Hammers are a type of weapon in Dark Souls.

OverviewEdit

Hammers are an interesting group of weapons in that they mostly deal Strike Damage, along with two that deal Thrust. They share similar attack animations with Axes and Greataxes, and their general usage is similar too. While hammers have slightly inferior attack rating compared to their axe counterpart, the damage type they deal means they tend to deal higher damage to armored opponents.

These weapons are designed for single hit damage rather than a quick succession of hits. This means their attacks are often quite labored and slow. On the other hand, hammers stagger opponents with relative ease. The sheer force of the blows also makes them very effective against highly defensive opponents, because it will not take long to break their guard.

Successfully striking an opponent greatly reduces the ending lag of the blow, allowing the player to swing again relatively fast. Missing with a hammer will leave the player wide open though. The first strike is the most delicate, however, if it does connect, given the force of the blow and staggering power, it is almost always possible to follow it up with extra strikes, and potentially a stun-lock. Against turtling opponents, it is also possible to pound away at the shield with relative ease.
