The Baton, referred to in the game files as the Stick, is a melee weapon that appears in both Hotline Miami and Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number.

Hotline Miami[edit | edit source]

The Baton can only be found on Chapter 13, Assault, as almost all enemies in that chapter, except the Police Chief mini-boss and Inspectors, are police officers and many of them carry batons. The baton functions similarly to the knife, but has its own execution animation.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number[edit | edit source]

The Baton returns in Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number and is much more common. This time, it can be found in the hands of the Police, Guard or Prisoner enemy factions, and as such only appear in levels that feature them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The night stick only appears in levels with police or guard enemies.
  • The second frame of Manny Pardo's stick execution incorrectly shows him swinging a bat. As a single-frame error it's almost completely unnoticeable in-game.
  • The Level Editor beta has a baton glitch where the execution animation will loop endlessly when playing as H.M. Hammarin.
  • In Assault, the Dennis Mask will start the player with a baton instead of the knife. Originally, choosing the Dennis Mask on this level crashed the game.
