What a Health Burst is in God of War Ragnarok and Why It Stops

A Health Burst in God of War Ragnarok is exactly how it sounds: a burst of health that heals Kratos. It’s one of several passives and activated abilities that Kratos has at his disposal in the game.

Though Kratos is immortal in God of War Ragnarok, he isn’t invulnerable and has a limited source of health. You can heal by grabbing Health Stones or activating Spartan Rage, but you can also regain health through a Health Burst.

Health Burst appears as a passive on certain equipment, such as the Nidavellir armor set. When the passive triggers, Kratos heals a small amount for the duration of the buff, which is why a Health Burst eventually stops in the game.

Now you understand what a Health Burst is in God of War Ragnarok and why it stops. It’s just a small passive buff that lasts a few seconds, but still, a great stat to have in a pinch—especially with the Nidavellir armor set proccing off of stun grabs.
