Notes Edit

Grapple Fist can be used to grapple onto enemies, terrain, M551 Pylon as well as other player characters. Both Knuckleboom, M551 Pylon and Charged Gauntlet can be used while Grapple fist is active.

If Grapple Fist is used on something not higher than the user, the user will move at sprinting speed toward the grapple point.


The Spiked Fist loadout pulls all enemies except Bosses, Stone Golems, Bighorn Bisons, Clay Templars, Greater Wisps, Beetle Guards, and Elder Lumerians. Brass Contrapitons are pulled to you. You can still grapple the M551 Pylon and use as an anchor point.

The distance that Charged Gauntlet travels increases as it charges, same as the damage. Charged Gauntlet can be held indefinitely, and you can sprint while charging it. Charged Gauntlet can be charged and cast, while Grapple Fist is active. Combine these for deadly efficiency.

M551 Pylon can be aimed when thrown, aim up to throw higher or down to throw lower, it will be thrown in the direction you are looking.

M551 Pylon is an effective means of taking care of lesser wisps, and other smaller mobs in large groups.
