How to Get Chains of Hades in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2

There are three primary ways to claim the Chains of Hades:

1. Loot Themed Locations

Search chests and scattered loot around Greek-themed points of interest like The Underworld, Grim Gate, Mount Olympus, and Brawler’s Battlegrounds. These locations have a higher chance of spawning the Chains of Hades, similar to how the Zeus mythic was found earlier in the season.

2. Olympian and Underworld Chests

Keep an eye out for gleaming golden chests scattered throughout the map. These Olympian and Underworld Chests have a chance of containing the Chains of Hades, offering another avenue to acquire this powerful weapon.

3. Conquer the Underworld

For the ultimate test of skill, head to The Underworld and challenge Hades himself. Topple his imposing statue, eliminate his minions, and finally defeat Hades in an epic showdown. This method not only grants you the Chains of Hades but also his coveted Aspect of the Gods.
