Darksiders Wiki

Enhancements are augmentations that are available in both Darksiders and Darksiders III. They can be slotted into the majority of weapons in both games, and grant additional abilities and effects. These effects range from both passive and active effects, but they must be equipped to provide any of their benefits to War or Fury.


Once an enhancement has been gained, it is kept permanently in the inventory and can be attached onto a weapon at any time as well as changed. Each weapon has only one enhancement slot. An enhancement may have a slotted bonus which only has an effect when the slotted weapon is in use. Some enhancements have passive bonus which is in effect all the time - as soon as you pick up the enhancement. While some enhancements are bought, others are found around the Darksiders world.

In Darksiders III enhancements can be upgraded by Ulthane.

Main article: Legendary Enhancement

There are four Legendary Enhancements which are significantly more powerful and harder to find.

  1. War's Glory
  2. Strife's Offering
  3. Fury's Embrace
  4. Death's Blessing

Darksiders III[]

Main article: Darksiders III

There are a total of 18 enhancements available in Darksiders III, 6 of which are found in The Crucible and Keepers of the Void DLCs. They can be slotted into all of Fury's weapons, including the many forms of Scorn and her Crossblade Salvation.

Each enhancement provides an active effect to the slotted weapon along side a passive effect. The passive effect is always applied so long as it is equipped. This applies to Hollows and Hollow weapons Fury isn't attuned to, and also in Armageddon mode when the Crossblade or certain Hollows have not been obtained yet.

The enhancements can be upgraded by Ulthane using either Angelic and Demonic Artifacts found in the world, both of which provide a boost to one of the two effects. The final upgrade requires an Essence of a Chosen, as well as the opposite type of artifact, and brings both effects to their maximum power. More information about upgrade costs and the stat values of each enhancement can be found on their specific pages.
