While exploring the realm of Midgard in God of War, players will stumble across various treasure maps along the way. Each treasure map indicates the location of hidden treasure with a brief description and vague photo of where to search for the buried goods. There’s twelve treasure maps total, but for this guide we’re going to focus on the Dead and Bloated treasure map in God of War. Follow the steps below to find the Dead and Bloated treasure map itself as well as its solution.
Dead and Bloated Treasure Map Location
To find the Dead and Bloated treasure map in God of War, make your way to the Volunder Mines just north of The Mountain. When you reach the open area within the mine, look for a chain beside the wooden walkway before the scaffolding. Drop down the chain and search along the ground beside the red chest to find the Dead and Bloated treasure map scroll.
Once you find the Dead and Bloated treasure map, you should have all the info you need to go out and find its hidden treasure. The Dead and Bloated treasure map description reads: ”The troll who killed my kin is slain, but the battle has taken its toll. I’ve buried whatever I have left near his corpse. Ingrid and I used to frequent this beach to watch the sun rise over the temple.”
Dead and Bloated Treasure Map Solution
The beach mentioned in the map clue is none other than the Cliffs of the Raven, which is located just west of the Volunder Mines. To get there, hop in a boat and set sail for the ice-covered canals along the southeast shore of The Lake of Nine.
When you reach Cliffs of the Raven, make your way to the back part of the area where a large troll corpse is located, across from the brazier. Search the ground in front of the troll corpse to discover the buried treasure marked on the Dead and Bloated treasure map.
Completing the Dead and Bloated treasure map rewards you with a Legendary Oblivion Stone, which can be used to upgrade your axe Pommel with life-draining effects. This item certainly comes in handy, so make sure you visit either Brok or Sindri to upgrade your weapon after finishing the Dead and Bloated treasure map quest in God of War. You will also walk away with a rare enchantment, some Soft Svartalfheim Steel, and a decent chunk of Hacksilver. Head over to our God of War walkthrough and guide for more gameplay tips and tricks!
