With origins dating back to the simplest of hand tools, the one-handed hammer is a bludgeoning weapon often used by those lacking the strength to use heavier weapons in combat. Only the strongest fighters can successfully wield a two-handed hammer without problems. Tinkers are especially fond of using hammers as weapons, and are often seen taking them to battle.

According to Vetron's Guide to Weapons and Armour, the hammer has a "4" effectiveness rating, making a morning star or mace better choices for those wishing to deal out more damage.


Although two-handed hammers have been seen in the series since Ultima V, the single-handed hammer only exists in Ultima VII and Ultima VII Part Two.

The rock hammer seen in Savage Empire is a usable weapon as well as a tool for breaking apart large rocks, while the version in Ultima Underworld I and Ultima Underworld II serves only its utilitarian purpose.
