The Heavy dealing with insubordinates

The Eviction Notice is a community-created melee weapon for the Heavy. It is a pair of brass knuckles with a flat grip and spikes on the bands.

This weapon has a 50% shorter attack interval than the Fists, allowing the Heavy to fire punches twice as fast. However, it deals 60% less damage than the default Fists, making its overall damage 20% lower than the Fists.
