The God of War mod scene is still in its infancy, the phase where most of the mods you see are completely practical and sensible. If you want invisible armor or blue tattoos, you’re in luck. However, if you want something a little more extravagant, there’s a mod that turns Kratos’ signature ax into a stick and nothing else, unless you’ve been following Marcos RC. The prolific modder is responsible for dozens of wacky creations, including the Barney mod in Resident Evil Village and a mod that replaces Mr X with Anya Forger from Spy x Family in Resident Evil 2.
More recently, they’ve been tweaking God of War, with everything from Kratos wearing skintight beach trunks to replacing him with Ricardo Milos. This mod, which TechRadar found first, makes Kratos the Halo Master Chief and replaces Baldur with Doom’s Doom Guy.
The result is surprisingly intense for what is intended to be a joke. For one thing, you get to see Chief in the third person, something we rarely see outside of cutscenes in actual Halo games. Also, seeing him deal with Doom Guy on top of Atreus as he falls through the air, breaks some rocks and rolls in the snow before getting up and walking away with his head hanging from his futuristic belt is, frankly, just great.
They also have a second version of the mod that replaces Baldur with Chief and leaves Kratos alone, getting beaten up by Master Chief before causing him some pain. It’s console wars come to life, only they’re actually fun and worthwhile.
However, if you think it’s worth it too, you’ll have to try it out with your wallet. Marcos RC only made these mods available to his Pateron backers. Backing them up costs $6, so keep that in mind.
Elsewhere in Doom developments, you can now play Doom in Doom and Doom Guy (John Romero) himself is creating a new FPS game in Unreal Engine 5.
