The baton is a melee weapon in Fallout 4. Variants include the security baton, the shock baton and the stun baton.


This is a collapsible model law enforcement baton, used by various police departments before the Great War. It is standard issue gear for Vault-Tec security forces, alongside the 10mm combat pistol.


The baton is the first melee weapon acquired in the game, lying on top of various containers and tables within Vault 111. It is a basic melee weapon with medium swing speed.
