Talon Bow Runic Summons
Runic Summons are abilities for Atreus that can be found inside of chests.
You can only have one runic summon at a time which can be used by holding the square button. There are two different levels that you can upgrade each of your Runic Attacks to. Let us see all of the Runic Attacks that Atreus can use.
A lot of boars will charge forward in the direction you are facing. They will head out in a cone formation and increasing the level will add additional boards to the formation.
This attack casts spectral falcons who fly around for a really short amount of time before bombing the ground. Leveling up will increase the number of falcons and thus increase the damage and area of effect of the attack.
Storm of the Elks
A deer walks towards Kratos and staggers the enemies around him. It will later detonate and knock up enemies into the air. Increasing the level of increasing the duration and the range of the attack.
Murder of Crows
A murder of crows will enter the fight and distract enemies in front of Kratos. They will also explode and deal a small amount of damage towards the end. Leveling up will cause the crows to increase in number and last longer.
Wrath of the Wolf
A wolf enters the battle and attacks the enemies three times. It can also stun the enemy or shock it along with dealing damage. An increase in level adds additional wolves to attack more enemies.
This squirrel will find consumables for you. The stones appear for only about 20 seconds so remember to pick them up as fast as possible. Leveling it up will cause more consumables to be dropped.
