Details Edit

The Rocket Hammer is capable of swinging once per second in a horizontal 180 degree angle where Reinhardt is currently looking, damaging any enemies caught in its range. If the button is held, the hammer will be swung from left to right and then right to left in succession. The enemy who gets hit will be moved a little bit in that direction, and the displaced distance depends on their weight and size.

Due to the Rocket Hammer being a two-handed melee weapon, Reinhardt cannot perform Quick Melee.

Trivia Edit

  • The Rocket Hammer is a massive weapon that requires powered rockets to give it momentum.[1]

Patch changes Edit
