The Nightstick is the second melee weapon found in Cry of Fear.

Overview

Simon finds it near a police car and inside an apartment. It's a bit more powerful than the switchblade, but the swinging speed is a little slow.

Curiously, it can be dual wielded with the Switchblade to deal more melee damage, but can't be picked up twice, to wield two Nightsticks at the same time.

Advantages

  • More damage than the switchblade
  • Can effectively kill weaker monsters to conserve ammunition
  • It can be found later in other areas if you missed the first one

Disadvantages

  • Slow swing speed
  • Has attack delay

Tactics

  • Due to the slow swing of the nightstick, it is advised that the player attack while moving towards a monster to get the strike in while avoiding damage.
