Executed by pressing forward and Medium Punch, Abigail delivers a downward, hammer fist attack.
As an overhead attack, the main purpose is to break through the defenses of an opponent who insists on crouch guarding (as the attack must be blocked from a standing position). The draw back causes considerable delay, and this attack can easily be countered by an aggressive opponent by hitting her beforehand. Similar to most overheads, this attack is unsafe on block. However, while it is -8 on block, it can be difficult for his opponent to punish if properly spaced.
This move is one of Abigail's overheads, in addition to Avalanche Press. Abi Hammer inflicts slightly more damage than other characters' overheads. Additionally, this attack can be used to get meaty overhead setups. With Abi Hammer +3 on hit, he can link into Crouching Light Kick for a full combo. By pressuring the opponent with low, quick attacks to get them on their heels, Abigail can use his overhead to break through their defenses and amplify his pressure game.
