How To Get The Forge Nornir Chest In God Of War Ragnarok

Learn everything there is about unlocking the Nornir Chest located in the Forge of God Of War Ragnarok

The Forge Nornir Chest in God Of War Ragnarok is just one of many Nornir Chests that you can hunt down in the game, which contains Jotunn Apples and Horn Of Blood Meads, used in order to upgrade Kratos’ health and Rage bar. These chests are scattered across the Nine Realms, and unlocking them in one go isn’t easy, as some chests may require you to make use of other equipment. It is also worth pointing out that you do not need to collect every single Nornir chest in the game to unlock the Full Belly Trophy.

Key Highlights

  • The Nornir chests in God Of War Ragnarok are essential to collect in order to fully upgrade both Kratos’ HP and Rage meter to the maximum parameters.
  • One of the Nornir chests is located in The Forge area, which is located in the realm of Svartalfheim.
  • Players will first need to solve a puzzle in order to access and unlock the Nornir chest in the area.
  • The puzzle revolves around destroying Three different Runic stones near the Nornir chest’s location.
  • It is worth stating that players won’t be able to access the puzzle since it requires using the Draupnir Spear, a weapon unlocked later on in God Of War Ragnarok.

The Location Of The Nornir Chest in The Forge

As shown in the image above, you can find the Forge area Nornir Chest on the Western side of the Realm of Svartalfheim. You will come across the Forge area very early on during the beginning hours of the game because it is here where Kratos and Atreus venture in order to free Týr, the Norse Pantheon God Of War.

The Nornir chest will come across your way whilst venturing through the uphill area; however, you will not be able to access it yet.

Steps To Solve The Nornir Chest Puzzle

The steps to unlocking the Forge Nornir Chest are pretty simple, as all you need to do is destroy three different runic statue-like rocks around the area here. But most importantly, you will need to keep in mind that destroying them will not be possible unless you have the Draupnir Spear unlocked.

Without spoiling anything (since the quest to acquire it is pretty amazing, to say the least), the spear will unlock toward the mid-game quests, which is specifically Chapter 10. You will essentially need to use the Draupnir Spear’s ranged ability, where Kratos can launch it onto enemies or the environment, and then by pressing the Triangle button, you can then detonate the launched spears like a Remote-controlled bomb.

Lastly, all runic three statues can be destroyed all at once using the Draupnir Spear detonation or one-by-one, so choose whichever way you want to work it out to complete this short and easy puzzle.

As shown in the image that we have captured for you, the First rune that you need to plunge the spear into will be directly behind the Nornir Chest itself near the worn-out bridge wooden poles. Simply throw the spear onto the runic statue, which is perched on the side of the rock, and detonate it by pressing the triangle button.

Second Rune

The next rune that we need to destroy is pretty simple to find yet again, like the first. Simply face towards the Nornir Chest, rotate to the back at a 180 degrees angle, and you should be able to spot the second runic statue. Once again, precisely throw the spear at it and detonate it to destroy it.

Third Rune

Lastly, the third and last rune can be found near the platform where you rode the cart for the first time in order to reach this area of Svartalfheim. Simply retrace your steps back to the rail cart section of the area, and you should be able to get an angle to throw the spear and destroy it. Now head back to the chest and reap the rewards inside it to permanently increase either Kratos’ HP or his Rage ability meter.

The Wrap-Up

According to a Subreddit Post, you can head back to the Forge area once you have completed the game. It is pretty simple, as you just need to grab the manual Ferry near the Aurvangr Wetlands where you first entered the Realm. From there, you simply need to use the cart ride to get back uphill again in order to collect this Nornir chest using the Draupnir spear.

God Of War Ragnarok is fresh off the high heels of winning several major accolades from The Game Awards 2022, which is well-deserved due to the sheer amount of richness in all aspects of the game, from its heartfelt storytelling to its riveting gameplay. The Easter Eggs In God Of War Ragnarok are sure to entice players as they reference other first-party Playstation Studios titles.

In contrast to the first game, Ragnarok is filled to the brim with content to complete; as you will no doubt find yourself collecting every single collectible, there is, such as the Lake of Nine Artifacts, as well as conquering all of the Muspelheim Trials. At the end of getting 100 percent completion, you may even struggle against endgame bosses such as King Hrolf or even find it tedious to collect every single of Odin’s Ravens in God Of War Ragnarok.

However, for now, this wraps up our guide to the Forge Nornir Chest in the game and how you can acquire it. If you have any further questions or queries about the game in general, then feel free to ask them in the comment section below, and we will be sure to get back to you as soon as possible!
