A Barbed Club is a Melee weapon which can be found throughout the world in 7 Days to Die. It can be crafted using the correct items and is both easy to craft and resource-friendly. It is a fairly common weapon and reasonably easy to find. This weapon does not require any form of Ammunition, its durability will last for 175 hits at which point it will be destroyed. Before being destroyed it is possible to Repair it using Metal Strips. While it cannot be dismantled, or scrapped it can be melted in a Forge or used as a source of Combustible fuel.
During combat, a Barbed Club is a fairly effective short range weapon and can kill an average Zombie with two direct hits to the head or nine hits or more to the body. It is more effective against one or two Zombies and will not be very effective when dealing with a group of Zombies at close quarters. It can be used quite effectively against single zombies when combined with the stealth of crouching to launch a sneak attack.
