Hades is a high-octane dungeon crawler that combines exciting gameplay and a riveting storyline. In it, players follow the story of Zagreus, Hades’s immortal son, as he tries to escape the Underworld and climb Mt. Olympus. To progress, you’ll need to battle through hordes of monsters with weapons known as Infernal Arms.

Hades was released in September 2020. At the time, the game was only available for PC and Nintendo Switch. But because of its popularity, the developers ported the game to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. So, now that it’s more accessible to the gaming community, it’s only fitting that we help you maximize your strategy with our Hades Weapons Tier List.

HADES WEAPON TIER LIST

There are six Infernal Arms in Hades, and each has four different sets of stat buffs. These variations manifest through a weapon’s Aspects. For this Hades Weapon Tier List, we’ll be ranking every known combination in one of four tiers: S, A, B, or C.

HADES WEAPON TIER LIST: ASPECTS

Now that you know the best weapons in the game, you’ll need to understand how Aspects work.

Don’t worry coz our Hades Weapon Tier List got you!

Aspects are essentially variations of a specific weapon. Each Aspect draws inspiration from a mythological figure, most of whom are from the Greek mythos. Some offer passive stat buffs, like increased movement speed and higher critical chance.

Meanwhile, other special Aspects can do as much as alter Zagreus’s attack styles. This can range from changing the way you move with the weapon to replacing its special skill!

Unlocking Aspects

Players can gain more Aspects for their weapons with Titan Blood. It’s an in-game currency obtained by completing bounties in the Underworld. The more Titan Blood you earn, the more you’ll be able to upgrade your arsenal.

Hidden Aspects

Hidden Aspects are overhauls of the game’s Infernal Arms. They present drastic changes to the way Zagreus wields the weapon and are even based on figures outside of Greek mythology. Because they’re so special, they cannot be unlocked with Titan Blood and require a secret phrase. To find the phrase, explore the world of Hades and talk to other characters. You never know when an NPC will blurt out the sentence you need. Hint: You’ll need to beat the final boss at least once during your playthrough and obtain an item known as the Fated List of Minor Prophecies.

 

Now that you know what to use and avoid among all the characters’ weapons in Hades, let’s now learn more about the S-Tier’s weapon build and boons on the next page.
