The Hammer is a weapon that appears in Hotline Miami and Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number.

Hotline Miami[edit | edit source]

In the first game, it is an unlockable throwing weapon, that has its own unique execution animation. It won't disappear after being thrown, so it can be used repeatedly. Kills performed by throwing a hammer gives 2300 points and executions give more than 1000 points. That, coupled with the fact that this weapon can be thrown repeatedly, makes it great for early point farming.

The Hammer has a special execution where Jacket can pry off an enemy's jaw with it.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number[edit | edit source]

The Hotline Miami 2 version of the Hammer can be seen in the 'Wear Something Fancy' trailer and "Midnight Animal" Scene where it is used as a melee weapon rather than a throwing weapon. It shares the same swinging speed with the baseball bat and has a different execution to the one in the first game.

The Hammer is also available in the Level Editor, but can only be used by Martin Brown.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Hammer also appears as Jacket's Official Melee weapon in the Jacket Character Pack DLC for Payday 2.
  • There happens to be a glitch with most walls regarding the hammer. If you stand next to a wall and aim at it and throw the hammer, most of the time it will go through the wall.
