With a title like God of War, we know Kratos isn’t afraid to let his fists, Leviathan Axe, Blades of Chaos, or even his shield fly. However, in God of War Ragnarok, he will battle even more mythical entities from Norse mythology, maybe none more famous than Odin himself. In fact, the God of Thunder is the first major boss battle you’ll encounter, so if you’re looking for tips on how to defeat Thor early on in God of War Ragnarok, go no further.

How to Defeat the First Thor Boss in God of War Ragnarok
After Odin’s visit to your humble dwelling fails, Thor is released to inflict pain on Kratos, and this boss battle is unquestionably an early test of your mastery of the many talents in God of War Ragnarok. As a general rule, understanding when to block, dodge, or parry will increase your chances of success against the bulky Thor, just as it will with other Elite foes.
The fight is less about decreasing his health to zero and more about building up the stun metre so you can use R3 to perform a grab move. Thor’s attack will consist of a three-hit combo sequence that may be blocked or parried, as well as a devastating clap move when he throws his arms back. If you time it well, you can parry it; otherwise, blocking and avoiding work effectively. When a red circle attack comes your way, prepare to dodge roll away to prevent any damage.
After you complete the initial grab manoeuvre, the conflict switches to another arena where the fighting generally continues the same. However, this time, make sure to use the columns around you for extra damage. To punish Thor, draw him towards these things, block or avoid his assaults, and interact with them.
Thor will begin to use Mjolnir at this point, either as a distance throw, crashing into the ground for streaks of lightning that impact in front of him, or to power up his melee sequence. You can simply avoid the throws, and the rest may be avoided by blocking them before you attack. In this second phase, Kratos appears to die, but is resurrected by Thor for further agony.
After watching the incredible frozen lightning bolt, you should prepare for the final stretch. Thor’s attacks will stay same, but he will add a new area-of-effect assault to his arsenal. Avoid the red circles and come up close to damage him as he starts slamming Mjolnir against the ground to produce lightning bolts. Also, utilise Spartan Rage to maximise your damage whenever feasible, and it won’t be long before you can grab him again with R3 and end the fight.
Thor will consider your blood debt settled and leave the region after you have demonstrated your worth. This will also be the point at which Sindri and Brok make their return in God of War Ragnarok, propelling the story forward.
