The "God of War" series has been a smashing success for PlayStation brand consoles. The games feature epic mythological themes and intense violence, while mixing in puzzle and strategy elements. The weapons, as well, have mythical vibes to go with their extraordinary powers and abilities. The game gives you a variety of weapons and a quick and easy way to cycle between them. The only catch is it you don't get the opportunity to do it until you've played the game for a few hours.

Play the game until you unlock a second weapon. This can take up to five hours.

Press "Start" to pause the game.

Press 'O" to cycle between weapons. The weapon you pick will now be your secondary weapon.

Press down on the d-pad to switch from your main weapon to the one you just chose.

Press down again to switch back to your primary weapon.
