Tremor Gauntlet

The Tremor Gauntlet.

The Tremor Gauntlet is a multipurpose weapon that can be utilized as a means of attack, to destroy blue rock barriers or to hurl forward a large object currently being dragged.

This weapon can be interchanged with the Scythe by pushing down on the directional pad.


The Tremor Gauntlet is obtained in The Hollows and is required to defeat the Griever.

The Tremor Gauntlet actually does higher damage per hit than the Chaoseater, but this is offset by a slower swing speed and inability to chain long combos together with it, since it inherently knocks enemies away from you. It is very useful for controlling a fight, knocking back weaker enemies while you deal with stronger ones, and juggling groups of lesser enemies.


Whenever you use a charged attack, try to release it at the exact moment the eyes on the gauntlet flash to ensure dealing the maximum damage.
