If you are taking your first steps in God of War Ragnarok and you’ve never played the 2018 prequel, chances are you’re having a hard time finding a system for open chests. In that case, continue reading the guide to find out how to unlock each type of crate in the exclusive PlayStation.
Red and standard chests
The first category of chests is the easiest to manage. Whether it’s the classic trunks or the red-colored ones, their opening is immediate: in these cases, all you need to do is move the protagonist of God of War Ragnarok in front of them and press the appropriate button for interaction, so that Kratos can open or destroy them and then recover their contents.
God of War Ragnarok’s Nornir chests are more complex and cannot be opened until a simple environmental puzzle is completed. The containers in this category offer different types of puzzles that must be solved in an almost identical way to what was seen in the previous chapter. In some cases it is enough to destroy three vases with a luminous rune on them that are hidden around, never too far from the location of the chest. Other times it serves strike three gongs with a ranged weapon (including Leviathan launch) in moments. The last type of puzzle involves the player hitting the column scattered around the area with a weapon, so that each of the three objects highlights the correct rune and unlocks the chest: in these cases it is necessary to analyze the scenario to find out which are the three runes to appear on the columns. Regardless of what the puzzle is, once completed you can go to the Nornir chest and open it.
The golden chests that emit a strong bright glow are not blocked and you can collect their contents without any problem. The only obstacle consists in their finding: in this case, in fact, the difficulty lies in finding the way of access to their position. Legendary chests are usually located in places that are complex to reach and that require careful analysis of the surrounding environment.
