Background Story

Along with other items, the Candy Cane was created to spread holiday cheer in depressing times. The fact was, however, the ingredients used for making this type of candy were no longer obtainable. So, in a useful and delicious manner, they were made packed to the brim with caffeine, which was common, to help survivors get over the fact that they were in a horror akin to hell and run away from hordes of zombies.


  • Eat it when you are running away from a horde.
  • Best when combined with a melee weapon.
    • This is best used with a horde clearing weapon such as the Katana.
      • This can give you some important immunity this way.
    • When used with the Bell, be sure not to encounter any Brutes, Leapers, Edgars nor Elementals, as they can all either stun or pin you, leaving you incapacitated.


  • The Candy Cane is a returning item from R2D.
    • Instead of giving infinite stamina, it replenished stamina.
