The Transmog Feature in God of War Ragnarök Explained

The transmog feature allows customizing Kratos’ appearance without affecting stats. In God of War (2018), I often had to wear less appealing outfits for better stats. The transmog feature fixes this issue, but there’s a catch!

Where to Find the Transmog Feature

Before the game’s release, many players were unsure about the transmog feature, as the developer confirmed its inclusion in Ragnarök, yet the God of War Ragnarok itself offered no information about it. You may have searched through the menus without success, as I did, but it’s worth noting that you can only unlock it later in the game. Without revealing any story details, you’ll discover the transmog option hidden in the Armor Tab.

Do note that you have to max out the levels of the pieces of armor if you want to be able to use this feature!

Steps to Transmog your Armor 

You can upgrade gear pieces to different levels. To transmog, first upgrade a gear piece to level 9. Then, you can access the edit appearance feature and choose from all your upgraded gear pieces.

Let’s get you through the steps of doing it:

  • Open the Armor Tab
  • Select one from the options i.e. Chest, Waist or Wrist
  • You’ll see the option to “Edit Appearance” if it’s maxed out
  • Press ‘Square’ to transmog it.

More about Customization regarding transmog

Once you unlock the upgrades, feel free to get creative and switch between colors. Unfortunately, you must upgrade each gear piece to the max before changing its appearance. Some armor sets look cool but may not suit your play style. This applies to gloves and waist gear as well.

New players can’t immediately enjoy the transmog feature, but that’s part of the fun of the game setup. To access this feature, you’ll need to reach level 9, which requires many hours of gameplay, nearing the end of God of War Ragnarok.

That’s all that there is on the transmog feature in God of War for now. As the game adds more to it, I’ll be the ones to inform you and thoroughly explain it to you!


Well, now you will be able to enjoy Godly stats while looking as glorious and deadly as ever. Keep connected to read more guides and know-how on God of War and other games. Share with your fellow gamers and friends. I will see you in the next one!
