God of War Treasure Map - Hunter's Kingdom
How to find it -On the southeastern part of the Lake of Nine is a boat dock called the Lookout Tower. Hoist your boat and cruise along the beach, clearing out the waiting nightmares, then have Atreus pick up the glittering scroll from the sand.
How to solve it -The clue mentions an offering for those who suffered in the Dwarf King's quest for glory, so you know it has something to do with that royal pain. The Hunter Kingdom's treasure is indeed in Veithurgard, but beware of this dragon. Head into the Veithurgard area on the far left, near the large door locked by spinning rune locks. Take out any enemies that make you big, then go to the left side of the door, right next to the lore marker. There is a small cairn that hides the treasure.
God of War Treasure Map – The Boat Captain's Key
Here's how to find it- East of the Lake of Nine is an area called Stone Falls, you will recognize it when you see the large waterfall that flows over the stone mountain. They like to be literal in God of War. The Boat Captain's Key Treasure Map is just lying there on the beach, right near where you pull the boat up.
how to solve it- As the map suggests, this is all about a captain who went down with his ship, which happens to be on Death Island. Located slightly southwest of Tyr's Temple, it is the largest island on the map. Climb to the top of the island and the treasure awaits you in the hull of the shipwreck.
God of War Treasure Map - Dead and Bloated
How to find it -In the gray rocky area just below the mountain are the Volunder Mines, accessible via the Raven's Cliffs. Grab Brok's Labour, work your way through the first chamber, kill the mythical beasts, open the door and follow the path to the right. There is a chain at the end that you need to go down where you will find the treasure map next to the red chest.
How to solve it -As the name and image suggest, this treasure is right next to the body of a giant. Go to the raven's cliffs and go to the cairn at the giant's stomach to get your treasure.
God of War Treasure Map - Don't Blink
Here's how to find it- Fafnir's Storage Room, to the far east of the map through the Forgotten Caverns, houses a ton of collectibles, including the Don't Blink Treasure Map, which lies next to a dead knight right next to the altar in Fafnir's Vaults.
how to solve it- When you reach the mountain you will know that there is a huge face on it, but thanks to that thick black smoke you won't be able to solve this treasure hunt until you get the Bifrost crystal. When you do, head up the mountain until you're just under the stone wall, then work your way down the path a bit until you find the cairn.
God of War Treasure Map - The Turtle's Tribute
Here's how to find it- One of the few treasure maps where the map and the solution are close is The Turtle's Tribute. You can find the map on the lower level of the Witch's Cave, just to the right as you come from the Witch's Cave itself. At the climbing block initially blocked by branches in the room on the right.
how to solve it- Go back to the witch's forest and you'll find the treasure just to the right of the giant tortoise's head.
God of War Treasure Map - Kneel before Thor
Here's how to find it- Head over to the Landsuther Mines southwest of Lake of Nine and go down the wooden planks to the lower levels. When you go all the way down, go down the track a bit and jump in the elevator on the left. At the top in a small gap you'll find a red chest and the Kneel Before Thor Treasure Map.
how to solve it- The treasure that lies at the feet of the god of gods can only be in one place - the base of the statue of Thor. Go there and it's right next to his right foot.
God of War Treasure Map - Creation Island
Here's how to find it- Go to Iron Cove on the west side of Lake of Nine and the treasure map is right on the beach in the small alcove on the top left of the beach.
how to solve it- The clue is in the name of this one, so head to Buri's Storeroom in the east of the map. It's in the very east of the island, on the opposite side of the main landing, and then nestles into the rocks to the right. Just watch out for the big baddies who want to kill you first.
God of War Treasure Map - The last place they would look
Here's how to find it- At the top of the lift inside the mountain, you'll see a path lined with explosive red crystals. Walk this way and in the little hut you will find the treasure map.
how to solve it- Go to Council of Valkyries north of Mason's Channel at Lake of Nine. Hold the large stone head with the waterfall for a mouth in front of you and then the treasure pile will line up with it just to the left of the Valkyrie Throne.
God of War Treasure Map - Isle of Light
Here's how to find it- Warp to the Stone Falls Mystic Gateway, then it's directly to the right of your boat.
how to solve it- Go to the Light Elves outpost in the north of the Lake of Nine, just south of the Ancient ruins and make your way to the top of the island. From here, go down the few chains in the north of the island and you will find a gate. Right on the edge of the ledge is the treasure here.
God of War Treasure Map - Njord's Oarsmen
Here's how to find it- Back at the Northi Fortress to the far north of the Lake of Nine is the Northri Fortress and you need to go to the huge boat at the end of the path where the battle took place. Then work your way to the small opening below. Here, next to a dead soldier, is the treasure map you are looking for.
how to solve it- Go to the Stone Falls east of the Lake of Nine. From the mystical gate, go up the side of the mountain, meander past the narrow ledge and climb up to the first ledge. Turn right here and go through the tunnel. At the end you emerge and the treasure is right in front of you.
God of War Treasure Map - Finder's Rewards
Here's how to find it- In the cave above the Forgotten Caverns beach, northwest of the Lake of Nine, is the Finder's Fee card, right next to the chest on the back.
how to solve it- Go to the Northri Fortress at the very north of the Lake of Nine and climb up the side of the platform between the two huge metal doors on the water by the boat dock. The treasure is on a small platform in the middle.
Treasure Map from God of War - The Historian
Here's how to find it- Go to the ruins of antiquity in the far north of the Lake of Nine. Dock your boat and - once you've defeated the Ancients - the Finder's Reward Treasure Map will be on the sand in the arena.
how to solve it- At the back of the open-air area of Fafnir's storage room is an opening that leads to a door guarded by two huge wooden rams. The Historian's Treasure is on the ground just below the left one, behind the fire.
