Baby Face's Blaster

Aaah this gun takes me back. Roaming the streets, shooting up anything or anyone I felt like, being on the run from the law, hiding out while the big guns sweep through then BAM! YOU'RE DEAD PAL! Oh wait, that was yesterday. I have the best. Job. EVER!
Baby Face's Blaster publicity blurb

The Baby Face's Blaster is a community-created primary weapon for the Scout. It is a short, slightly modified lever-action shotgun with a wooden handle and single barrel.

The Baby Face's Blaster will slow the Scout down from 400 units/second, 133% of the normal movement speed, to 360 units/second, 120% of the normal movement speed. However, for every point of damage dealt with any weapon, the Scout builds up a "Boost" meter (though the minimum Boost gained from any damage dealt is 5%). As the Boost meter charges, the Scout's speed will increase linearly from 360 units/second to 520 units/second (173% of the normal movement speed). The Boost meter fills completely when the Scout deals 100 points of damage using any weapon. If the Scout jumps mid air while using the Baby Face's Blaster, the Boost meter is reduced by 25%, causing the Scout to lose momentum. Ground jumps will not reset the Boost meter. Similar to many On-Hit effect weapons, shooting an invulnerable enemy will still fill the Boost meter, and shooting disguised Spies will not grant boost.

The Baby Face's Blaster was contributed to the Steam Workshop under the name "The Brawler's Blaster".
