Break into the Hive

You will reach the entrance of the hive after coming up the ramp after crossing the bridge. It is surrounded by more red vines with pulsating nodes. Solving this puzzle is easy once you learn the pattern in this God of War Break into the Hive Guide. There are nine vertical vines and three horizontal ones. If you attack one of them, they will just regrow which will frustrate you. So you have to follow these instructions to get rid of them:

  1. Walk up to a vine at the door then turn left and you will see a group of three vines. Do not attack them one by one.
  2. Using your axe, hit the three vines all in one shot.
  3. Next, look above to see the roots connected to the next three vines in your right-hand side. Line them up and destroy them altogether with your Leviathan axe.
  4. For the last three nodes, turn to the right side of the path and you will see them, including the vine which is in front of the hive's door. Again, align them, aim for the nodules and hit them with your axe.
