Amazon Game Studios has just dropped more information about war hammers in New World in a new Twitter thread. Last week, we got a glimpse of some of the war hammers available in the upcoming 17th century survival MMORPG. This time around, we take a closer look at the pros and cons of wielding these massive harbingers of destruction.

According to the thread, hammers have the highest melee damage in the game and are good for countering blocking enemies and wiping out mobs. The downside is that they’re also the slowest melee weapons which makes hammer-wielders extremely vulnerable to more agile enemies. Hammers also require two hands to wield which means that you won’t be able to equip a shield and will have less protection from ranged attacks.

Personally, I prefer dual wield daggers or swords, or picking off enemies from afar with ranged weapons like a bow. What’s your weapon of choice? Let us know in the comments section below.
