The Spy to the Engineer

The Homewrecker is a community-made melee weapon for the Pyro. It is a large, two-handed sledgehammer.

When wielded, this weapon deals double damage to enemy buildings. Its damage is capable of destroying a Mini-Sentry in one hit, and any other unattended building in two. The Homewrecker is also able to destroy an Sapper attached to a friendly building with a single swing. Unlike the Engineer's melee weapons, the Homewrecker cannot repair damaged buildings. Additionally, the Homewrecker will deal 25% less damage to enemies.

The kill icon for the Homewrecker was contributed by NeoDement.
