Orb Chests are chests that can be found in the God of War Series, and grant certain orbs, with different abilities, when opened.
Green Orb ChestsEdit
Blue Orb ChestsEdit
This is a type of chest found in the God of War series. It is marked by a blue glow on top. When Kratos opens it, he'll receive a bunch of Blue Orbs for his magic meter.
Red Orb ChestsEditIt is marked by a red glow on top. When Kratos opens it, he'll receive a certain amount of Red Orbs, to upgrade his weapons and magic abilities. Usually, this amount increases over the end of the games. Also, it considerably decreases in the hardest modes of God of War II and God of War III, at the point that some chests don't give any orbs.
Gold Orb ChestsEdit
This is a rare type of chest found only in God of War II. It is marked by a gold glow on top. When Kratos opens it, he receives Gold Orbs for his Rage of the Titans meter. Only a few are encountered in the game: one in Typhon's Lair; and four gold-blue combination chests in these locations: the Hall of Atropos, the Phoenix Chamber, the path to the Loom Chamber, and the lower level of the Loom Chamber, near Clotho.
This is a type of chest found in the God of War series. It continuously switches between two colours, usually green and blue. In God of War II, some of these chests switch between blue and yellow. When Kratos opens it, he'll receive a certain type of orb depending on which colour is on the chest when he opens it.
