How to Remove Red Vines with Mushrooms in Vanaheim God of War Ragnarok

To remove the red vines with mushrooms in Vanaheim in God of War Ragnarok, aka the heavy vines, you simply have to play through the main mission until you unlock the appropriate ability. There’s a boss in Vanaheim that you have to defeat. After this battle, your… um… party member is going to get a special power to basically prep the vines to be destroyed by the Blades of Chaos. The boss battle will actually introduce you to this mechanic, so you’ll be fully equipped to deal with these obstacles. This is as far as I can go without wading into spoiler territory. If you don’t want any spoilers, stop reading now. They are relatively minor, but still.

So, to remove the God of War red heavy vines with mushrooms in Vanaheim, you need to push the main quest until Freya and Kratos fight Nidhogg. During this battle, Freya will start firing Hex arrows to create weak points for you to exploit. At one point, Nidhogg will clamber onto a pillar covered in vines. Freya will mark them with Hex arrows, and you have to use the Blades to explode them. After the battle is over, Freya will get her powers back. Go back to any wall of vines, and use Freya to shoot a Hex arrow at them. Then, switch to the blades and hold L2 and R2 to aim at the Hex symbol. Chuck a blade at them to bring the barrier down.
