Purple walls block your progress in many areas of the new Ori game. This guide explains How To Break Purple Walls In Ori And The Will Of The Wisps as the method is quite tricky and is easily missed if you’re not paying close attention to the colors in the environment.
Before you’re able to break down the purple walls, you will need to unlock the bash ability. I can’t remember if you encounter the purple walls before you have the ability or not but if you’ve come across one blocking your path, follow the main story until you reach the point you have the Bash ability learned. Once learned, you have all the tools you need to break down the purple walls.
How To Break Purple Walls In Ori And The Will Of The WispsThe 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.
