The area damage effect of the Storm Hammer.

The Storm Hammer is a Melee weapon introduced in the 10.0.0 update.

Appearance

It has a big silver head with a lightning symbol in the middle, as well as a blue and black stripped handle with a golden bottom. When it swings, the hand opens up and shoots out lightning in a ring pattern.

Strategy

It has extremely high damage, decent attack speed, and high mobility.

Tips

  • Use this to mow down heavily armored players due to its high damage.
  • If there's an enemy player close to you, use it as distraction because this will cause players to stay out of its blast radius, leaving time for an escape.
  • This can be used for spawn trapping enemies, or for camping uses.
  • The Storm Hammer cannot hit things behind it. Also, with the fact that the closer to the Storm Hammer the enemy is, the more damage it does, the user should keep this in mind to maximize their gameplay.

Counters

  • Stay out of range as its mobility along with its blast radius will near-instantly kill you, especially in the 10.4.0 update and higher as its radius was reduced at that time.
  • Using a Dark Matter Generator is effective if the user is coming at you on a platform/bridge, as you can cover the entire width of the bridge/platform and knock them off.
  • Use a weapon with knockback to stop the player catching up with you. A good choice for this is the Mines Launcher due to its fast firing rate and its ammo, which are effectively mini traps that last 1.5 seconds.
  • If possible stay under the player, as the Storm Hammer can't hit targets below it.
  • If stuck in a melee fight wait for the person to shoot the lightning, then charge through them and attack from behind. The Storm Hammer has trouble hitting things behind it.
  • Its users can't hit any enemies high up in the air. Therefore, the Jetpack or Rocket Jump can solve the problems they cause, but you need to avoid some unsuspected surprises, like how they will attempt to shoot you with projectile weapons.
  • Strategic area damage strikes can easily take out its users.
  • The Demoman easily destroys Storm Hammer users if you use enough mines and lure them in close spaces where most players are easily convinced to use their melee weapon.
  • It is recommended to jump and run with a melee weapon then use the Big Buddy Up2 to shoot at that user.

Trivia

  • This weapon is probably based off of Mjölnir, the hammer of Thor, as it has a lightning symbol on it and is mainly blue in color.
  • The Fire Orb, Santa Sword, and the Storm Hammer are the only melee weapons to have area damage.
  • It is the most expensive coin currency weapon not only in the entire Melee section, but it is the most expensive coin currency weapon in the entire game, as its cost is 700Coin.
  • The weapon had revived some nerfs since its release.
    • Its lethality was reduced to 27 and attack to 84 in the 10.0.7 update.
    • Its speed and attack speed were reduced from 130 to 120 and from 85 to 82 respectively with 10.1.0 update.
    • Its lethality was further reduced to 24 in the 10.2.4 update.
    • Its radius was reduced in the 10.4.0 update.
  • It's the first melee weapon with Area Damage.
  • This weapon is unlocked at level 27 along with the Secret Forces Rifle, Dual Hawks, Sunrise and "Bastion".
  • Because it is OP, sometimes players call it the Spammer Hammer or Hammer Spammer.
