The Draupnir Spear is the latest addition to Kratos’ arsenal in God of War Ragnarök. Players can obtain this incredible weapon during the Forging Destiny main quest, and they can start upgrading it from there.

The weapon starts at level 5 and its max level is 9. Players will need Gale Flames to upgrade the Draupnir Spear. This means the player will only need to collect four of these to fully upgrade the spear.
