Unarmed combat gets a damage bonus from 2handed. In heavy armor there is a perk that increases your damage by the armor value of the gauntlets you are wearing... On top of that, you could build off of the heavy tree to get multiple increases in armor value, which in turn increases you hand-to-hand damage.

All of these things could go into the lethality of unarmed. --- Brawl Code: 1032-0922-1772 Brawl Name: D RIP: Orlando of the Axe Karma: 1642 --he delivered!
A shame you have to be wearing heavy armor to do this. I was hoping for a monk with little to no armor.
You could just stick with the gauntlets. The damage bonus comes from them only. --- "Cid is badass. He's old and still crackin'. He can fight underwater with a lit cigarette in his mouth. He drinks the goddamn tea." -Gaming_Mastery
I thought the gauntlets perk was like the second one you can get in Heavy Armor..?
Anyway, this may be the first time I do an unarmed character. If it's not in the main game, I'm sure it's just a matter of time before someone makes a mod that lets you punch heads off. --- R.I.P LaManoNera 04-06-2009
