The Demoman

The Scottish Handshake is a community-made melee weapon for the Demoman. It is a dark brown glass rum bottle, apparently made by the Demoman's DeGroot family ancestors in 1680.

This weapon functions identically to the Bottle, although it does not shatter after a successful critical hit.

The Scottish Handshake was later contributed to the Steam Workshop, at Valve's request.

The backpack icon was contributed by error (Steam account not in dictionary)

Trivia

  • The term "Scottish Handshake" refers to the stereotype that a person of Scottish heritage greets people with physical assault, due to their stereotypical violent nature.
  • The year the rum was supposedly made, 1680, was chosen because it was the year the notorious pirate Blackbeard was born.
  • The weapon was originally showcased in the Medieval Update, together with the rest of Swashbuckler's Swag set.
