How to Jump & Climb in God of War Ragnarok

You can jump from platform to platform in God of War Ragnarok, but it isn’t as easy as you’d think. If you’re wondering how to jump in the game, below we will show you how.

God of War Ragnarok lets you explore stunning locations filled with secrets to uncover. But while this grand adventure will take you across the nine realms, many wonder if you can jump across it.

If you’ve been playing God of War Ragnarok and are wondering just how you jump, never fear. You’re not alone, and fortunately for you, we have all the answers you seek.

Can You Jump in God of War Ragnarok?

Yes, you can jump between certain platforms and off of specific ledges in God of War Ragnarok. However, there is no dedicated jump button, so outside of those moments, you cannot jump.

As God of War Ragnarok is a mostly linear game, jumping is reserved for specific areas. You can jump to a platform with a chest on it, for example, but not randomly as you explore.

How to Jump in God of War Ragnarok

To jump in God of War Ragnarok, you need to find a suitable ledge or platform and press the O (circle) button. These platforms will usually be indicated with painted runes or patterns on them.

It may require a little common sense, but for the most part, if you try and press O (circle) next to an area where you can’t jump, nothing will happen.

You can also perform jump attacks from ledges too. It’s easy to do and a very effective way of dealing a lot of damage.

  • Sprint off of a ledge (hold down R3 and push forwards towards the ledge)
  • While in the air press R1
  • Kratos will swing down with his Levithian axe and send enemies flying into the air

Can You Climb in God of War Ragnarok?

Yes, you can climb in God of War Ragnarok. However, like jumping, climbing is limited to specific sections and not freeform like in Breath of the Wild.

You’ll know when you can climb up a ledge or a cliff by either breaks in the wall or painted runes guiding your way up.

How to Climb in God of War Ragnarok

Climbing in God of War Ragnarok requires you to head to a climbable ledge or wall and press the O (circle) button. It is essentially the same way you jump from platform to platform and interact with objects.

It couldn’t be easier, and after a while will become second nature to you. Just look out for those painted runes on walls, and you’ll be fine.
