A baseball bat is a blunt melee weapon.

Usage

Weapon

The baseball bat is particularly effective when used to deliver blows to the head. It usually won't kill a standing zombie but will either send it to the ground, allowing the character to follow up with a killing blow, or knock it back.

The baseball bat also has a long range (for a melee weapon), capable of keeping a small group of zombies at a distance while delivering killing blows or addressing zombies in another direction. It is a multi-attack weapon, capable of hitting 2 zombies at a time in a single swing. Unfortunately, the baseball bat has a finite durability, so it is recommended to have a backup weapon at hand when going on extended missions.

Breaking doors

It is partly effective at bashing down doors, dealing 7 damage per hit. For comparison, an axe deals 35 damage.

Chopping trees

It will only deal 1 damage to a tree per hit. For comparison, an axe deals 35 damage.

Condition

The baseball bat is a blunt weapon, therefore being influenced by the blunt skills: accuracy, guard and maintenance. It has a maximum condition of 15 and will be damaged depending on the player's maintenance skill. The chance of losing durability is: 1 in (20 + maintenance x 2)
