The Tek Gauntlets are a hands-slot armor piece from the Tek Armor set.


When wearing the Tek Gauntlets, the wearer can perform a super punch by holding Right-Click Rmb (PC) and releasing when you see a green crosshair on your target, which has a base damage of 40 and scales with the melee stat, this attack can damage multiple enemies if they are in close proximity. When targeting trees and rocks, the punch can also be used for harvesting. You can also use this with Tek Leggings to perform an attack from above.

If you equip your map/select a structure in your hotbar while boosting, you can cancel the punch. (Because the punch stops the boost,)This can be used to traverse great distances quickly and dart around obstacles while flying.

If you are fully encumbered, you can use the gauntlets to get into the air. Combined with the Tek Chestpiece and the Tek Leggings you can carry massive amounts of items across long distances.

To use with Shields Rmb must be held first and then Lmb is held


The Engram is unlocked by defeating Gamma  Megapithecus, Gamma  Manticore, Gamma  Rockwell,  Forest Titan, or Gamma  Crystal Wyvern Queen and must be unlocked in order to equip this item. Defeating the more difficult versions will also give the player the engram. You can also get higher quality versions (~1940 armour, ~1500 durability) of this item from The Mosa Proposal (Genesis: Part 1), however, they cannot be grinded by the  Industrial Grinder or  Tropeognathus.
