Bear trap fist
The bear trap fist is an Unarmed weapon, worn much like a power fist. The jaws of the trap are folded back past the normal open position, exposing the pressure plate. When a punch connects, the pressure plate makes contact with the target causing the trap to snap shut. This weapon does bonus damage to an opponent's limbs. Strangely, the bear trap resets itself with no aid from the wearer.
