Once Kratos and Atreus are reunited they come across the Huntress. This is the first boss that Kratos and Atreus fight together. In this God of War: Ragnarok guide, we cover how you can defeat Huntress.
Beating Huntress In God Of War: Ragnarok
Huntress uses a bow and has different arrow attacks that she can use. One of these attacks involves shooting a line of arrows at the floor. These are going to explode and will damage you if you are too close. When you see sparks on the floor dodge or move away from the area to avoid taking damage.
Huntress can also fire a single arrow at you which does fire damage. You need to dodge this. The weak point of the boss is her glowing horns. When you see these glow, throw your Leviathan Axe at them to stagger the boss. This will allow you to safely get some hits in and deal some damage. Time this right and you can prevent her from using an unblockable attack prompted with a red circle.
Huntress is an agile boss and can quickly get away from you if you move too close. That is why we recommend using the Blades of Chaos and Atreus to attack her and only use the axe to hit her weak point.
Depending on the difficulty option that you selected, you will find some health that you can pick up. If your rage meter is full then you can activate Spartan Rage and deal damage to the boss in order to gain health back. Spartan Rage can also come in handy if you miss the red or yellow prompts. When activated it will knock back Huntress and keep you from receiving damage.
Once the health of the boss is depleted, you need to press the prompted buttons in order to defeat her. She will drop a couple of important resources including the first Frozen Flame which allows you to upgrade the Leviathan Axe.
