Who do you fight at the beginning of God of War? The first boss fight in God of War is against an unnamed character known only as “The Stranger,” and defeating him requires players to make the most of Kratos’ limited skills. Since this fight takes place so early in God of War, players will likely have earned only enough XP to upgrade one or two skills.
Who is the boss in God of War 1? Ares, the original god of war, unless Kratos unseats him off of his throne and title. This was no easy feat and his boss fight is a testament to that. The battle between Ares and Kratos is one of the first truest combats between two gods.
How do you beat the boss in God of War? So basically: bait his attack, dodge to the side, land a few hits, dodge back again to avoid his disengage attack. Repeat that ad nauseum until he gets down to about a quarter health – remember to really try hard not to get hit by his blinding ranged attacks too – and then you really need to concentrate.
