The Sledge Hammer is a melee weapon found in Hitman: Absolution.
- "A large, heavy hammer commonly used for fracturing concrete, and other demolition work."
The sledge hammer can be used to attack targets head-on, swinging it into their heads, or it may be used from behind on an unsuspecting target to strangle them. Alternatively, it may be thrown and used as a distraction. Please note that it is considered a heavy object and cannot be thrown as far as most objects, without Throwing II and Throwing III.

- Hunter and Hunted: Derelict building, on the wall next to the room where the knife is located.
- Skurky's Law: In the prison, just before turning right to the fighting pit, near the corner; in the cell diagonal from the entrance hall way to the fighting pit.
- Countdown: In the storeroom, leaning against some lockers.
