Some questionable armor piercing stats of Thunder Hammer

Issue Description:
Wrong Armor Penetration( And therefore all damage of Thunder Hammer). I know these stats are part of game balance as a whole but it’s Impossible that big hammer has such abysmally low armor penetration.

I did some research in this post:

And had to do such bug report because in my opinion these numbers are completely off.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Log in.
  2. Open stats of MAUL and for example Eviscerator.
  3. Just look at them and see that something wrong.

Upload Supporting Evidence:
Armor penetration af Thunder Hammer with pretty high stats:

Armor penetration of Evisceratr(chainsaw btw):

So even if TH has noticably higher % stats( they’re closer to the best stats) Hammer for some reson has 40% less damage agains flack armor and up to 10% less damage agains carapace armor

Once again I understand that game balance is tough and you have to operate with insane amount of variables but still you cannot say that MAUL overall penetrates armor worse than chainsaw.

Basically every other weapon that has armor penetration has higher armor penetrating stats than big hammer even one handed axe:

I did another post about super low headshot damage of TH there:

I suppose it’s because some hidden “finesse” stat that that is so low you might as well not strike the head at all. But since I cannot see hidden stats I cannot approve it.

Please look into these problems.
