...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.

It was later contributed to the Steam Workshop, at Valve's request.

The backpack icon was contributed by smash.mn.
