The Hammer is a hitscan projectile weapon variant used by the Brute class in Tribes: Ascend. It can be unlocked for 120 Gold or 14000 XP.

"Popular among smaller tribes with fewer resources, the hammer was modified to be more ammo efficient. Ironically, the phrase "dropping the hammer" refers to warriors who are cowardly in combat." In-Game Description


The Hammer deals more damage than the standard Automatic Shotgun, but has a smaller clip size. It fires 8 hitscan bullets that deal 60 damage at close range (total 480 if all hit). Like all shotguns this weapon is ineffective beyond close range due to damage falloff.
