Hammerheads are medium-size shark-like creatures. They have at least two pairs of eyes, four claws, four fins, and a long tail, which is their primary mode of locomotion.
Their most distinctive feature is their flat head, which is reminiscent of the head of a claw hammer.
Hammerheads are somewhat solitary creatures, but are sometimes seen in groups of up to five, though they typically come in groups of two to three.
Hammerheads are capable of inflicting considerable damage to the outer walls of a Submarine, utilizing their flat heads to bash holes in a given surface. They will relentlessly pound at the outer hull of the submarine and its occupants, being capable of stopping a fast moving sub dead in its tracks.
Hammerheads will protect Hammerhead Matriarchs, and attack any other creature on sight regardless as to whether the creature is stronger, or if the Hammerhead is wounded.
The Railgun is an incredibly effective weapon to use against the Hammerhead, as its high damage output allows the player to kill it in one to two shots depending on where they hit and what is loaded into the Railgun Shell. The Coilgun is slower but equally as effective, even with Regular Ammunition in use. Utilizing Piercing Ammunition can increase the speed of which the Coilgun kills the Hammerhead. Finally, the Pulse Laser is an incredibly effective, albeit expensive alternative to the Coilgun or Railgun.
The use of melee weapons is not recommended whilst fighting the Hammerhead. However, in a dire situation in which all other options have been exhausted, the player can use small arms weapons such as the SMG, Assault Rifle, Shotgun, or Autoshotgun. These weapons may not be as effective as onboard submarine weaponry, but they can be used in a crisis situation to neutralise the threat.
Hammerhead Bosses inflict +15% Affliction strength and structure damage.
