How To Upgrade Weapons In Hades and Find Daedalus Hammer
The weapons mechanism in Hades is quite different from other games you may have played. The Daedalus Hammer plays a crucial role in upgrades and without it, upgrading the weapons is not possible.
What is the Daedalus Hammer? It’s an artifact in the game that improves the capability of weapons by upgrading the attacks. If you are in luck, you can find it as the reward for the first room that you clear in the game. The game also provides you the option to purchase it for 200 Obols from Charon.
As the drop of the hammer is random, you can get it in the first room or you may have to go through multiple rooms. We were in luck and found it in the first room’s loot.
As mentioned earlier, the other option to obtain the hammer is to purchase it from Charon for 200 Obols. You can only acquire two hammers and the capabilities of both will stack up. You can find the first hammer in Tartarus or Asphodel, and the second in Elysium. However, if you only have a single hammer when you reach Temple of Styx, you can find one here as well.
The effect of the Daedalus Hammer varies from one weapon to the other. Some weapons will experience minor upgrades, while other can experience a complete overhaul affecting the gameplay and usage. Weapons upgrades are almost always a good thing as they deal more damage, but a complete change in the weapon will require you to get used to the new way to use the weapon.
One of the weapons you cannot upgrade is the Zagreus’s cast, it will remain the same no matter the upgrades you apply.
So, in a nutshell, that’s how you use the Daedalus Hammer to upgrade weapons in Hades. Keep a watch on this post as we will update it with new weapons you can upgrade and their capabilities.
