The Zeushammer is a DLC melee weapon that emits an EMP upon hitting a target.
Zeushammers cannot be crafted, instead they can only be purchased from Outlander and Empire combat suppliers and faction bases, or received as a quest reward.
They can also be obtained from the following raider types:

The zeushammer is a strong, blunt melee weapon. It completely beats a uranium mace of the same quality. However, it falls short of the monosword's sheer damage output and AP.
When a zeushammer hits with its head, its EMP will stun mechanoids, turrets, and mortars for 4.5s, regardless of quality. After being stunned, mechanoids become 'Adapted' and gain immunity against further stuns for 2,200 ticks (36.67 secs), regardless of stun length.
Blunt damage in it of itself also has a small chance to stun the target, regardless of their organic status.
As a zeushammer deals blunt damage, it can be better than the monosword against armor, as most enemies have much better Sharp % rating than Blunt. However, the sword will completely ignore even a centipede's Sharp armor. Zeushammers only start to surpass them when against humans with marine armor and cataphract armor. Even then, a monosword's raw damage will not be far behind.
Due to adaptation, a zeushammer actually becomes counterproductive when fighting mechs along with EMP grenades or another source of EMP. All other sources of EMP stun for much longer, and the first stun causes adaptation immediately. The zeushammer retains its niche against turrets, as well as certain other uses of EMP (like breaking shield belts).
