Not to be confused with the Breaker Blade.

The Breaker is a Demonite-tier hammer that deals 24 damage with a very slow speed and a hammer power of 55%. It is equivalent in hammer power (though it does far more damage) to the Gold Hammer and is one tier lower than the Meteor Hamaxe.

Its best Modifier is Legendary. While Light may seem to provide a better speed boost by percentages, after rounding Legendary and Light mine at equal speeds.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • One advantage of the Breaker over most other melee weapons is that it swings repeatedly when the attack button is held down. However, while swinging the Breaker in this fashion, the player cannot turn around, a potential disadvantage when mobbed from both sides. A decent hit box that extends slightly behind the player compensates somewhat for this, and when used properly the Breaker's ability to keep swinging without turning around can allow the player to give ground against mobs without discontinuing their melee attacks.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop VersionMobile only.png3DS logo.svgModifier prefixes are added in front of the "The" in its name, resulting in a grammatically incorrect name, such as "Legendary The Breaker". It shares this trait with all other items that can possess Modifiers and whose names begin with "The". This error is not present in the Console Version Console version.
