The hammer is also used to destroy Walls that have been placed by the player. Naturally occurring walls, such as cave walls, are unaffected by hammers unless broken from the edges. This includes dirt wall, stone wall, ebonstone wall, pearlstone wall, molten wall, dungeon brick wall; even if they are used for your house they must still be broken from the edges.
The Breaker is the only hammer that can be used as a weapon on par with other weapons of its tier (does a big 24 damage and heavy knockback.)
Although low-tier hammers have futile damage, they can still be used to knock enemies away since they have good knockback.
