In-game description

Overview Edit

The Heavy hammer is a tool. It can be used to break down crates or open ice-fishing holes in fishing huts, but its main use is the crafting of items like arrowheads, improvised hatchets, and improvised knives, at the Furnace. It is the only tool that can do this and was introduced along with the first furnace found in the game.

Locating Edit

One can usually be found in the Desolation Point region inside Hibernia Processing, on the lower level, on one of the tool boards. The Heavy hammer will also appear in various, random locations on different play-throughs. It should be looked for wherever random tool spawns are located, particularly inside large tool box drawers.

One can also sometimes be found near the forge in Forlorn Muskeg.

Some particular observed locations include:

Harvesting Reclaimed Wood Edit

You can harvest reclaimed wood from furnitures you can't break down with bare hands. However it takes more time to break down and consume more calories than breaking down with a hatchet. Many players might find using hammers for breaking down furnitures favorable as hammers are easier to repair if one has Simple Tool or Quality Tool available.

Notes Edit

  • The shape of the hammer is similar to a real-world mini-sledge.

In real world metalworking, numerous different hammers (each with their own unique head shapes and weights) would be be used for different applications, but for all intents and purposes the picture suits as merely just a reference.
