The walking cane has low damage per attack for a melee weapon. That being said, this medium-speed weapon can be upgraded to pierce armor with a slight boost in damage, and has one of the lowest AP costs of any weapon in the game. As a result, at lower levels the upgraded version can provide some of the highest rates of damage output available.
The walking cane does not require any perks to modify it.
