Description[]

"Few tactics are forbidden in the settlement of a grudge. Gotrek Gorgelder perhaps rode those limits hardest, with many a mean swing that left more than his victim's eyes watering."

- In-game description, Donglizrikkazen

Advantages[]

  • The Two-Handed Hammer has simple attack patterns that are easy to learn: Light Attacks have good damage and stagger values against single targets, even heavily armored ones, while Heavy Attacks are wide sweeps that can cleave through multiple enemies.
  • This weapon's Heavy Attack can cleave through armored enemies. This means that when dealing with a horde, a stray Stormvermin in the middle of a horde will not interrupt your attacks.

Disadvantages[]

  • The Two-Handed Hammer's anti-horde attack is slow, leaving room for enemies to get hits in against you in between attacks. You can mitigate this to some degree with good movement to create space between you and a horde, and by mixing in Push actions if they get too close.
  • This weapon will make you less mobile than other, lighter weapons. Compared to the Sword, for instance, the Two-Handed Hammer slows your movement more while blocking and while attacking, and your dodges will be shorter and you can chain fewer of them together. The movement slowdown while using this weapon's Light Attacks is especially severe.
