The impact hammer is a weapon found in Dead Rising 2: Case West.

It is a strong, but slow weapon, that can be used on a single enemy or smashed against the floor to stun or kill surrounding enemies. This weapon is first seen held by Hazard Units after Case 2-2: Infiltration. The game's only psychopath, Harjit Singh, uses two of them in the fight against the player. Despite its large, bulky size, it can actually be carried in your inventory. It can be combined with a Blast Frequency Gun to make the Impact Blaster.


  • Primary: Tap X to preform a horizontal strike, instantly killing the target zombie.
  • Secondary: Hold X to preform a vertical strike to the ground, killing any zombies caught in the blast radius.
  • Thrown: Hold the Ltrigger trigger to go into aim mode, then tap X to throw the impact hammer.



  • The name and look of the impact hammer may be a reference to the Impact Hammer found in the Unreal Tournament series.
