The Baseball Bat is a melee weapon in the Worms series. It first appeared in Worms: The Director's Cut as a super weapon that could be aimed in any direction, and was changed to a normal weapon with a more limited aiming range in the rest of the series.
The Baseball Bat is designed to launch Worms great distances into the water or onto mines. Since this is a melee weapon, it will only affect worms standing in front of the user. The weapon can launch a worm somewhere between straight forward and up to about 70 degrees from the horizontal.
This weapon will always deal 30 points of damage to the victim(s) plus any additional fall-damage.

The Baseball Bat is an excellent weapon for removing unwanted enemies.
With one swing you can launch them great distances across the landscape, often with 'wet' results. The Baseball Bat can cause up to 30 points of damage.
Remember not to waste the Baseball Bat when you can knock Worms into the water using other less useful weapons such as the Prod or the Dragon Ball. The Baseball Bat is useful in which you can repel other objects like mines and sentry guns.
Using the Baseball Bat
The user should make sure he/she is close to the enemy worm he/she wants to hit. It is advised to save the baseball bat for an occasion where the player can use it to send an enemy into the water.
