God of War Ragnarok: All Kratos' shields God of War Ragnarok guide

Last update: Thursday, November 24, 2022

One of the most important pieces of gear Kratos makes use of in God of War Ragnarok is a shield - you can block and parry attacks or bash enemies with it. This page of the guide lists all unlockable shields. You'll learn how to acquire the Guardian Shield, Onslaught Shield, Dauntless Shield, Shatter Star Shield and the Stone Wall Shield, as well as their unique traits.

Collecting all the described shields awards you with a silver Phalanx trophy.

Guardian Shield

Unique trait - Shield Check: You can break the enemy's guard (2x L1), as well as parry attacks and counter (L1 at the last possible moment before you're hit, then R1 or R2) - God of War Ragnarok: All Kratos shields - Character development - God of War Ragnarok Guide

How to unlock: This is the shield you start the game with, though unfortunately it'll break during the first boss battle against Thor. This makes it unusable for a while, until you reach The Word of Fate main quest.

We've described this in more detail on the How to repair the broken shield? page in the FAQ section.

Stone Wall Shield

We've described how to reach this chest in more detail on The Abandoned Village page in the Secrets and collectibles chapter.

How to unlock: There are two ways to get this shield. The first is to reach the legendary chest in Helheim - we've pictured it above. You can open it soon after winning the first boss fight against Garm. This is only possible in the Reunion main quest, during your second visit to Helheim (the chest isn't counted to the list of the realm's collectibles).

If you've missed the chest, you can buy the shield at any shop for 7,500 hacksilver after completing the quest (the quest area is inaccessible later on).
