The sledgehammer in Dysmantle can be used to dismantle a lot of things such as smaller vehicles, rocks, stone walls, and many other resilient objects. It does not, however, destroy the largest metal objects. It can also be used as a pretty solid weapon against the many enemies you will encounter in the game.
How to Get a Sledgehammer in Dysmantle
Let’s start with the main requirement here: you need to be level 25. This will unlock a quest called “The Last Stand”, which will reward you with the recipe for the sledgehammer upon completion. As such, you simply need to reach level 25 and complete the quest. Let’s go over how to start and complete the quest, step by step.
First of all, you must obtain the quest from any loudspeaker in the outskirts of Central, which requires a gas mask to traverse. Here are the coordinates for the loudspeakers:
- 716º, 347º
- 808º, 535º
- 815º, 396º
Any of these should do. After starting the quest, you have to make your way to the park at 720º, 416º. Be warned that the are machine gun turrets in the area, so try to carefully take them out from long range. If you need to restock, keep in mind that these turrets do not respawn, so you can return to camp and come back.
Now, you have to pick up and read the note found at 760º, 439º. Then go and obtain the City Hall Key at 828º, 440º. This key opens the door to the east, at 825º, 433º. This allows you to go behind the City Hall, where you will find two Skinless Skulkers. Killing them should complete the quest and reward you with the recipe for the sledgehammer.
Finally, you just need to craft the sledgehammer. It’s a simple recipe at lv0, requiring just 8 Stones and 4 Lumbers and it can be upgraded up to +5. That’s how you obtain the sledgehammer, which should help you survive the post-apocalyptic world of Dysmantle.

Genshin Impact: Sandglass Dendroculus Puzzle Guide
Get rewarded for clearing this new exploration-based mechanic.
Primal Sandglasses are a new mechanic for exploration that you’ll find in the Ruins of King Deshret. Flipping one will start a timed challenge where you’ll need to flip other Primal Sandglasses. Doing so within the time will grant you a reward.
In this guide we’ll teach you how to beat one of these challenges.
The Sandglass Location
To find the Primal Sandglass that rewards you with a Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest you’ll want to go west of The Mausoleum of King Deshret.
Get to the red-circled area – there’s a Four-Leaf Sigil around to make the travel faster. You’ll end in an area with one of the squared-floor panels that you can activate by interacting with the book front of it. This will create an updraft that will get you to a Dendroculus waiting on top, plus a Forged Primal Light.
From that position you can look at the second area, the one we encircled in a blue circle in the first image. Take the Forged Primal Light to the panel there to create a Primal Sandglass.
The Sandglass Time Trial Challenge
Once you flip the Primal Sandglass you’ll have29 seconds to flip the other two. It may look simple, but there’s invisible walls that’ll make tricky getting to the others.
First you’ll want to do a straight-line run towards where the red arrow points: the part where you can see stone steps rather than sand.
From here turn to the right and keep going forward until you crash against the invisible wall. Then employ some wall-hugging: move while sticking close to the wall so that at the moment it stops being there, your character will get past it to the other side.
When you ‘see’ the door get past it and turn back in direction to the hourglass. This time the wall will be to the right-side of your character. Make your way to the Sandglass normally, and we’re on to the last one.
From that sandglass you’ll run straight to the second batch of stone-floor.
At that point, turn 90° degrees to the right until you see another invisible wall flare up blue. You’ll turn 90° degrees to your right again. Make sure to wall-hug a little so that you can see where the wall ends.
After you’ve cleared the wall do a full turn around, leaving it to left-side of your body and run in a straight line like you were trying to get the torch close to the last Sandglass. You’ll be clear off the wall in a matter of seconds and you can make a beeline for the last Sandglass. Flip it.
Now just walk forward in the direction of the Four-Leaf Sigil, but don’t use it. If you look down you’ll be able to see the Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest to its right.
