Execution

From Team Fortress Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Execution is a taunt for the Pyro with the Scorch Shot equipped.

Upon taunting, the Pyro turns sideways and aims the Scorch Shot ahead, firing a single shot in the direction of the crosshair at the time the taunt was activated. If the flare hits a target at close range, it will deal 400 damage, killing anyone slow, unaware, or simply unfortunate enough to be in the way, save for an overhealed Heavy. At medium or long ranges, the flare only deals the standard 20 damage, but still inflicts afterburn damage.

Because the Scorch Shot's projectile will fire in the direction the crosshair was aiming as opposed to the direction the Pyro is aiming, the Execution taunt can be used to kill enemies directly above or below the Pyro, as well as enemies in any direction.

An Execution kill at close range will completely fill the Pyro's "Mmmph" bar if equipped with the Phlogistinator.

Unlike all other Attack taunts, the Execution taunt cannot be used to kill enemy players during Humiliation and Stalemates, as it uses ammunition.

Bugs

  • The flare can go through thin walls such as setup gates when fired at a correct angle.
  • Using the Execution taunt when out of ammo will still fire a flare.
  • The firing sound can only be heard by other players, not the player that uses the taunt.
  • The Pyro's arm distorts whilst executing the taunt.

Trivia

  • The taunt was featured in Meet the Pyro. In the Pyro's mind, he is blowing bubbles at a cherub version of the Scout. In reality, the Pyro is using the Scorch Shot to shoot the Scout at point-blank range.
