The mace is a melee weapon that does a moderate amount of blunt damage, and has a moderate cooldown. As a blunt weapon, mace attacks don't cause bleeding (unless a body part gets destroyed), and generally fares better against armor when compared to sharp weapons.

Acquisition

Maces can be crafted at the fueled smithy or electric smithy once the Smithing research has been completed; with Building Material (steel, wood, plasteel, etc.) 50 Stuff (Wood/Metals) and 6,000 ticks (1.67 mins) of work.

Maces can also be purchased from outlander and orbital combat suppliers, or from outlander and pirate raiders drops.

Analysis

Compared to its neolithic 'ancestor', the club, the mace is somewhat more expensive to produce and has a slightly shorter cooldown period. The mace is best when made with uranium rather than plasteel; though slightly slower, the high damage multiplier will result in a higher damage output, and also better armor penetration.
