The Hammer is a pistol from Korolev logo colored.pngKorolev. Its slow firerate and high weakspot multiplier lends it to a precision playstyle, in which each shot is devastating.


The Hammer can have 5 different Attachments installed on it, one for each slot. The type of attachment must be compatible with the weapon's type, so only attachments that have Pistol or Light Ammo as a category can be installed onto a Hammer.


A heavy pistol that can inflict devastating damage, at the cost of any kind of subtlety.


Based on their ubiquitous rivet guns, also known as 'energy hammers', the 'Hammer' was an attempt at developing a low cost personal defense weapon. Popular among those wanting a dependable high-powered pistol, its weight and complex operation make it unattractive to the mass market.

The Prototype version of the Hammer can be bought in the Korolev logo colored.pngKorolev shop on Prospect Station after reaching factionlevel 10, 8 Levels earlier than the normal version.
