Middle-earth: Shadow of War -- How to Destroy Tribe Monuments

Having trouble figuring out how to destroy Tribe Monuments in Shadow of War? Here's how to do it!

Talion and Celebrimbor return for some more orc-slaying action in Middle-earth: Shadow of War, and this time, they’re out for more than just the captains’ heads. While clearing out an Outpost, the player might learn of what passes for art in orcish culture when they happen across a Tribe Monument.

The orcs erect these grisly Monuments to honor their Overlords, and given Talion’s undying grudge against orcs (and the fact that the Monuments are marked on your map), it’d be pretty reasonable to assume that you’re supposed to destroy them.

While you’ll find that your sword and bow aren't quite up to the task, destroying monuments in Shadow of War is actually pretty straightforward: just climb to the top of the Monument, hit the prompted button, and then Celebrimbor will destroy it with his wraith hammer.

Players will be rewarded with 250 experience points, a gem, the Vandal achievement/trophy (if it’s your first destroyed Monument), and the sight of orcs scrambling away in fear. So be sure to take advantage of their temporary confusion!
