A claw hammer is a tool primarily used for pounding nails into, or extracting nails from, some other object. Claw Hammers are generally associated with Woodworking.
|Damage:||Low to Moderate|
The barricade hammer, alternatively called Claw Hammer or Nail Hammer is a very common civilian tool. The hammer may be the oldest tool for which definite evidence exists (dating back to to 2,600,000 BCE).
The Barricade Hammer featured in NMRiH is used to barricade areas defined by the map designer. In order to do so, you require wooden boards and must be close to a door that is able to be barricaded in order to place a board. It will take a few seconds to effectively barricade a door at which point the only way of removing said board is to destroy it.
While being a useful tool, it can also deal damage and acts like many melee weapons. It has a fast rate of attack and while its swings maybe low in damage, taking anywhere from 4 or 5 hits to kill a Zombie, it's attack rate and low stamina cost mean it can still be an effective close range melee weapon.
The hammer cannot be used in conjunction with a maglite.
