The Xeno-Basher is a melee weapon that shocks enemies, dealing 9 damage. It is a direct upgrade of the  Xeno-Zapper, with greater range and damage. Thus, it is advised to unlock and craft it as soon as possible. It also guarantees a stagger when it hits a charging Hog.

  • When fighting against fast-moving creatures, like Flying Crabs, Stingers or Fluffy-tailed Hogs, it is advised to use the Xeno-Basher over the  Rebar Gun as the latter is suitable only for slow-moving targets.
    • A Xeno-Basher can cleave more than 1 Flying Crab in a swing attack, but nothing larger.
  • It can be advantageous even when compared to the Rifle as it does not require ammo, thus saving your inventory slots.


  • It was originally called the Shock Baton in the alpha.
  • A small wrench keychain dangles from the hand guard and swings around loosely as the weapon is swung. Shocks continually travel up the center of the weapon like a Jacob's Ladder.
  • Occasionally, the pioneer will do a sort of wrist flick to activate the Xeno-Basher. The original method is to just hold it and activate the Xeno-Basher. Some people think this method looks cooler than the original method.
  • The handle is almost identical to the handle of the Xeno-Zapper.
