Backpack Maul
Faction Red Faction
Type Hammer
Location Mars

The Maul is a melee weapon in Red Faction: Armageddon, similar to the Sledgehammer from Red Faction: Guerrilla. There are two modes of attack: primary fire delivers a swing from the side, while secondary fire delivers a brutal overhand blow, useful for killing Creepers who are too low to be hit by the primary attack.

Although the Maul is not a standard Red Faction weapon, the miners of colonies are the only ones that use them.


The Maul is awarded as a promotional melee weapon for the Pyro in Team Fortress 2 to players who pre-purchased Red Faction: Armageddon before June 6, 2011 on Steam.
