What are the colored insects for in God of War Ragnarök?

Throughout Kratos and Atreus’ travels through the Nine Realms, they’ll encounter all manner of creatures. From very small to very large, it seems like everything is used for something in God of War Ragnarök. So what about the insects that shine so brightly in such dark caves?

Do God of War Ragnarök bugs do anything?

The short answer here is absolutely nothing. Despite their conspicuous and shiny appearance, the only thing God of War Ragnarök bugs are good for is crashing. Armed with knowledge, you can do one of two things: rampage bugs for their insolence for not being collectible, or focus that homicidal collectible rage toward something useful, like Odin’s crows .


Just because bugs aren’t on the menu doesn’t mean there’s a lack of treasures, upgrades, and other collectibles. Much like God of War (2018), Ragnarök apparently has no shortage of things to collect, some of which are tied to trophies. Kratos and the boy can focus on collecting the following items:

  • Witch Chests
  • Knowledge Markers
  • Odin’s Ravens
  • Dew of Yggdrasil
  • Legendary Chests
  • Muspelheim Seeds
  • fine apples
  • Blood Mead Horns
