A baseball bat is a blunt melee weapon.



The baseball bat is particularly effective against lone zombies. It usually won't kill a standing zombie in one hit, but it has a high chance to knock them down, allowing players to follow up with a killing blow.

The baseball bat also has a long range (for a melee weapon), and is capable of keeping a small group of zombies at a distance while delivering killing blows. It is capable of hitting up to 2 zombies at once with Multi-Hit enabled. The baseball bat has a decent durability with 15 Max Condition and a low chance to lose durability when used. It's one of the better melee weapons in the game, and a great starter weapon.
