God of War Ragnarok adds a br&-new weapon to Kratos’ arsenal, though players will need to wait quite some time before getting the Draupnir spear.
The God of War series has featured some fantastic weapons over the years, which has in turn helped the combat of the games to remain fresh. The series’ 2018 installment centered around the iconic Blades of Chaos & a new weapon, the Leviathan Axe. God of War Ragnarok throws another weapon into the mix, though players will need to wait quite some time before getting their h&s on it.
Players will get the Draupnir spear during Chapter 10 of God of War Ragnarok as part of a questline that requires them to find a weapon capable of defeating an opponent who can read Kratos’ every move. That’s not the only use for the Draupnir spear, however, with players also able to use it to open Nornir Chests & gain access to new areas, including some in places that they have already visited.
How to Get the Draupnir Spear in God of War Ragnarok
After making their way through the Myrkr Tunnels, players will find themselves in The Forge. After solving a few puzzles that involve freezing geysers to move waterwheels, they’ll eventually Advance to the elevator that will take them to the Lady of The Forge. Unfortunately, however, the elevator is broken, so players will need to collect some nearby materials to help Brok fix it. After that, they’ll be introduced to the Lady & will finally get their h&s on the Draupnir Spear.
How to Use the Draupnir Spear in God of War Ragnarok
Players can switch to the Draupnir Spear by pressing Down on the D-pad. As with Kratos’ other two weapons, the spear can be used for light & heavy melee attacks. It’s a lot more like the Leviathan Axe than the Blades of Chaos though, as players will also be able to use the Draupnir spear as a projectile. In fact, thanks to Draupnir, they’ll be able to throw an infinite number of projectiles & can even detonate them by pressing the Triangle button.
As well as being able to open up certain Nornir Chests like the ones at The Forge & The Strond, players can also use the Draupnir spear to gain access to new areas. If ever they see a golden crack, throwing a Draupnir spear into it & then detonating the spear will destroy part of the environment & open up a new path. Similarly, if players should ever Advance across a spout of wind, throwing a spear directly inside it will allow them to climb on the spear to reach previously inaccessible places.
God of War Ragnarok is available now for PS4 & PS5.
