This weapon delivers 25% less damage than the default Bat, but deals guaranteed critical hits whenever a player strikes a burning enemy with it, making it effective if used in conjunction with a friendly Pyro's afterburn, friendly Sniper's lit Huntsman arrow, friendly Soldier's charge shot with the Cow Mangler 5000 or a friendly Heavy using Huo-Long Heater. Additionally, the Sun-on-a-Stick grants the user 25% fire resistance while active.
