This weapon possesses strong penetration and attack power, and moves like the Air Shooter, in an upward-curving arc, though the Silver Tomahawk has a slight downward dip in its trajectory. If fired so the projectile hits a Tatebo or Shield Attacker GTR from below or behind, it will ignore the shield and destroy them in a single hit. The same is true of Knight Man, though he is not weak to the weapon. The arcing motion and piercing properties of the weapon also make it effective against groups of Wall Blasters II.

- Screw Crusher almost mirrors Silver Tomahawk, as S. Tomahawk drops low then arcs up, while S. Crusher goes up then arcs down.
