How to get rid of red vines in God of War Ragnarok

The red vines are a stronger type of plant than what you’ve already burned before. Kratos’ Blades of Chaos are extremely effective at removing the blue vines that have appeared throughout this journey, but these red vines require much more magic to bypass and burn them. Unfortunately, the way to this magic is to reach the end of the Vanaheim area and complete the main story quest for why you have arrived in this region.

Once you reach the end of the Vanaheim area, you will receive Sigil Arrows. These arrows can enhance the magical skills of Kratos’ weapons, namely the fire of his Blades of Chaos and the ice from the Leviathan Axe. With your companion, you will need to use the Sigil Arrows on the red vines and then throw the Blades of Chaos at them to burn them properly. This will open up a pathway for you or allow you to unlock a previously inaccessible chest. Without the Sigil Arrows, you won’t be able to get around these vines.

Although some locations may bar you from progressing forward, you can return to any area where you’ve encountered red vines and use Sigil Arrows to burn them.
