How To Break Purple Walls In Ori And The Will Of The Wisps

The Bash skill is an important skill to master. It allows you to use enemies, projectiles, or lanterns stuck to vines, to propel yourself in any direction. This is great for reaching higher areas but in the case of the purple walls, you must use a nearby enemy to destroy them.

Near every purple wall is a slug like enemy that fires purple projectiles in an arching fashion. It’s difficult to time but you must wait for the slug to fire and then intercept the projectile wish bash and launch it into the wall. The item you are bashing off is propelled in the opposite direction. For example, if the wall you are trying to break is up and to the left, you need to aim your character, from the bash attack, down to the right.

This will kick the projectile into the wall if you aimed it correctly. And that’s how you break down purple walls.
