Valkyries (No Hits)

God of War has optional bosses that you must slay in order to obtain a trophy called “The Chooser of the Slain” It’s quite a challenging trophy that requires you to slay all the 9 Valkyries that are in the game. However, you can only fight the last Valkyrie Sigrun after you’ve defeated the other 8 Valkyries and placed all of their helmets at the Council of Valkyries area in Midgard. Gaming Instincts has you covered on how to kill each Valkyrie and what’s the best way to do it and how to do it without getting hit a single time.
