God of War Ragnarok is set to launch in the coming months, and developer Santa Monica Studio hasn’t really revealed many combat details yet. The developer has shown off some weapons from the game in its first trailer, which include 2018 God of War’s Leviathan Axe and the Blades of Chaos. God of War Ragnarok is expected to have multiple weapons from Norse mythology. God of War 3 allowed Kratos to wield weapons he got from defeated gods, which is something we can expect from the new game too. Here are some of the weapons we may see in God of War Ragnarok:
God of War Ragnarok weapons we would like to see
Gungnir is a spear created by the dwarves in Norse mythology. Odin first threw Gungnir while leading the Aesir gods into battle against the Vanir. Since Odin is confirmed to be a part of God of War Ragnarok, we can expect Gungnir to make an appearance in the game. It is also likely that some variation of Gungnir may appear in God of War Ragnarok. In Norse mythology, Gungnir has carved runes across the body, which increases its accuracy using magic.
Mjolnir is probably the most iconic weapon in Norse mythology. Wielded by the mighty Thor himself, Mjolnir is confirmed to be in God of War Ragnarok. In the game’s trailer, you can see Kratos propel toward his enemies with Blades of Chaos as well as pull them towards him. Along with these, the Leviathan Axe can be thrown at enemies and it returns to Kratos. Just like these weapons, Mjolnir could have both abilities alongside additional elemental damage.
Hofud in Heimdall’s sword in Norse mythology. Heimdall is the guardian of Bifrost, who is also expected to make an appearance in God of War Ragnarok’s story. Hofud could possibly help Kratos and Atreus travel through the Nine Realms. Hofud may have some dangerous attacks that can assist Kratos and Atreus defeat bosses and powerful enemies.
