If you've been wandering around the Nine Realms of God of War Ragnarok, then you might have come across some mysterious yellow cracks. These weren't present in the last God of War game, which has many players questioning what on earth they are. You'll notice that they seem to block additional paths to explore, so it's no wonder that players will be looking for how to interact with them early in the story. The solution is very simple, but you'll need to play a good chunk of the game first. Here's how to break yellow cracks in God of War Ragnarok.

Spoiler Warning: This article contains spoilers for Chapter 10 of God of War Ragnarok.

While you might come across some yellow cracks early in the story of God of War Ragnarok, it's not possible to break them until much later in the game. You'll need to progress through the game until you reach Chapter 10, titled 'Forging Destiny'. In this quest, Kratos and Brok return to Svartelheim to forge a brand new weapon to defeat Heimdall, known as the Draupnir Spear.

This wind-powered explosive weapon is what Kratos can use to destroy the yellow cracks around the Nine Realms. When you see a collection of yellow cracks, aim the Draupnir Spear at them and fire. Then, detonate it to blow up the yellow cracks.

Some objects may have a collection of three yellow cracks to detonate all at once. If the cracks aren't breaking with one use of the Draupnir Spear, look around the find the others. Make sure you fire all three instances of the Spear before detonating them as they must all be destroyed at the same time.

In addition, you can use the Draupnir Spear to reach new heights or jump across large gaps. If you see a small hole in a wall with steam coming out of it, you can fire the Draupnir Spear into it to create a platform to launch yourself from. Just make sure you fire it from the right angle to lodge it into the surface correctly.

The Draupnir Spear is impossible to miss since it's a huge part of the story in God of War Ragnarok. If you haven't obtained it yet, simply keep playing until you come across it. There are plenty of places to use the Draupnir Spear in the God of War Ragnarok endgame, so keep an eye out for those subtle yellow cracks!
