The Problem Solver is a removed melee weapon for the Engineer. It is visually identical to the Frying Pan.

Passively, this weapon makes the wearer takes much less damage from critical hits, but can only carry 180 metal at a time and cannot carry the intelligence in Capture the Flag. Compared to the wrench, it deals less damage but fires faster, and also causes hits to apply explosive knocback on their targets. Also, not hitting a wall or a player with a hit will cause it to damages the user instead, fully applying the knockback.
