God of Ragnarok has taken players on a rollercoaster ride not only with the exhilarating battles but also in the emotional sense. With past characters from 2018 GOW and some newly introduced ones, players found themselves attached with each of them in a unique way. The same holds true for Brok, the finest but also the grumpiest blacksmith. Many GOW fans want to know whether Brok dies in God of War Ragnarok. If you’re yet to play the game or haven’t progressed as far, keep in mind that this article contains late-game spoilers for GOW Ragnarok. You have been warned!
What Happens to Brok in GOW Ragnarok?
To come straight to the point, Brok dies in the game. The comical and intelligent dwarf is fatally stabbed by the hands of Odin who is disguised as Tyr. Yes, Odin kills the defenceless Brok in a fit of rage. We’ll explain how his death transpired in God of War Ragnarok a little more in detail:
How Does Brok Die
After Atreus completes the mask that Odin always wanted, the little boy escapes into the Realm between Realms and gets reunited with his father. Kratos’ allies then huddle up at Sindri’s house. This bunch includes Tyr, Kratos, Atreus, Freya, Freyr, Mimir, Brok and Sindri. All of them are busy planning their next move against Odin – the All-Father. At this point in time, Tyr speaks up and tells them of a secret passage into Asgard that no one knows about. While everyone nods and seems to agree with this plan, Brok calls Tyr out. He questions him as to why he didn’t reveal this information much earlier. But Tyr smartly deflects the question and grabs the mask to show everyone that this is what they were waiting for. He has everyone convinced again but not Brok.

GOW Ragnarok’s comical relief – Brok – is still unconvinced and grows more suspicious of Tyr as he starts walking away. The dwarf’s repeated questioning seems to rattle Tyr. In a surprising turn of events, the Norse God’s calm demeanor rapidly transforms when he stabs Brok in the chest. The poor dwarf collapses to the ground as his brother Sindri comes rushing. It is then revealed that Odin was impersonating Tyr all along. He then holds Atreus at knifepoint and eventually vanishes away with the mask.
Brok’s Last Moments
In his last words, the great blacksmith tells Sindri, ‘y’gotta let go’. Brok knew that Sindri brought him back from the dead once before. But unfortunately, he couldn’t find every single part of Brok’s soul. This means that Brok can never be brought back and worse still, he will have no afterlife because of his incomplete soul. A truly heartbreaking end for a character that most fans have grown to love since GOW 2018.
