To celebrate the November 14/17 release of Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II from DICE and EA, all players who log into Battlefield 1will get a new melee weapon, the Totokia War Club, in a Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II Celebration Battlepack. Originally developed as a weapon of war on Fiji, the Totokia saw used on the brutal battlefields of World War 1.
The totokia (also pineapple club or beaked battle hammer) is a type of club or battlehammer from Fiji. The totokia was called the “pineapple club” because of the spiked ball behind the weapon’s beak. The name is a misnomer; the shape actually is modeled after that of the fruit of the pandanus. The spike (“beak”) and head of the weapon were used to puncture the skull of the enemy and crush the head. In addition to its functional use as a weapon of war, totokia were also status symbols.
