— Charred Council to War
An immensely powerful blade that the Red Horseman carries into every battle for judgment in the never-ending war between the kingdoms of Heaven and Hell, Chaoseater is the first weapon one acquires in the game. During the Endwar, like its master, Chaoseater was stripped of its former strength and power, followed by what may have been 100 years of imprisonment by The Charred Council. At the beginning of War's journey following the events of the Apocalypse, the sword is released from an underground, fiery prison to be wielded by War once again.
Chaoseater has the ability to absorb Chaos energy from defeated enemies, hence the name. This energy is used to unleash War's powerful Chaos Form. It could be assumed that the true form of Chaoseater is the form it takes while War is in his Chaos Form, taking on great size and power in the shape of a flame-engulfed sword.
The sword can also be augmented with Enhancements to raise its destructive power to higher levels. Different Enhancements have different visual effects on the facial engravings, from flame engulfing Hellfire to bloody Carnage.

- Artwork from the game -as well as the intro screen- seem to show Chaoseater in silhouette without the holes and cracks visible in the latter game and the ring in the hilt is whole. This seems to indicate that the marks on Chaoseater are battle scars.
- The chaoseater bears a close resemblance to the Chaos Fang, as stated in-game.
