Defeat the phantoms.

The Frost Phantom is a small boss players will encounter in God of War Ragnarok. However, the Frost Phantom can prove tricky to beat because players can't damage them when they first meet them. Instead, players must change tactics to survive the fight and eventually beat the Frost Phantom boss in God of War Ragnarok.

How to defeat the Frost Phantom in God of War Ragnarok

If you want to defeat the Frost Phantoms like the one in the Forbidden Sands location that also features various locked Nornir Chests, you must focus on filling their stun bar. Filling their stun bars full causes the Frost Phantoms to disappear, making Purple Totems appear, otherwise known as Springs, in-game. You must seek out and destroy these totems to damage the boss and remove an entire section of the Frost Phantoms health bar. If you do not destroy these Purple Totems, the boss is immortal, and the fight will be everlasting. The number of Purple Totems differs on the location of fighting the Frost Phantom. The one in Forbidden Sands has three you need to seek out, but the one in Midgard has two in plain sight.

To defeat the Frost Phantom in The Forbidden Sands, you must first keep attacking it to raise the stun bar for it to disappear. Then you need to locate the three Purple Totems. Most of these are out of reach, so you need to rely on your Leviathan Axe throws to damage them. You'll probably only manage to destroy one at a time, but two is manageable if you are fast and lucky. After a time, the Frost Phantom will appear, and you must repeat the process a few times. Once all three are gone, you must damage the Phantom a little to prompt the R3 to let Kratos finish it.

You can find the first pillar hidden on a cliff near where you first find the Forst Phantom shown in the image below:

The second Purple Totem is located on the tower to the left, where the Frost Phantom spawns. You can climb up there, but throwing the axe is faster.

You can defeat the second Frost Phantom you meet in Midgard by using the same steps as the one in The Forbidden Sands location. In short, stun them until they disappear, and you can destroy two purple pillars in time to defeat them. Luckily both pillars during the second Frost phantom fight are not hidden away like the previous fight, so you will have no trouble finding both and destroying them.
