"Popular among smaller tribes with fewer resources, The Hammer was modified to be more ammo efficient. Ironically, the phrase 'Dropping the Hammer' refers to warriors who are cowardly in combat."

The Hammer is one of the five shotgun variations in Tribes: Ascend, and is an unlockable secondary weapon for the Brute, and a variant of the Automatic Shotgun, while holding less ammo, it deals more damage.
