God of War Ragnarok: all Ratatasks and rewards

As pressing a matter that the end of the world (aka Ragnarok) is in God of War Ragnarok, there’s always time to diverge from the main path and do some side activities. The game is a realm-hopping adventure, and essentially every place you visit has something optional you can do. There are main side quests, called Favours, but also smaller objectives you can do throughout your playthrough called Labours.

Many Labours are tied to your skills or various collectibles, but there is one special set called Ratatasks. Named after the caretaker of the world tree Yggdrasil Ratatoskr, this mystic squirrel will present you with four categories of tasks, each with multiple tasks, tiers, and rewards for completion. There are a ton of these, so knowing which ones to go for if you want the best rewards will save you quite a bit of effort. Frost up your ax and get ready to unleash your Spartan rage as we go over every Ratatask and their rewards in God of War Ragnarok.

Just like Skill Labours, Ratatasks can be completed all across your journey through the nine realms in God of War Ragnarok. The only exception is that you can’t earn any progress toward them in the training areas.

After making it a certain amount through the story, Ratatoskr will unload a ton of tasks on you to complete if you wish. They are broken down into four major categories: Anxious, Arrogant, Bitter, and Perfectionist, with each one having a unique list of tasks within them. Each of those tasks is also broken up into Bronze, Silver, and Gold tiers, with better XP payouts for completing each one. Thankfully, you don’t need to turn in any of these tasks and automatically earn the rewards as soon as you meet the requirements.

Here are all the Ratatasks for each category, plus how much XP you earn for completing each tier.

Death Stranding 2: release date speculation, trailers, gameplay, and more
Sam Bridges walks on a ridge in front of the moon.

There were plenty of hints along the way, and even some leaks by the leading man himself, but it was only made official at the Game Awards 2022 that Death Stranding 2: On the Beach is on its way. Coming from the same influential and creative mind as the original, as well as the Metal Gear franchise before it, Hideo Kojima introduced the game himself. Of course, nothing about Kojima's games are straight forward, and what was revealed about Death Stranding 2 probably raised more questions than it answered. We're strapping on our boots, connecting to our BBs, and are ready to make the trek to find out everything there is about Death Stranding 2.
Release date speculation

Death Stranding 2: On the Beach only has the wide release window of 2025.
