How to counter Dreki attacks in God of War Ragnarok

The Dreki has an assortment of deadly melee attacks that can be countered relatively easily if you watch out for their cues. It can be tempting to jump right into the fight and deal blow after blow, but it may be wise to time these attacks strategically. The best thing you can do is constantly be on the defensive and parry attacks as the Dreki lunges at you.

The barrage of ranged and area-of-effect attacks can also take a heavy toll on Kratos’ health if you’re not careful. Watch out for when the Dreki shoots electric projectiles from its mouth, which will be your cue to press X as quickly as you can to roll out of the way.

Avoid walking back into this area because it will remain electrified for a couple of seconds after it lands on the ground. Remember that when the red ring indicator appears on the screen, these attacks are unparryable. Instead, you will want to roll out of the way as quickly as possible.
