The Demoman

The Pain Train is a community-made melee weapon for the Soldier and the Demoman. It is a broken wooden handle with dark tape, outfitted with a large railroad stake and several bent nails stuck in the top.

When equipped, the weapon increases the capture rate of its wielder, counting him as two people and putting him at par with the Scout when capturing control points and pushing Payload carts. The Pain Train can be used effectively in conjunction with rocket or stickybomb jumping to quickly approach and capture points. As a down side, the wielder will be 10% more vulnerable to bullet-firing weaponry such as the Minigun, Scattergun, Shotgun, Sniper Rifle, or Sentry Guns.

During a critical hit, the Soldier swings it from the left in a backhand motion, while the Demoman swings it downwards in a quick, swift motion.

The kill icon for the Pain Train was contributed by Galago.
