The Twin Fists of Malphon are one of the Infernal Arms that can be unlocked for 8 Chthonic Keys.

Codex entry[edit | edit source]

Codex.png '...What is a weapon if not the extension of one's will to survive, to destroy? The ancient cyclopean forge-masters who created the Infernal Arms in accordance with the Fates' design must have understood this when they delivered the singular Twin Fists of Malphon in secret to the gods. Any other weapon must be held in hand, but Malphon bonds with its bearer utterly, engulfing them with primal strength and alacrity. It is said even the Olympians hesitated to embrace the Twin Fists, until Lady Demeter, her hands accustomed to tilling the land, stepped forward and accepted the gift. The Titans recoiled from Malphon's relentless attacks, overwhelmed by its fury, unable to defend against it as one might a spear or blade. The Titan Hyperion suffered the worst of it, his undying body pulverized to such an extent that even his legacy was destroyed.''

Fighting style[edit | edit source]

The primary attack of the Twin Fists is a set of low damage, but extremely fast, strikes that chain together in sets of five. The special is an uppercut that does more damage and hits twice. One unique feature of the Twin Fists is that there is a separate special attack that can be used as part of a dash, which only hits once but at a higher base damage. Additionally, it receives Dash-Strike damage bonuses as well as Special damage bonuses.

Aspects[edit | edit source]

The Twin Fists have 3 Aspects: Zagreus, Talos, and Demeter. Like all other weapons, each Aspect has 5 levels that can be unlocked by spending Titan Blood. An Aspect will not only change the appearance of the Twin Fists, but will also improve their attacks. The higher the level of the Aspect, the more effective its improvement is.
