Baton translates from French roughly "to hand over" or in this case to "pass through". The Baton is a voodoo weapon & item that can fire flame at enemies or stab them when they are near. It also has another hidden ability to warp or 'pass through' chair-shaped voodoo altars called Ether to reach previously inaccesable places. It uses skulls but does not need them to stab enemies up close or warp if it has run out of the voodoo skulls. It can only be used in Deadside & the Asylum.
