Finding the War Hammer in New World is fairly simple, but every player will want to have one in their arsenal for the versatility of owning it. Although the weapons in New World largely come down to personal preference, there's no harm in having one of each just in case a moment arrives in which your weapon of choice doesn't quite cut it. Here's how to find a War Hammer.

How to Find the War Hammer in New World

The War Hammer is the classic tank weapon, dealing impressive damage in slow, heavy strikes. Its damage scales with Strength, and it uses two skill trees: Juggernaut and Crowd Crusher. They also benefit from a long melee range, can use sweeping or area of effect attacks, and can counter blocking enemies.

On the other hand, War Hammers are the slowest melee weapon class, and require dual-wielding — shields are out of the question.

To get a War Hammer of your own, you'll need to run through the first few quests in the game. There's a high chance you'll stumble across one in that process, but if you don't, you can craft one using iron once you make it to the first settlement.
