On April 1st, Volition revealed an unusual melee weapon known as the Ostrich hammer for their upcoming third-person shooter Red Faction: Guerrilla. It wasn't just an April Fool's joke, though - you'll actually get to wield it in the game.

As you can see from the screenshots, the Ostrich hammer is an Ostrich (legs bound together) that one swings by the neck in order to bludgeon foes. Volition announced today on the Guerrilla website that the hammer will be a multiplayer unlockable. They also promise that the Ostrich is but one of many unlockables in the full game.

Guerrilla will be released on June 9th, which should give the Ostrich Defense League plenty of time to mount a protest campaign.
