Remember those debates with your friends over who would win in a fight between God of War’s Kratos and Halo’s Master Chief? Well, now you can see the two video game titans duke it out thanks to a PC mod for God of War 2018.
The mod was originally created by Marcos RC, and the footage takes the first boss fight from the game, replacing The Stranger with Chief himself. You can check out a snippet of the brawl below, or watch the entire thing play out on Marcos RC’s YouTube page.

Due to the nature of the original boss fight, Chief doesn’t rely on any of his iconic weapons, instead opting for hand-to-hand combat. So, I guess the jury’s still out on who would win if both characters were fully equipped.
Modders have been creating all sorts of wild God of War mods since the game launched on PC earlier this year. If you want to see a much more comical brawl, check out how one modder replaced Kratos and The Stranger with Homer Simpson and Ned Flanders from The Simpsons.
Kratos fans are anxiously awaiting God of War: Ragnarok, the follow-up title to 2018’s God of War. Ragnarok recently received a rating in South Korea, suggesting the game is set to hit its 2022 release target. There are certainly high expectations for the game, as we awarded its predecessor a 10/10 and our 2018 Game of the Year award. God of War 2018 even came out on top in IGN’s best video game of all time fan bracket.
