Power claw

Power claw

A combat-oriented hand replacement consisting of a mechanical hand with a hooked claw on each finger. It cuts deep, and it is strong enough to crush a skull like a hand crushes an egg. The claws can be retracted, making it as useful as a natural hand for non-combat tasks, however its overall ungainlyness[sic] slows down movement slightly.

Power claws are powerful bionic hand replacements. A power claw can only be installed on a natural arm. If a power claw is installed on an arm which then gets replaced with an artificial arm, the claw will be removed and boxed for reuse. A power claw deals 22 damage compared to 8 damage from a fist and slows movement by 8%.

Acquisition

In the basegame, power claws cannot be crafted and must be bought, given as a quest reward or found in item stashes.

With the Royalty DLC, power claws can be made at the Machining table if Specialized Limbs, which requires a techprint, is researched. Crafting the claw requires Steel 40 steel and Component 8 components. They require a crafting skill of 5.

Analysis

The power claw makes a good hand replacement for a colonist using both melee and ranged combat, as the claws work as good melee weapons allowing colonists to hold off melee attackers effectively.

When social fighting, colonists will not use the power claw to attack their opponent.
