The Scout on edible weaponry

The Candy Cane is a melee weapon for the Scout. It is an oversized, white and team-colored candy cane with a like-colored ribbon wrapped around it in a double-looped parallel bow.

This weapon has the same basic stats as the default Bat, but small health packs drop from slain enemies if they are killed with any weapon while the Candy Cane is equipped. Health packs do not drop on any kill that counts as being "finished off" and from feigned deaths. The Candy Cane drops a secondary health kit in addition to the one dropped normally in Medieval Mode. Equipping the Candy Cane makes the Scout 25% more vulnerable to damage from explosives such as rockets, grenades, stickybombs, the Ullapool Caber, and the Soldier's Grenade taunt kill.

The kill icon for the Candy Cane was contributed by Psyke .
