All Torch locations for the Barrens Nornir Chest in God of War Ragnarök
You must find three torches and activate the Nornir Chest in The Barrens in God of War Ragnarök. Fortunately, all three are found right around the central hill where the chest is located on. This is directly in front of the massive skeletal creature. Here is where to find all torches for the Barrens Nornir Chest in God of War Ragnarök.
The first torch is incredibly easy to find. It is located on the rocks to the left of the Nornir Chest. Simply attach your Blades of Chaos to the torch to activate it.
Circle around to the right, and you will find a torch on the backside of the rocky outcropping. Throw your Blades of Chaos at it to activate the torch. Make sure you are close enough, or you will whiff your throw.
Finally, return to the Nornir Chest but do not climb on the platform. Look up, and you will spot the torch beside a bomb. Throw your Leviathan Axe at the bomb to activate it, and light the third and final torch.
