This page will show you the locations for all Treasure Maps and Buried Treasure in God of War Ragnarok. There are 10 caches of Buried Treasure to be found in total, but you won’t be able to find them unless you collect the associated Treasure Map first.
All Treasure Map and Buried Treasure Locations
There are a total of 10 Treasure Maps / Buried Treasure locations in God of War Ragnarok, and to access most of them you will need to have the Draupnir Spear, which is acquired during the Forging Destiny main quest. We recommend getting at least that far in the main story before you set your sights on obtaining all of the buried treasures listed in the table below. We’ve included a brief description of the locations and realms involved for each.
The first location listed is the site of the Treasure Map, while the second is the site of the Buried Treasure. For example in the first case for Mining Glory, Nidavellir is the site of the Treasure Map and The Applecore is the site of the Buried Treasure. Most buried treasure can be found in the same realm where you found the map, with the two exceptions for the Demise of Dagestr Treasure and A Scar is Born Treasure.

Mining Glory Treasure
Mining Glory Treasure Map in Nidavellir, Svartalfheim
The Mining Glory Treasure Map can be found in the dwarven city of Nidavellir, in Svartalfheim. You will need the Draupnir Spear to access it, which is acquired during the Forging Destiny main quest. Once you have this, go to the northern side of Nidavellir and throw the spear into a marked point in the wall, as shown in the screenshot below. This will give you a handhold to reach the platform above, where you’ll find the treasure map on the ground.
Mining Glory Buried Treasure Location in The Applecore
Now that you have the Treasure Map, you can look for the treasure in The Applecore, also located in Svartalfheim. You can travel here using a Mystic Gateway, or make your way there using the ferry in the southern part of Aurvangar Wetlands.
Once you’re in The Applecore, go north from The Applecore Descent Mystic Gateway (accessed after completing the main story), and follow the path until you reach a chain where you will encounter a troll named Miklimunnr. Continue by crawling through the hole to the north, and on the other side go through the door to the northwest. From here you can edge your way across the wall to the right, following the path as you grapple over to the platform facing northwest. This path leads to a spiraling structure which you can make your way down to the very bottom, where the treasure can be found as shown in the image below.

At the end of the area you’ll find a chain which you can kick down for easier access from the beach next time.

Forgotten Tower Buried Treasure Location in The Forbidden Sands of Alfheim
To find the Buried Treasure for the Forgotten Tower map, you need to travel to the northern side of The Forbidden Sands.
