Hellblade Guide: How To Defeat Fenrir, The Monstrous Wolf

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

We recently guided players on how to take down the fire boss called Surtr. After you defeat him and progress through the game, you will come across another monstrous boss called Fenrir. The giant wolf, Fenrir, is a lot tougher to take down compared to the enemies you defeated previous in Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.

Fenrir is a very tough boss to defeat, as it deals a ton of damage. Being evasive is extremely important in this fight, as one hit from Fenrir can put you close to death. The wolf will always seek an opportunity to close the gap and attack you. Aside from his melee attacks, Fenrir also has AoE attacks that will deal a lot of damage. This guide will help you evade Fenrir’s deadly attacks and defeat the Giant Wolf.

How To Defeat Fenrir, The Wolf In Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice:

One of the toughest battles in Hellblade, the duel against Fenrir requires a lot of patience and you will always have to be on your guard to evade his attacks. In the battle, you will only have to focus on the boss, as there are no minions or any other distractions.

Along with the devastating attacks, Fenrir also has the ability to be invulnerable to your attacks, but there is a way to counter that. To make Fenrir vulnerable, players will have to use Focus. This will allow you to deal damage to the boss, and eventually take it down.

Now that you have Fenrir’s invulnerability out of the way, you can focus on taking him down. While facing Fenrir, players will need a lot of patience. In the fight, players will not get a chance to land several hits, so make every chance count. You will get your chance to attack, after Fenrir does his combo of attacks, which you will have to dodge, and counter attack. Dodge his sweep attacks by moving towards the left or right. Keep in mind that you will be able to land a hit or two, each time you counter-attack. Do not get impatient or greedy and try to attack him more than that, or else you will be killed.

Aside from his sweeping attacks, Fenrir also has an AoE attack, where he jumps into the air and lands on top of you to deal a ton of damage. When you see the wolf jump into the air, get as far away as possible. The further away you are from Fenrir, the better. As he won’t be able to reach you, so staying away from him is an easy escape, before getting close to him when he lands.

Another obstacle that players will face in the fight against Fenrir is Darkness. Your fight against Fenrir will be in a cave, so at random instances, players will be plunged into complete darkness. When this happens, players will have to use Focus and locate Fenrir. When you locate Fenrir, get ready to dodge his attacks, as he will either jump or charge at you.

Keep all of these things in mind, and you will be able to take down Fenrir with ease. He is a very tough opponent and you will need a lot of patience. Being impatient will lead to your death, and with the game’s annoying death system, it will set you back.

Hopefully this guide helped you take down Fenrir, The Monstrous Wolf with ease. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is now available on the PS4 and PC.
