The Breaker is a Demonite-tier hammer. 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, rounding reveals that Legendary and Light mine at equal speeds for this tool.
