A sledgehammer is a melee weapon in Fallout 3.

CharacteristicsEdit

A sledgehammer is used in heavier working conditions, such as industrial areas or for breaking ground.

This is a powerful weapon for low to mid level players, however it has a relatively high weight. It has great reach, but a slow swinging speed. It can be found at some metro stations, and, understandably, industrial sites such as The Pitt.

DurabilityEdit

The sledgehammer can successfully strike about 500 times from full condition before breaking.

VariantsEdit

  • The Tenderizer - A more powerful version of the sledgehammer.
  • Fawkes' sledgehammer - A unique, non-playable version used by Fawkes with a marginally higher attack speed.
