The Zeushammer is a DLC melee weapon that emits an EMP upon hitting a target.


Zeushammers can be purchased from any combat supplier or war merchant or obtained as a quest reward, once you have the Royalty DLC active.

Linked Zeushammers

It is also possible to obtain "linked" versions of Zeushammers, These linked variants boast a significantly higher DPS and slightly higher AP and can only be used by a single pawn.

Linked Zeushammers have randomized names akin to Legendary items from Dwarf Fortress.


The Zeushammer's EMP blast upon hitting a target makes it one of the better melee weapons to fight mechanoids with, however it still falls short of the monosword's sheer damage output and armor penetration.
