The Heavy on his new weapon

The Huo Long Heatmaker is a primary weapon for the Heavy. It is a wooden, antique, machine gun with team-colored portions. A traditional Chinese dragon's head is mounted on the muzzle of the gun. While deployed, a flashing ring of flame and smoke surrounds the user, which will light enemy players on fire and inflict afterburn damage. However, the Huo Long Heatmaker consumes 6 ammunition per second while spun up, even if not firing.

This item was awarded in Genuine quality to players who pre-purchased Sleeping Dogs on Steam before August 14, 2012.

Update history

August 2, 2012 Patch

  • The Huo Long Heatmaker was added to the game.


  • "Huo Long" is the Romanization for the Chinese word "火龍", which translates into "fire dragon".
  • The weapon was originally designed to be a firework cannon, but was changed into more of a gun shape at Valve's request.
