A sledgehammer is a heavy, two-handed, blunt melee weapon.

Usage

Weapon

The sledgehammer has one of the highest average and maximum damage of all weapons, but has a very slow attack speed. The sledgehammer is one of the few weapons that can hit 3 zombies at once (with multi-hit enabled), for comparison, a baseball bat can only hit 2 zombies at once. It is heavy, must be equipped in two hands, and will quickly exhaust the user, and cannot be used once the character is exhausted.

Breaking doors

The sledgehammer is very effective at breaking doors, dealing 40 damage to them, compared to an axe dealing 35 damage. Alternatively, the destroy function can be used to destroy doors instantly.

Chopping trees

The sledgehammer is better at chopping down trees than most melee weapons, dealing 10 damage, but still not as effective as the axe which deals 35 damage.

Destruction of tiles

Destroying tiles, such as walls, doors, and other miscellaneous objects, is a function exclusive to the sledgehammer. To destroy tiles, click "Destroy" on the RMB contextual menu while having the sledgehammer equipped. A red box will appear, highlighting the tile to destroy.

Condition

The sledgehammer has a maximum condition of 10. Its rate of degradation is influenced by the long blunt and maintenance skills. The chance of losing durability can be simplified to the following formula: 1 in (40 + maintenanceMod × 2). Where "maintenanceMod" is calculated using the long blunt and maintenance skills.

Below is an example of the chance of losing durability at varying levels of the maintenance and long blunt skills.

For how this is calculated, see: Durability
Maintenance skill Weapon skill Durability lower chance
0 0 1/40 (3%)
0 4 1/42 (2%)
0 8 1/44 (2%)
4 0 1/44 (2%)
8 0 1/48 (2%)
4 4 1/46 (2%)
4 8 1/48 (2%)
8 8 1/52 (2%)
10 10 1/54 (2%)

Repairing

It should be noted that repairing the sledgehammer makes following repairs less likely to succeed and can, if repaired numerous times, cause reduced durability instead of increased.
