The weapon's long description reads as follows: "Perfect for initiating a duel."
The Gauntlet's standard hits have a base power of 3.375 and a 0.3-second delay before another punch can be thrown.
If a Gauntlet is wielded with a second fist weapon, a three-step combo and the Uppercut finisher become available to use. To advance through the combo, each punch must be followed within 0.5 seconds by another punch with the same hand. Once the combo is completed, the last punch of the combo must be followed within 0.5 seconds by another punch with the same hand to perform the finisher associated with the opposite hand's fist weapon. Alternating hands (alternating left mouse and right mouse) will not cause a finisher to occur thus allowing a player to pummel enemies with regular attacks and execute a finisher when they wish.
The finisher, Uppercut, knocks enemies away and causes the user to rise into the air. It has a base power of 9, and performing it incurs a 0.2-second delay before another punch can be thrown with either hand.
When upgraded at a Weapon Upgrade Anvil to tier 6, standard hit damage increases to 7.875, and Uppercut's damage increases to 21. Additionally, the Gauntlet's appearance changes to the one shown below.
Apart from the addition of a gold star to the name, no other changes occur as a result of the upgrade.
