Club

Club

A shaped stick, heavy at one end, for bashing enemies to death. This weapon is so old it's part of human biology. Evolutionary biologists say that a major reason humans can tilt our wrists side-to-side (instead of just forward-and-back like other primates) is to be able to better swing a club.

The club is a neolithic melee weapon that does a moderate amount of blunt damage and has a moderate-long cooldown. As a blunt weapon, it doesn't cause bleeding (unless a body part gets destroyed), and generally do more damage against armor when compared to sharp weapons.

Acquisition[edit]

Clubs can also be crafted at a crafting spot, fueled smithy, or electric smithy without any research required; with Stuff 40 Stuff (Metallic/Woody/Stony) and 1,200 ticks (20 secs) of work. They can also be purchased from any combat supplier or war merchant, or obtained from melee raiders drops.

Analysis[edit]

Clubs are generated without a quality level - in essence, all clubs are "normal." This makes them worth considering if you have no competent crafters yet. With underwhelming damage output, clubs only make sense as melee options in the early game; once you have craftsmen capable of reliably producing better than normal quality weapons, there is little reason to ever build a club again.

Although uranium clubs are effective weapons for use against armored foes, maces are clearly superior weapons, especially when high quality, for only 10 more material.

    Styles[edit]

    Ideoligions allow the selection of styles which then change the texture of the certain items and buildings when constructed by the colony. These style variants can be crafted if the colony has the selected style, or can be looted from raiders from factions with the requisite style.
