Ripped from the War God's favorite pair of battering rams, these gauntlets brought down the Gates of Athens.

–Ingame description

Cestus of Ares

The Cestus of Ares are a pair of gauntlets unique for those aligned with Ares. These are DLC weapons and are available for $2,99 or $4,99 together with the Gauntlets of Ares in the PS Store. A weapon made for War, they are perfect for a fiery crowd control.


A powerhouse melee weapon with unblockable special attack.

–Ingame description

The Cestus of Ares have a look similar to the Gladiator Gauntlets with the front appearing as a battering ram. Made of the bronze battering rams of Ares, they resemble his madness for war. A simple design with only one purpose: a swift victory.
