The Sledgehammer is an improvised weapon, but not a pushover like the plunger. In fact, it is one of the most damaging melee weapons in the game to date. Wielding the Sledgehammer lowers attack speed by 25 percent.

Spawn Locations[edit | edit source]

Sledgehammers are usually found in garages in suburban houses.

Barricading[edit | edit source]

Sledgehammers have added value as a tool for barricading. They can be used to drive any length of board into the ground to provide a foundation for further construction, by pressing the left mouse button. This can be undone using the right mouse button.
