Hammers, also known as warhammers or bludgeons after the names of most hammer types, are a type of weapon. These weapons are sometimes used by NPCs in combat.
Hammers deal 2 more then their equipment set's base damage, have the same durability as their corresponding swords, and will do greater knockback. However, the player cannot block while wielding a hammer. All warhammers (including the blacksmith hammer) have speed of 65%, reach of 100% and knockback of +1.
Most hammers are crafted with three sticks and four ingots. The type of ingot and type of crafting table required depends on the hammer. Usually, these will correspond with the faction that wields the hammer. For example, in the recipes below, a Dwarven warhammer requires Dwarven steel ingots on a Dwarven crafting table, while an Orc warhammer requires Orc steel ingots on a Morgul crafting table. The list in the section below denotes the required ingots and crafting table for each type of hammer.

Fighting with hammers
The knockback of hammers makes them usually better than swords. You can knock back enemies before they reach you and you can defend against multiple enemies more easily. Try to fight on the higher position to be able to knock the enemy down so that he gets falling damage. They also have very high damage.
However, the knockback is not good if you fight against ranged troops, because it lets them get away from you so that they can shoot again. Keep another weapon in your hotbar and use that one instead against ranged troops.
Fighting against hammers
If your enemies have hammers, use ranged weapons or fight with a wall in your back that can stop you from being knocked back.
