The Embrace of the Mantis King! is a unique weapon added with the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal.


It is a unique mantis gauntlet. It appears to have been made from a larger than average mantis claw, presumably the "mantis king" for which it is named. It differs from the mantis gauntlet, as this weapon's glove allows for a free thumb and unlike the smooth surface of the standard mantis gauntlets, it has spines running along the forearm guard. The claw itself appears to have a serrated edge as well.

This weapon is significantly more powerful than the standard mantis gauntlet, but attacks significantly slower as well due to extra size and weight. It also has extra range because of the gauntlet's size.
