Nikolai's guns Wait a second let me finish polishing my guns

You possess superhuman unarmed combat ability.
Used by Nickolai Borisovich Tarasov, Created by therustyy257.

Nikolai's arms are solid metal. Kind of like Jax from MK, but with nice pattern engravings. He wears a turtleneck and leather gloves to hide his massive guns.He seems to have no feeling in his arms, no pain or tactile sensation. Due to this he has trouble controlling his own strength.The arms seem virtually indestructible, made out of some kind of unknown alloy, light enough for him to operate as if they were normal arms, but also super dense.They do however emit slight biological signatures.
