Description[edit | edit source]
Hammerheads are medium-size shark-like creatures. They have at least two pairs of eyes, four claws, four fins, and a long tail, which is their primary mode of locomotion.
Their most distinctive feature is their flat heads, which are reminiscent of the head of a claw hammer.
Hammerheads are somewhat solitary creatures, but are sometimes seen in groups of two or three.
In-game[edit | edit source]
Hammerheads are capable of inflicting considerable damage to the outer walls of a submarine, utilizing their flat heads to bash holes in a given surface. They are completely deaf, but highly sensitive to light, and as such can be avoided by disabling exterior lighting on board the submarine.
They cannot enter the submarine, and will relentlessly pound at the outer hull of the submarine and its occupants.
Hammerheads also drop a Swim Bladder and a unit of Alien Blood upon death.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Astonishingly, the Hammerhead's front is based on the shape of a hammer. The name is likely also a reference to the Hammerhead shark.
