The Porcupine is the fifth one-handed club available to players.

Its primary attack is a 3 hit attack combo with double damage on the last hit. Its slower secondary attack deals 2.5x damage and 2x staggering.

Its combination of blunt and pierce damage make it an all-around effective weapon against many enemies.
