Power claws can sometimes be purchased from traders. They can then be installed onto a colonist as replacements for their fists. A power claw can only be installed on a natural arm. If a power claw is installed on an arm which gets replaced with an artificial arm, the claw will be removed and boxed for reuse. A power claw deals 15 damage compared to 5 damage from a fist. It reduces an arm's efficiency to 92%, slightly reducing manipulation.
When meleeing a target, a colonist with no weapon often switches hands to attack. This means that a colonist with one power claw and one normal fist is less effective than having two claws. A colonist equipped with one or more claws should not wield a melee weapon because they will use the weapon instead of their claws.
