Unlocking the Thunder Hammer

To get your hands on the warhammer Thunder Hammer, you will need to be the Zealot: Preacher, as it is exclusive to this operative. There are a few ways to get your hands on the Thunder Hammer.

For any of the methods, you’ll need to have achieved Trust Level 25. Only the most passionate Zealot warriors will benefit from this weapon. When you’ve achieved the high level, then the warhammer should start appearing in the Armoury Exchange for purchase. The weapon cycle in the Armoury Exchange refreshes every hour and is random, so you’ll need to keep checking back. Also once Trust Level 25, the weapon will start appearing in the Requisitorium, as either a gamble weapon or a listed item. It could also become an Emperor’s gift as a random reward after completing missions.
