While the Jackhammer deals more damage than the actual Crowbar it's not the best when it comes to moveability as in order to deal the most damage you're required to stand in place or move back slowly, Something that will get you easily killed on higher difficulties.McMatthew7898 wrote: ↑Tue Mar 14, 2023 3:29 pm
The jackhammer is generally better, but it has limited ammo and you don’t start with it. The crowbar does have some small advantages, you can use the lamp with it, it makes little noise, and the range might be a little longer.
The only time i find myself using the Jackhammer is too stunlock the Ghosts as i've found that using that against them prevents them from doing their attack animation (most of the time any way as i've encountered cases in where they could still attack me it could've been my fault but i can't really remember)
The Crowbar is honestly the better option for dealing with common Melee mutants as all you gotta do is bonk them on the head with the heavy attack and step back and them bonk them on the head again and repeat until their killed. Honestly works wonders in the arena you're locked in a later map, Although it can take long to get rid of them all. In rare cases i try to bonk Pithounds with the Crowbar as that usually kills them in one hit.
