A Venom Baton is an item bred by the Shapers that can be used as a missile weapon. Venom Batons are one of the missile weapons of the Shaper and Rebel army. These items fire Venom Thorns at their enemies, dealing Poison Damage. Venom Batons have been seen being bred by other people than Shapers, even Serviles have successfully bred them without prior Shaper knowledge.

While the poison effect per turn can be useful, it is best not to rely on it as it is relatively weak compared to the Acid Baton.
