The Smash-Slash Hitting Attack Gashacon Breaker (激打撃斬ガシャコンブレーカー Gekida Bekizan Gashakon Burēkā) is a hammer-like multiform weapon wielded by Kamen Rider Ex-Aid.
When Kamen Rider Chronicle commenced, the Gashacon Breaker was temporarily wielded by a Ride-Player who had stolen the Mighty Action X Gashat from Ex-Aid. It was returned when the Ride-Player was eliminated by Kamen Rider Para-DX.

- Gashacon Trigger (ガシャコントリガー Gashakon Torigā) is a trigger used for triggering finisher. When casting a finisher, first insert a Rider Gashat in the Gashat Slot. After that, by pulling the trigger, a reinforcement program built in the Gashat starts, and a powerful weapon finisher with its characteristics is activated.
- EXP Grip (ＥＸＰグリップ EXP Gurippu) is the grip of the Gashacon Breaker. It has a lightweight design that emphasizes attack speed. Also, it has a function to update the system data according to the fighting ability of the user, and to improve weapon performance.
A close combat melee weapon, the Gashacon Breaker has two modes; Hammer Mode (ハンマーモード Hanmā Mōdo) and Blade Mode (ブレードモード Burēdo Mōdo) which Ex-Aid switches between by pressing the A-Button.
