Baton is a new feature that recently added. It's probably not 100% quality and will need some more work.
The Baton is a Melee weapon, added in Pre-Alpha 1.8.3.
The Baton is the fourth best Melee weapon. It is a very long, as long as the Katana which is the second longest Melee weapon right behind the Cue Stick, yet weak weapon. Despite not inflicting much more damage than Fists, its length will allow you to beat your opponent in melee if he don't have any Melee weapon, or even a shorter Melee weapon. Strike fast and in succession.
