Axes and hammers Edit

FFV Axe Icon iOS
FFV Hammer Icon iOS

Axes and hammers can be used by Freelancers, Berserkers and Gladiators. Like most weapons, axes and hammers gain bonus damage from Strength. Unlike most weapons, axes and hammers use a different damage formula which only takes 25% of the target's Defense into calculations instead of normal Defense values; therefore, their actual damage is generally higher than their attack implies.
