For those that are wondering how to upgrade your weapons, armor, and more in God of War Ragnarok, here are the details.

Upgrading Equipment in God of War Ragnarok

As in the 2018 soft reboot, upgrading your gear in God of War Ragnarok is done via the Blacksmith. Whether it be Sindri or Brok, the dwarves are always happy to lend you a hand if you happen to have the right resources. This means Hacksilver as well as upgrade components that you can loot from the world.

Once you are at the Blacksmith, press Circle to open up the equipment menu, and choose between Weapons or Armor, selecting the equipment then shows you what you need in order to upgrade to the net level, all the way up to Level 9. Once you are sure of your choice, hold Square to purchase the upgrade.
