- "As Nikola Tesla said, 'Our virtues and our failings are inseparable'. If Tesla's failing was being homicidal maniac, this wrist-mounted electricity lance would have been his virtue."
- —In-game description.
The Emperor's Touch is a special power gauntlet appearing in Shadow Warrior 2.
A drop from miniboss Unit-64 Commodore in the third part of side mission Ninja'd Scrolls. Can be easy to miss, since miniboss encounter is not a specific requirement of the mission and might involve some aimless wondering or dedicated searching.
Has proprietary electric element mod that can NOT be removed.
Electricity arc emitted by this glove is not particularly far-reaching or well-aimed, but up close it`s a good crowd controller. As it`s electric in nature, trying to use it on electricity-resistant enemies is not the best idea. However, if the crowd is not predominantly resistant to electricity, it will still serve you well.
Unlike some of the other weapons with proprietary elemental mod, Emperor`s Touch can NOT be switched to another element. It`s always electrical. Plan your modding strategy accordingly.
- The name of the weapon is a likely nod to Warhammer 40K, given that the weapon itself greatly resembles power fist.
- It could also be reference to Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars series.
- If you press reload while having a full clip, Lo Wang will start to play with the pistons on top of the gauntlet, prompting rock music to play.
