How to Use Runic Attacks in God of War Ragnarok
Runic Attacks are part of Kratos' moveset from early in the game. They can be extremely effective against crowds, often dealing elemental damage as well as physical damage and building up the stun bar. They are split into Light Runic Attacks and Heavy Runic Attacks, and you can equip one of each on each weapon.
To use Runic Attacks, hold L1 and press R1 for a Light Runic Attack, or hold L1 and press R2 for a Heavy Runic Attack.
Once used, a Runic Attack will take some time to recharge before you can use it again. The amount of time varies between Runic Attacks, and you can reduce these times overall by improving Kratos' Cooldown stat.
