God of War guide: Horns of Veithurgard artifact locations (Veithurgard)

The locations of all Veithurgard artifacts

SIE Santa Monica Studio/Sony Interactive Entertainment via Polygon
Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.

In this God of War guide, we’ll show you how to find every Horns of Veithurgard artifact.

Finding artifacts in God of War isn’t just about being a completionist. Each artifact you pick up earns you some XP (with a bonus when you complete a set). And you can sell artifacts for good money when you visit a Brok or Sindri franchise location.

Horns of Veithurgard artifact locations

While exploring the Lake of Nine, you’ll find a beach at Stone Falls. There you can pick up the “Hammer Fall” Favor and open the gates to the hidden region of Veithurgard. Once you get to Veithurgard and start exploring, you’ll be able to pick up all five artifacts.

  1. When you land on the beach at Veithurgard, the first artifact is at the end of the dock on your left.
  2. To the right of the beach, there’s a chain that will open a gate around the corner to the left of the chain. Go through the gate and climb up to the top of the cliff, and then start making your way back down to the beach. On the first drop from the top of the cliff, there are some planks to smash. You’ll find the second artifact in the area you reveal after smashing the plants.
  3. As you’re making your way around the area outside of the fortress, you’ll find three shrines to free the dragon Otr. On your way from the second shrine to the third, you’ll blow up some rocks with a fire pot right in front of the doors to the fortress. The third artifact is behind those rocks.
  4. As you return to the altar to free Otr, the fourth artifact will be next to a corpse behind some crates on your left. Look for the little waterfall to the left of the altar.
  5. The fifth artifact is inside the dwarven fortress. You’ll have to drain some water out of a channel. The final artifact is at the bottom of that channel.
