Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II - Chapter 1 Guide

Welcome to the walkthrough for Chapter 1 of Senua's Saga: Hellblade II. In this guide, we’ll cover how to solve puzzles, find collectibles, and progress through the chapter step-by-step.

Collectibles This chapter has the following collectibles:

  • Lorestangir: 1 (Total: 1/18)
  • Hidden Faces: 0 (Total: 0/17)
  • Achievements: 1


After the opening scene, you’ll find Senua on the shore. Move towards the silhouette at the top; Senua will climb up when you reach the wall.

As you explore the new area, you’ll find a pillar, a collectible called a Lorestangir. There are 18 Lorestangir in the game, which light up in red when collected. Use Focus (E on PC or LT/RT on Xbox) to collect it.

Continue forward until you see a figure walking towards an encampment. The figure will get into a fight and fall off a cliff. Ignore the cliff and go left, passing a ruined house and down the path. At the bottom, you’ll enter an area with many corridors. Hug the walls to your left to reach a wide area with floating debris.

Ahead, you’ll find a crevice. Use Focus on the symbol to reveal it, then line it up with something in the environment to solve the puzzle. Turn around and look behind the big rock in the middle. You’ll see a red symbol above the rock. Step back to trigger the symbol.

Return to the symbol, now white, and squeeze through the rocks. You’ll find yourself on the shore with a wrecked ship. Turn left from the ship to find another crevice. Squeeze through to reach another wrecked ship, triggering a scene where Senua gains a sword.

Continue forward and fight an enemy. The combat mechanics from the prequel carry over:

  • Block with Control on PC or RB on Xbox.
  • Parry by pressing the block button before an attack.
  • Fast attack with Left click on PC or X on Xbox.
  • Strong attack with Right click on PC or Y on Xbox.
  • Dodge with Space on PC or A on Xbox.

Attack the enemy with fast attacks and strong attacks if they block. Block or parry fast attacks and dodge strong attacks.

Hop over the wood marked with white chalk to trigger a scene and fight. Continue to the shore and face another ambush. Follow the toppled flag and cries for help to enter a ship. Crawl inside, move forward, and shove aside objects blocking your path.

At the end, trigger a scene and exit the ship. Move forward for another ambush and fight. This enemy dodges and blocks frequently and may try to grapple you. Mash the attack button to free yourself.

Afterward, another enemy will attack. Follow the shadows to trigger a final scene and face the slaver Senua has been chasing. Use all the skills you’ve learned. The slaver counterattacks in the middle of combos, so dodge his final strong attack after his 3-4 fast attacks.
