As an Engineer I like using two-handed weapons because of the Heavy Lifting passive skill that gives bonus attack speed and stun chance. However, I'm not sure if the Greathammer I'm currently using causes splash damage, so I'm wondering if I should try another two-handed.

Which weapon types in Torchlight 2 cause splash damage (in particular, two-handed weapons), and how large is the splash arc and splash damage dealt by each weapon type?

In terms of basic attacks, all melee weapons, with the exception of claw-class, splash to multiple targets. This includes staves. Projectile Weapons (all ranged weapons including wands) never splash. –  Raven Dreamer Jan 16 '13 at 23:54
@RavenDreamer So I can keep using my Greathammer :) but do you know if the damage and arc varies for weapons that splash? –  Sadly Not Jan 17 '13 at 2:08
@SadlyNot It does. I can't remember where I read the differences between the weapon types, but if I do I'll answer. –  SaintWacko Jan 17 '13 at 3:50
Don't shotguns splash? –  jw013 Jan 17 '13 at 20:45

You can check the splash arc radius, distance, and % of full damage that splash attacks do for your current weapon by looking at the Arcane Statistics panel.
