|| For an overview of sledgehammers in Fallout games, see Sledgehammer.
The sledgehammer is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.
The weapon consists of a long wooden shaft and a metal hammer head.
It has a special Mauler attack that does 50% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 10 more action points, but also has a chance to knock down enemies (requires a Melee skill of 50).

- Note: Melee weapons do double normal damage in V.A.T.S.
It is possible to execute Mauler outside of V.A.T.S. (without the required Melee skill of 50 to perform the move) by initiating a power attack (hold attack button) while moving forward.
The sledgehammer can successfully strike about 745 times from full condition before breaking.
This weapon is affected by the Heavyweight perk.
