Hades 2: All Weapons & Weapon Aspects

Hades 2 players will need a weapon and Weapon Aspects to assist them on their journey. Here is a full list of all weapons and Weapon Aspects in the game.

While you may have the tools you need to gather resources in Hades 2, weapons are what save your skin in the game. As you progress through your run, enemies will become less forgiving, and not having the upper hand can cost you all of your progress. Luckily, if you are curious about what weapons to use to help, we have all the information and the Aspects to use with them below.

How Many Weapons & Weapon Aspects Are There in Hades 2?

There are five different weapons for players to unlock and use in Hades 2, with one being the standard starting weapon. The weapons vary in gameplay styles, from close-range melee to distanced combat. Four of the weapons are unlocked by collecting resources. Below, we have created a table on how to unlock the weapons and their aspects.

Furthermore, there are 15 Weapon Aspects to unlock and use while playing Hades 2. The Weapon Aspects help to tailor the equipped weapon around specific gameplay styles. Some of them work to grant you extra Omega move speed, while others help with survivability. Having a Weapon Aspect helps to turn the tide of the fight for you.
