...I'll be waiting on ya with a whiff of the ol' brimstone. I'm a grim bloody fable... with an unhappy bloody end!
The Demoman on his old-timey bombs

A Whiff of the Old Brimstone is a community-created cosmetic item for the Demoman. It replaces the Demoman's six default grenade projectiles with four old-fashioned, fuse-and-gunpowder bombs, which are strapped to the Demoman's chest.

A Whiff of the Old Brimstone was originally known as the "The Bloody Bombs" when it was originally contributed, but the name was changed by Valve before implementation into the game. It was later contributed to the Steam Workshop, at Valve's request.

The backpack icon was contributed by smash.mn.
