God of War Ragnarok: How to Beat Fiske
Fiske is a large, armoured warrior who wields a deadly-looking scythe. Fortunately for Kratos, Fiske is a relatively straightforward opponent, and most of his attacks are on the slow side.
Really, the biggest obstacle in dealing with Fiske is getting used to the timing of his attacks. He likes to delay his strikes just enough that you might find yourself trying to parry too early. Patience is required, then, especially when he starts swinging his scythe from side to side as part of his basic combo.
Some of these blows can be blocked, but others will require a parry. Keep in mind that Fiske is only vulnerable at the end of his combos; parrying midway through won't be enough to throw him off, and he'll just keep going. So again, patience!
Fiske also likes to fire off some magical blasts, but these attacks can be cut short by hitting him with a shield smash whenever you see the blue rings. This means that you should try and stay at close range, despite his aggressive scythe-swinging. If you're at a safer distance, you may not reach him before his magic is unleashed.
