- "Don't let its size deceive you, this .50 caliber pistol is definitely the kind of 'last resort' that you want to have at your disposal if you find yourself out of ammunition or fumbling around with a reload on your main weapon."
- ―In-game description
The Hammer is similar to the Majestic, with a slightly faster rate of fire, lower damage, a few extra bullets in its magazine, and the ability to attach a silencer. The Hammer's more useful at close range than the Majestic due to its higher rate of fire, but it lacks the stopping power of the Majestic as well as the ability to attach a scope.
In Multiplayer, the player will unlock a C.E.L.L. camouflage for the Hammer after the first Reboot.
The following text is taken from Weapon Focus section of the official Crysis website (now dead):
The latest in high-caliber handguns, Ukrainian Lisunov Arms have unleashed a true beast with their new Hammer pistol. Designed for the heavy hitting .50 cal Compact round, the Hammer boasts unrivaled stopping power for its class, capable of piercing spider silk body armor with just a few shots.
Insufficient for military usage as a sidearm, due to its low magazine size and high recoil, the weapon is nonetheless popular with bodyguard services and other private contractors around the globe, where instant stopping power counts more than ammo capacity.
Recently, rumors emerged that mega corporation CryNet have secured a lucrative contract with Lisunov to equip their private sector C.E.L.L. security forces with Hammer pistols, despite concerns from civil rights lawyers that the weapon would be overkill in the hands of law enforcement. CryNet were unavailable for comment on the matter.
