The design of this weapon is simple: A mid-range weapon for the Pyro. It has excellent damage potential. But tapping into that potential is quite difficult. [...] It's great to use before you're about to rush headlong into the fray, it's decent at finishing off runners, but where it shines is wearing down your enemies. It will take a little bit to get used to, but it should be a fun and situationally useful weapon for the Pyro.
— Part of weapon announcement on the official Slag Forum

The Fifth of July is a secondary weapon for the Pyro. It was a December 2011 Weapon of the Month.

It can load up to 12 flares (twice the standard clip size of the Shotgun) that it can quickly fires, and reloads faster while also holding more ammo, but at the cost of highly reduced afterburn duration. Also, while not stated in its stats, it will always mini-crits its target(s).

Damage and function timesEdit

NOTE: damage values are based on what the announcement stated : "each flare always minicritting its target, [...] which is approximately 180 damage a clip".
