Motorized saw claw weapon.

Originally a tool for cutting apart scrap metal or overgrown wildlife, this weapon blends convenience, efficiency, and callous brutality into a single package.

Sanctuary, Update 16.0 teaser site.

The Ripkas are chainsaw claws originally designed for cutting scrap metal and overgrown wildlife, but function well enough for close combat, with decent critical potential and a high ratio of Slash b Slash damage.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit



  • The Ripkas' Codex description used to be "Motorized saw fists" despite being classified as Claws. This was changed in an unknown update, although several years after the release of the weapon.
    • The Mod TT 20pxFour Riders stance (which features the Ripkas on its stance card, as it was released alongside the weapon) initially had a second variant that was equippable on Fists; this was promptly removed as a bug. It's possible the Ripkas were originally conceived as Fist weapons before being turned into Claws instead.
  • Strangely, the Ripkas require the Tenno-made Ankyros Ankyros to craft, rather than the Grineer-made Furax Furax.
  • While and shortly after attacking, the upper part of the Ripkas' blades will give off a flaming halo effect. The color of which is affected by the weapon's energy color.

  • The Ripkas, as seen in the U16 bundle.
