Boss fight with the beserker

All Berserkers are fought in small enclosed arenas - God of War Ragnarok: How to defeat the Berserker Fraekni the Zealous? - Berserkers - God of War Ragnarok Guide

All Berserkers are fought in small enclosed arenas. Avoid standing near the edges of the arena, as the camera can make it difficult for you to follow the boss.

It is a good idea to attack Fraekni as soon as he appears in the arena, so he will already lose some health at the start. During the fight:

  1. use Kratos' runic attacks - optimally you should use all six (2 attacks for each weapon);
  2. use Spartan Rage (depending on the type you choose, activate it immediately or, for example, only after taking more damage);
  3. ask companion for help - they can use regular or stronger attacks (hold down the button);
  4. stay on the move and dodge when you are not sure if you will block or parry a given attack;
  5. avoid losing a lot of health in the initial part of the fight - health may appear in the arena, but picking it up can be risky.
