It's the Captain's Advanced Pulsetron Particle Electromagnetic Raygun! As seen in the movie, and only slightly altered with alien power sources!
C.A.P.P.E.R publicity blurb

The C.A.P.P.E.R is a community-created secondary weapon for the Scout and Engineer. It is a ray gun with team-colored fins and a well-worn, team-colored body (Orange for RED & Light Blue for BLU), implying extensive use. It has a small antenna protruding from the front of the gun, and a long silver wire down the lower half of the gun leading to a small rocket exhaust.

When fired, the bullets from the C.A.P.P.E.R have a unique style and particle effect that make it look to be shooting team-colored lasers, rather than traveling bullets, and a unique sound effect to match its looks.

Enemies killed by the C.A.P.P.E.R suffer a distinctive death by incineration, wherein they disintegrate into smoldering orange cinders that quickly fade away.

This weapon functions identically to the Pistol.

The C.A.P.P.E.R was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
