First game

Heroes

Glitnir (Japanese: グリトニル Glitnir) is a weapon skill in the axe category which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes. It is a personal weapon of Gustav. It is currently unavailable for usage by players, owing to Gustav's status as an enemy-exclusive unit; however, its enhanced variation, Headsman Glitnir (Japanese: 死斧グリトニル Death axe Glitnir), is available for playable use as a personal weapon of Gustav's fallen variation.
