Similar to other party members outside of Peach and Mario, Bowser has two best weapons, one in the main game, and one as a post-game reward. The former is called Drill Claw, while the latter is called Wonder Chomp. You’ll find the Drill Claw in the Six-Door Challenge room in , whereas you’ll obtain the Wonder Chomp as a reward for defeating in a rematch during post-game. Read on to find out the exact location of these ultimate weapons.
Drill Claw Location
Shortly after entering Keep, you’ll get to a room with six red doors. Each of these doors provides a challenge, and one will contain the Drill Claw. Unfortunately, because each door is random, it’s impossible to tell you the “correct” door, but thankfully, the challenge that rewards the weapon will be the same. The Drill Claw resides in the Battle Course One challenge, where you’ll fight twelve grueling battles before you get to the room containing the weapon. To know if you’re in the right challenge, the first battle will be against five Pro which you’ll find when you reach the first set of statues.
