When you access the Void you will notice a glowing red ball chained to the ground. Destroy the rock to get access to a new weapon called “Vorpal Blade.” It is a weapon that allows you to attack enemies at a distance.
Enter the main hall in the Void and find the blue button on the wall. Use your newly found weapon to hit and expose the hidden passage. Go ahead and you will find a huge abyss, use your Vorpal Blade to hit the blue button at the bottom to create a gust of wind. Now you need to target your Blade at the fire and then at the lanterns to open a passage.
Trickster Door Puzzle
Trickster Door is a puzzle you need to solve to reach one of the bosses in Darksiders Genesis. The passage is at the end of chapter 2. To fight the boss you must reach The Slag Heap area on the map. To reach the boss you must visit three different locations and take down some enemies. Jump on one of the platforms in The Slag Heap. Each platform will take you to a different location where you must defeat your opponents.
During your fight, you will come across exploding walls as well. Use the fire to light your Vorpal Blade and aim it at the wall to make them explode. This will help you activate all platform signs. Once that’s done you can return to the arena where Slug Demon is waiting for you.
How to Enter Chapter 3 Dungeon?
At a certain point in Darksiders Genesis, you will have to enter a dungeon to continue the story. The entrance to the dungeon can be spotted is in The Furnace.

Getting to this area is easier if you playing with a friend. There are two levers you need to activate, your partner can do the other one but if you are playing alone use the bomb growths to trigger the other lever.
How to Enter Chapter 4 Dungeon?
You need to light four bonfires to enter the dungeon in this area. Go to the right side of this location where you must fight a few enemies guarding the fire. Take them down and mark three bonfires, one will be to the right of your screen hanging over the abyss and the rest is to your left and front. Hit all three objects with your Vorpal Blade but hit the lit one first, it is hanging in the air. Once these three are lit the main bonfire will lit itself.
Now go to the left side of the main puzzle area where the bonfires are, mark the two bonfires there and the main bonfire will lit itself. Light the final bonfire to enter the dungeon.
Chapter 4 Void Bombs
You need to use the Void Bombs to get out of this location and continue the story. In Chapter 4 you will come across a red sparking object chained to the ground. Use your weapon and destroy the object and you get the Void Bomb. The bomb allows you to create portals that essentially act as fast travel points. However, this Void Bomb can also be used to solve puzzles.
The first thing you need to do is throw the Void Bomb at the first point that opens the portal. Now use the next bomb beyond the abyss to create a new portal that will take you to the other side. Now open another portal near the big column. After you have the portals opened take the Bomb Growths from the bonfire and head to the portal below.
Throw the Bomb Growths into the portals and it should hit the column. Move on the column to get to the next location.

Now go back upstairs and throw the Bomb Growths into the portal so it will come out of the other side and hit the spot.
Chapter 6 Gate
In this chapter, you reach a gate with various glowing red and blue signs. Take a look at the symbols in this location. Whatever is red, throw the Vorpal Blade at it. If all are blue, throw the blade at the one immediately right of the door and another one at the left most of the door. This will open the door and there is a small lever that needs a Bomb Growth to open another gate.
