— Weapon announcement on the official Slag Forum
The Screaming Eagle is a melee weapon for Soldier, and was a Weapon of the Day. It is visually identical to the Half-Zatoichi.
When this weapon is active, the user will temporarily float in the air, losing all vertical velocity while keeping constant horizontal speed. It also crits if the user attacks while airborne after being propelled by one of his rockets, but the weapon cannot randomly crit, increases switching speed and greatly increases damage taken while active.
Also, hitting someone actively wielding the Half-Zatoichi or this weapon will result in an instant kill.
