The Warhammer is a melee weapon introduced in the Royalty DLC that does a significant amount of blunt damage and has a long cooldown. As a blunt weapon, warhammer attacks don't cause bleeding (unless a body part gets destroyed), and generally fares better against armor when compared to sharp weapons.

Acquisition

Warhammers can be crafted at the fueled smithy or electric smithy once the smithing and long blades research has been completed; with 50 of any metallic or wooden material, and 18,000 ticks (5 mins) of work. As well as purchased from outlander and orbital combat suppliers, or from outlander and pirate raiders drops.

Analysis

Compared to the club the warhammer is significantly more expensive to produce and has a 30% longer cooldown period. The warhammer is best when made with uranium rather than plasteel; though slightly slower, the high damage multiplier will result in a higher damage output, and also better armor penetration.
