Gauntlets of Ares

The guantlets of Ares

Burned of their flesh in the fires of war, these skull tipped gauntlets will pound an enemy into submission.

–Ingame description

The Gauntlets of Ares are DLC Multiplayer weapons only available to players with alignment to Ares since the 1.10 patch.


A versatile weapon with long range attacks that is good at initiating combat.

–In-game description.

The gauntlets consist of skulls that had their flesh burned, as stated in the first description, which have been put together with red iron structures.

They are strong weapons that channel Ares' fiery powers mainly through powerful and wide ground pounds. As mentioned above, due to the long range of their attacks and the speed they're performed, they are a good choice when starting a battle, even when there's more than one enemy in the area. Use the unblockable attacks of these gauntlets to crush the skulls of anyone who dares to stand in your path.
