    No. Get yourself a masonry chisel and a drilling hammer (like a hand held sledge). Use them to break off the tile. Wear gloves. Broke tile is extremely sharp.

    no. it is a "driver", for driving screws, bolts, or hex shank drill bits. It spins around, like a drill. Being an impact means it has super high torque for cranking tough screws into hard material, with less chance of stripping the head.

    You need a demolition hammer such as a Bosch Bulldog with a spade bit. It has a setting that converts it from a drill action to a hammer only action.

    You can also just use a hand cold chisel and a hammer to break tiles loose.
