Pile Driver is Impact Man's signature weapon, originating from Mega Man 11. It is featured in Mega Man Maker as of version 1.6.0.

When the attack key is pressed, the player's arm turns into a jackhammer as the player themselves dash forward 5.5 tiles. When it makes contact with a solid surface or enemy with more than 4 HP, it will make the user recoil off of it, creating an explosion that deals extra damage on top of the dash attack. Both parts of the attack can pierce shielded enemies. While dashing, the user is immune to projectiles and certain hazards such as Force Beams, and if they use Pile Driver while standing on ice tiles, they keep the momentum of the dash until they move.

Since the player slightly recoils upwards when recoiling off of something, using Pile Driver on walls can allow them to climb upwards. Climbing upwards can be done by dashing into walls repeatedly via quickly weapon switching from Pile Driver and back again in rapid succession (doing this underwater is especially easy due to the slow rate of the player falling). Additionally, it's capable of destroying Cracked Blocks. Crunch Don will take extra damage from this weapon, and can be destroyed in one dash and recoil combo.
