A video showing the Sledgehammer weapon type and some of its abilities.
Sledgehammers are melee weapons that can be dual wielded, allowing for double damage and double Weapon Mods. While not overly powerful, their ability to be dual wielded and their versatile Competency sets can allow many benefits for a Sledgehammer user.
Competencies shown in the video include:
Expert Craftsman - Not a Sledgehammer-specific ability, but learned through the Sledgehammer skill tree. Drones survive attacks with 1 HP if they had 2 or more HP before taking damage. Hammer Storm - Single use Sledgehammer attack that deals 4x damage. Thor Animus - Sledgehammer ability that doubles damage, healing power, Fire damage and move rate for one minute. Hammer Arts - Sledgehammers use and boost the Unarmed Combo Modifier, but only boosts the Combo Modifier by half the character's rate. Blunt Trauma - Sledgehammer attacks do triple damage if the enemy is stunned. Rocket Launcher to Sledgehammer Juggle Full Rocket - "Juggling" weapons from Rocket Launcher to Sledgehammer(s) will cause the next Sledgehammer attack to completely refill rocket ammo.
