How to remove the sand covering chests in God of War Ragnarök

What secrets lie beneath the sand?

God of War Ragnarök features the Nine Realms of Norse mythology, each with a unique theme, inhabitants, and quests. As you explore Alfheim, the home of the Light Elves, you will come across various chests buried under the sand. This may leave you wondering how to uncover chests in the Barrens of Alfheim in God of War Ragnarök.

How to get the chests covered by sand in The Barrens in God of War Ragnarök

When you first encounter the buried chests in God of War Ragnarök, you will not be able to interact with them or open them. Instead, you must first complete the Secrets of the Sand Favor. This requires you to descend into The Below and seek out the pained creature that Atreus hears in Alfheim.

Once you have completed this quest, you can return to any buried chest and collect your rewards. In addition to these chests, there are other items to find uncovered by the sand. This makes exploring the Barrens after completing the quest a must, as you can discover some good treasures.
