You will have come across the red and blue brambles a few times by now and you have encountered a new kind. These are a red color but look like they have a kind of dried fungus growing on the branches. Using the chaos blades does not burn these down like the other brambles, so how do you clear them away?
Mild Spoiler Warning – When you get the ability to destroy these brambles, you will know it. It comes as part of the main story.
To destroy the fungus brambles, you will need to have access to the hex arrows. When you have these, you can press down on the D-Pad to switch between the stun and hex arrows. Once you have it selected, shoot an arrow on the brambles. You will see the pink rune marker stick to these brambles. Once this has been done, you can use the same L2+R2 attack with the chaos blades to burn these brambles.
If you are unsure what do to, the video guide below will show you how to clear the mushroom brambles in God of War Ragnarok.
