Axtinguisher

From Team Fortress Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
This mighty axe guarantees critical hits on any enemy that’s currently on fire, although it’s significantly weaker against enemies who aren’t.
Axtinguisher publicity blurb

The Axtinguisher is an unlockable melee weapon for the Pyro class. It is a crudely constructed Fire Axe consisting of a slightly rusted axe-head, stained with blood and wrapped in barbed wire, affixed to a curved wooden handle with a fabric grip and a splintered end.

The weapon deals half the damage of the stock Fire Axe on non-burning players and does not roll for random critical hits; it may do so with the animation swing and electricity sound-effect, but will not actually achieve a critical hit with appropriate notification and increased damage. While attacking targets that are on fire, however, it is guaranteed to Mini-Crit from the front and critically hit from the back and does not suffer from reduced damage. When affected by a crit boost, the Axtinguisher crits like other weapons - dealing three times base damage - but still suffers the 50% damage penalty against non-burning opponents. If the target is on fire, but critical hits are prevented due to the Battalion's Backup, the Axtinguisher will deal the base damage of the Fire Axe. The weapon has no discernible effects against buildings, functioning identically to the Fire Axe.

The Axtinguisher is automatically given to any player who obtains 22 Pyro achievements.
