Australium Flame Thrower
Strange Flame Thrower - Kills: 0
Extinguishing teammates restores 20 health
Afterburn reduces Medi Gun healing and resist shield effects.
Alt-Fire: Release a blast of air that pushes enemies and projectiles and extinguishes teammates that are on fire.

Finishing a Two Cities Tour might even get you one of the most exceedingly, some might say preposterously rare items in the game: the Australium weapon. (Hushed silence. Then, from the back, a lone slow clap. Then: thunderous applause.)
Australium weapons publicity blurb

Australium weapons are a preposterously rare item classification introduced in the Two Cities Update. Similar to Botkiller weapons, they are unique reskins of specific weapons and only appear in Strange quality. They have a low chance of being awarded upon completing a full Advanced or Expert Tour of Duty of Mann vs. Machine in Mann Up mode. Built from the material Australium, each weapon is given a reflective, golden skin. The change is purely cosmetic and does not affect gameplay. Killing a player with an Australium weapon adds a golden glow behind its kill icon, but does not convert them into pure Australium statues, unlike the Golden Wrench, Saxxy and Golden Frying Pan. Some Australium weapons can be festivized.
