The God of War franchise is well known for its story, gore, and the insane amount of weapons at your disposal (sans God of War 2018). Among the choices in God of War: Ragnarök is the Draupnir Spear. The Draupnir Spear is a weapon that you can throw at enemies and obstacles infinitely, punishing them with an near-endless amount of strikes. Here’s how you can get it.
How to obtain the Draupnir Spear in God Of War Ragnarok
The Draupnir Spear is unlocked during the main story mission Forging Destiny, where you travel to Svartalfheim with Brok and meet the Lady of the Forge. She will give you the spear after you provide with her the materials she requires.
The Draupnir Spear is a powerful spear that can be thrown and a new spear appears in your hand. The spears that were thrown however will stay on the target (whether they are alive or inanimate objects) and will explode whenever you activate it. Just like the Leviathan Axe and the Blades of Chaos, the Draupnir Spear can be upgraded and has its own tech-tree for you to obtain different attack types that you’ll find useful in the heat of battle, and the spear can also be used to traverse hidden locations in the game.
What is the Draupnir?
The Draupnir in Norse mythology is a special ring that was forged by Brok and Sindri as a gift for Odin the all-father together with Mjölnir. The ring has the ability to multiply endlessly and this intrigued the all-father very much.
In the game God of War: Ragnarök, the history of the Draupnir Ring is hinted to be the same as the mythology, but Brok and Sindri stole it from Odin and kept it for themselves. The ring was then repurposed by the two dwarves and turned into a spear for Kratos to use in order to kill Heimdall.
