Aaah this gun takes me back. Roaming the streets, shooting up anything or anyone I felt like, being on the run from the law, hiding out while the big guns sweep through then BAM! YOU'RE DEAD PAL! Oh wait, that was yesterday. I have the best. Job. EVER!
Baby Face's Blaster publicity blurb

The Baby Face's Blaster is a primary weapon for the Scout. It is a short, but slightly modified lever-action shotgun with a wooden handle and single barrel.

The Baby Face's Blaster is 40% more accurate when compared to the stock Scattergun, but does 30% reduced damage. This weapon will slow the Scout down from 400 units/second, 133% of the normal movement speed, to 260 units/second, 86% of the normal movement speed. This is 20 units/second faster than a Soldier and 20 units/second slower than a Demoman, making the Scout the third slowest class while the weapon is equipped. However, for every point of damage dealt with any weapon, the Scout builds up a "Boost" meter (though the minimum Boost gained from any damage dealt is 5%). As the Boost meter charges, the Scout's speed will linearly increase from 260 units/second to 517.5 units/second (173% of the normal movement speed). The Boost meter fills completely when the Scout deals 99 points of damage using any weapons. If the Scout jumps while using the Baby Face's Blaster, the Boost meter is reset, causing the Scout to lose momentum and return to moving at 260 units/second.

The Baby Face's Blaster was contributed to the Steam Workshop under the name "The Brawler's Blaster".

  • Baby Face's Blaster was added to the game.

July 5, 2012 Patch

  • Added recoil/reload/draw/crit forces for the Baby Face's Blaster.
  • Added more detail to the reloads for the Scattergun, the Baby Face's Blaster, the SMG, and The Cleaner's Carbine.


  • This weapon shares the Boost meter with Soda Popper's Hype meter.
  • Killing an enemy with Home Run taunt won't fill the Boost.
  • On 4:3 resolutions, the Boost Meter will overlap the objective HUD.


  • This weapon's name is a reference to Lester Joseph Gillis, AKA "Baby Face Nelson", a 1930s bank robber.
  • The appearance of this weapon is intended to loosely resemble that of a sawn-down Browning Auto-5 Shotgun, as wielded by Bonnie Parker of the famous criminal duo Bonnie and Clyde, who were also 1930s bank robbers.
