has nothing to do with the Sequence 1 story boss that has the same name. The Cyclops of this questline is a high-level one-eyed monster.
Medusa boss location
To fight the Medusa boss and get the “In Perseus’s Image” trophy for defeating her, complete the “Romancing The Stone Garden” (Lesbos Island), “Love’s Long Shadow”, “Hard To Artemis”, “Heavy Is The Spear”, “Keys To Happiness?”, and “Writhing Dead” side quests. Medusa is the endboss of this questline, found in the Petrified Temple on Lesbos. All of these quests take place on Lesbos Island, which is a high-level endgame region. Medusa is a Level 50 boss — so you need to be at least Level 46 to have a chance.
Minotaur boss location
To fight the Minotaur boss and get the “A-maze-ing Victory!” trophy for defeating him, complete the “Myths And Minotaurs” (Messara Island), “Of Minotaurs And Men” (Messara Island), and “He Waits” (Messara Island) side quests. The Minotaur is the endboss of this questline, found in the Labyrinth Of Lost Souls. Simply complete the side quests to fight him.
Sphinx riddle solutions and location
To complete the Sphinx riddle and get the “Riddle Me This” trophy, complete the “A Family’s Legacy” (Thera), “Lore Of The Sphinx” (Boeotia Region), and “Awaken The Myth” (Boeotia Region) side quests. The “A Family’s Legacy” side quest is automatically unlocked after the “United Front” main mission in Sequence 7. That side quest will take you to Atlantis. After discovering Atlantis, you will unlock the “Lore Of The Sphinx” quest. Unlike the other three world bosses, this one is not an actual fight but a series of three questions that must be answered correctly.
The tricky part is the questions are different every time. They are selected from a pool of 12 possible questions. The correct answers can be: Stars, Tree, Fish, Hummingbird, Sun, Memory, Moon, Mountain, Spider, Time, Death, River. If you answer incorrectly, you will die and have to answer a new set of questions. It is important that you remember your answers (or write them down). After the three questions, you must press three buttons corresponding with your answers. If you press a wrong button, you die and have to start over.
Becoming Champion of the Arena
The Arena is found in Pephka, the region in the bottom right of the world map. Defeat all five enemies in the Arena to become Champion and get the “Are You Not Entertained?” achievement. The last enemy is Level 50, but you can defeat him at Level 45 with good gear. At Level 50, the enemy is not too difficult to defeat. Note: Defeating just the Level 50 arena champ is not enough to get the “Are You Not Entertained?” achievement — you must defeat all five enemies.
Easily defeat Legendary Animals
To easily defeat Legendary Animals, you can trick enemies into fighting them for you. First, build up your Wanted Meter until a Mercenary is dispatched to hunt you. The higher the Wanted Level, the more powerful the Mercenary will be. You will normally just need a Mercenary that is a little higher level than you. Wait until a Mercenary appears nearby. Once they see you, run to the Legendary Hunt location. The Mercenary will follow you for a long time. As long as you are on the island with the Legendary Hunt, you should be able to lure the Mercenary into a fight.
Go to the Legendary Animal and start fighting. Once the Mercenary and the Animal engage, you can move back and allow them to fight. The Legendary Animal will normally win in a fight against a Mercenary. While the animal is distracted by the Mercenary, attack it from behind to get in some easy hits, then back away. Once the Mercenary is killed, quickly kill the animal. This trick also works with other enemies. For example, if there is a bandit camp nearby, you can lure the entire group of enemies (and leader) to the Legendary Animal to fight it.
To romance someone in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, you just need to find them and complete their side or main quests. Watch for a “romance” option, which just means sex. The following is a list of all characters you can sleep with. There will be a quick cutscene that shows how your character seals the deal.
Note: Romance has no effect on future romances. You can romance all characters in the game, if desired. There are no repercussions or negative effects from romancing any character, even if you romance women and men. Your gender selection at the start of the game also does not change who you can romance.
Odessa: She is a young relative of Odysseus. She can be found and rescued on Ithaka, in Odysseus’s Palace, to begin her quests.
Auxesia: She is an elderly woman that gives you a quest. She can be found in Phokis, on Mount Parnassos.

Hippokrates questline location and walkthrough
The “Hippokrates” questline starts with the “Inheritance Insurance” side quest in the Boeotia region. You must first complete all other side quests in Boeotia. This can be done as early as Sequence 7, when the story takes you to that region. Hippokrates’ questline consists of the “Inheritance Insurance” and “Too Much Of A Good Thing” quests. Complete this questline to get the “Trust Me, I’m A Doctor” trophy.
Olympic questline location and walkthrough
The Olympic questline is automatically unlocked during Sequence 7, after the “Kings Of Sparta” main mission. It can then be selected from the questlog. It requires you to deliver a champion to the Olympics, but in the end you fight in the Olympics yourself. The Olympic questline consists of the following quests: “Delivering A Champion”, “The Contender”, “The Long Game”, and “Pankration”. Successfully complete the Olympic questline to get the “Going For Gold” trophy.
