Dracula's Chaos Claws allow the anti-hero to smash through enemies' armor and shields, as demonstrated in a Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 trailer released today, opening opponents up to normal attacks.
The Chaos Claws are flamed gauntlets which are primarily used to break down enemies defenses, leaving them prime for attack with the Void Sword.
Dracula's Void Sword makes a return in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 after first appearing in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate. While it replenishes Dracula's health with each hit, the Void Sword is a mid-range weapon and can draw energy for ranged attacks. Combing it with different stones awards various abilities.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will launch in North America on PlayStation 3, Windows PC and Xbox 360 on Feb. 25.
