The Leviathan Axe can be upgraded numerous times, but you’ll need to find a Frozen Flame in God of War Ragnarok to do it.

Kratos has a few weapons to use, but none are as reliable as the Leviathan Axe, his frost-inflicting tool that can return upon his command.

However, over time the Leviathan Axe won’t be able to keep up with some of the tougher enemies, meaning you’ll need to upgrade it. This means finding some extremely rare Frozen Flames.

You’ll find your Dwarven allies in a variety of places throughout God of War’s Nine Realms. However, they’re usually close to a gateway on the map.

After that, you’ll gain access to new skills which you can spend Kratos’ XP on. This will enhance your abilities in combat.

Similarly, players can find Chaos Flames to upgrade the Blades of Chaos. It’s good to sharpen both of your main weapons.

Getting these Frozen Flames will definitely help you complete God of War Ragnarok’s extensive trophy list and earn the Platinum Trophy.
