God of War Ragnarok Berserkers Locations Guide

In God of War Ragnarok there are a number of different types of activities for players to complete when not pursuing the main storyline. One of these activities is a Favor that tasks you with fighting hard enemies referred to as Berserkers. These Berserkers are hidden throughout the different realms and can be found and fought for special rewards. To help you learn more about these enemies here’s our complete God of War Ragnarok Berserkers guide.



IMPORTANT: The Berserker bosses do not become available in-game until you reach The Path mission called The Word of Fate. During this mission you must travel to visit the Norn Witches. While you travel to the witches you pass through King’s Grave where you encounter a gravestone. Here you pick up The Inert Hilt of Skofnung which allows you to interact with the Berserker Gravestones you find in the world.
