The shockwave effect not only works on you but also on the players around you. This means that you can utilize the weapon for movement if you and your teammates are stuck in the storm.

Utilize the hammer to shockwave your team across the map.

You can also shockwave enemies too. This feature allows for you to push an opponent in the opposite direction, giving you a chance to avoid close-up combat.
