Just like the previous game, God of War Ragnarok gives Kratos a couple of weapons to play with, each having its own benefits and downsides. If you are unsure how each weapon in God of War Ragnarok works, allow us to explain how best to perform with them.
God of War Ragnarok weapons
This is the first weapon of Kratos in the game. Having strong attacking powers for both short and long-range targets makes this weapon to be regarded as the top among the spotlighted ones. Possessing the ice attributes this Axe becomes very lethal, especially for closer targets as it slows down the enemies.
In addition to these, it can also be thrown at enemies. Use the L2 key to aim and R2 to throw. After throwing, it can be called back using the Triangle button.
There are a total of 9 upgrade levels. Each upgrade adds 15 points to the strength of the axe. The minimum value for the strength is 10 against Level 1 and the highest value is 130 against level 9.
Blades of Chaos
