"A robust, multi-purpose hammer with wooden handle and curved claw, this old classic still nails the competition."
―GTA V description on the Rockstar Games Social Club.

The Hammer is a melee weapon featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and, as part of the Special and Collector's Editions, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

The Hammer was removed from Grand Theft Auto IV while it was in development; it can be still seen a few times in the game in the hands of construction workers and inside a few buildings, but it cannot be used. [citation/verification needed]

Design

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

"All steel construction, full polish tool with head and handle forged in one piece."
―GTA Vice City Website

The Hammer in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City has a red/black handle with a grey head.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Hammer reappears in Grand Theft Auto V with a wooden handle and a black head. Aside from these details, the Hammer remains identical to the 3D Universe iteration.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

The Hammer has a short range but deals a good amount of damage, causing the person being attacked to collapse.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Hammer is fairly powerful, being comparable to the Crowbar, but it can be swung much faster and the longer range allows the player (if timed right) to hit a sprinting person, which makes it useful in a number of scenarios. If swung from the correct range, the Hammer may connect with the victim's face, knocking them out instantly or even killing them. It is also capable of denting and removing parts of vehicles, and, if swung enough times, has the ability to damage a vehicle to the point of it igniting.
