Daredevil's Billy Club from Daredevil Vol 1 159.jpg

Daredevil has been known to wield a multi-purpose weapon that has many different modes.

In his youth Matt Murdock stole a nightstick from a police officer and hid it in a locker at Fogwell's Gym.[1] Years later he retrieved it and used it to rescue a group of children kidnapped by the Kingpin.[2]

It's initial form is two billy clubs held together by an extendable cable. It can shift from a nunchaku- like weapon to a manrikigusari (a long rope/chain weapon with two weights on its ends), dual billy clubs which can be wielded in an Eskrima-like fashion, staff, or a cable with a grappling hook. The weapon can also be adjusted to combine both sticks into an Eskrima stick. Most notably, the billy club can be disguised as a blind man's cane, for use by DD's alter ego, Matthew Murdock. The weapon is held by a holster on the side of Daredevil's Suit on his left leg.

In early canon, the Billy Club had a retractable microphone, a miniature tape recorder, chamber for firing projectiles. The Billy Club has always been depicted with a wire cable which allows the club to be used as a grappling hook and it can also be used as a baton.

It appears a police radio was installed into the Billy Club.[3]
