God of War will offer upgrade mechanics that are slightly inspired from a standard RPG. You can upgrade you armor or accessories or you can upgrade your weapons. Both of these work in a different way than each other and the weapons upgrade are mostly related to the story events and boss fights.
If you haven’t played God of War and are sensitive to spoilers, this might reveal a secret weapon that you can find in the game. If you don’t care about spoiling the weapons, read this guide to find out how to reach the max upgrade level for your weapon.

Frozen Flames are used to upgrade your Leviathan Axe in God of War and as stated earlier, you will find them in story events or boss fights. Some of the semi-boss fights e.g Trolls or other form of might beasts will drop these Frozen Flames that you can pick up once you defeat them. They can be then used for upgrading from the Blacksmith to level up your Leviathan Axe, which unlocks new skills and improves its stats.
The final upgrade for Leviathan Axe is a little tricky and will require you to find the Chilling Mists of Niflheim. Once you are done with the game and have found it, you can buy the Frozen Flame for the last upgrade from the Blacksmith to get the max level for your Leviathan Axe.
How To Get Chilling Mists of Niflheim

Aside from the Frozen Flames, you can also get the last Chaos Flame to upgrade the Blades of Chaos to the max level.
How To Get Raging Inferno of Muspelheim
This item can be located in the realm of fire, Muspelheim.
