The Z6 riot control baton, also known simply as the Z6 baton, was a type of baton used by First Order riot control stormtroopers during the era of the Cold war.


A non-lethal melee weapon, the Z6 baton was comprised of a central shaft terminating in two contact conductor vanes[1] capable of resisting the plasma blade of a lightsaber. These collapsible vanes sparked with electric currents while in use,[3] and delivered a stunning shock against opponents.[2] The weapon was held via an adhesion grip that was capable of being magnatomically paired with the gloves of a First Order stormtrooper.[1] This magnetic grip allowed the baton to be spun in combat.[2]


The riot control stormtroopers of the First Order were trained to use non-lethal equipment as part of riot-control tactics, and utilized the Z6 baton, often in conjunction[2] with a lightweight composite betaplast ballistic riot shield.[1] Captain Cardinal, a key member of the First Order training hierarchy, was training recruits in the use of the baton aboard a Resurgent-class Battlecruiser when word came down that he was to be replaced by Phasma. After learning of Phasma's background, Cardinal confronted Phasma in a simulation room aboard the Absolution and both engaged in combat with one another using a Z6 baton.[4] The Z6, capable of shocking and stunning an opponent during combat, was used by FN-2199,[2] a trooper of the FN Corps, against the defector FN-2187 during the Battle of Takodana. Nines attacked Finn with his baton, pummeling the traitor's lightsaber until he was shot by a Wookiee bowcaster fired by Han Solo.[3]
