— Pomson 6000 publicity blurb
The Pomson 6000 is a primary weapon for the Engineer. It is a retro-futuristic ray gun with many team-colored portions.
The weapon fires an unreflectableprojectile beam that consumes no ammunition. Though this weapon does not use the traditional ammunition reserve used for most weapons, it still must be reloaded. This is done by pumping a slide on the right side of the weapon. Shots from the Pomson 6000 can interfere with the signature abilities of Medics and Spies; if struck, a Medic will lose 10% of his ÜberCharge, while a Spy will lose 20% of his Cloak (Cloak is drained after damage is dealt, so Dead Ringer Spies can still feign death to a Pomson shot). In addition, the shot can also light Huntsman arrows on fire. Although not listed in its stats, the Pomson 6000 suffers an 80% damage penalty to Engineer Buildings.
Enemies killed by the Pomson 6000 suffer a distinctive death by vaporization: they turn black, hover in mid-air while performing a specific disintegration animation surrounded by team-colored particles, and then disappear into ashes.
