First you will need to find the entrance to The Below. Head to the marked location on the map and find the cave entrance. Go down, cross the gap and destroy the glowing tendril orbs. As you jump, enemies will spawn – defeat them and throw your ax at the purple crystal to destroy the other tendril orbs.

Keep moving forward and jump down, defeating any enemies that will appear. Grab the chest and push forward into the large chamber. More enemies will appear when you enter the room, defeat them, then climb the wall at the back of the room. Turn to your right and throw your ax to smash the tendril orbs to reveal a chest. Grab the chest then go back up.

Once at the top, climb the next wall then climb again on the wall to your left. Take the zipline through the gap and drop down to grab the chest. Go up and take the path on the right, clinging to the chasm. Look right and down to locate the Nornir Chest.

 

Go to the platform under the wooden door and bounce your ax off the purple crystal to destroy the glowing tendril orbs. Hang onto the newly opened path and open the wooden door you were standing in front of a few moments ago. Drag the chain into the chamber below. Enemies will appear that you must defeat.

Crawl through the low tunnel and drop down the platform to the right of the gold ore blocking your path. Throw your ax at the bomb to explode the gold ore. Go up and continue, but stop just after the barrier. Turn around and throw your ax at the bomb next to the gold ore below. Then, throw your ax at the newly revealed crystal to destroy the glowing orb tendril. Go back down and grab the chest.

Keep moving forward and you’ll find yourself in a large chamber. Look between the glowing tendrils and throw your ax to spin the hanging pendulum. This will reveal a purple crystal. Line up your ax like the image below, destroying the first tendril orb on the left and bouncing off the crystals.

Jump over the hole and turn left. Throw your ax at the bomb to explode the gold ore. Jump back and move forward on the new path. Throw your ax at the purple crystal to destroy the tendril orbs. Climb up, grab the chest, and bounce your ax off the pendulum crystal again to reveal the way forward.

Drop down and move forward, jumping over gaps and defeating enemies in your path. You’ll find a Nightmare spawner, and behind it, a wall you can climb. Climb the path to find the creature Kratos and Atreus are looking for in Secrets of Favor of the Sands in God of War Ragnarök.
