"24" polycarbonated side-handled nightstick."
Grand Theft Auto V description on Ammu-Nation and Social Club.

The Nightstick is a melee weapon found across the Grand Theft Auto franchise.

Design

3D Universe

The Nightstick is a law enforcement T-Baton, believed to be based on the Monadnock PR-24 Control Device Baton.

The weapon is distinguished by its black finish and is usually issued to police officers. Characters will wield and use it in a similar manner to the Baseball Bat.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

The Nightstick in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars retains the design as in the previous generation, only that, as seen on the HUD, it is more rounded.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Nightstick in Grand Theft Auto V gains better visual detailings than previous iterations, while keeping the basic shape and the black color. In the enhanced version, it has an LSPD police officer badge emblazoned just above its handle. This is more easily noticeable in first-person view.

Performance

3D Universe

Although not as powerful as the Baseball Bat, it has the advantage of being a single-handed weapon and thus, a quicker running speed. The Nightstick is best suited for fast melee attacks, while keeping a stronger force to knock enemies than the Fist.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

The Nightstick is versatile in terms of speed and has average range, allowing the player to take out enemies before they can counter-attack.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Nightstick can hit targets quickly, thanks to its compact size. The longer length gives the weapon better range than the fist, though not as much as most club-based weapons. Damage-wise, it is identical to the Hammer and the Crowbar.

Being a single-handed weapon, it can be used while on a motorcycle, albeit only in Grand Theft Auto Online.

Trivia

Dead Man Walking GTAV Truncheon

  • The weapon was meant to re-appear in Grand Theft Auto IV, but it was cut before release [citation/verification needed]. The same applies for Grand Theft Auto III.
