How to avoid magical ranged attacks in God of War Ragnarok

Unlike the ranged attacks used by the Grim that are too fast for you to avoid, the Light Elves summon a slow-moving magical attack. When it hits you, it can cause you to stagger, leaving you exposed to a follow-up by another enemy. The best way to remove this attack from the battlefield is to destroy it using your Blades of Chaos. Aim your Blades of Chaos as if you were to pull an enemy towards you and focus on the slow-moving light. From there, fire out your blades, and Kratos will automatically destroy them when the blades connect with the incoming attack.

You will have a short notice before these ranged attacks are used because the enemy who fires it will have a red ring appear around them, signaling this is an unblockable attack. You will not be able to guard against it. Your best option is to aim your Blades of Chaos at the shimmering light, destroy it, and then take out the enemy before they have time to fire another one. Unfortunately, destroying the ranged attack will not stagger them, but it will prevent them from hitting you and causing you damage.
