Chopping Down The Forest Ancient

God Of War Ragnarok: How To Beat The Forest Ancient

The first thing to note about this fight is that around half health, poisonous creatures will show up to distract and fight you. If you have Spartan Rage, use it to take them out with ease because they can become a hassle as you’re trying to balance fighting them and The Forest Ancient itself.

As The Forest Ancient moves around, it will open the center of its chest to shoot projectiles at you, including a large beam of energy. These attacks are powerful and can deal quite a bit of damage, so be sure to avoid these attacks by dodging. Your opportunity to deal damage back is while the creature’s chest is open for attack. You’ll want to throw your axe at the creature’s chest, causing it to spit out explosive stones.

Grab And Throw The Stones

God Of War Ragnarok: How To Beat The Forest Ancient

Once you’ve gotten The Forest Ancient to spit out explosive stones, you have a limited amount of time to run up, grab one, and throw it back at the creature. This will cause the creature to drop to its knees, stunned for a limited amount of time. During this window, you can run up to it and press R3 to jump onto it and begin dishing out serious damage. Kratos will proceed to kick The Forest Ancient in the chest, damaging its only weak point. After dealing a significant amount of damage, you’ll be forced to back off, and The Forest Ancient will resume its attacks.

At this point in the fight, it’s a matter of taking out the additional enemies and repeating the steps you’ve already accomplished to finish killing The Forest Ancient. When it attacks, throw your axe, collect the explosive stones, throw them back at the creature, and pummel it again until the job is done.
