"Powerful chains to mangle and choke your enemies"

Chains in Shank

Chains are heavy weapons that are unlocked upon defeating Denny in the single player campaign. They inflict the heaviest damage to enemies and have a fast animation but very short reach. They are best used when the player encounter big or stunned enemies. Enemies being choked by chains can also be used as a human shield, shielding Shank from bullets fired by ranged enemies.
