Atomizer

From Team Fortress Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Good Scouts drink Bonk. And good ones beat the crap out of every single chucklehead in their way! But this bat is the harder thing to bonk with.
Atomizer publicity blurb

The Atomizer is a community-created melee weapon for the Scout. It is an aluminum bat with a black ribbed grip, and the Bonk! logo emblazoned on it surrounded by team-colored stripes and bands.

The Atomizer grants the wielder the ability to triple jump, which deals 10 damage each third jump to the Scout. In addition, the attack speed of the weapon is slowed by 30%, and damage dealt to enemies is reduced by 20%. Despite this, normal amount of damage is dealt to non-player objects such as buildings. When performing a double or triple jump with the Atomizer equipped, a cloud of purple smoke will trail behind the Scout, as opposed to the normal white cloud.

Taunting with the Atomizer equipped will perform the Home Run kill taunt.

Trivia

  • The Atomizer was originally named The Atomic Punch.[1]
  • The self-damage from a successful triple-jump is typed as bullet damage, so bullet damage resistance (such as what can be purchased from an Upgrade Station) reduces the self-damage accordingly. Bullet damage resistance does not reduce the potency of the third jump.
    • Also as a result by healing the Scout who receives Atomizer's self-damage with Vaccinator set on bullet damage resistance Medic can lessen the self-damage and receive 25% of the damage as healing respectively.
