With this mean pistol no one runs from the Scout.
Winger publicity blurb

The Winger is a community-made secondary weapon for the Scout. It is a pistol with an inset radioactivity symbol on its grip and a small pair of stylized yellow wings emblazoned on the slide over the magazine.

This weapon deals 15% more damage than the default Pistol, but can only load 5 rounds at a time.

  • Fixed first-person clip reloading.[1]


  • The clip of the weapon sticks out of the gun after completing the reload animation, until the player switches weapons.


  • Unlike the default Pistol, the Winger does not feature a hammer in the back which would strike the firing pin. During development, the creator originally included a hammer, but later removed it to differentiate it from the Pistol, stating that the Winger operated on an internal-pin. [2]
