Leviathan Axe

Leviathan Axe is Kratos\’ first main weapon in God of War Ragnarok. It is capable of dealing both melee and ranged damage. The Axe has ice powers that enable the player to freeze enemies and expose them to attacks.

You can assign two types of runic attacks to the Axe – light and heavy. You need to charge the attacks before using them, and activating them produces certain results. You can upgrade runic attacks by spending experience points amassed by Kratos.

  1. Leviathan Axe deals extra damage to fire-set targets.
  2. The weapon is useful when facing fire-resistant enemies (fire health bar).
  3. If struck by frost, enemies become unable to defend themselves for a certain period of time due to the Axe\’s ice powers.
  4. You can push frozen enemies off cliffs and shelves to shatter them into pieces.
  5. Leviathan Axe\’s heavy attack (hold R2) impales lesser enemies onto the blade, allowing Kratos to throw them back in the chosen direction.
  6. The Axe can be used to destroy hanging objects such as baskets or jugs while exploring.
  7. Moving elements such as gears can be frozen with the Axe.
  8. Light elves can be stunned by throwing the Axe at their masks to rip them from their faces.
  9. You can throw the axe at the legs of opponents moving on two legs, making the enemy trip over and opening them up for further punishment.
  10. The Axe can also be used to attack airborne targets.

Blades of Chaos

Blades of Chaos is a classic weapon in the God of War series. These chained blades can inflict damage on multiple enemies simultaneously while Kratos stays at a distance. The Blades can also set enemies and objects on fire.

You can install and use two types of runic attacks with Blades of Chaos – light and heavy. The Blades of Chaos, like the Leviathan Axe and the Draupnir Spear, can also be upgraded by spending experience points earned by Kratos.

The Blades are a powerful weapon in God of War Ragnarok, dealing extra damage to frozen opponents. They are especially useful when fighting enemies invulnerable to ice and have a long range, allowing you to stay safe while hurting opponents. The Blades can also grab airborne enemies and hurl them in a chosen direction, making them a versatile weapon. In addition to combat, they are needed to solve some of the Nornir Chests\’ puzzles and destroy environmental obstacles.

The Draupnir Spear is Kratos\’s final main weapon, unlocked later in the story. It is imbued with the power of wind, making it useful for reaching inaccessible areas. The spear can be used in both melee and ranged combat, with the ability to add runic attacks. Each thrown spear that strikes an enemy can be detonated to inflict more damage. The spear can also be used to destroy fissures and act as a rod for climbing.

Shields in God of War Ragnarok have multiple functionalities, including defense, stunning enemies, and attacking if Kratos doesn\’t have any weapon equipped. Shields can be equipped with special attachments that increase Kratos\’ attributes and offer additional effects. The main functionality of a shield is parrying and blocking enemy attacks, with successful parrying quickly filling up the enemy stun bar. Heavy shields absorb damage and don\’t throw Kratos off balance when blocked.

Upgrading weapons and shields requires rare crafting ingredients obtained by progressing and exploring the world of God of War Ragnarok. The Leviathan Axe requires Frozen Flame, the Blades of Chaos require Chaos Flame, and the Draupnir Spear requires Gale Flame. Handles, shields, and shield attachments also require silver and crafting materials found throughout the game.

Spartan Rage

At the start of the story, Kratos has one version of Spartan Rage available to him. As you progress through the game, two more versions will be unlocked.

  1. Fury: Kratos unleashes his rage, and each attack he makes restores some of his health.
  2. Valor: This version of Spartan Rage restores a large amount of Kratos\’ health once.
  3. Wrath: Kratos channels his Spartan Rage to attack an enemy nearby, dealing heavy damage and adding additional weapon effects. Plus, each enemy killed replenishes some of his health.

Remember that you can stop using Spartan Rage at any time by pressing the appropriate buttons (L3 R3 by default). However, deactivating Spartan Frenzy uses some of the rage bar.

Each version of Spartan Rage can be upgraded up to level 3 using experience points.


Relics are special items that can be activated to trigger an additional effect. For instance, the Hilt of Gram restores Kratos\’ Rage and stuns enemies nearby. The Talisman of Meign provides a melee damage bonus for a short period, while the Hilt of Ridill unleashes a lightning wave that damages enemies.

Relics can be upgraded up to level 3 using Kratos\’ experience points.


What weapons will be available in God of War Ragnarok?

As of now, it is unclear what weapons will be available in God of War Ragnarok. However, fans can expect to see some new weapons added to the game, as well as some old favorites making a return. In the previous game, Kratos wielded the Leviathan Axe and the Blades of Chaos, which both had their own unique abilities and playstyles. It is possible that these weapons will make a comeback in the sequel, but it is also likely that new weapons will be introduced to keep the gameplay fresh and exciting. Fans will have to wait for more information to be released about the game\’s weapons and combat system.

Will Kratos be able to upgrade his weapons in God of War Ragnarok?

It is highly likely that Kratos will be able to upgrade his weapons in God of War Ragnarok. In the previous game, Kratos was able to upgrade both the Leviathan Axe and the Blades of Chaos by collecting resources and completing specific tasks. These upgrades allowed the weapons to deal more damage, have new abilities and combos, and even change their appearance. It is safe to assume that the developers will continue to allow players to upgrade their weapons in the sequel, and potentially add even more customization options. Upgrading weapons is an important aspect of the game, as it allows players to tailor their playstyle to their preferences and take on tougher enemies as they progress through the story.
