Overkill. When you just keep on killing after everything is already dead. That’s a good way to describe this bat from The Forge. It’s got razorblade stuck in it, barbed wire wrapped around it, the word “Baller” on it cause well…that must add some sort of extra power. The model itself is very nicely detailed even down to the lil barbs on the wire. The textures? They’re good, not the best I’ve ever seen, but still damn good. Just wish the woodgrain on the bat popped a bit more.
I absolutely LOVE the fact it comes with an “on shoulder” version, cause let’s be real..holding weapons on your shoulder is ALWAYS damn cool. That version of the bat is just a prop, the actual combat bat doesn’t have a stance animation. I’m not sure if any of The Forge weapons actually have stance animations which I think is a problem. Another store that makes weapons, Eldritch, has a stance HUD where you can choose between different kinds of poses. That is what every damn blacksmithy should have! The combat animations are hmm..standard..and also weird. There’s a few where you’re ninja flip spinning through the air..doing that with a baseball bat just doesn’t seem to fit very well. I’d rather just have..you know..a baseball swing? It’s the same with AOs, for some reason every single jump in any AO is like a triple flip with two corkscrews. Give us some realistic animations for pity’s sake!
In any case, the bat is a stellar addition to a grungy, rough looking post-apocalyptic outfit. It would be a fine thing to fight zombies with, that’s for sure. You can go pick it up at the We Love Roleplay event. I give it…8/10 seeded watermelon slices, not as easy to eat as seedless, but still delicious.
