Runic Attacks, aside from combos, are the bread and butter of Kratos' arsenal in God of War Ragnarök. The titular hero will acquire both Light and Heavy Runic Attacks for his three weapons as he and his companions venture across the nine realms. The Blades of Chaos live up to their name with some absolutely brutal Heavy Runic Attacks. Here are your options and where to find them.
God of War Rangarök - Blades of Chaos Heavy Runic Attacks
|Runic Attack||Where to Acquire||Effect|
|Tartarus Rage||Legendary Chest in Midgard - Raider Hideout||Two destructive blade slams stagger and launch enemies.|
|Nemean Crush||Legendary Chest in Alfheim - The Burrows||Emits a volley of explosive mortars outward from the blast.|
|Meteoric Slam||Legendary Chest in Niflheim - The Raven Tree||A powerful slam attack that rains down fire in a wide arc, inflicting scattered Burn status.|
|Tame the Beast||Legendary Chest in Helheim during Reunion quest (if missed, purchase at blacksmith)||A series of blade whips scorch nearby enemies. Press R2 again for more swipes.|
|Atlas Eruption||Legendary Chest in Svartalfheim - The Forge||Repeatedly slam both blades into the ground to spark explosions all around. Mash R2 for more slams.|
While each of the Blades of Chaos Heavy Runic Attacks is found in Legendary Chests, don't fret too much about finding them immediately. There is a lot of backtracking in God of War Rangarök as Kratos acquires new skills and items to traverse the many puzzles he encounters. Also, remember that Runic Attacks can also be upgraded. This will prove exceptionally handy when taking on some of the tougher enemies in the game.
