Hades 2: All Weapon Aspects and How to Unlock Them

Certainly worth all the grind

Weapon Aspects are perhaps one of the most important things in Hades 2, especially on later runs. These items are required to upgrade your weapons, and this will be necessary once you start taking on harder enemies. All five existing weapons have certain aspects that can be unlocked and upgraded with the help of different resources. Here are all Weapon Aspects in Hades 2 and how to unlock them.

How to Unlock Weapon Aspects in Hades 2

Weapon Aspects can only be brewed from recipes after you’ve unlocked all five nocturnal arms. Once you have all of them, speak with Hecate, who will hand you the recipe to brew aspects. If you manage to trigger the correct dialogue, you’ll get the incantation recipe for Aspects of Night and Darkness.

Go to the nocturnal arms pool, and all the available aspects will be visible. Make sure to have all the necessary reagents so that you can craft the weapon aspects after finding them. There are several ingredients, but Silver is quite common, and you can find it with our guide.
