Titan Close Combat Weapon (aka Titan CCW or TCCW) is the generic name given to the oversized and extremely deadly close quarters combat weapons fitted to some titan-class vehicles and Knights.[1a] Several races are known to fit such weapons to their titans, including the Imperium[1b], Eldar[2] and Orks.[1c]

Titan Close Combat Weapon Types

For vehicles as large as titans "close combat" is a relative term, essentially starting once the enemy has gotten within the vehicle's defensive shield perimeter. Accordingly, titan close combat weapons are often large enough to mount additional secondary ranged weapon systems, as in the case of the Eldar Phantom Titan Power Fist[2] or are themselves extremely short-ranged energy weapons of surpassing power, such as the Imperial Laser Burner.[3] Most typically, however, titan close combat weapons resemble standard close combat weapons used by the infantry of the race that built the titan, but on a stupendous scale and utilising essentially the same technologies.

The very sound of this chainsword has been known to cause enemies to flee.[7]

The Thunderstrike Gauntlet is a smaller type of Titan power fist carried by Imperial Knights. Crackling with destructive energies, the Thunderstrike Gauntlet allows the Knight to rip apart its enemy, even tearing limbs off of Titans. When used as a bludgeon instrument the gauntlet releases a deafening thunderclap upon impact, so powerful it is capable of hurling Battle Tanks through the air to land amongst the enemy and crush them beneath the vehicle's weight.[7]
