A new camera hack for 2018’s God of War
has revealed that the game’s main villain, Baldur, gives you the middle finger when you can’t see him.
Well-known game hacker Lance McDonald – who’s previously revealed secrets in P.T., Bloodborne, and Dark Souls 3 – has now turned his sights on God of War. He’s already revealed one amusing easter egg inside the game that hasn’t been seen before.
It appears just after the opening fight between Kratos and Baldur. There’s a moment when Baldur seems to be defeated, lying limp on top of Kratos, just after the pair have wrestled in the snow. Kratos then pushes Baldur off of him and sends him plunging off a cliffside. It’s when Baldur is falling from that great height that McDonald spotted the easter egg.
Using a camera hack, McDonald reveals that Baldur raises both his middle fingers towards Kratos, flipping him off as he plummets. Very fitting for his character.

McDonald spent all of yesterday finishing off the work on his God of War camera hack that he started last year. Now that it’s complete, he’s able to move the game’s camera around freely, passing through walls, stopping time, and even exploring cutscenes. He says it works by “entering special button presses on the map screen.”
With this first discovery, McDonald says he “can’t wait to see what else is hidden in the game off-camera” – so watch this space.
In our God of War review, we gave it 10, saying that “God of War’s outstanding characters, world, and combat come together to form an unforgettable adventure.” With any luck, we’ll see a follow-up to God of War made for the PlayStation 5.
