The Megaton Hammer is a massive hammer that can be found at Arcwind Point. Although it is a one-handed weapon, the Megaton Hammer deals as much damage as a two-handed Elven Warhammer. It also possesses an enchantment that paralyzes, knocks down, and drains the stamina of foes. It also deals extra damage to dragons.
The Megaton Hammer is the one-handed counterpart to the Skull Hammer, and carries the same enchantment.
The Megaton Hammer responds to the equipment of its wielder, as well as the equipment of its target. The hammer may knock down enemies with each strike, but the chance of knockback raises depending on several factors. The force of the knockback is always the same.
|Factor||Chance of Knockback|
|Wearing Silver Gauntlets||25%|
|Wearing Golden Gauntlets||50%|
|Wearing Platinum Gauntlets||75%|
|Performing power attack||100%|
The Megaton Hammer will also deal 40 points of Stamina damage to all enemies, as well as a chance to paralyze enemies for 7 seconds. Dragons receive 26 points of health damage for 1 second, tapering for another second.
Enchantment Removal and Restoration Edit
The knockback effect can be removed by combining the Skull Hammer with an empty lesser soul gem. The effect can be returned by combining the Skull Hammer with a filled common soul gem.
Background and InspirationEdit
The Megaton Hammer was originally created for JKalenad's Megaton Hammer mod. After creating the Blade of Evil's Bane mod, JKalenad was inspired to put a Megaton Hammer into Skyrim. However, he struggled to find the right mesh for the Hammer, as they were all too cartoonish. So, he decided to create his own model from a Dwarven Warhammer and a Dwarven Mace. When he was finally pleased with his work, JKalenad published the Megaton Hammer mod on July 6, 2013. It was later added into Relics of Hyrule.
