Details Edit

The Forge Hammer is Torbjörn's alternate weapon. It has the ability to deal damage to enemy players, but its primary purpose is for upgrading and repairing his turrets.

Each swing will deal 55 damage to enemy players, and heal the turret for 50 HP. 5 swings of the Forge Hammer on a full-HP level 1 turret are required to upgrade it to level 2.
