- For the start-up move to this technique, see Wild Whirl.
The Wild Whirl Were-Hammer is one of the Hook Attack Skills used by Sonic the Werehog in the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of Sonic Unleashed. When using this move, Sonic throws a combo of slashes before jumping up and launching a vertical punch into the ground.
When performing this move, Sonic first performs the Wild Whirl. After that, Sonic jumps high into the air, from where he then enlarges his right fist and throws it directly and vertically into the ground in a powerful punch, with the impact being powerful enough to knock nearby opponent(s) into the air.
The Wild Whirl Were-Hammer becomes available in the game when Sonic the Werehog's Combat parameter reaches level 20. To perform the Wild Whirl Were-Hammer in gameplay, the player must press / in quick succession. In gameplay, the final part of the Wild Whirl Were-Hammer knocks the opponent(s) into the air, allowing the player to attack the airborne enemies with Aerial attacks.
