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.

While the Eviction Notice is the active weapon, the Heavy moves 15% faster at 88% base movement speed, a rate of 265 Hammer units per second (approximately 11 m/h or 18 km/h). In addition, the Eviction Notice grants a 3 second speed boost upon hitting an enemy, similarly to the Disciplinary Action. The Heavy's speed with the Eviction Notice deployed combined with the on-hit speed boost totals at 119% movement speed, a rate of 357 Hammer units per second (approximately 15 m/h or 24 km/h).

The weapon itself 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.

The main downside of the Eviction Notice is a 20% vulnerability to all damage sources while the weapon is active. Unlike the Gloves of Running Urgently, this effect is removed upon putting the weapon away.

Trivia

  • Eviction is the act of forcibly expelling someone from a property. The term is used as a euphemism for murder by the Mafia.
  • The Eviction Notice was originally named the Soviet Slammers; the knuckles were colored pewter rather than brass, the tips of the spikes were coated in fresh blood, and the grips had the Mann Co. logo stamped onto them.
  • Very early concept art for the Eviction Notice shows they were originally intended to be barbed wires wrapped around the Heavy's knuckles.[1]
