The signature hammer of the only lunatic fearsome enough to bust out of the Saturn Six Max-Pen. Once loosed this formidable throwing hammer always finds its way home.

The Wolf Sledge is the signature hammer of the Wolf of Saturn Six. In addition to its high status chance, the sledge can be thrown by holding the melee button, similar to Glaives.


This weapon deals primarily DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact and DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage.


  • High DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact and DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage – effective against shields and health.
  • Good critical chance.
  • Third highest status chance of all hammers, behind CrpHammer.png Arca Titron and CSHeliocor.png Synoid Heliocor.
  • Holding the melee button throws the hammer in a similar manner to a DEGlaive.png Glaive, which can bounce once or travels up to 40 meters before returning to the user, damaging anyone in its path. Meleeing while the hammer is in mid-flight commands it to return immediately.
    • Primary and secondary weapons can be fired and reloaded normally with a thrown hammer, and retrieving the hammer does not interrupt these actions. Additional throws can also be "buffered" while the hammer is in mid-flight.
    • Hitting the head of an enemy with a thrown attack will cause it to home in on another before returning.
    • Killing an enemy with a thrown attack will cause it to seek a random nearby enemy regardless of hitting their head.
    • Heavy Attacks while the hammer is in mid-flight produces a 5 meter explosion and forces the hammer to return.
      • Explosion has innate DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast damage – effective against Machinery and Fossilized.
      • Explosion does not need direct line of sight to deal damage and will penetrate walls.
      • No damage falloff.
    • Hits from a thrown Sledge contribute to Melee Combo count.
  • Regular heavy attack does not consume combo count.
  • Stance polarity Madurai Pol.svg matches Mod TT 20px.png Crushing Ruin.

  • The standard heavy attack does not consume or add to Melee Combo count.
  • Throw attack properties:
    • Travels primarily in a straight line with slight homing properties.
    • Has a range of 40 meters unmodified by melee range mods.
    • Can bounce up to one time between targets although it does not seem to be guaranteed.
    • Does not punch through terrain.
    • Deals 3x damage but otherwise has unchanged attack properties (status, crit, etc).
    • Hits contribute to the combo multiplier. Explosion hits do not.
    • Explosion will always ragdoll the enemy unless they are immune to the effect.
    • Hitting an enemy's head with the thrown attack will cause it to seek random nearby enemies.
    • Killing an enemy with a thrown attack will cause it to seek a random nearby enemy regardless of hitting their head.
    • Will not seek an additional enemy if none are close enough (about 10 meters).
    • If it hits a surface before hitting the next enemy it will return to you.
    • It will only seek 1 additional enemy, before returning, after hitting its first target.
    • Throw animation is affected by mods that modify heavy attack speed (e.g. Killing Blow), but the thrown attack is not considered a heavy attack for other purposes (e.g. Life Strike)
    • Cannot be buffered after certain combo animations or thrown mid-air.
  • Recall explosion properties:
    • Deals 777 DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast damage in a 5 meter radius, unaffected by melee range mods.
    • Recall explosion causes self-stagger.
    • Has a high proc chance which is affected by equipped elemental damage mods.
    • Is a heavy attack, and so resets combo count, like a glaive, and is compatible with heavy attack mods.
  • Despite being throwable, it cannot equip glaive-exclusive mods such as Mod TT 20px.png Power Throw and Mod TT 20px.png Rebound.
  • MirageIcon272.png Mirage's HallOfMirrors130xDark.png Hall Of Mirrors throws five hammers.
