GOD of War Ragnarök is filled with exploration, and with that, there are some tricky parts to the game
If you’re struggling with The Weight of Chains side mission in God of War, look no further because we’ve got it covered.
How to find the Watchtower Key for The Weight of Chains side quest.
Once you arrive on the island and your boat is docked, you can set off to find the Watchtower Key.
There is gilded metal to your right and an explosive pot next to it.
Throw your ax at the pot to tear down the surrounding rubble and prepare to fight some wretches.
Don’t stop, just keep pushing forward as you’ll have to destroy the nest at the top of the slope to prevent them from spawning.
Behind it is a platform that you can climb and go to the far left corner to find another exploding pot.
Once it booms, climb up the path and up the other side where you’ll find another slum.
Here is a gate you can open; You will get a link back later.
Spin the wheel to lower the lift and once it’s all the way back use your ax to freeze the cog and leave it there.
Go back up the path, but go right rather than the path you came from.
This will take you to the elevator, where you can recall your ax to take the elevator upstairs. Smash through the ground when you see the prompt.
Once you kill the enemy down here, you can open the chest to find the Watchtower Key.
Grab this and then go back to the tower above Sindri’s shop to unlock the door.
If you interact with the drum here, you will find a hidden location, Lyngbakr Island.
How to free the beast for The Weight of Chains side quest
A creature will emerge from the bay, and you must use your boat to sail there.
Once you’ve docked to it, climb up to take out some enemies.
You’ll find another explosive glass on the south side, and once it bursts you can break through the first chain.
Once that’s done, throw your ax at the connector on the fin as it rises out of the water to clear another path.
Follow this one and turn right to find more enemies to deal with.
After that, climb up the chain to our right and you’ll find a lore token at the top.
As you look at it, turn left and brace across the gap. The chest here contains some Hacksilver.
Go left to find another group of enemies. Deal with her and kick down the chain to climb down the north side.
From here you can cut through the other chains, and once the fin is raised you can throw your ax at the connector again to free it.
This will expose a snag that you need to clear out. Once you’re done you’ll find a firebomb dispenser, some will grab one to clear the debris.
Here’s a chest with Rawhide and Hacksilver, and down by the dock there’s more debris to clear.
Do this and then open a door near the dispenser to create a shortcut.
After that, grab a third bomb before jumping west via the route.
Clear the debris here and reach over to find a chest with Slag Deposits and Hacksilver.
There’s also a small hole on the north side that you can crawl through to find another Hacksilver chest and a raven.
Go back to your boat to free the beast’s tail and complete this mission.
