How do you find a fractured wall in PoE?
Fractured walls are found in dark areas. The Fractured walls are marked on the minimap, so when you are close enough and hover over them, it will show the wall’s health bar. Sometimes the fractured walls have a hidden path that has an inaccessible checkpoint.
This means there are sometimes hidden pathways in Path of Exile that don’t have accessible checkpoints or any path leading to them. These hidden pathways are hidden behind the fractured wall. So where are these pathways? Here are some tips for you to find the hidden wall:
- A checkpoint usually has 1, 3, or 4 pathways leading to it. They are very rare checkpoints with 2-way nodes, but are possible to find if the path is long.
- You cannot create more than one pathway in a cardinal direction.
- You cannot overlap an existing path.
- You won’t find nodes directly next to the hidden wall, as a fractured wall spawns in an empty square.

How can dynamite destroy a fractured wall in the Path of Exile?
This is part of the quest “Niko’s Explosive.” It is an optional quest. All you have to do is talk to Niko and destroy a Fractured wall. You must craft two flares and dynamite, then speak to Niko about them. Then destroy it.
Hover your mouse over, and you will see a red border lightning up that’s your cue to throw the dynamite.
Don’t worry, the dynamite won’t do any damage to you, so you can stay there until it blows up. If you decide to stay, it’s best to throw a flare.
If you don’t want to use your flare or watch the wall blow up, you can just throw the dynamite, quickly head back to the light, heal, and then return to the darkness again.
That’s all on how you can find the Fractured Wall and destroy it if you want the rare loot behind it or want to complete Niko’s Quest.
