Dragon Quest Builders 2 Hammer - How to Get the Giant Mallet in Dragon Quest Builders 2

Here's how you can get the giant mallet in Dragon Quest Builders 2.

If you watched any trailer or gameplay footage for Dragon Quest Builders 2, you'll probably have seen the hero character wandering around with a hammer, laying waste to all blocks and obstacles in their path. In this guide, we'll be walking you through how to get a hammer in Dragon Quest Builders 2 from when you start out the game.

How to Get a Hammer in Dragon Quest Builders 2

When you first start out the storyline of Dragon Quest Builders 2, you'll find yourself aboard a pirate ship, surrounded with nothing but a ghostly crew for company. You won't have the hammer when you first start out Dragon Quest Builders 2, which is by far and away the best tool for destroying any obstacles in your path.

If you're new to Dragon Quest Builders 2, destroying things in your path is vital because it rewards you with the corresponding material for building. So for example, if you destroy a barrel, you're going to be rewarded with a small amount of wood for your efforts. The hammer fast tracks this process, meaning you can earn more items quicker.

To acquire the hammer, you need to complete the opening tutorial section of Dragon Quest Builders, aboard the pirate ship. After this, you'll wake up on the Isle of Awakening, where you meet Maloth, and Lulu shortly afterwards. In this section, you'll need to construct a house, three beds, and cook food for Lulu.

Once this section is done and you've rested up in the beds for the night, a ghostly monster will steal Lulu's pendant. Give chase to the monster, all the way up a small mountain path, and you'll eventually be presented with a blueprint to construct. Don't worry, this is really easy to put together, and involves the hero character putting together some blocks with braziers atop them.

After you've done this, you'll be rewarded with the hammer from the mysterious ghost. Finally! You've got the hammer, and you can start destroying obstacles in your path with ease, thus speeding up the time you need to gather resources together.
