These cleavers cut throgh your enemy like a knife!


Cleavers are weapons which can be thrown at your foes and deals damage (depending on speed) on a direct hit only.

You can also allow yourself to climb higher or block entrances. Cleavers stick on the terrain and can be abused further.


  • Damage: Varies, it increases with speed
  • Number of shots: 2
  • Charge to shoot: Yes
  • Affected by wind: No
  • Ends turn: Yes
  • Retreat time: 3s
  • Crate type: Weapon


The damage increases with the speed the cleaver has on impact. On short distances, the damage usually ranges between ca. 10-30 damage per hit, but in extreme cases it can theorecially even get as high as ca. 78 damage or maybe even higher than that, but this is very difficult to achieve in normal games.


Aim and hold the Attack key pressed to throw with more power. You have two cleavers.

Object behaviour

After impact, cleavers act as objects. They can block entrances, hedgehogs can walk on them and they can still be pushed and thrown around by explosions. These cleavers can still deal damage to hedgehog, if fast enough, so be careful.

Cleavers have a chance to drop off the land and straight into the water if they take a lot of abuse.
In order to this to happen, a cleaver has to receive at least 30 damage in a single blow. Whenever a cleaver receives this amount of damage, it may or may not fall into the water, based on chance which increases with the amount of damage taken.
If it receives 100 or more damage at once, a cleaver falls off the land for sure.
