How to get the Shoulder Straps of Radiance in God of War Ragnarok

Unlike the other pieces in this set, the Gauntlet of Radiance or the Belt of Radiance, you can find the Shoulder Straps of Radiance in a slightly more accessible location. Although it is still off the traditional path of the main story in Ragnarok, make sure you’re exploring the game instead of simply doing the main story quests.

The Shoulder Straps of Radiance appear towards the end of the Secret of the Sands side quest. You’ll receive this quest when you enter The Barrens, a desert in Alfheim that becomes available to you after you clear the Tower of Light with Tyr. This quest has you attempting to free a creature in pain with Atreus, and the two go deep underground in The Barrens to a location known as The Below.

When you reach the quest’s end and free the creature, a Hafgufa, from its bindings, you will need to escape to the surface. However, before you reach the top, there is a legendary chest on the left side of the final room. Inside will be the Shoulder Straps of Radiance, which you can equip upon looting.
