The Storm Hammer is a Melee weapon introduced in the 10.0.0 update.
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 top opens up and shoots out white lightning in a ring pattern surronding the user.
It has high damage, relatively slow attack speed, and decent mobility.
- Use this to mow down heavily armored players due to its high damage.
- 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 damage output.
- It has a 2 shot kill, and along with area damage, it is ideal for compact areas.
- This weapon is powerful when combined with Stealth Bracelet, as the user can utilize invisibility to slaughter enemies. Coming from above has a similar effect although it requires timing.
- It is possible to get many killstreaks with this weapon.
- Use this in Knife Party, because many other players may use non-area damage Melee weapons, where you have the upper hand against them.
- In melee versus melee combat in a choke point, it is recommended to move forward while in the swinging animation and move back while the lightning is coming out. This allows for multiple enemies to be hit and you can't be chased as there is a high chance someone was behind you and could be finished off.
- In 1v1s, stay extremely close to your enemy so full damage will be dealt. Try to avoid their line of sight, be advised against certain weapons, this tactic won't work (like the Ghost Lantern), where it is best just to switch to a longer-ranged weapon.
- Pick off its users from long ranges, and if they spot you, kill them as fast as you could.
- Use a weapon with slowness to stop the user catching up or escaping.
- 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.
- It cannot kill you in a single hit, if you are far enough.
- It is recommended to jump and run with a melee weapon (with wear that boosts your jump height and/or melee movement speed) then use the Big Buddy Up2 to shoot at the user.
- This also applies to other weapons that deals lethal damage, like the Ghost Lantern.
- When in Knife Party, use other lethal/long ranged melees, such as the Combat Yo-Yo.

or obtained from the Lucky Chest.
Modeled after Thor's hammer from Marvel superheroes.
Have a weapon with a longer range if engaged in long ranged combat. It is also Electric Themed.
- 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.
- Sharing a very similar color scheme to the Zeus Chain-Sword it might indicate that lorewise the storm hammer is actually Greek as the chain sword has Zeus in the name and the Storm Hammer only has storm.
- It was the most expensive coin currency weapon not only in the Melee section, but the most expensive coin currency weapon in the entire game as its cost used to be 700. Some considered its extravagant price to be worthy, as this is one of the most powerful melee weapons in the game but it was ultimately changed to a 255 price tag after the 12.5.0 update.
- 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 was 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".
- Due to its infamous nature of being a high damage-area damage weapon, it has been dubbed the 'Spammer Hammer' or 'Hammer Spammer' and is spammed commonly by players.
- This weapon used to be graded Legendary, but after an unknown update the grade was nerfed to Epic.
- So far, this is the most used melee weapon in the game.
