The claws of Olympus

Claws of Olympus

These deadly claws fused to the King of the Underworld's most prized gauntlets can strip a warrior's soul as the life drains from his body.

–Ingame description

The Claws of Olympus is a weapon in God of War: Ascension multiplayer available only to warriors who sworn an oath to Hades. The weapon can be unlocked by using 3 Ascension Tokens on it in the weapons menu.


A powerful, life stealing gauntlet capable of controlling a large area of space.

–Ingame description

The Claws of Olympus appear as huge gauntlets, resembling the Helm of Hades, with bright tanzanite purple light shining from them. A pair of long claws, which are possibly the Claws of Hades themselves, are chained to the gauntlets and are used for long range combat.

Like the Claws of Hades, they use the power of undead souls to decimate enemies and steal their life energy. This leaves their victims severely weakened while the wielder regains any lost health and is healed from his/her wounds that they suffered in battle.
