What Are Odin’s Ravens In God Of War Ragnarok?

In God of War Ragnarok, you need to find 48 of Odin’s Ravens. You will need these ravens to unlock 6 chests in the Niflheim Realm. Each chest has a specific number of ravens that you must hit to unlock them.

The chests feature several rewards. Most of these ravens can be acquired throughout your regular adventures in the game. However, some ravens require you to unlock a special tool after completing the Forging Destiny quest.

Luckily, the ravens can be easily spotted as they have a bright green color and can be differentiated from other birds in the game.

Svartalfheim God Of War Ragnarok Raven Locations

Svartalfheim has by far the most ravens that you can find – 13, to be exact. The ravens can mostly be found in the Realm. Unfortunately, you’ll need to get a special tool to access some of them.

Aurvangar Wetlands

The raven in Aurvangar Wetlands is right outside the Mystic Gate.

Aurvangar’s raven is the easiest one to acquire. All you need to do is travel to the Aurvangar Wetlands and find the Mystic Gate. Step out of the gate and look up and left. You can see a small monolithic structure that will have a raven on top of it.

Althjof’s Rig

In Althjof’s Rig, you can easily find another one of Odin’s ravens. After Kratos climbs up the rig using a golden chain, you will see a barrel that is facing him. Go near that barrel and you will find the raven.

Alberich Island

There are 2 ravens to find on Alberich Island. But to find these, you must first finish the main quest “Forging Destiny”. After you complete the quest, you will get a new device that you can use to unlock this special raven.

The raven will be found on the beach on Albrich Island. At the beach, locate the Wind Vent that you can find on the right wall. Utilize your new device to climb the wall and get to the top.

Once at the top, you’ll need to go to the wooden ramp at the right of the area. Walk the ramp and go to the top of the elevator. On the left, you will find some Soundstone. Obliterate this Soundstone with your Sonic Arrows.

After destroying the Soundstone, you can walk forward and find the raven. You should hit it when it flies to the left as you have the best chance of hitting it this way.

The second raven in Alberich land also requires you to acquire the special device. After acquiring his device, go to the wooden ramp where you found the first raven.

Near the bottom of this area, you should find the elevator. There will be a stone with Wind Fissure. You should now aim your Draupnir Spear at the stone and hit it. If you haven’t unlocked the Draupnir Spear yet, head on over to our Draupnir Spear guide to find out how to unlock it.

This will obliterate the stone, releasing the hot water from the geyser. This will also eventually raise the elevator. Go to the elevator and grapple your way to the large wooden platform in the water. There, you will also find another grapple point. Use it to swing up to the island.

Here, climb the ledge and locate a small hole in the stone. You will be able to see the raven peeping from the hole.

Radsvinn’s Rig

The raven can be found on top of the crane.

You can also find another raven in Radsvinn’s Rig. The raven is actually found below the rig. Before you climb up the rig, aim your camera from the ground up and to the left. Look for the large towering crane.

Locate the hook of the crane and you’ll find Odin’s raven here. Hit it and you’ll progress further into the quest.

Lyngbakr Island

Lyngbakr Island also has a raven to be found. The raven can be found even while completing the “The Weight of Chains” favor. You’ll first need to release one of the fins to get to the raven.

Then, you can access the boat. Use the boat to travel to the other side of the water. There, you will find a gate that will open right up into the first area that you just came from.

Use your Fire Bomb to clear a pile of rubble in the area. Once done, jump to the opposite side and find the red chest. Next, crawl down into the little crawlspace at the very right of this chest.

Once you get through the crawlspace, take a sharp left turn and you can see the raven. Luckily, the raven is on the ground hopping about the place. You can easily hit it with your axe, though you’ll need to aim fast.

The Watchtower

The Watchtower God of War Ragnarok raven location.
Here, you can find the raven circling above the dwarf’s shop.

If you know where the dwarf’s shop is in the Watchtower, then you can easily acquire the raven here. First, you’ll need to go to where you first fought the Hateful. If you can’t get past the Hateful, then check out our The Hateful guide. Then, go to the right of this place and look for the dwarf’s shop.

Finally, you’ll find the raven circling over the shop. Hit with your axe and you’ll have acquired that raven.

Jarnsmida Pitmines

Jarnsmida Pitmines also includes a raven you can find. You can find the raven right when you’re traveling with Atreus in the cart. Specifically, the raven is accessible from when you crash the cart.

You’ll need to slide down the golden chain. This will lead you to a chest. You will also see some branches that will appear to be covered in some red mushrooms. There, when you go across the water, you can see the Raven flying above the water.

Unfortunately, you cannot access the building easily. You’ll need to use Sonic Arrows to uncover a crawlspace. Walk through this crawlspace to get to the top of the building. Here, you can find the raven sitting on the top.

The Applecore

To access the raven hiding in Appecore, you’ll need to complete the water wheels puzzle. First, find the crawlspace in the Applecore that will be situated next to a red chest.

Go back to the door that you came through to get to this room. Just before the door, you can find the water wheels puzzle. You’ll be needing Sonic Arrows to complete this puzzle.

Look to the left of the door. You can see a raven sitting there atop the rafters. It should be right next to the zipline.

For players who have already completed the puzzle, you’ll need to get to the location through the bottom side of Applecore.

Go to the walkway made of wood and look up at the face of the dwarf carved into the side of the mountain. You will see the raven circling the general area. Hit it with your axe quickly.

To find the second raven, you’ll need to first go back to Svartalfheim. Unfortunately, you can’t get this raven during the actual story that takes place in the Forge.

Alberich Hollow

The last raven you can find in Svartalheim is in Alberich Hollow. For this, you will also need the special device that you get from the Forging Destiny mission.

After you find the Legendary Chest in the hollow, you can easily find the raven. Look for an enormous statue of a dwarf and find the tunnel located at the left of the statue.

You will eventually find a lava rock dispenser. You can now use this device to destroy a wall of gold rocks that will be right up ahead. Once you get past the wall, you will see a tree to the immediate left. Here, you can finally find the last raven in Svartalheim.

Alfheim God Of War Ragnarok Raven Locations

But you cannot access the raven without throwing your axe at a Purple Twilight stone that’s outside the gate. The axe will ricochet from the gate and attack the raven.

The second location where you can find the raven in the Temple of Light is before you get to the Nornir Chest. Right before you encounter the Nornir Chest in the Temple of Light, you will see a room.

Enter the room and you’ll find the raven opposite the staircase, sitting right on top of a flat platform.

Next, go to the Burrows and travel to the west side of this place. Find the statue of Freyr and you can see a second raven circling in front of it.

After that, you’ll need to go back to the location where you first find and fight the Frost Phantom. You can find the raven just above the megalith there. However, if you want to actually hit the raven, you’ll need to aim your shot above the structure.

Lastly, you can find the final raven in the Elven Library in the Forbidden Sands. You’ll need to travel to the external door of the library and obliterate the wreckage in front of it.

This will reveal a small crawlspace underneath the library. Enter the crawlspace and go to the left of the space. You’ll find the last raven here.

Vanaheim God Of War Ragnarok Raven Locations

You can find a total of 6 ravens in Vanaheim. Luckily, you can find most of these normally when progressing through the story.

River Delta

The Pilgrim's Landing God of War Ragnarok raven location.

Once you’ve completed the puzzle, you can enter the Pilgrim’s Landing Area. Here, you will find a Legendary Chest. The chest is not important here. Instead, look to the left of the chest and you can find one of Odin’s ravens.

You will find the second raven right on top of the river, seated atop a massive tree root. However, hitting the raven isn’t so easy. You’ll need to walk up the Veiled Passage and use the golden chain to travel down.

If you look down from the lore marker, you can easily see the raven and hit it. In this way, you can get both of the ravens in the River Delta.

The Abandoned Village

In Vanaheim, you can find a raven in the Abandoned Village. To access the raven, you’ll need to first enter the main building. There, you’ll need to swing to the top level and enter through a cracked wall.

Goddess Falls

The last raven you can find in Vanaheim is in Goddess Falls. To find this raven, you’ll need to climb up on the ledge near the triple waterfall. This is the same waterfall where you previously docked your ship.

The Oarsman

If you end up progressing through the game, don’t worry. You can always come back and go through the same path and find the campsite again. To do this, you’ll need to traverse through the wall crack in the cliff.

Helgrind

The first raven that you can find is in Helgrind. You must walk through the Hel’s Perch Mystic Gateway. Then, travel to the Helgrind area. You must use your spear to get to the next location.

However, before you do so, you should look above. Chances are, you will be able to find the raven hovering above you. Hit it to acquire it.

Hel’s Perch Staircases

The next raven that you can find in Helheim is above the Lore Marker near two staircases. You can get this raven when you are completing the mission “The Reunion”.

Next, head right and you will see a small cavern. You will be attacked by Wisps as soon as you enter the cavern. After you get through the Wisps, you should find the room, go to the right side of it, and peer through the window. You can see the raven there.

Surtr’s Forge

Finally, the last raven to be found in Muspelheim is in Surtr’s Forge. To acquire the raven, you need to climb up to the elevated patch of land. This is where you will meet the ashen man. On top of this platform look North and you will see the raven on the archway.

Final Thoughts

Finding all 48 of Odin’s Ravens is a tedious task. Luckily, if you have a keen eye, you will hit these ravens right on your first time accessing the various areas. However, you can always come back and capture the ravens that you missed.

For some of these ravens, however, you can only get them by completing the Forging Destiny quest. Hence, you cannot get them during your regular journey through some areas.

And that’s it for all the God of War Ragnarok raven locations. Ready to play the game for yourself? Head on over to the PlayStation Store to download it now.
