Hammers are used by every ice breaker. When any ice or a rat lands on the longboat, the ice breaker will go and smack it with its hammer. This hammer will kill every rat it hits, and destroy pieces of Ice. If ice is to big, it will hit it infinitely until the player makes the ice smaller. Hammers appear in every level of the Ice Breaker series.
The hammer is a the second strongest weapon in Double Edged, the first being the lion hammer. enemy soldiers, commanders, Spartans, and skeletons can all pick up the hammer. It is much bigger then the axe, and deals a lot more damage. When brought down, anyone caught in the blast will be knocked unconscious, and tossed backwards, frequently rebounding off the edges of the screen. It is first introduced in stage 2-2, the stage with the fight with Hercules. An enemy commander is seen holding it.
