Baseball Bat


Show your sportsmanship—by hurling your enemies through the air!

All hit targets will also suffer 30 damage!

How to use

Make sure your hedgehog touches the target hedgehogs and/or objects (from which direction doesn't matter). Aim into the direction you want to whack and press the [Attack] key.

The baseball bat can whack hedgehogs and pretty much all land objects such as barrels and mines.

It also works through thin walls, your target just has to be in “reaching” distance.


  • If you can't send your target into the water or into mines, then make sure it gets as much falling damage as possible! (e.g. shoot almost straight up!)
  • Sometimes it can be very effective to shoot a barrel or even a mine (be quick!) to your enemies!
  • Don't forget that the baseball bat causes 30 damages also to barrels! So trying to throw a barrel that is already smoking is quite a risky thing to do!


  • Baseball bat has a fan fare and "Home Run" announcement for knocking hedgehogs long distances into the ocean.
