Sergeant Bama “the Hammer” Kowalski has served some of the toughest tours around the Koprulu sector. The thunderous roar of her siege tank’s shock cannon strikes fear right into the heart of the toughest of warriors...including some of her allies.
Sgt. Hammer has the ability to alternate between Tank Mode (where she is mobile and has a shorter range and less powerful damage) and her Siege mode (where she is immobile yet has a longer range and more damage compared to her mobile counterpart).
- Outstanding range
- Good waveclear
- Excellent duelist
- Very high sustained and burst damage
- Excellent at pushing and killing heroes
- Excels at objective based backgrounds (such as Battlefield of Eternity)
- Easy to master once learned
- Solid self-sustain with Regenerative Bio-Steel
- Vulnerable to skillshots while in Siege Mode
- Relies on her team to protect her
- Weaker when not in Siege Mode
- Limited teamfight potential without regular mount
- Fairly high learning curve

Sgt. Hammer can outheal Lunara's poison with Regenerative Bio-Steel talent, and her range, damage and health pool are higher than Lunara's health, range and damage. This allows Sgt. Hammer to duel with Lunara at almost anytime.
