God Of War Ragnarok is a visually stunning game with awesome combat and story. Once you start the journey, you get immersed in it.

How to Toggle HUD On & Off in God Of War Ragnarok

To switch between the HUD on/off modes, you don’t have to go into Settings every single time. You can add a shortcut for it and use the swiping motion on your controller’s Touch pad to get your desired results. You may look for it under Accessibility, but it’s actually located in the Gameplay Settings. Follow the steps below to enable it:

  • While in-game, pause by pressing the Options button on your controller.

  • Press Circle (O) to go back to the game and test out the changes.

With this enabled, whenever you wish to take in the beautiful environment or want to explore without the compass, you can disable the HUD with one swipe motion and re-enable it during crucial moments. While not seeing the health bars of enemies you are trying to kill can be challenging, it can be fun because you are not distracted by the various UI elements and really feel like Kratos/Atreus in the game.
