Piece of Cake

Beat the Challenge of the Gods

Beating the Challenge of the Gods can be unlocked by completing the game once. You must clear and complete all of Hades challenges. This might be perhaps the hardest trophy to obtain in the entire game, especially challenges 3 and 4 since those are time limited against you. Below are the 5 challenges and how to go about clearing them. Special thanks goes towards PowerPyx for providing the PS3 version of the Challenge of Hades video guides.




Challenge of Hades
Challenge 1:
Fiery Fate
Burn 50 soldiers with the Efreet. They all must die by fire!

Steps to complete challenge:
  • Note that you have two chests which are both alternating versions of the health/magic orb chests. Make use of only the magic orb chest if needed.
  • Get surrounded by 5 Spartan soldiers
  • Upon gathering the Spartan soldiers press the + buttons to summon Efreet and burn them by pressing the button repeatedly. You can also summon Efreet in the air by double jumping with and then pressing the + buttons to have Efreet crash down upon the Spartan soldiers.
  • Kill every Cyclopes that spawn by using the melee attacks of the Gauntlet of Zeus. If a Cyclopes kills a Spartan solider then you'll fail the challenge.
  • Don't use any other type of attacks to kill the Spartans or you'll fail the challenge.
  • Upon successfully burning 50 Spartan soldiers to death, you'll clear the challenge and will unlock Challenge 2.
Challenge of Hades 1 Video Guide:

Challenge 2:
Perfection
Kill 20 Fire Guards without taking any damage.

Steps to complete challenge:
  • Fire Guards will attack you by running towards you and striking, or by performing leaping strikes with both swords.
  • Double jump away from them by pressing and then use the Gauntlet of Zeus's + to perform the Olympic Thunder. This attack will damage all enemies within it's radius. Holding the button will make your attack more powerful with increased range. This will also knock enemies away from you giving you more opportunities to attack or run around.
  • Alternatively you can simply run/roll around on the field and attack the Fire Guards with the + to perform the Olympic Strike. This move will deliver a devastating blow that sends enemies flying back. Holding the button will make your attack more powerful and devastating. This will also knock enemies away from you giving you more opportunities to attack or run around.
  • Upon successfully killing all 20 enemies without taking any damage, you'll clear the challenge and will unlock Challenge 3.
Challenge of Hades 2 Video Guide:

Challenge 3:
Life is Short
You are losing health rapidly. Kill all your enemies to survive.

Steps to complete challenge:
  • Your health will be decreasing rapidly overtime. You must completely kill every enemy that spawns and they most vanish completely for it to count.
  • There are chain prisoners on the walls that you can kill to restore a small portion of your health. Make use of them only wisely.
  • The first enemy will be an Armored Minotaur. I suggest you spam the Gauntlet of Zeus's + Olympic Strike attack to destroy the armor around him. Then melee attack and dodge his attacks until you're prompted to press the button against him. Do so because clearing the mini game will restore most of your lost health than killing him the normal way.
  • After killing the Minotaur, there will be a shit ton of never ending Harplings (the birds). The way you decide to go about killing these will decide on how much health you have left. I found the best way to go about killing these birds is to use the Gauntlet of Zeus's + Olympic Strike attack against them. This move will deliver a devastating blow that will kill them in one hit, plus you'll kill two or more if they're lined up for your attack. Another thing to use while fighting them is the Magic attack Light of Dawn by pressing the + buttons to attack the birds that are too far away from you. This magic attack will kill them in one hit to save you even more time and frustration. After killing the birds kill anybody left on the walls for health. Alternatively, you can spam the Erfeet summoning with the + buttons to attack all surrounding enemies at the same time by pressing the button repeatedly. Then switch to the Blades of Chaos and spam the Spirit of Hercules attack by pressing the + + buttons to kill birds from a range in only one hit.
  • The last opponents are the Death Knights. Do take note that killing a Death Knight will restore a small portion of health back. I highly suggest that you use the Gauntlet of Zeus's + Olympic Strike attack against them right before they even completely spawn. It will only take three hits from the Gauntlet of Zeus's Olympic Strike attack to kill them. Holding the button will make your attack even more powerful and will kill them with only one hit. Quickly kill all the Death Knights this way before your health is depleted. (Note the last Death Knight most completely vanish before your health stops depleting).
  • Upon successfully killing all your enemies to survive, you'll clear the challenge and will unlock Challenge 4.
Challenge of Hades 3 Video Guide:

Challenge 4:
Crunch Time
Break all of the objects before time runs out.

Steps to complete challenge:
  • Two things to keep in mind here. There are a total of 40 objects that you'll have to break and destroy. The last thing is that you're being time limited at a mere 60 seconds, so be fast and to not waste any time here.
  • I suggest using the Gauntlet of Zeus here for it's the most powerful weapon you have and it can destroy the normal objects within one hit.
  • When you start I recommend that you use the Efreet summoning magic by pressing the + buttons to destroy 8 objects right off the bat and ignore pressing the button repeatedly to quickly end the summoning animation.
  • Make your around the outer areas of the field by destroying everything in your way as you run towards the objects. You can simple just spam the Gauntlet of Zeus's normal attacks on everything else if you wish because you'll still destroy everything extremely faster with it or you can either use the Olympic Thunder attack by pressing the + buttons to try and destroy two or more objects at once.
  • Upon successfully breaking all of the objects before time runs out, you'll clear the challenge and will unlock Challenge 5.
Challenge of Hades 4 Video Guide:

Challenge 5:
Epic Brawl
Kill all your enemies

Steps to complete challenge:
  • If you completed the game on Spartan Mode then this challenge will be nothing towards you. There's no time limit and no possible way to fail this challenge except by dying or getting shattered while you're in stone status. Keep in mind that you have a health orb chest and a magic orb chest so make use of these two chests wisely.
  • The first opponents will be against the Cursed Harplings. Simply use the Gauntlet of Zeus's normal attacks against them to make quick work of them. While fighting the birds Fire Guards will start spawning along with the birds to attack you. Kill them along with the birds as you normally would.
  • The next phase will be against the Medusa (Gorgon Queens) along with more Fire Guards. It's best to quickly kill the Medusa as fast as possible for they will be trying to turn you into stone for a one hit kill from the Fire Guards attacks if they manage to hit you while you're turned into stone. I suggest dodging by using the button and when given the right perfect chance to attack everyone. Jump into the air with and use the Gauntlet of Zeus's Olympic Thunder by pressing the + buttons to damage and knock every enemy back and repeat the jumping attack again towards the Medusa to kill her much faster. Rinse and repeat until you enter the next phase.
  • The next opponents are the Cyclopes which are surprisingly easy to kill with the Gauntlet of Zeus's normal attacks. They will go down in about six hits each.
  • After the Cyclopes have been defeated the Medusa enemies will spawn again and then Fire Guards and back to the Cursed Harplings birds. You should have no trouble after facing them for the last final phases. Remember that you can use the two chests if you're in need of health and magic replenishing.
  • Upon successfully killing all your enemies, you'll clear the challenge and will unlock your trophy.

You know there is something fun about challenge 5 when you realise the Cyclops only takes two uncharged hits from L1 and Square, while the common fireguard takes two charged hits from L1 with triangle. Got killed in the last phase by the medusa/fireguard combo. Should have remembered to use magic.
