Unlocking God Of War Ragnarok Secret Ending
Before we get into what the God of War Ragnarok secret ending is, we’ll first look at how to unlock it.
The secret ending can only be unlocked after completing the mission“The Realms at War”. This is the last mission that you must complete in the game. After completing the mission, walk over to any store.
Once in the store, talk with Lunda. You will have to complete a favor called “A Viking Funeral”. To complete the funeral, you’ll need to travel over to Nidavellir.
In Nidavellir, go up to Raeb’s Tavern and speak with Lunda, Raeb, and Durlin. They will eventually inform you about Brok’s funeral. They are planning on paying their respects to Brok by taking him to Sved Sands. Additionally, you get the option to pay your respects right there and then.
After that, you’ll need to go back to the place where you fled the mines and rescued Tyr. When you go to the Mystic Gateway, you can locate the special contraption that lets you travel across the sealine.
As soon as you get across the coast, you can finally move on to the secret ending.
God Of War Ragnarok Secret Ending Explained
So what’s the secret ending of God of War Ragnarok? Well, as you may have guessed from the “A Viking Funeral” favor, it’s Brok’s funeral. After traveling across the shoreline, you can finally hold Brok’s funeral.
All of Brok’s dwarf friends will be there to attend the funeral as well as Kratos. In the beginning, you will notice a very important character that’s missing – Sindri. However, after some progress through the cutscene, Sindri will eventually make an entrance.
You will notice that Sindri is still remorseful over the demise of his beloved brother and will be angry at Kratos.
Eventually, Kratos and Sindri will bid farewell to Brok’s body and send it off to sea. Along with that, Freya will launch a fire arrow that will land on his body and set it on fire.
Sindri will leave, still resentful about his brother’s demise. After this, you will see the full credits roll, which are a bit more detailed than the ones you see after the first ending ends. You’ll also be able to hear the God of War Ragnarok ending theme titled “Blood on the Snow”.
God Of War Ragnarok: Other Game Endings
Besides the secret ending, you can also unlock other game quests after the game ends. These aren’t exactly endings, just other things you can do post-ending. Here are a few important post-game quests to complete:
Visiting Sindri’s House: Once you complete the second ending, pay a visit to Sindri. There, converse with Ratatoskr who will lend you a bag full of Yggdrasil seeds. These seeds are key for opening up fast travel to every realm in the game. Additionally, they will activate all the Mystical Gateways that you skipped over (if any). Moreover, if you go through the side gate, you can see all of your discovered Stags.
