The Destinguished Gentleman
Missing Icon
Price: 1 Shilling
Combo System
On three hits in a row: Mini-Crits, purges Bleeding, Burning and fluids
+25% switch speed
+10% fire rate
The first shot does -40% damage, the second shot does -20% damage. The third does mini-crit and remove status debuffs. Overall, you deal -25% damage with this weapon (if you always land all 3 shots, it's a far worse revolver if you aren't accurate), but the added switch speed and utility should make this a balanced, compelling choice for some spies, over the afterburn belt or the enforcer.
— Weapon announcement on the official Slag Forum

The Destinguished Gentleman is a primary weapon for the Spy, and was a Weapon of the Day.

This weapon passively increases the user's switching speed, and it also fires sightly faster than the default Revolver. But the main feature is the combo system: landing consecutives shots without missing will causes the damage to increase for each shot, albeit the first two hits will in fact deal less damage than the Revolver, and the third hit will mini-crit and remove bleeding, afterburn, Jarate and Mad Milk.

  • Accuracy is the most important thing to have when using this weapon, as it deals less damage if you misses your target and it will also prevents you of using the purging aspect.
  • Landing the 3 shots will on average deal 8.5% less damage per shot at medium-close range, but at long range, due to mini-crits not being affected by damage fall off, will deal on average 36.7% more damage per shot.
