How to beat The Hateful in God of War Ragnarök


Scattered across the nine realms of God of War Ragnarök are six Draugr Holes that must be closed. Of course, since it is a God of War game, closing them implies beating the snot out of what comes out of said holes. In this case, it’s a Draugr called The Hateful and he has a serious case of immortality that Kratos needs to solve. Here’s how to put out that flame.

How to defeat The Hateful of Draugr Holes in God of War Ragnarök

The Hateful can be an overwhelming fight if players allow it. Many boss encounters in God of War Ragnarök are a one-on-one affair. That’s not the case here, as The Hateful is a big believer in inviting multiple people to the party. Let your partner deal with additional enemies while you focus on dealing damage to The Hateful. Since there are six different Draugr Holes, The Hateful encountered will have different levels of health. There’s no shame in leveling up your gear and coming back when you’re better prepared.

As for the fight itself, The Hateful is also a fan of setting Kratos on fire. Keep an eye on them, dodge when the ring turns red, and launch your counter attacks as often as possible, as they are extremely effective. Other than that, there’s nothing too special about this fight, as The Hateful is just a Draugr with a fancy title. Chances are you’ll have had a lot of fighting by the time you find your first Draugr Hole. The only difference is that this one has a bigger health bar. So go show them the bug of getting out of that hole.
