The hammer is a two-handed weapon that can be crafted by weaponsmiths. Hammers always grant a wide variety of control skills and are usable by all the soldier professions, along with the Scrapper, and are melee weapons with the exception of the Revenant that uses them as a long range weapon. The maximum damage range for hammers is 1,034 - 1,166.
