The Firebrand
Unknown Shield

No charge impact range
+10% charge impact damage
-50% damage from fire
We've said in the past we don't like giving fire damage to non-Pyros. That concept still holds, but we couldn't resist in creating this demo shield. Its intended use is as an alternative Splendid Screen, with a fiery focus. You can burn anyone at any range, packing an extra punch with your charge damage, but you sacrifice your resistance to explosive damage. Naturally, it's for countering foes using the Backburner and the Fifth of July. That fire damage will help you deal with spies as well.
— Weapon announcement on the official Slag Forum

The Firebrand was a December 2011 Weapon of the Month, being a secondary weapon for the Demoman.

It is very similar to the Chargin' Targe, except that it grants no afterburn immunity or explosive resistance. This shield can deal a charge impact at any range, and will also burn the unfortunate victim.
