To upgrade your gear and items, you need to collect resources by exploring the 9 realms in God of War: Ragnarok. These collectibles, like the Tempered Remnants, will help you level up your equipment which helps in many aspects of the game.
Use Tempered Remnants to upgrade Kratos Armor. Upgrading Armor will help you improve defense against Strong Bosses. If you are curious to know how and where to get them, don’t stress about it because you are at the right place.
- To collect Tempered Remnants, you need to complete all the story missions first.
- Collection of the crafting resources requires you to visit 10 Asgard camps and fight the Einherjars protecting it.
- Tempered Remnants are found by opening the Red Glowing Chests found inside the camps.
How To Collect Tempered Remnants
Finish all the story missions to collect these Crafting Resources. After reaching the endgame Beyond Ragnarok, you will unlock the Favor called Last Remnants of the Asgard in which you be collecting Tempered Remnants.
While progressing through the Last Remnants of the Asgard Favor, you will be included in some minor Boss fights. After defeating them, you will be given access to Red Glowing Chests. When opened, you will be rewarded with Crafting Materials, one of which is the Tempered Remnant.
Note here that these resources are limited and distributed randomly among the Red Chests so all the Chests might not hold the Tempered Remnants. The other two resources that these chests might contain are Fortified Remnants and Hardened Remnants.
Always save your game after defeating the enemies and before opening the chests to have a better chance of getting Remnants out of the chests.
Using The Tempered Remnants
Crafting Resources like Tempered Remnants are used to upgrade your armor. Better armor means better defense statistics, so you don’t take a lot of damage in a fight. Your armor can reach a maximum upgrade level of 9 so make sure you get all of the collectible resources.
Some known armors that you can upgrade using Tempered Remnants Are Bracers of Undying Pyres, Berserker Gauntlets, Spiritual Wraps, and many more.
Tempered Remnant Locations
There are a total of 10 Locations where the Tempered Remnants might be found. These locations are marked on your map after you have started the Last Remnants of the Asgard Favor. Visit the following locations to open Red Chests to get Tempered Remnants for your armor upgrades.
- Freyr’s Camp in Vanaheim.
- Eastern Barri Woods in Vanaheim
- Aurvangar Wetlands in Svartalfheim.
- Jarnsmida Pitmines in Svartalfheim.
- Alberich Hollow in Svartalfheim.
- Lake of Nine in Midgard.
- Well of Urd in Midgard.
- Burning Cliffs in Muspelheim.
- The Barrens in Alfheim.
- The Strond in Alfheim.
Get to these locations to collect the Tempered Remnants by fighting minor bosses and other Einherjars.
Freyr’s Camp has multiple entrances that you can use to enter it. When you reach the entry point of the Mystic Gateway, take the boat from the riverside and start moving North.
To indicate that you are on the right path, there will be a cave-like entrance to your left, which is the path to Freyr’s camp. At that point, look to your right and move some steps forward. You will see the chest will be directly in front of you.
When you get close to it, enemies will start to appear behind you. Defeat them and then grab the Tempered Remnants from the Chest. The Einherjars wear special armor that needs to be broken first. Make use of the Rage Ability to deal high damage.
Get to the chest after your fight ends and collect the Tempered Remnants inside.
Eastern Barri Woods
We will continue from the same location where we opened the Red Chest outside Freyr’s Camp. The cave-looking entrance that you saw on your left, use it to enter the Freyr’s camp. Eastern Barri Woods is at the northeast of the camp as shown on the map.
Leave the camp by taking the Northeast bridge. The Chest is placed toward the East. Jump down from the high point to see it on your left.
You will fight two Einherjars that are assisted by a Wyvern at this camp. The Wyvern can be defeated by blocking the attacks with your shield and timing your attacks right after it attacks to give high damage. Use Rage after your red bar is filled by pressing R3+L3 when Wyvern is weak to defeat it faster than usual.
Open the chest after winning the fight to get rewarded by the Tempered Remnants.

Red Chest location is toward the North of Aurvangar Wetlands as marked on the map.
This area is important because you can also open the Nornir Chest placed around our Red Chest of interest. Move to it by taking a short boat journey. Go through the shrunk spot by ducking to reach the hidden location.
Park the boat on the river’s edge. At this point, you must have reached the chest location, but you need to defeat a couple of enemies first to open it. This should be an easy fight that you can win by using normal attacking moves by Kratos.
After winning the fight, the Red Chest will be in the middle. Head over to its position to get Tempered Remnants for your armor.
How To Reach The Camp
After making your way inside Jarnsmida Pitmines, you will have to make your way North to reach the Tempered Remnants.
Here’s the path for you to follow.
Jump across the broken wooden bridge to the West.
Drop down from the left edge where you see an opening. Reach the far end where you see a 3-way valve like this.
Shoot your spear at this angle so you can swing by it to reach the other end by dropping down 1 more time.
Make your way Northeast when you see the hanging rope. Use your Draupnir Spear and wound the rope on its tail. Shoot the spear to the other end of the river to create a zip line. Use the zip line to go to the far end.
You have successfully reached the Mystic Gateway of Jarnsmida Pitmines. Reach the chest location by climbing up the chain to the left of the removed blockage. You will face multiple Einherjars that include a brute, some archers, and other defenders.
Fighting Einherjars At The Camp
Make them suffer by using multiple-attack combos. Make sure you block their attacks with your shield as they can highly drain your health. The Einherjars can teleport away when you attack them, so your attacks are missed. So, keep that in mind during your fight.
The archers are far away so use your Draupnir spears to aim at them then detonate the spear to deal damage and kill them. After winning a slightly lengthy battle, loot the Red Chest to get your reward.
The following chest is located between Alberich Hollow and Dragon Beach as the map shows.
You can reach it by traveling by boat as the area is connected by a river. Your best bet is to go to the Bay of Bounty where you can also upgrade your armor and other items if you want to. Take the boat by the shore.
Move the boat directly to the South and keep going. Cross the doorway and head East now.
Keep going East till you reach the Asgard camp. You will go head-to-head with the Einherjar Captain who wears strong armor and has a long axe.
Defeat him along with some other Einherjarians. Open the Red Chest glowing at the right of this camp. Loot the Remnants and move to the next location.
Lake Of Nine
The Red Chest is located on the high ground at the Raider Stronghold as the map displays.
You can ascend towards the Red Chest by taking the lift. To reach the lift, hop on the sled and travel across the frozen lake. There will be a switch at the bottom of the lift resembling a triangle. Rotate it once to bring the carrier down.
Get on the lift and rotate the lever on it to make it go up. As it reaches the highest point, the frozen camp will be toward the West which further leads to Tyr’s Temple. The Asgardians will be protecting their camp along with a beast.
Fight them using combos of Draupnir spear and the axe to defeat them. Move more West, and on your right, you will see the Chest containing Tempered Remnants. Loot it to get your reward.
Since you have made it this far, also find out who are the voice actors in GOW: Ragnarok.
Well Of Urd
Standing at the remains of Asgard on the Lake of Nine, the next closest location for you is at your Northwest. The Red Chest is exactly located on the cliff between the Well of Urd and the Shores of Nine.
To reach there, travel on the sled moved by a couple of wolves. You can start your journey by going towards the mystic gateway at the Lake of Nine. From there, hop on the sled and continue Northwest till the wolves can’t go further anymore.
Continue the rest of your journey on foot. Climb the ledge that comes before entering the Well of Urd. The chest will be behind the big cliff. To get to the chest, you will have to fight 3 Einherjars and a beast.
Loot your 7th Chest and get the Tempered Remnants. This will be the last one in Midgard.
Muspelheim only has a single Asgard camp holding the crafting resources. The chest is placed at the midpoint of Molten Lowlands and Surtr’s Forge. The Chest is hidden behind the big wall that is to the left of Burning Cliffs.
After Reaching the camp by jumping over a small wall, you will face 3 Einherjars. Freya will assist you in killing them. The best way to let them off you is to make them charge at you first then use your rage ability with runic attacks of the Leviathan axe to deal very high damage.
Open the chest to get your reward and get one step closer to ending the Favor.
The last two Chests we will loot are in Alfheim. The Barrens is a large plain area so make use of the sled to travel faster to reach faraway areas. The Barrens is the same area where you must have completed the Secret of the Sands Favor earlier in the game.
To get to the hidden area, hop on the sled and reach the red spot on the map. Jump over the thick wall with a white mark engraved in it to get to the other side.
You might need to roam around the location to find that wall. Two Einherjar Captains, Stinnr and Sterkr, are protecting the camp.
How To Defeat Stinnr And Sterkr
To fight these mini bosses, you will need a good defense. Make sure you are equipped with a highly upgraded shield before you fight them. Stinnr and Sterkr each have one heavy hammer and axe respectively that they will use in the battle.
Their attacking strategies involve heavy hits with their weapons. They also struck their axe into the ground and a purple laser chases you in a straight line giving you damage. Keep in mind to bring up your shield against them and attack right after they put their weapon down.
If they are standing at some distance from you, they can teleport close to you and hit you in the face or even from your back. Always keep an eye out for it and try to get out of their way when this happens.
After defeating them both in an intense fight, collect the Tempered Remnants by opening the Red Chest on the other end of the camp.
Making Your Way Toward The Camp
Move South from The Barrens and cross The Canyons to finally reach The Strond as shown on the map.
Don’t forget to travel on the sled as the journey is long and will take you a while on foot.
When on your way to The Strond from The Barrens on the sled, break the wooden objects in the open to get some extra resources. After reaching this point, continue the remaining journey on foot as the wolves can’t go further down.
Continue South to reach the mystic gateway at The Strond. You might face some enemies along the way. When you are at the Mystic Gateway, look to your left where you will see a marked area. Climb up and reach the fire bowl.
Slip through the small gap in the wall and move further Southwest. Climb up 2 times and then descend and continue West. Jump to the other side of the broken bridge to enter the dark tunnel with 2 pink crystals on its other end.
Almost At The Asgard Camp
Tyr will be standing on the edge of the cliff at the other end of the tunnel. Kratos and Freya will have a short conversation with him. After the chat ends, climb up on the wall to reach the Asgard camp.
Two Einherjar Brutes will be waiting for you inside the camp. Break their special armor first by hitting heavy hits to the upper body then take them down using your special abilities. After you are done, collect the final Tempered Remnants to end the Favor “Last Remnants of the Asgard”
When you will be opening the Red Chest, it will show that you collected all 10 crafting materials and therefore, completed the Favor.
Tempered Remnant is a type of Crafting Resource that is used to upgrade many armors to their maximum level of 9. These can only be collected when you are Beyond Ragnarok and have started the Last Remnants of the Asgard Favor.
You collect the resource by visiting 10 Asgard Camps in the 9 realms of the game. Each camp has a red chest placed somewhere that contains the armor pieces to be collected. After collecting, Kratos and Freya will receive 10000 XP and 2500 XP respectively.
