        17h of gameplay with the starter weapon hammer including all the crashes with only other weapon that came up my way beeing the straight out bad downgrade skull flail just to find out that the game will lose 2h of gathering scrap without check point but will save immediately after you kill the boss and no alt+f4 helps. The fact that it just looks like another skippable boss with no secretes and that even if you get near the easily breakable hiding urns it's hard to see they are somehow interactable as you have to look at it from a certain side from a certain distance at a certain angle for the interactive prompt to pop up - just plain out sucks.
        I have to reset those 17h of gameplay for a chance of replacing the starter weapon? I'm done...

          something that I haven't seen mentioned elsewhere, the lunge attack on this and the Wastelander Flail count as a charged attack for the purposes of applying effects such as the 2 stacks of corrosion on the Butcher's Flail, Razorstone, Butcher's Fetish, etc. It doesn't do as much damage as a standard charged attack, but still very useful. I haven't tested to see if it also receives increased damage from the Hard Charger trait yet

                This weapon is attained by breaking the hammer of The Unclean One on Corvus. After he throws it it becomes breakable until he picks it up again.

                  The Second way to kill the boss is not available yet. The weapon exists in the game but there is no way to get it as of yet. We will just have to wait for a future update/patch for it to be available through legit means.
