|For an overview of sledgehammers in Fallout games, see Sledgehammer.|
The weapon consists of a long wooden shaft and a metal hammer head. It is a mid-tier melee weapon that deals respectable damage with a decent rate of attack. It will suffice until the high-tech super sledge becomes available.
Its special V.A.T.S. attack is "Mauler", which does 50% damage at the cost of 48 action points and has a chance to knock down enemies (requires a Melee skill of 50). Outside of V.A.T.S. this can be activated by running and holding down the attack button.
