Hellblade Guide: How To Defeat Surtr, The Fire Boss

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

At an early stage of the game, players will be given a choice between two paths in Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. One path leads to Valravn, the God of Illusions, while the other leads to Surtr, the fire boss.

We have already guided players in their battle against Valravn, but if you choose the Fire path, rather than the Illusion path, you will face the fire boss called Surtr. Out of the two boss fights, the battle against Surtr is the easier one, but that doesn’t mean that it’s going to be a walk in the park. Even though Surtr might be the easier boss to beat, he can still kill you with ease.

How To Defeat Surtr In Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice:

One of the reasons behind Surtr being an easier boss is because he is very sluggish. His slow movements and attacks are easy to evade and counter. At the early parts of the fight, Surtr will slowly approach you and kick or slam his sword on the ground. You can dodge both of these attacks by strafing left or right, and attack him directly after strafing. This will allow you to get a few good hits in, and do some considerable damage. Make sure you hit him with heavy attacks, as they are more effective.

After that, Surtr will get on his knees and surround himself with flames. Do not be intimidated by this, as you can run around him and attack his back. When attacking Surtr from behind, the flames will not harm you and you will be able to do a ton of damage. As mentioned before, use heavy attacks, as they will do a ton of damage. Continue to attack him, until he knocks you away and stands up.

If Surtr is able to light himself on fire, then you will have to play very carefully. When on fire, Surtr’s attacks do additional damage, which will kill you very quickly and easily. To put out the fire, players can simply use Senua’s Focus Vision. Similar to the fight against Valravn, Focus Vision dispels any magic the boss uses, turning them back into their normal forms. This will allow you to dispel Surtr’s magic and take him down with ease, without having to worry about the incredible amount of damage he does, when he is on fire.

Repeat the steps above, and you will eventually take down the fire boss. Hopefully this guide helped you take down Surtr with ease. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is now available on the PS4 and PC.
