A Daedalus Hammer is an item that improves your weapon by upgrading its attacks. It can appear in the first room of a run, as a room-clear reward, or can be purchased from Charon for 200 before Styx and a guaranteed hammer for 500 in the first room of Styx. A total of three hammers can be acquired during the run, and their effects will stack. Only one hammer can be found in Tartarus or Asphodel, with the second appearing in Elysium; however, should you be unlucky enough to not get a hammer at all until Elysium, two can be acquired there. Some upgrades may be mutually exclusive with others. The effects of the Hammer are reset upon Zagreus's death.

Possible upgrades[edit | edit source]
The Hammer's upgrades vary from weapon to weapon, with some being minor adjustments and others shifting the playstyle of the weapon entirely. All upgrades affect either the Attack or Special of a given weapon; Zagreus's Cast is unaffected.
