The Hammer is a melee weapon that can be found in Hitman: Blood Money, Hitman: Absolution, and HITMAN™.


Hitman: Blood Money

It is somewhat dangerous and takes about 1-3 hits to kill someone. It is semi-common throughout the game, and it is one of the first melee weapons seen in Hitman: Blood Money. Like most melee weapons in the game, it will be stained in blood if you hit someone with it.

It can be used for executions from behind, although it can be tough to pull off. 47 thrusts the blunt side of the hammer into the victim's skull.

Alternatively, it could be thrown to injure or kill someone. Unlike knives, the hammer can be reobtained. However, it will be covered in blood, and enemies who see 47 holding it will attack him, even if disguised as a worker.

Hitman: Absolution

The hammer can be used as a melee weapon head-on by smashing it into the side of a target's head, and by strangling an unsuspecting target. Alternatively, it may be thrown and used as a distraction.


Like Hitman: Absolution's implementation of the hammer, the hammer can be used to knock out targets and as a distraction.

In the prologues Guided Training and Freeform Training you can find a hammer on Deck 01 inside the kitchen.

The Final Test

In The Final Test prologue mission there are a total of six hammers and at least one on each of the three main floors. On level 0 you can pick one up straight away by locating the one on the west side of the spawn area. After entering through the west side entrance you can find one just north west of the entrance. There is also one in the middle of nowhere on the ground, north west of the hangar's main opening. Another one can be found inside the most north western room of the ground level.

On level 1 there is a hammer located on the west side of the outdoor terrace on the south side of the floor. On level 2 there is a hammer located on the outdoor terrace just north of the room with stairs leading down in the south west corner.

The Showstopper

In The Showstopper episode, there are hammers to be found on each level except for down in the basement. On the ground level you can find a hammer in the south west corner of the large middle room where the catwalk is located. There are also two hammers on the outskirts of Palais de Walewska, one of which can be found inside the north western shed, and one of which can be found on the west side of the most south eastern park area, located on the south side of the palace.

On level 2 there is a hammer located in the north west corner of the large western room with the balcony. There is also one inside the storage room, which is the south eastern room with entrances leading to the corridors overlooking the palace's main entrance on the east side. In the room east of this storage room, the south eastern tower room, there is also a hammer to be found, lying ontop of the eastern balcony railing. On level 3 there are two hammers and both of them are located inside the attic. They can be found in the middle of the attic both on the north and south side, nearby to the single corridor which connects the northern and southern parts of the attic together.



  • In Blood Money, if NPCs see the player (disguised as a worker) kill someone by throwing it to the head, NPCs will not be aware. This may be a glitch.
