God of War Ragnarok: Trophy Guide

God of War Ragnarok

Cultured Vultures spoilers

One of the most satisfying things about playing through God of War Ragnarok is collecting all of the trophies on this PlayStation exclusive. There are 36 trophies to collect in total. Some range from finding all collectible items to defeating bosses. The easiest way to achieve all trophies is by completing the story first to check off those that naturally are achieved in this process. Nothing is missable as you can return to any area in God of War Ragnarok after the story is complete in order to tidy up the remaining trophies. Here’s our God of War Ragnarok trophy guide to help you get that Platinum.

The Bear and the Wolf – Collect all trophies

The Florist –  Collect one flower from each of the nine realms. This is awarded naturally for completing the favour: Nine Realms in Bloom.

The Curator – This is rewarded for finding all 38 artifacts and completing the Casualties of War favour in the Crater area of Vanaheim. These favours count as artifacts too.
