Guide by Hirun Cryer, Tom Orry, .

The Flight of Fafnir in God of War sees Kratos and Atreus venturing into the far flung reaches of Midgard, in order to find and free the Dragon Fafnir. In this God of War Fafnir Dragon guide, we’ll be walking you through how to find and free Fafnir, and the various rare items you can gain as a reward for the undertaking.

If you instead need anything else to do with God of War, including how to get to grips with the combat system featuring the Leviathan Axe, or how to battle your way through every challenging boss in the main story, make sure to head over to our God of War guides walkthrough hub.

God of War Flight of Fafnir Guide

Finding Fafnir is no easy task in God of War, as you’ll need to venture into a fairly hidden region in order to find the Dragon. Sail to the left of the Alfheim tower on the Lake of Nine, and Kratos and Atreus will be able to dock their boat at a shore. Atreus can now use his shock arrows to bring down the rubble straight ahead of you, letting the pair scale the cliff.

Once you’ve reached the top of the cliff, head along the path on the left, and where Kratos can open some giant wooden doors. You’re now in domain of Fafnir, where the Flight of Fafnir quest will kick off.

Drop down to the ledges just to your left, and then follow the path around to the left, where you’ll find a Draugr praying at a shrine. You need to kill all the Draugr in the area, and then destroy the shrine itself with the Leviathan Axe, bringing you one step closer to freeing Fafnir.

Come out of the shadowy area that the shrine was in, and turn left, to see another shrine at the end of the pathway. You’ll have to defeat all the Draugr in front Kratos, as well as dodging the lightning strikes from Fafnir himself, until you can safely make it to the shrine and destroy it.

You’ll now need to head to the bottom right corner of the arena, away from Fafnir, where you’ll find a ledge that Kratos and Atreus can jump to. Once you’ve scaled this ledge, you’ll find yourself facing off against several weaker Draugr, as well as one powerful Draugr with a huge two handed sword.

Make sure to use Atreus’ shock arrows to tear the armor off the huge Draugr, and you can take him out without too much difficulty. Now hack away at the final shrine until it’s gone, and you can make your way back to a freed Fafnir.

Interact with the runic pedestal in front of the Dragon, and you’ll free Fafnir, bringing an end to the Flight of Fafnir quest. You’ll be rewarded with over 800 XP, and the elusive Dragon Tear item for completing the tricky undertaking.

We might be all done with our guide on how to free Fafnir in God of War, but continue ahead to our God of War best armor guide, or our complete God of War Valkyrie locations guide for more helpful info.

    Thanks for the help with the walk through, I only used it when I was in a pinch. Since this is my first time playing the GOW franchise, I hope get everything in the game.

    When fighting Matturg Helson aka Bridge Keeper
    The last part where is says
    (The final thing you need to be wary of when taking on the Bridge Keeper is the minions that he can summon onto the battlefield, all of which you’ve previously fought on your journey through Helheim so far. We’d recommend taking these minions out as soon as possible, as they can be a nuisance if you instead turn your back on them and focus purely on the Bridge Keeper instead.)

    Does not work on (Give Me God Of War) he well continue to summon as soon as you kill the minions maybe on a lower difficulty you can kill the them fast enough but not on Give me god of war. When he summon them ignore them and run to him and light attack him to get him to start teleporting his attack well hit the minions and kill them in one or two hits and when his last attack aim and press R2 to do heavy attack two or three time then doge back but keep a eye on themEdited April 2018 by Daraix

    Surprise, surprise, the valkyries are mostly in Chambers of Odin! Maybe you could actually SHOW us where they are instead of saying vague areas as though that'll help any?

    @davidbenavent31 The game marks every Valkyrie location on your map after you complete the main story.
