How to Find the Raider Stronghold

The Raider Stronghold location is a subregion in the Lake of Nine, in Midgard. While you’ll travel to Midgard a few times early in the game, you won’t really get the opportunity to explore it properly until the main quest The Word of Fate. After this point, any time you’re free to explore you can return to Midgard and seek out collectibles.

Midgard was always centered around the Lake of Nine, but in God of War Ragnarok this trend is reinforced. Around a third of the collectibles in Midgard can be found in the Lake of Nine region, which is underselling how central this location is, as many subregions with their own collectibles are encompassed by or peripheral to the Lake of Nine. The Raider Stronghold is a prime example, being a subregion established in the frozen ruins of the eastern end of Tyr’s Temple, under the bridge

The Raider Stronghold is, as its name implies, occupied by Kol Raiders, these ones being particularly fond of fire. Once you kill them you’ll start the favor Animal Instincts, which tasks you with eliminating four Kol Raider camps, including The Raider Stronghold. Unlike most favors, Animal Instincts doesn’t count as a collectible… It counts as four, with each raider camp being its own separate collectible. Merely clearing the Kol Raiders out from the Raider Stronghold is sufficient to complete one of the two collectibles for this region.

Where to Find All Legendary Chests in the Raider Stronghold

Legendary Chest - Cyclone of Chaos

Enter the main chamber of the Raider Stronghold and defeat the four pyromaniacal Kol Raiders within. Once they’re dead, head down a passage to the south and you’ll find this chest sitting right out in the open. Loot it to obtain the Cyclone of Chaos, a Light Runic Attack for the Blades of Chaos.
