God of War Ragnarok

In God of War Ragnarok, you will use a currency called Hacksilver. As you progress in God of War you will need to collect Hacksilver to do different things like purchase new weapons or upgrade your current weapons. Let’s take a closer look at what Hacksilver is and how you can get it.

Hacksilver is the in-game currency used in God of War Ragnarok to purchase and upgrade weapons. You can find Hacksliver by searching dead bodies, in bags or treasure chests, or destroying breakable furniture. Completing Quests and doing favors or selling artifacts are also great ways for earning Hacksilver

What is Hack Silver?

Hacksliver is based on the currency used in Norse history. Hacksilver, also known as hacksilber, is made of small pieces of silver molded or bent together into different shapes and sizes. Their value was measured according to their weight and the quality of their craftsmanship. 

The Vikings and Norseman used to use precious metals like gold or silver when trading or battering. But when they started trading internationally the need for a coin became evident. Thus they created the Hacksilver as their coin in place of trading.

What can you do with it?

Hacksilver is mainly used to finance the upgrading and purchasing of new weapons and equipment in God of War Ragnarok. As you develop through the storyline you will find that you are faced with stronger, tougher opponents.

To defeat them you have to ensure that Kratos and Atreus are getting stronger as well. You do this by upgrading their armor, weapons, and special abilities. Most of the time, this costs hacksilver to do so. 

Each upgrade is going to cost more hacksilver than before so always prioritize building a good savings pocket so that you are able to proceed with upgrades when you need them.

Where to find it?

Hacksilver is not very difficult to find. If your move through the map and explore make an effort to search for any dead bodies you come across. Often they have hacksilver on them. Keep an eye out for bags of hacksilver as well.

Look for chests and pots to break when you are exploring.

You can also find hacksilver in hidden chests and by breaking any breakable objects around you like tables, chairs, boxes, pots, and pans. You won’t physically see the coins but you will see them in a glowing bag.

How to earn Hacksilver.

Hacksilver can also be earned by completing quests and doing favors. When you complete a quest you receive an amount of hacksilver for it. Remember to also look for hacksilver while you are on the quest. 

Favors are a great way to earn more hacksilver. Often you will be given hacksilver for doing small favors for NPCs. Never pass up an opportunity to do a favor or take on a side quest. The extra hacksilver is always needed.

Increasing your LCK stats are also a great way of earning more hacksilver. The simplest way of increasing your LCK stats is by equipping yourself with gear that increases your stats. Do this before you go into the open world and you will find loads more.

Selling Artificants can bring in a sufficient amount of hacksilver too. Artifacts are items you find throughout the game that haven’t got many uses other than for selling. To sell an artifact you can go to the blacksmith and he will give you an offer for the artifact. 

Fight in the Muspelheim. The Muspelheim is a realm that you need to unlock by finding two seed pieces. Once you have unlocked it you can fight in various combat challenges. If you win you will earn a decent amount of hacksilver.

How to farm it.

There are some non-conventional ways of getting hacksilver. You don’t necessarily have to always complete challenges or find chests and always search for new items to break. You can earn more Hacksilver by using this hack.

Starting from a saved checkpoint, look for an area where you can find hacksilver. Break the pots and other breakable items. Once you have received the hacksilver go into the menu and restart at the checkpoint. 

You will find that your hacksilver amount has stayed the same but all the items you broke have been replaced. Do this a few times and you will find that it’s an easy way to build your hacksilver wallet.

Here’s a video demonstrating how to do this.

Hacksilver is a real currency that is now being used as the main currency in God of War Ragnarok. You use it primarily to upgrade and purchase new equipment. Hacksilver can be found all over the map by breaking items, searching corpses, doing favors, and completing quests. We hope this guide to hacksilver was helpful.
