GoW Ragnarok Secrets

Before we start unraveling these secrets, there might be some hidden features that you already know. Regardless, here are some secrets that you might have missed in God of War Ragnarok:

Regain Health & Rage Meter Instantly

There are some boss fights like Thor, Heimdall, Fiske, or Hrist & Mist that require you to your fullest. Before such encounters, if your health is a bit pampered, it might result in Kratos dying. For such moments, you can head and visit the Mystic Gateway. As soon as you use these mystic gateways, your health, Rage meter, and stats replenish fully. This enables Kratos to take on the enemies, bosses, or Odin’s Ravens at his best and fullest. This might be the smartest cheat or secret to know in God of War Ragnarok.

Block the Unblockable Attacks (Red-Colored Ring)

As you progress with God of War Ragnarok, you will encounter three different types of attacks. These are blue, yellow, and red attacks. Although you will conclude that there’s no way to block or parry red-colored attacks, there is a workaround. For that, you need to unlock the Valor Spartan Rage ability. If timed and used right, it negates the damage while gaining an additional burst of healing with the damage buff.

Nevertheless, you cannot miss the AoE attacks or are just about to hit attacks using the Valor ability. This also includes the unblockable grab attacks. But you can strategize to use it some moments before the incoming attack to get the healing and damage buff. You can check out our guide on how to counter yellow, blue, and red-colored attacks for more insight.

Real Tyr Location

Since Odin kills Brok, Kratos and Freya put up a theory post-game that the Tyr is somewhere alive. To find the real Tyr, you need to embark on a journey to Niflheim near the Raven Tree. You can find the real Tyr as a part of the Broken Prison Favour after completing the main Story quests. If you are having trouble finding him, check out our guide on how to find the real Tyr and his location in GoW Ragnarok.

Odin’s Appearances

Odin can shape-shift and impersonate different people or Norse Gods (like Tyr). This was pretty clear after him killing Brok. But this was foreshadowed long back while progressing with the Quest for Tyr. As Kratos and Atreus make their way into Svartalfheim, they encounter a Dwarf spitting from above the bridge. He is Odin impersonating the Dwarf to track Kratos and his companions (practice, maybe?). This easter egg was revealed by the Game Director of GoW Ragnarok.
