Rather similar to fellow unique axe Hellslayer, Messerschmidt's Reaver gives a very large bonus to Maximum damage that grows with higher levels. However, Messerschmidt's Reaver can be seen as a "safer" weapon for several reasons: it has a higher minimum damage, is less dependent on added Fire damage, and it is also slightly faster, allowing for more hits when compared to the Hellslayer.

- Like Hellslayer, Messerschmidt's Reaver is another item revived from the classic Diablo containing most of the original stat bonuses (although enhanced) as its previous version.
- In the original DotA, there is an artifact called Messerschmidt's Reaver as a reference to this weapon. In later iterations, the item name was shortened to just Reaver.
