The Bleedthrower
Unknown Flamethrower
Creator: CHAWLZ
Inflicts Bleeding instead of Afterburn
Added a new concept, The Bleedthrower! Obviously not a complete weapon, but the idea's there. What it does is replaces afterburn with bleed, which comes with its own series of bonuses and downfalls. What you're going to like about it is that enemies who submerge themselves in liquids, or are covered in sweet, succulent Jarate will not be cleared of the status, and it also deals an extra point of damage per tick! Demoknights using the Charging Targe will cry a single drunken tear. Plus, use your Flaregun or Volcano Fragment to RACK UP that DoT damage! Wow! (Also it works on enemy Pyros but who cares about that). On the flipside, however, your combo weapons become EXTREMELY ineffective, since your foes are NOT ON FIRE. Also, Spies are going to be a lot harder to track, as the tiny bleed particles are just a smidgen less noticeable then, say, a huge French fireball.

NOTE: due to lack of proper information, all stats displayed here might not be the real stats of the weapon.

The Bleedthrower is a primary weapon for Pyro, and was a Weapon of the Day.

Unlike any other Flamethrower, it applies bleeding instead of afterburn which means the following things:

  • It deals an extra damage per tick, or 2 more per second
  • It cannot be cleared by water
  • It stacks with afterburn
  • It does not trigger flame-based crits such as the Axtinguisher
