Hammers can be equipped by any character as long as they have acquired the necessary license. Hammers deal unstable damage.

In the Zodiac versions, hammers, together with axes, are Foebreaker's primary weapon.

The damage formula for hammers is:

Axes use the Vitality damage formula. Damage depends on the weapon, the user's Strength and Vitality and character level. The characters' stats can vary. Vitality varies the most, by 30%, but Strength varies 10%. Basch has the lowest Vitality, which puts lower-stat characters like Balthier and Penelo in the top four for Strength+Vitality. The highest is Vaan, and Ashe at second highest, the only woman with second highest stats for a non-mage weapon.
