Ever wanted to roleplay Levi Ackerman from Attack on Titan in a Monster Hunter-like game? Well! With Wild Hearts, you can fulfill your dream using the Claw Blade. If you are new to the game, the Claw Blade is a mid-range high-mobility weapon player can use in Wild Hearts to grapple onto Kemono and unleash a flurry of aerial attacks while performing aerial maneuvers.

Keep reading our guide as we explain the criteria you need to fulfill to unlock the Claw Blade while briefly talking about how you can use it and learn its movesets.

How do you unlock and use the Claw Blade?

You can unlock the Claw Blade by completing Chapter One, "Azuma, Land of the East." Once you do that, you can make your way to Natsume's shop in Minato and talk to her.

Choose the first option, "Have a weapon forged," to open the weapon crafting menu. Granted, you have the required materials; you can craft the Claw Blade.

Once the Claw Blade is crafted, you can equip it via the "Change Equipment" menu. After that, you can use it as any other weapon. To learn the Claw Blade movesets, we recommend you find a dummy bear and start training.

The training will teach you every move you can perform using the Claw Blade. That aside, if you are still in Chapter 1, here are the different Kemono you must hunt down as a part of the main story to reach Chapter 2 and get access to the Claw Blade:
