The Hanbo is a blunt weapon featured in Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide. It can be sold by various Merchants and found in Metal chests or on killed zombies.

Overview[]

As a blunt weapon it is most similar to the Sledgehammer but with several differences, most notably being its swing speed. For its hard stats, the Hanbo does decent damage, though not as much as one handed weapons, and has good durability with decently high force. However, being a two handed weapon, it has a relatively high stamina usage when swung. It does, however, have one of the fastest swing speeds of a two handed weapon and good melee range, allowing you to attack zombies from outside their melee range. Whilst its slow swing speed and overall poor handling makes it a liability against fast zombies such as Infected, it is perfect for taking on a larger group of Walkers or high health, low mobility special infected like Thugs or Wrestlers.
