In God of War, Kratos wields the Leviathan Axe which is a two-handed most valuable weapon in the game. After Thor’s destruction, the Huldra brothers created the Leviathan. To fully upgrade this weapon to its maximum level of 6, you will have to complete the story, collect several “Frozen Flames” and then unlock the “Worthy Trophy”. After this, your weapon is fully upgraded!
This God of war guide will help you know how to fully upgrade the Leviathan Axe to level 6 and at what locations will you find the Frozen Flames needed for the upgrade. You don’t need to pay hacksilver or any other resource, all that you need is Frozen Flames.
Frozen Flames are special rare items that will be given to the blacksmiths Brok and Sindri to upgrade the Axe to the final level. There are only five locations where you can find these very rare items. This guide will cover all those locations.
God of War: How to Fully Upgrade the Leviathan Axe
River Pass Bridge
As you begin with the story, you will meet Brok, the dwarf on your way.
After helping him move his steed, Brok gives Kratos a free upgrade to his Leviathan Axe. Brok’s shop now allows you to upgrade and craft Armor. The event awards you with a Frozen Flame and allows you to automatically upgrade your Leviathan Axe. The Leviathan Axe’s strength is increased by 25 and upgraded to level 2.
Next, you will receive a story quest with the name ‘Path to the Mountain’ and then move forward to the mountain. You have to defeat multiple enemies there and meet Sindri, another dwarf. As you climb up the mountain, you will have to defeat Ogre and several Reavers and then you will have your second Frozen Flame.
The Mountain Mine
You may now go and enter the mountain after dispersing the Black Breath. You’ll be up against a lot of enemies here, and you’ll have to solve a lot of puzzles to proceed. You’ll be able to release the pulley system and descend once you’ve progressed farther up the mountain. Then you will meet Jan Fotr, the troll. He has the ability to control ice. You must be cautious since this troll utilizes ice to inflict additional damage on you. Several Draugr will join the fight after bringing him back to half health. If you win, you’ll receive the third Frozen Flame you’ll need to upgrade your Leviathan Axe.
Under the Corpse of Thamur the Giant
The next quest is The Magic Chisel which will let you uncover the hidden chambers and confront the Valkyries. You can uncover the hidden chambers and confront the Valkyries by progressing through the quest The Magic Chisel, Magni, and Modi block you at the end of the quest. To finish the quest you have to fight Magni and Modi, the final bosses. You’ll get the Fourth Frozen Flame for beating that boss fight.
Niflheim, the realm of Fog
The main story is completed but still, you need to work a little more. You can only buy it from Sindri in exchange for an item called ‘Chilling Mist of Niflheim‘. This item is found in a chest in the center of the Niflheim maze that costs 5000 Mist Echoes to open. You need to get to Niflheim, the realm of fog, and complete the challenges that Sindri will give which will allow you to earn Mist echoes.
Proceed to the center of the Niflheim maze after you have collected the required Mist Echoes. There you will find numerous chests with loot. After you find the Chilling mist of Niflheim, head back to Sindri and exchange the Chilling mist with the fifth and the last Frozen Flame.
And that’s it! Once you receive all the five Frozen Flame, your Leviathan Axe will be upgraded to Level 6 and you will receive the trophy called ‘Worthy’.
Each time your Axe is upgraded, the level of the weapon will increase by one, and Kratos’ strength will boost which will eventually increase the overall level. New abilities based on it will also be unlocked. Since the Axe is the most important weapon throughout the game, try to upgrade it as soon as you can.
