The Deathclaw Gauntlet is a craftable Unarmed weapon in Fallout 3.



This weapon is the strongest weapon in the game for Unarmed specialists, though the Steel Knuckles or Plunkett's Valid Points have far lower AP costs and are better for activating Paralyzing Palm.

Attacks with the gauntlet disregard damage resistance from armor. Thus, while it appears to be equal in damage to the Power Fist, it is actually far superior against armored foes due to its armor piercing ability and x5 critical percent multiplier. This means that it can tear Tesla-Armored Enclave Soldiers apart as easily as it can kill unprotected enemies.


The Deathclaw Gauntlet is made out of a Deathclaw's forearm, fist, and claws, a Medical Brace for extra structure, a Leather Belt to render the hand rigid (and as a handle for the user's hand), and Wonderglue to hold it all together.

Deathclaw Gauntlet Schematics are needed to build it.


  • An already crafted Deathclaw Gauntlet can be found on the body of John Bear, one of the Bear Brothers, after the second battle in the Arena of the The Pitt add-on.


  • Oddly enough, if you compare a Deathclaw Gauntlet with that of a Deathclaw's hand, the gauntlet appears to be much smaller.
  • Though an unarmed weapon, this weapon has the same quick-select symbol and makes the same sound as a melee weapon when equipped.
  • The Deathclaw Gauntlet weighs twice as much as all of the components used to craft it; Deathclaw Hand = 1 lb, Medical Brace = 2 lbs, Leather Belt = 1 lb, and Wonderglue = 1 lb, yet Deathclaw Gauntlet = 10 lbs.
  • A Deathclaw's left hand is used to craft this, however the end result fits onto the player's right hand instead.


Deathclaw Gauntlet appears only in Fallout 3.


  • The Deathclaw Gauntlet does not ignore damage resistance as of PC version 1.5.
