How does a Z6 Riot Control Baton resist lightsabers?
The lightsaber resistant Z6 Riot Control Baton is a non-lethal weapon wielded by the specialized riot control stormtroopers in the First Order. The weapon, intended for riot control, features twin contact conductor vanes that stun opponents with a non-lethal shock. The conductor vanes, which crackle with electric current during use, also enable the Z6 Riot Control Baton to resist a lightsaber blade.
