In God of War Ragnarok, The Reckoning is the sixth goal on The Path main story quest line. It takes place in the forest realm of Vanaheim, where you’ll have to contend with Einherjar and various primordial beasts and some very hostile plant life.
How to kill these plants depends on which type of plant you’re talking about, and some of them can’t be killed. Here’s what you need to know about the best ways to take out any plants you find while on Vanaheim in God of War Ragnarok.
How to Defeat All Plants in Vanaheim in God of War Ragnarok
How to kill the spitting plants in God of War Ragnarok
These are the easiest plants to deal with in God of War Ragnarok. When they open up, that means they’re about to spit, but they’re not very accurate and pretty easy to dodge. Just be careful not to stand on the poisonous patch their spit leaves on the ground. Then you have to kill them with one well-aimed throw of your Leviathan Axe.
How to kill the poison mist plants in God of War Ragnarok
These plants have bulbous clusters on their tops and create large areas of impenetrable, deadly fog around themselves in God of War Ragnarok. You can’t kill them, but you can stop them from generating their poison with an elemental throw of your Leviathan Axe (L2 to aim, R2 to throw). Just make sure you’re not standing within range of the mist when you recall your axe.
Later on, you’ll encounter two poison mist plants together. In this case, freeze the first one, then shoot it with a Sigil Arrow (press Square). When you recall your axe, the first plant should stay frozen, and you can freeze the second one. Once both plants are frozen, run past them quickly before the Sigil wears off.
How to kill the “mother” plants in God of War Ragnarok
Shortly after the sun suddenly rises over Vanaheim, you’ll encounter your first “mother” plant in God of War Ragnarok. These have long vines; at the end of the vines, aggressive flowers spit high-velocity poison darts. You can’t damage the flower, but if you destroy the “mother,” this will kill all of its flowers too. Follow the vines until you find a large bulbous plant. Hit it with an elemental Blades of Chaos attack (aim with L2, attack with R2).
How to kill the blue poison cluster plants in God of War Ragnarok
In the Western Barri Woods, near the end of The Reckoning, you’ll be attacked by waves of Einherjar, and your fight will be made more difficult by two blue flowers on one of the high ledges that spit out clusters of poison around themselves. Don’t waste time trying to kill these. No combination of Sigil and elemental attacks will damage them in God of War Ragnarok. Just stay away from them, and focus your aggression on the Einherjar.
