The Cael Hammer is the first weapon that The Kid uses in Bastion. It is the only melee-only weapon in Bastion: unlike the War Machete, it cannot be thrown. Instead, it deals the most damage out of any melee-centric weapon in the game. The hammer does more damage when The Kid is more stationary, presumably because he can put more power behind using the heavy weapon.
Like every weapon in Bastion, the Cael Hammer is upgradeable. There are 5 tiers of upgrades, with 2 options for every tier. The upgrades are listed below:
|Effect||Option 1||Option 2||Effect|
|+50% Damage||Sledge Head||Battle Head||+10% Critical Hit Chance|
|New Ability: Focus Attack||Extended Grip||Reverse Grip||Uppercut Attacks Cause Knockback|
|+50% Damage||Alloy Shaft||Craftsman Shaft||+100% to Critical Hit Damage|
|Attacks Ignore Armor||Checkered Face||Bell Face||Overhead Strikes Can Stun|
|+75% Damage||Cael Engravings||Ura Engravings||+25% Critical Hit Chance|
+150% to Critical Hit Damage
