|The battle hook|
|Kill(s):||19 (1 non-canon)|
The battle hook is a meat hook attached to a wire to be used as a weapon. It is the signature weapon of Sanford, who uses it as both a melee and a ranged weapon, as a stabbing tool or to pull enemies closer.
Sanford first used his hook in Madness Combat 9: Aggregation to dispatch the A.T.P. engineers of the truck by swinging it on the wire, hooking an engineer, and then launching his body at the other engineers. He also uses his hook as a hacking tool as well later on. In Madness Combat 10: Abrogation, Sanford continues to use it until the wire was cut out of his hand by an engineer while he was attacking a Mag Agent: V4, leaving the hook stuck in the giant's head. In Madness Combat 7.5, Sanford uses it to "fish" an engineer and several agents from atop the roof, then uses it to kill many other agents by throwing and gauging. Before putting the hook away, Sanford wipes the blood off the hook on a dead l33t agent's body.
Exclusively in the Story Mode of Madness: Project Nexus, the battle hook can be used by Sanford. Unlike other weapons in the game, it cannot be discarded and can be used virtually indefinitely. When thrown, the hook will always return to Sanford by the wire. Sanford can use it to reel enemies closer to him while disarming them.
