God of War gives players a wide variety of puzzles to complete during their playthrough. One of the most notable puzzle types is the Nornir Chests that players will encounter throughout the Realms. Nornir Chest will start to appear early in the game and will persist through to the very end. Nornir Chests can be difficult to complete, but one that can especially give players trouble is the one on Dragon Beach. This is located in Svartalfheim, not far from another Nornir Chest.

To find this Rune, players will need to use Kratos' Leviathan Axe to freeze the water spout directly behind the Chest. This will reveal the location of the Rune. To actually break the Rune, players must aim at its location, retrieve the Axe (this will cause the water to begin flowing again), and then throw the Axe through the water.
This Rune will be obtained the same way as Rune #1, but it is found in a different location. The water spout concealing this Rune is located on the southern side of Dragon Island.
Rune #3 is a bit of a tricky one. Players are supposed to use a special item to get a vantage point above the Rune, throwing the Leviathan Axe down to break it. However, this can be avoided by allowing players to open this chest far earlier than intended. Players must locate the dragon sculpture on the island and walk around to the backside. The top of the Rune can barely be spotted and should be targetable using the Leviathan Axe.

Since this Nornir Chest isn't a time trial, players can do this at their own pace, targeting the Runes in any order they see fit. It is easiest to take out the Runes nearest to the Chest and work outward from there, but there isn't any downside in doing it another way.
