The Battle of Hogwarts follows the events started in the seventh chapter of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 video game.
The following guide explains how to complete The Battle of Hogwarts and eventually advance in the game.
It is a step-by-step game guide and another part in the full Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 video game walkthrough.
The eighth chapter in the game continues Harrys search for Voldemort’s Horcruxes. The last one is Nagini and Harry Potter must reach the boathouse to find Voldemort’s pet.
As soon as the chapter starts you will receive the first objective. Harry is accompanied by Ron and Hermione.
Objective: Get to the boathouse
Advance on the suspended platforms and try to reach the other side of the hall. Pay attention to the left side of the hall because on a platform, you will find the first collectable. Pick it up and you will unlock Fenrir Greyback.
Turn back and advance through the large arcade, the go left.
In the next area you will be attacked by a large number of Death Eaters, but you will also unlock the Apparate spell which allows you to teleport from one place to another.
Use it to get to cover faster and kill all Death Eaters to advance. Make sure you switch between your spells, because some opponents are shielded.
When the area is cleared, go through the hole in the wall to the left and you will reach a large balcony.
Take out all Death Eaters on the other side and those located on the roof. Remember that your Petrificus Totalus spell acts like a sniper rifle.
When you reach the other side, protect Hermione while she unlocks the door, enter and follow the stairs down.
Kill all enemies that attack you and remember that you can always use Apparate to get near obstacles that offer cover.
There is only one path to follow and you cant get stuck.
Eventually, you will reach a large burning hall where more Death Eaters await you. After you kill them you will have to go right because the exit is through a large wooden door; however if you go left, you will see a small entrance. Here is located another collectable, in the right corner. Pick it up and you will unlock Bellatrix Lestrange.
Approach the gate.
Take cover immediately and defend Hermione while she opens the door. Watch the cutscene and then you will start the second part of the chapter.
Hermione will ask you to follow her and Ron; but you should also investigate the stairs, because you will find more collectables, such as the Fear at Hogwarts soundtrack.
You will also be attacked by Death Eaters and you must kill them. Remember that you can cast Apparate to jump from one place to another.
Your goal is to reach the bottom floor where Ron and Hermione await you. When you do that you will be asked to exit the building.
Advance slowly and jump from one cover to another using your Apparate skill, to avoid taking damage.
Kill all Death Eaters and watch the custscene that starts. Get ready for a boss fight against Fenrir Greyback.
During the battle against Fenrir you will play as Hermione Granger. Greyback is a normal Death Eater but what makes him special is the ability to throw poison bottles at you and he has more health then other Death Eaters.
Take cover all the time and when he throws his bottles cast Protego. Stay behind cover because he will not approach you. Cast various spells on him and eventually you will defeat Fenrir Greyback.
It is good to know that during this fight he is also surrounded by Voldemorts lackeys. Kill them all and then concentrate on the boss. Dont forget to use your Apparate skill to investigate the area.
After you defeat him watch the cutscene and continue your adventure as Harry.
To complete this chapter you must follow the stairs all the way down. You will be attacked by many Death Eaters but try to hit the burning torches to cause additional damage.
When you reach the highlighted spot at the bottom of the stairs you will complete the eighth chapter and you will unlock Hogwarts Burning achievement/trophy.
The next chapter in the game is called Surrender.
