Switching Weapons in God of War Ragnarok

At the very start of God of War Ragnarok, Kratos is able to tap on both the Leviathan Axe and the Blades of Chaos as his main ways of eliminating his foes. If you are looking to wield the cold-infused Leviathan Axe, you can press Right on the D-pad. To switch over to the flaming Blades of Chaos instead, proceed to press Left on the D-pad.

Once you have unlocked the third weapon in the form of the Draupnir Spear, switching over to it just requires pressing Down on the D-pad. The Draupnir Spear is made by Brok with the help of the Lady in the Water, and is meant as a weapon to defeat Heimdall. It can also be used to help with Nornir chests which require simultaneous destruction of runes, destroy yellow glowing rocks, and be used as poles in places where there is an air vent.

With the enemy variety being thrown at Kratos and gang, deftly switching between weapons will allow you to counter effectively and make difficult encounters a little more manageable. Just remember, freezing enemies take extra damage from flames, and burning enemies take extra damage from the cold. If you need to stun something quickly and effectively, use the spear.
