Runic attacks, combos aside, are the bread and butter of Kratos’ arsenal in God of War Ragnarok. The protagonist will receive both light and heavy runic attacks for each of the three weapons as he and his comrades embark on a journey through the nine worlds. Blades of Chaos certainly lives up to its name with some absolutely brutal heavy rune attacks. Here are your options and where to find them.
God of War Rangarök – Heavy Runic Attacks Blades of Chaos

Note that while each of the Heavy Rune Attacks of the Blades of Chaos is found in Legendary Chests, don’t worry about finding them right away. God of War Rangarök often has to backtrack as Kratos acquires new skills and items to solve the many puzzles he faces. Also remember that Runic Attacks can also be upgraded. This will prove to be exceptionally handy when fighting some of the toughest enemies in the game.
