Magma hammer

The Magma Hammer is a Fire-elemental sword available for Matt in Epic Battle Fantasy 4.


The Magma Hammer is a golden or possibly brass halberd with a red grip. It has a spike at the end of it and has a large hammer like substitute for the axe on the side (hence the name). The hammer has a metal section next to some sort of lava-like material that appears to be porous. It may well be cooled lava, but the color makes this unlikely unless it was painted.

The Magma Hammer is a defensive weapon with a knack for burning everything. Not only does it have the ability to inflict Burn with Weapon-elemental attacks, the Magma Hammer can also cast a fire elemental skill when attacking which can result in an additional burn. This can lead to the Magma Hammer wearing out the foe's health over time.

The Magma Hammer packs strong well rounded stats, with solid offensive stats and a large boost to both defenses and HP. This does unfortunately come at the cost of a 10% decrease to Evade and Accuracy. While this may make it a bit unwieldy, the Magma Hammer is a weapon with a good balance of power and defense, especially at the time it is obtained in the game.

In terms of resistances, the Magma Hammer provides a resistance to Fire, Bomb and, oddly enough, Freeze instead of Burn. The Freeze resistance becomes an immunity at level 5.

  • Technically, this should be a lava hammer as it is outside of the ground.
  • The Magma Hammer's actual "hammer" (and therefore the icon) resembles a hammer being hit against an anvil, such as in a forge.
