Flat metal head can apply more force than other hammers, due to its large size. Certainly useful for various demolition purposes. — In-game description

The Sledgehammer is a tool that can also be used as a blunt weapon in DayZ.

Its relatively high health, shock and bleeding damage makes the Sledgehammer a versatile melee weapon to use in melee combat.

An unused, pristine Sledgehammer can mine 16 Stones before becoming ruined.
