Escape from Tarkov: How to Find Sledgehammer

Nowadays, everybody wants to find the Fierce Blow Sledgehammer in Escape from Tarkov. It’s a really good weapon that looks amazing too, so it’s understandable that you want it in your inventory.

In this guide, I will tell you how to find the Sledgehammer, even if you lost it once already, before managing to reach the extract location.

Now, you might be wondering why is there such a mad dash to find the Sledgehammer in the game?

A recent update introduced a new feature implemented at the base for players to work on. To complete all the steps, you will also need the Sledgehammer.

There are three ways players can find the Sledgehammer and we’re going to check them all out below.

1. Random Chance

I know this isn’t something you even want to think about, but if you are playing the game, you may be one of the lucky few to have stumbled upon more than one.

I know it hurts to hear, but most often than not, repetition is key to these kinds of things.

Enjoy the game as you did, and experience all that the new stage has to offer. I understand that you may want to rush it, but the Sledgehammer is not the only thing added, and it would be a disservice to the developers to rush through the patch they released.

2. Technical Supply Crates

A 5×5 technical supply crate that contains Industrial and Electronic items.

For those of you, who are interested in searching for it, here is the first place to look.

The technical supply crates can contain a variety of items at different percentages. One of those items is the Sledgehammer in question.

Though you may need to brush up on your prayers to the RNG gods for this one.

With many spawn locations throughout the maps and even airdrops, you will get many chances as you play. As the old adage says, if at first you don’t succeed try, try again.

This was the first way, on how to find the Sledgehammer in Espace from Tarkov.
