God of War Ragnarok: How to Beat Einherjar Archers
Einherjar Archers, as their name suggests, support their allies from a distance with projectiles — either from a sling or crossbow. Their attacks cause bifrost, which can make them a frustrating foe if they're not taken care of quickly.
As with any ranged opponent, killing Archers should be a priority. You really don't want them covering Kratos in bifrost, because you're then susceptible to additional bifrost attacks from melee Einherjars. Thankfully, an Archer's projectiles are relatively slow, so as long as you're paying attention, it shouldn't be too hard to dodge their fire.
Once you're in close, Archers are easy kills. They stun very quickly, so barehanded blows are always option, but be careful: if you don't defeat them in just a couple of combos or so, Archers can actually teleport to a safer distance. As such, freezing them in place with a good axe throw can be a good idea.
