Making its appearance again in God of War Ragnarök, the Blades of Chaos is perhaps Kratos’ most iconic weapon. Give this weapon the credit it deserves by fully upgrading it, bringing out its full destructive potential.

The Blades of Chaos is upgraded by collecting Chaos Flames. You can obtain some of these through the main story, but you’ll have to earn the rest by doing certain side quests.
