There are 5 collectible spots in God of War Althoff Rig. This walkthrough will take you chronologically through all of the collectibles in Althjof’s Rig Region in God of War: Ragnarök. Everything required for awards and completeness is supplied. Nothing is lost, and everything may be found after the narrative. It is suggested that you gather everything after the narrative. Most areas cannot be finished on the first visit since they require story progression abilities.
God of War Althoff Rig collectibles
- Legendary Chests: 1
- Lore: 2
- Odin’s Ravens: 1
- Mining Rigs: 1
#1 – Odin’s Raven: After arriving by boat to God of War Althoff Rig, ascend the golden chain and immediately turn left to see this raven.
#2 – Lore (Rune Read – The Squasher): After crashing through the dirt, it was discovered at the bottom of the area. Turn right from the Raven and press Circle to use your blades to pull down an elevator. Then, using the wheel on the right, lower a grappling point to one level above the ground (not to the very bottom). This allows you to step onto the lowered platform and swing over.
Then, using your blades L2+R2, blow up the red barrel, climb up to the end of the level, unlock the gate upstairs, drop down, and blow up another red barrel, then climb up in the rear left corner (the white climbing path signs on the wood show the way). After going up, use Circle to crash through the floor, bringing you downstairs. Check the left side of the wall for blue lettering just after bursting through the floor; that’s the lore.
#3 – Mining Rig (Althjof’s Rig): Located at the very top of the region. According to the legend, use your chains to raise the center platform back up. Return to the beginning of the region where you spun the wheel. To increase the grappling point by one floor, press L-down on the wheel (just one floor below the very top). Then, on the route to the lore, climb up the left side, where you unlocked the gate.
If you put the grappling hook appropriately with the rotating wheel, you may jump over to the center platform and swing over to the opposite side. Climb up after landing on the opposite side, and the rig will be in front of you. To engage with it, you must first clear away the opponents.
#4 – Lore (Scroll – Passion): Turn around and gaze left from the mining rig. L2+Square allows you to shoot green arrows at the vases. Then, behind the vases, you may climb around the wall (there are white icons on the wall to indicate the climbing path). Jump to the golden chain, slide down the chain, then use the wheel to lift the grappling point to the very top. Climb back up the same golden chain, and now you may use the grappling hook to jump over the wall, pressing Circle in midair to crash through it. The lore scroll is lying on the floor.
#5 – Legendary Chest (Njörd’s Tempest – Light Runic Attack): Follow the path on the left from the last lore scroll to discover the legendary chest.
God of War Althoff Rig puzzle solution
To begin, there is a wheel crank that rotates a grappling point up and down. You want it to be one space above its lowest point. Approach it and use your blades to drag the elevator down, allowing you to cross and reach the grappling point. Swing over and open the chest there, then crush the barrel opposite with your swords. This will cause it to explode and break the barrier that is in your way.
Go through the next sector and grapple up to the top, kicking the railing down for a shortcut back to the wheel crank. But don’t walk down just yet; instead, unlock the adjoining gate and descend into the new section, burning a barrel with your blades to create another passage back to the crank. Now, using the crank, lower the grapple point and return to the area you just cleared with the barrel. There’s a climbing path there that leads to a ledge from which you may slam down by hitting Circle when the prompt arises. You’ll come across several foes, so take care of them.
You may pick up the lore and unlock the chest down there once they’re reduced to dust. There is also a grappling point nearby that will transport you to another chest if you lower it appropriately with the crank. Once you’ve obtained the treasure, return to the opposite side and restart the elevator. Back to the crank, this time put it one space below its highest position, allowing you to climb up and grapple across to the next level you require. While you’re there, kick the chain down to establish a shortcut back up.
Follow the road that allows you to climb up to the furnace you’ve been looking for, but beware of the monsters you’ll find there. There is one more chest to obtain before continuing. Return to the crank and set the grapple point to its highest position using your new shortcut. Climb back up and utilize the grapple to acquire the Leviathan Axe’s Njord’s Tempest Runic attack.
