Baldur Boss Fight Guide

First Phase

Opening Attack

GoW Baldur - Phase One Opening.png

The first phase of the match will be similar to the first time you fought against Baldur, then known as The Stranger. Come out swinging, but be prepared for counterattacks which you can parry.

Attack 1

GoW Jotunheim in Reach - First Phase.png

Not an attack by Baldur himself, but rather Freya, where roots will explode from the ground and wrap around you to prevent you and Baldur from being able to come into contact with one another. You'll have to break free of these.

Attack 2

GoW Baldur - Phase One Attack 2.png

A standard attack carried over from your first encounter with him, Baldur will rush you for a quick punch. Parry these and hit back.

Second Phase

Opening Attack

GoW Baldur - Phase Two Opening.png

You will begin the phase back-to-back with Atreus, similar to how you did against Magni and Modi. You won't have to do much, and once you're back in full control of Kratos once again, wait for an opening.

Attack 1

GoW Jotunheim in Reach - Second Phase.png

Similar to the roots from the first phase, this attack isn't done by Baldur but by Freya instead. She'll use Thamur's hand to send a wave of ice at you, which you must block.

Attack 2

GoW Baldur - Second Phase Attack 2.png

Baldur will speed from side to side before rushing at you with a punch.

Attack 3

GoW Baldur - Second Phase Attack 3.png

A wave of fire or ice will be sent your way, which is quickly followed up by fireballs or ice shafts. Block these strikes and try to get close to him for a strike.

Third Phase

Opening Attack

GoW Jotunheim in Reach - Third Phase.png

Be wary of the different creatures summoned by Freya to fight you. It is best to take care of them first before concentrating on Baldur.

Attack 1

GoW Baldur - Third Phase Attack 1.png

Baldur will jump straight up into the air and crash down on you, creating a circular area of effect hazard depending on the element he is currently using.

Fourth Phase

Opening Attack

GoW Jotunheim in Reach - Fourth Phase.png

The phase begins with you in Spartan Rage. Make sure to make as much of the opportunity as possible and deal as much damage as you can against Baldur. This final phase will be an amalgamation of all the attacks that he has presented thus far.

Tips and Strategy

Fighting against Baldur one final time requires you to at least have gotten used to seeing incoming attacks when an enemy is preparing them and dodging. Fighting against the Valkyries goes a long way to help practice you with mastering these skills. Play the match patiently, and pay attention to Freya's attempts to disrupt or separate the two of you in the first two phases of the battle.
