God of War Ragnarok is one of the most difficult games due to its tough bosses. It’s not just the regular enemies that will present a challenge; the bosses are especially hard. You’ll face some of this game’s toughest and most powerful foes, and one of them is Alva. In this guide, I’ll tell you how to beat the Alva in God of War Ragnarok. You will find Alva by heading to the Temple of Light, where you take down “Hilt of Gram.” However, before getting to the battle scene, you must complete the “Statues Puzzle.”

God of War Ragnarok Alva Boss Fight Tips

To efficiently take down the Alva, you must first master shield strikes. This can be done by pressing “L1” twice. In other words, use this technique when you see a blue ring around the attacker. Doing so will interrupt the enemy’s attack.

Attack #1: Get ready for a giant wind-up when you see the dual slashes. You can dodge these attacks.

Attack #2: Alva will use an unblockable ground attack. So the best thing you can do is to roll away from it.

Attack #3: Alva will start throwing the blades, so roll under them to avoid them.

Attack #4: Another attack you need to watch out for is the cross-energy blasts. Again, you must dodge this attack.


If Alva tries to heal herself with the light of Alfheim, you need to stop it. Otherwise, she will keep depleting her health and running in a loop. Press the “L1” key to perform the strike shield, interrupting her healing process. Then use your signature move to kill her.
