God of War: Ascension co-op weapons unleashed

The team at Sony Santa Monica has been working on an array of new weapons, armours, maps, and more for your champions. Today, we’re pleased to unveil a whole new set of weapons made especially for executing brutal co-op moves. With more than 10 possible co-op moves, these Mythological Heroes Weapons make an excellent addition to any arsenal. The new weapons include:

  •  Spear of Achilles
  •  Hammer of Odysseus
  •  Sword of Orion
  •  Sword of Perseus

We’ve also added Mythological Heroes Armours, previously reserved for those who pre-ordered God of War: Ascension. These include the Armour of Achilles, Odysseus, Orion, and Perseus.

The Mythological Heroes Weapons are available now on the PlayStation Network Store – simply search for “God of War”.

How do I use co-op weapons?
These weapons were designed to execute co-op moves easily to deliver heavy blows to your opponents. Here’s how they work:

1. Equip one of the four co-op weapons
2. Enter any multiplayer mode for God of War: Ascension
3. Execute either your L1 Triangle or L1 Square special attacks
4. Upon special attack execution, a green halo will appear over your champion’s head
5. Have a team mate tether you when the green halo appears to begin the co-op move

Only one player has to have a co-op weapon equipped to perform a special co-op move, but feel free to have as many teammates equipped with them as you like. The more mayhem, the better.


A new way to test out co-op weapons is coming soon! Until then, follow us @SonySantaMonica and www.godofwar.com for updates and more.

The weapons look cool.

I know this is off topic but is there any All-Star news? With the recent news of Dart concepts and a cancelled Gravity Rush/Journey stage . Also what about the Zeus & Issac costumes that was shown on the game by a glitch? Even a patch at this point would be nice since Kratos is still extremely overpowered, there is still a random character glitch and the level up glitch.

Could really use some more maps for co op.



Sorry, just an inside joke for Polish readers.


I purchased this Pack, but I’ve got only 1.25x multiplier in MP. However 2x was promised. :(
