The pen is a writing implement and early game weapon.

Usage

Writing

A pen can be used with journals, empty notebooks and a sheet of paper to write notes that can be left for other players on Multiplayer servers. Maps can be annotated with a pen, adding symbols and text in the color of the pen used.

Weapon

The pen is considered a blade weapon that can kill zombies, but doing so will usually exhaust all of its durability; making it broken and rendering it useless.

Distribution

Pens can be found in three colours, standard, red and blue, each with the same stats.

Pens can be found in bins, lockers, zombie corpses, desks, shop counters, side tables, houseware store shelves, gift store crates, shelves and display cases, toy store shelves, sewing store shelves, schoolbags and garbage bags.

Former Crafting

Formerly, the Pen could be used to make Doodles and work with Notepads to make Journals, this has since been removed.
