The walking cane is a weapon in Fallout 76.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

A simple wooden walking cane with a rubber stopper for added traction used as a makeshift weapon. It is a one-handed melee weapon with decent damage and medium swing speed. The weapon bests the assaultron blade, with 2 more damage at max level.

With mods the max base damage on this weapon is fourth for one-handed melee under the Blade of Bastet, sheepsquatch club, and the ski sword. Max damage is achieved with the barbed mod getting 48.72 base damage. However, since the Blade of Bastet is not possible to get with desired legendary prefixes, it is considered by some the third-best one-handed melee.
