The walkthrough


This is the ultimate guide to complete 100% of God of War Ragnarok

This is more than just a Platinum Trophy guide, we’ll get everything.

Basically, we’ll farm everything, every piece of Hacksilver and crafting material or consumable will be found and looted if you follow this guide. You’ll finish your first playthrough with plenty of materials to do anything you want in your New Game+ after.

I’ve planned this guide to do everything in the most efficient order, so that we never hit difficulty walls and complete the full game with as little deaths as possible. Every upgrade that can help will be obtained at the right moment, you’ll be warned in advance of every ambush and trap, there will be an optimal strategy for each of the Bosses and hard encounters you’ll face in God of War Ragnarok.


  • If you’ve never played a God of War game before, I guarantee you will Platinum this game without any problems if you follow my guide.
  • If you’re a casual gamer or 70+ year old with bad reflexes, I guarantee you will Platinum this game too.
  • If you’re a veteran God of War player, I guarantee you won’t regret following this guide, it will save you a lot of time and you’ll probably learn a few tricks and hidden game mechanics.

We’ll start the game with a few basic combat mechanics, get some early upgrades and progressively add more tools to our arsenal and explore some advanced combat tactics as well as new game mechanics which only exist in God of War Ragnarok.


The Build

We’ll start with a very simple and forgiving build focusing on high STUN potential and Health Regen after using a finisher. This will carry us through the early and mid game until we move on towards our end game build, which I won’t spoil for now, but you can rest assured: we’ll be as powerful as a one can possibly be in God of War Ragnarok.

The Guide’s format

This is a double format Guide. There is a full video walkthrough AND a very compact text walkthrough.

The video walkthrough will contain more detailed combat tips, so I suggest you check them out.

Each video will have a list of timecodes with all the important moments in the episodes:

  • Timecode for each Item obtained
  • Timecode for each Combat tip and boss strategy
  • Timecode for each Important info given
  • Timecode for each Trophy obtained


All cut scenes and NPC dialogues will be included, but if you want to skip them it will be quite easy to do so: each video will be spilt into chapters, with clear labels so you can skip the parts you don’t want to watch or would rather watch on your own.

The text version of my God of War Ragnarok walkthrough should also be quite useful, it is very compact, and whenever the direction or explanation isn’t detailed enough, you can always check the video to get a clearer direction.



Q: Will I get all trophies, including the Platinum, if I follow your guide?

A: Yes of course. But much more than that. You’ll get everything you can possibly get in one playthrough. All items, gear, runic attacks, talismans, etc. Everything.


Q: What difficulty setting will you be playing on?

A: Give Me God of War. But this is entirely up to you. You can 100% the game on any difficulty setting. There’s no trophy tied to difficulty, all you get is a more challenging experience. You can lower the difficulty at any point during the game if you struggle. This walkthrough will be on Give Me God of War difficulty to show you the best way to beat every encounter.


Q: Do I have to follow your character build exactly ?

A: No. You can follow this guide and do your own build and you’ll be fine. However, this is a very optimized guide and I believe the builds I use are extremely fun and powerful. Some strategies in the later part of the game are specific to my build, so you’ll have to find your own strategies if you don’t have the same setup.


Q: Can I follow your guide if I’m on PC?

A: Yes. This guide will also work for PC once it becomes available after the Playstation Exclusive period is over.


Q: I love your guides! How can I support your work?

A: There are many ways to help me become a full time guide writer:

Best God of War Ragnarok Settings

Most of those are subjective, so do whatever works best for you. But these are the settings which worked the best for me and I’ll explain why some of them are a big help and a huge quality of life upgrade.

  • Puzzle Aim Assist: On
  • Puzzle Timing: Extended +
  • Lock-on Camera: Auto-Target+
Note: some puzzles can be just downright frustrating with their short timing, so these settings help alot and will save you a lot of time and keep you sane.
  • Auto Pick Up: Full

Auto Pick-up is a huge quality of life change and it also increases your chance of survival in some close battles. Picking up health orbs automatically means you can keep your focus on the enemies and be ready to block or dodge without losing your focus by starting at the ground looking for an HP or Rage orb.

  • Interact: X  / Evade O (Swap Buttons)

Most games use O to dodge and X to interract, so it makes sense to swap these. It just feels more natural.

  • Repeated Buton Presses: Hold
Mashing buttons was fun when I was 9 years old. It’s no longer the same so I really like holding instead of mashing.
  • Swipe Up: High Contrast Display
We’ll use this shortcut to toggle High Contrast Display ON and OFF. It will be useful to see objects we can interact with when we struggle to find them.
  • Swipe Left: Quick Turn
You can also Quick Turn with the default setting (Holding L1 + D-Pad Down) but it’s not very practical. Swiping Left or Swiping down feels more natural. Up to you.
  • Target Colour: Orange
  • Interact Colour: Red
  • Background Colour: White
Note: pick any colors you like but I recommend having a very vivid color for Target and Interact and eventually a White Background to make them stand out.
  • Miniboss Checkpoints: On (Doesn’t work if you play on No Mercy or God of War difficulty)
  • Sprint: Auto (in combat there’s only advantages to sprinting, not having to press the left thumbstick everytime is a big quality of life change and it helps reduce the misuse of Spartan Range, which requires pressing L3 + R3)


Give Me God of War
Note: entirely up to you. You can 100% the game on any difficulty setting. There’s no trophy tied to difficulty, all you get is a more challenging experience. You can lower difficulty at any point during the game. I will play on Give Me God of War difficulty to show you the best way to beat every encounter.

After waking up, move up towards the objective (Press R3 to be pointed in the right direction if you get lost)
Move up until we encounter our first fight with Raiders
Check the video for basic combat tips
  • Frost Awaken (Triangle) followed by R2 > R2 > R2 > R2 combo. Our go-to move to apply Frost and do a lot of damage while juggling weak enemies.
  • Blocking, Parrying
  • Dodging and Rolling
  • Tripping enemies with Axe Throws
  • Freezing Throws to neutralize one enemy
  • Spartan Kick / Shield Slam to shatter frozen enemies
Note: try to use Axe Throw and Leviathan’s Fury skills as often as possible. We want to level those skills up to the max ASAP to unlock their full potential.
Push tree aside, check bear
Vault over tree, move up throught either path
After breaking the first tree with an Axe Throw, go right to find a wooden chest:
  • 91 Hacksilver

  • 68 Hacksilver
Keep going until you encounter 2 Raiders
Hug right wall to kill another Raider
Find corpse leaning against tree:
  • 22 Hacksilver

Go under the bridge, kill 3 more Raiders
Climb up wall, loot stone chest:
  • Forged Iron

Wooden chest to the right:
  • 95 Hacksilver
Climb up, kill more Raiders

Boss fight: BjörnCheck the video for detailed guide
Tips: Frost Awaken as much as possible. A hit with Frost Awaken active does a lot of Stagger damage and can potentially interrupt the Bear’s attacks, even the red circle ones.
You can try to Parry the yellow circle attacks if you feel confident, but it’s safer to just Dodge them.
Use the R2 > R2 > R2 > R2 combo after Dodging or Parrying an attack.

Combat tips:

  • Trip enemies with Axe Throws then Sonic Arrows do extra Stun on downed enemies

Tips to defeat Thor:
  • First start by keeping your distances and focus on Dodging to learn how to avoid all of Thor’s moves
  • Phase 1: build Stun meter with your fist until you get a finishing move to trigger Phase 2.
  • Phase 2: same thing as phase 1 but now use Leviathan Axe and Frost Breach followed by R2 > R2 > R2 combos until you get another finisher to trigger Phase 3.
  • Phase 3: Use the stone pillars in this arena to smash them on Thor and do high damage
  • Use Frost Awaken / Frost Breach after Dodging one of Thor’s attacks. Frost Breach will interrupt most of Thor’s moves even the red circle ones. Follow it up with an R2 > R2 > R2 combo.
  • Save your Spartan rage until you’re low on health

Note: why not Glacial Rake? It’s a great skill, I know, but after playing this game for 500+ hours, I can tell you that there are better combos to use with the Leviathan Axe, and you’ll end up almost never using Glacial Rake. So let’s save that XP for other skills we want ASAP.
Note 2: also, if you’ve mastered any skill to “Gold” by now, don’t check them in your skill tree or the game will force you to purchase a Mod Token. I’ve got an optimized order in which to purchase all skills and mod tokens to fit our build.
Cut scene
Follow Atreus until a bunch of corpse on the right, loot pouch:
     25 Hacksilver
Keep going until you encounter a Hel-walker hanging from a tree
Shoot the branch to bring it down, kill it
Combat tips:

  • Use Scorched Sweep, it’s one of the best blades skills, we’ll use it a lot. It’s especially good against multiple enemies to hit them all at once and keep them at bay.
  • Also use Hyperion Grapple for big stun damage.

Go down and turn left, go all the way down the pit to loot a pouch:
     25 Hacksilver
Go back up and follow Atreus
At the crossroads go left first, kill Hel-Walker tied to a tree
Combat tips:

  • R2 > R2 > R1 > R1 combo gets you to do the finisher move a lot quicker than with the regular R1 full combo

Combat tips:

  • Use the trees to smash Raiders after unfreezing them (2 Trees to use)

Follow the Huldra’s Shop tutorial, craft either Stone Wall Shield or Dauntless Shield. It depends on your playstyle preferences.
If you like Parrying and feel like you can be good at timing parries, the Dauntless Shield is the better option.
If you’d rather take a safer approach and block everything (except the red circle attacks, which you’ll have to dodge), then Stone Wall Shield is the way to go.
Rest assured we’ll end up crafting and maxing out all shields in the long run anyway, so this is a short-term decision. Don’t worry too much about it.
For now I’ll go with Stone Wall Shield for 2 reasons:
  1. We’re really squishy at the start, especialy on GMGoW difficulty. So this a much safer approach
  2. We’ll buy and upgrade the Fortified Husk Arm Guards and Belt, which will give us a nice bonus to blocking, which synergizes well with the Stone Wall Shield.
  • Stone Wall Shield

Combat tips:
  • Most important thing to do is to not let The Hateful buff up. Make sure you interrupt it. Ateus arrows are best.
  • Don’t damage The Hateful at the start. Wait for the 2 adds to spawn. Use Rage to kill both adds quickly and make this a fair fight.
  • If you damage The Hateful, he’ll probably heal up and level up while you’re dealing with the adds. If he’s unharmed, he won’t try to heal up and level up.
  • Once the 2 adds are down, it’s all about learning to dodge the red attacks. Everything else keep your shield up.
  • Use your resurrection stone if you die.
  • Cursed Empress Handles
  • 2 Sovereign Coals
  • 1 Chaos Spark
  • 250 Hacksilver
  • 5 Dust of Realms
