Paladin's Hammer is a Hardmode, post-Plantera boomerang-type melee weapon with extreme velocity and knockback, though with one of the shortest ranges of any boomerang. It pierces an unlimited number of enemies until impacting blocks or reaching its range limit. Paladin's Hammer is a rare drop from Paladins in post-Plantera Dungeon areas with Brick background walls.

As with all modifiable boomerangs, the best Modifier for Paladin's Hammer is Godly.

Notes[edit]

  • It cannot auto-fire, unlike most late-game weapons.
  • It can glitch through walls 1 block thick at certain angles/distances.
  • Increasing melee speed also increases its range (as with most boomerangs).
Anomaly.png Anomaly: When wearing Lightning Boots on Asphalt, if the hammer is thrown in the direction away from where you're running to, given enough melee speed, a second instance of the hammer can be thrown before the first has returned.
Bug.png Bug : Console only.png on the console version when throwing the hammer, other brief pictures of the hammer appear as if it was invisible then not invisible, then invisible again.

Tips[edit]

  • With good boosts and modifiers, it can reach or exceed 245 damage.
  • Its infinite pierce ability makes it effective against The Destroyer.
  • Effective against enemies that fire destroyable projectiles, eg. Corruptors, because the hammer can destroy the projectile and damage the caster in one swing.
  • Effective in PvP.

Trivia[edit]

  • The hammer is a common choice of weapon for paladins in many fantasy games. In most cases however, hammers aren't throwing weapons, nor do they function like boomerangs without the aid of magic. Its function does however resemble Mjölnir, the magical hammer wielded by Norse god Thor, which would return to his hand after being thrown.
