How to obtain the Zealot Thunder Hammer in Warhammer 40k Darktide

To get the Zealot Thunder Hammer in Warhammer 40k, you must level your Zealot class to level 16. Around level 16, the Thunder Hammer will unlock, but it won't appear in the store. The Armory Exchange store where players buy weapons is random and doesn't always list new items. Because of this, you may need to wait for a few levels and inventory refreshes before the Thunder Hammer will appear. Some players reported that they didn't get the Thunder Hammer until level 25
