Wasteland 2Sledgehammer

Sledgehammers are double handed melee weapons and breaching equipment.


A sledgehammer is a large tool, used in destruction work, such as demolishing walls in remodeling a house. Sledgehammers generally come with handles from about a foot and a half to three feet in length. Heads can vary from two to six pounds for little jobs, to up to twenty for big jobs. Sledgehammers are a classic door-breaching tool, as they provide a large amount of impulse and distribute damage across a broader area than most hammers, making them ideal for bashing in doors.
