The Hammer Assault Rifle is available in all rarities from Common to Legendary. It does decent damage, especially if you control the recoil to aim and fire quickly after the first shot.

The key to dealing damage, including 1.5X headshot damage, with a Hammer Assault Rifle is controlling the recoil. The magazine holds 20 and has a consistent fire rate, so feel free to fire off shots as you like to get used to the recoil effect. Check out the stats below for each rarity:

The Hammer Assault Rifle can be found as floor loot, in regular and rare chests, in fishing spots, supply drops, and in a weapon vending machine. Common rifles can only be found as floor loot and in plain water fishing spots, while uncommon rifles can also be found in regular chests. Rare rarity Hammer ARs are best found in regular chests, as floor loot and in fishing holes. Both Epic and Legendary Hammer ARs are usually found in regular and rare chests, supply drops, and fishing holes.

The higher the rarity of rifle, the more difficult it is to find so make sure you look in the right places to get the rarity you need. If you don’t get a high enough rarity, you can always take the weapon to an upgrade bench (found at all Gas Stations) and upgrade using your Gold Bars. Good luck!
