God of War PS4: How to defeat the Valkyries in the PS4
If you're about to start a fight with one of these bosses, then it's good to make one thing clear: every battle against a Valkyrie is different from the others. However, there are some general tips you can use to bring home victory against these hostile enemies.
The first suggestion we have to give you is to not even think about fighting a Valkyrie if you have not reached at least level 6. The advice would be to devote yourself to these clashes only after completing the main quest; in any case, if you want to face them during your adventure, know that your level must be at least above the sixth.
Secondly, choose carefully the the right time to attack. The Valkyries are equipped with very powerful attacks, and blending random buttons will take you to certain defeat. In any case, never forget to bring with you a stone of resurrectionin case you should be defeated in combat by any unblockable attack. The moment you see a ring of red lightBe very careful: it means that Valkyrie is loading an air attack that cannot be blocked. The only way you can counter this move is to order Atrues to fire an arrow at your opponent, causing him to stop an attack that would otherwise most likely be lethal.
A further piece of advice we feel like giving you is that magical attacks cause much more damage compared to standard combo attacks. Precisely for this reason, remember to take advantage of this aspect at the right time, maximizing the damage you inflict on the Valkyries.
