When you watch a lot of movies set on farms growing up, you tend to assume that hay is a very soft, pliable substance. It is not. Hay is scratchy, uncomfortable, and when bundled or piled together, surprisingly dense and heavy. I guarantee if you tried to punch a hay bale, you’d just hurt your hand and arm. Perhaps you’d assume that this would be less of a problem for the spiritually-empowered Kena in Kena: Bridge of Spirits, but you’d be wrong. Here’s how to destroy hay piles in Kena: Bridge of Spirits.

As you travel about the world in Kena: Bridge of Spirits, you’ll come across plenty of random hay piles on the ground. Most of these piles are just that: random piles, no particularly interesting needles to be found. However, some of these piles have goodies under them, and you can tell when one does when they emit little sparkles from the top. Those sparkles usually mean there’s a Rot hidden in there, and you definitely want that. However, these piles are apparently so densely packed that no mortal hands can move them, so you’ll need to rely on some distinctly non-mortal methods.

How to Destroy Hay Piles in Kena: Bridge of Spirits

To Destroy Hay Piles in Kena: Bridge of Spirits:

  1. Find a hay pile that’s sparkling to signify something under it
  2. Look around nearby for a Forest Tear and activate it to turn the Rot into the Rot Cloud
  3. Direct the Rot Cloud to destroy the pile with a slam or spin attack

Whenever you see a hay pile that’s emitting sparkles, not only is that a signal that there’s something nifty under it, it’s also a signal that a Forest Tear is nearby. Find that Tear and activate it to transform your Rot into their combined Rot Cloud form. Direct the Cloud over to the hay pile and have it use either a slamming or spinning attack to destroy it. With any luck, there’ll be another Rot under there to add to your posse.
