Designed by the Archons to be both a melee weapon and a ranged weapon, the Battle Staff is approximately 6 feet in length, and is made out of a light-weight alloy. The Battle staff is curved where the wielder would typically grip it, and has a small firing stud located near the top of the staff. A blade protrudes out from the end, which is in fact a barrel.

In either mode, the blade emanates heat and slight electrical discharges when it is powered. When the Battle Staff is used as a ranged weapon, it drains two charges per shot to get the same damage; otherwise it can be fired on a lower setting, reducing the damage by half.
