rǫdd — dynskotum kvǫddusk.

Ok allsnœfrir jǫfrar kvǫddusk orðalaust dynskotum at morði; rǫdd rauðra randa endisk.

And the very vigorous rulers greeted each other wordlessly with din-shots at the battle; the voice of the red shields [BATTLE] sufficed.

notes

[3] endisk ‘sufficed’: For the meaning ‘suffice’ see LP: enda 2; Fritzner: enda 5. The sense seems to be that the only communication necessary was the fighting and the sound it made.
