How to defeat Vanadis in God of War Ragnarok

Take down this Valkyrie!

From the very beginning of the game, God of War Ragnarok puts players up against powerful enemies and bosses, like the Dreki. Boss fights tend to increase with difficulty as the game goes on, and the fight against Vanadis is one of the toughest.

How to beat Vanadis in God of War Ragnarok

Vanadis is a difficult boss because of her speed and ferocity. She will attack Kratos in quick succession, making it difficult to avoid direct hits. Players should prioritize avoiding damage over dealing it. Getting hits in on the Valkyrie while she is staggered is a great way to deal damage without risking death at the same time, so filling the stagger meter and using Sonic Arrows is very important.

Tips for beating Vanadis in God of War Ragnarok

There are some things to keep in mind that can make victory much more attainable.

  • Keep moving - Be sure to move around and don't stay in one spot for very long. This includes melee attacking Vanadis, as staying up close for too long will invite heavy attacks.
  • Stay quick on your feet - Vanadis moves incredibly quickly and can catch Kratos off guard if slow attacks are used against her. Be prepared to dodge or parry at all times, and prioritize this even over attacking.
