The hammer has a short range but deals a good amount of damage, causing the person being attacked to collapse. The hammer can be purchased from any store that sells melee weapons for $20 and stolen from builders after they are killed.
The hammer was removed from GTA IV, although, it can be still seen a few times in the game, in the hands of construction workers. It can be also found inside a few buildings, but it can't be used.
Grand Theft Auto V
The hammer appears in GTA V as a free melee weapon at all Ammu-Nation shops for those who have purchased either the special or collectors edition of the game. It's power remains pretty much the same as it was in Vice City but the range is longer allowing the player (if timed right) to be able to hit a sprinting person which makes it useful is a number of scenarios.
